“You have to get away from them. You have to get as far away as you can otherwise they'll kill you with their lives. They don't know what they do. They are careless with themselves and they take too much for granted. They make their shortcomings your problem. The only way to keep your head above it and heal your wounds is to crawl away.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“How memories lie to us. How time coats the ordinary with gold. How it breaks the heart to go back and attempt to re-live them. How crushed we are when we discover that the gold was merely gold-plating thinly coated over lead, chalk and peeling paint.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“When you title yourself, you immediately lend yourself to all kinds of pretension”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“I want someone who can sit me down, shut me up, tell me ten things I don't already know and make me laugh. I don't care what you look like, just turn me on. And if you can do that, I will follow you on bloody stumps through the snow. I will nibble your mukluks with my own teeth. I will do your windows. I will care about your feelings. Just have something in there.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“It's funny how people think that they have "a right to life". Now isn't that the biggest load you ever heard? You don't have a right to shit your pants on Sunday. Let's take it back to the jungle. Where the fuck are your rights there? No layers in the jungle. Civilization has allowed the weak to survive. You can sit back and be an overweight, apathetic piece of shit, smoke your dope and still survive because you have a right to life.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“She liked me because she said that we both hated everything and knew that friendship was an act of desperation. She said that for a man I was alright. She said that people were half-way and if it was up to her a lot of people would get killed and a lot of men would be walking around without their balls. She said that they should go on sale for women to hang off their rearview mirrors.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues

“Look, it's a monster. He's walking alone. Look, he's pulling something out of his pocket. He threw it on the ground. Let's go see what it is. It's a black box. You open it... ok... Look, it's sorrow, misery and pain. It's loneliness and longing. Boy, he'll be sorry he lost these.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“What goes best with a cup of coffee? Another cup.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“I'm not close to people, I am close to myself. I spend a lot of time inside.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
“I hope I don't dream tonight. Sometimes you can get so far in yourself that you don't know who you are.”
Henry Rollins, Black Coffee Blues
