That's the System


                   I think the way you stop it is to shrug it off. Or take it with your tongue in your cheek. Sure that's the system. At any rate it's the system that works for you. It's the automatic control board that keeps you out there where nothing matters, where it's only you and the keyboard and nothing else. Because it's gotta be that way. You gotta stay clear of anything serious.
