Quotes: American Psycho
You see me with your eyes.
I wear a good disguise,
but somehow you still think you know me.
My life is empty now.
My heart is blackened out,
but I gotta fit in and I also gotta be
honest with myself
before I kill somebody else.
The world has done a number on me.
Compassion is devoid.
I'm always so annoyed.
My selfishness, it now consumes me.

But that's okay 'cause no one seems to recognize me anyway.
I'm mistaken for somebody else constantly throughout my day.
I won't get caught 'cause no one knows, that I'm an American psycho.

I know what brand you wear.
I know what kind of pair
of pants and shoes and shirts you have on.
I dine expensively,
with a hard body next to me,
but she likely won't see your next thought.

But that's okay 'cause no one seems to recognize me anyway.
I'm mistaken for somebody else constantly throughout my day.
I won't get caught 'cause no one knows, that I'm an American psycho.
It's so sad, we only seem to care
about our face and hair,
and what makes us look good.
Your business card is better.
You have a bigger room.
That could lead to your doom,
and I really think it should.
Did you make it to the top of the world just to die?

I own all the name brands.
I have a nicer tan.
I exercise and work out daily.
I rent some videos,
watch the Patty Winter show.
My mind it thinks irrationally.

But that's okay 'cause no one seems to recognize me anyway.
I'm mistaken for somebody else constantly throughout my day.
I won't get caught 'cause no one cares, that I'm an American psycho.
It's so sad, we only seem to care
about our face and hair,
and what makes us look good.
Your business card is better.
You have a bigger room.
That could lead to your doom,
and I really think it should.
Did you make it to the top of the world just to die?
Oh, did you make it to the top of the world just to die?
You're gonna die!
Calibretto, "American Psycho"

Do you like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too New Wave for my tastes. But when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humor. ... In '87, Huey released this, Fore!, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is "Hip to be Square", a song so catchy, most people probably don't listen to the lyrics. But they should! Because it's not just about the pleasures of conformity, and the importance of trends, it's also a personal statement about the band itself. Hey Paul! AHHHHHH! TRY TO GET A RESERVATION AT DORSIA NOW YOU FUCKING STUPID BASTARD! AHHHHHH YOU... FUCKING... BASTARD!
Patrick Bateman, American Psycho
