Babelfishing Poetry: "It's Abandonment Tuesday"

Hello blog peeps.  How's everything going?  Hunky-dory?  Yes?  Fabulous!  You are just in time for some Babelfishing poetry, where I take song lyrics, run them through an on-line translator such as (but not necessarily) Babelfish, convolute the punctuation a bit, and wind up with a quirky kind of poem.

A few days ago something made me think of this song by Everclear, "Santa Monica," so it's the featured song this week (watch video here).  Enjoy. 

It's Abandonment Tuesday

I live by your Holy Spirit,
on the West Coast of the dream.
I do not want to stop.

I will not be this stupid game.
Big black boots and an old box.
I think the new location.

I will not be wrong
that I'm happy that I do not sleep
in the remembered path.

I have two palms, will
read and discuss it again.
Sea life, us.

It's Abandonment Tuesday.
Burst, swimming,
you want to see in the world.

Are you hungry if you
want to get empty of all content?
In particular, I do not want to be.

I do not want to talk on crutches.
Walk to the right of the Brand New Day.
And mental growth is the correct way.

A mistake?  Not us.
I do not want
to sleepwalk through the chorus.

I would like a small sun.
One mottled look,
