For the Folk in The Cheap Seats

Don’t come over here. Don’t stand there looking at me. Don’t sit down and get comfortable and smoke my shit and watch sexy music videos like you live here, or like I really know you, or like this is actually something other than what it is. Don’t you fucking lean into me. Don’t put your…
