Moron Mail...or Jane's Addiction Lyric?

Yes, it's once again time to wade though the nonsensical and the non sequiturs and play

MORON MAIL OR JANE'S ADDICTION LYRIC!!!

Below are four excerpts. Three of them are lyrics from a Jane's Addiction song. One is a genuine letter that appeared in the Strib today. Zero make any kind of sense whatever. See if you can guess which is which. Fun!

Let's begin:

A)

I was standing in the shower thinking about what makes a man. An outlaw or a leader? I'm thinking about power...The ways a man could use it or be destroyed by it. The water hits my neck. And I'm pissing on myself...

Standing in the shower thinking...

Standing in the shower thinking about a man I know don't like me. He don't like the place I'm headed. Same place he's headed...I know he'd beat me to it. If he could but he won't do it. But he would man, if he could.

And the water is piping hot. The water is piping hot. It beats upon my neck, and I'm pissing on myself.

Standing in the shower thinking...

B)

Pig mounts sow, when he's wound. Pig's in zen. Pig's in zen. Pig eats shit, but only when he hungers. Pig's in zen. Pig's in zen. Talking about the pig. The pig. The pig - uh Pa-pa-pa-pa-pig. Yeah. Goddamned pig.

C)

I don't understand. Sen. McCain made fun of Barack Obama going to Germany and other places but now he sends his wife (a beer distributor's daughter) to Georgia. Perhaps Obama could send Wally the beerman over as a countermove.

D)

One come a day. The water will run. No man will stand for things that he had done... Hurrah! And the water will run. One come a day, the water will run. No man will stand for things that he had done... Hurrah! And the water will run... Will Run! Will Run!

Gimmie that! Gimmie that - your automobile. Turn off that smokestack and that goddamn radio. Hum - hum along with me... Hum along with the t.v. Oh oh oh oh. Oh oh oh oh oh. Oh oh. No one's gonna stop!
