I like the lyrics a lot. Now, you could leave it like this and keep
the quite surreal looseness, or you could midify it and tighten it all
up a bit, add some drums, etc.

Worth playing with, but the sound is quite nice as it is. I wouldn't
recommend doing everything in the same way, but as one track in more
polished company, I think it would work really well.

Good work.
