you're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan

Guess i should be happy for you, for your success and all that
But your fame ain't got nothing for us
I was your booster babe, back when no one else cared (oh yeah, oh yeah)
You know i celebrated you (i'm hard for you girl),
Back when no one else even thought to

Of Montreal, Triphallus To Punctuate

Staring out over the bridge
A million photo flashes from the water down below
Dawn light bouncing through the mist
The roar of traffic and the crack of police radios
When they ask her name
Could she please explain
She simply chooses to say...
Nothing

And the radio man says:
It is a beautiful night out there in Los Angeles
You live in Los Angeles
And you are going to Reseda -
We are all, in some way or another, going to Reseda someday - to die

And these initial shockwaves can't last
they're going to want to see the real love -- soon
they're going to want to see the real bombs -- in the air
they're going to want to hear the real songs -- in their ears
they're going to burn the flagpoles when they find out
they're going to cry with salty

tears

and they'll call themselves witnesses for the truth
and they'll speak the broken language of love

Got it drilled in my leg because I fucked my head
So when I'm all alone I'll always have one friend.
And when I wish I was dead and I hate my friends
I must repeat this till' the end
I still have a home even if my home's a van.

you see we work hard play hard
man I gotta stay charged
can't sleep
tired out
trouble on my radar
runnin' round live wire
had another red bull
everybody's running baby
let me come and get a pull

Stretched out on the grass
A boy and a girl
Savoring their oranges
Giving their kisses like waves exchanging foam

Stretched out on the beach
A boy and a girl
Savoring their limes
Giving their kisses like clouds exchanging foam

Stretched out underground
A boy and a girl
Saying nothing, never kissing
Giving silence for silence

(Poem by Octavio Paz, music by Eric Whitacre)

I love myself
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

I don't want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin those things you used to do

As I was motorvatin over the hill
I saw Maybellene in a Coupe de Ville
A Cadillac rollin on the open road
Don't nothin outrun my V-8 Ford
Cadillac doin bout 95
Bumper to bumper, rollin side to side

Maybellene, why can't you be true?
Oh, Maybellene, why can't you be true?
You done started back doin those things you used to do

There’s nothing to live for
When I'm sleeping alone
And I wash the windows outside in
Hopes that the glare will bring you around

I, I feel like I wouldn't like me if I met me
I, I feel like you wouldn't like me if you met me

White zin in a big tall cup
Half a pound of shrimp and we got ourselves a party
Don't bring no condoms cause we ain't gonna use 'em

Shrimp and White Wine (x12)

Ladies, get ready for some sex with some boys
We're comin' over with a box of chardonnay now
We'll have to pick up the shrimp on the way

Shrimp and White Wine (x11)

Take your clothes off

He's the only player
with an icy stare

A look like that only makes me look older
you put your head on the coldest shoulder

if it makes you sad
(it makes me sadder)
if you ever miss me, I will always miss you more
In North Dakota, we can only waste our time

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me
That pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear
Is never ending, controlling

I can't seem to find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence)
(I'm convinced that there's)
(Just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before so insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled
Itself upon me distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence)
(I'm convinced that there's)
(Just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before so insecure

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

Crawling in my skin
These wounds they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing, confusing what is real

There's something inside me
That pulls beneath the surface
Consuming
(Confusing what is real)
This lack of self control I fear
Is never ending, controlling
(Confusing what is real)

Blind date with the chancer, we had oysters and dry lancers
And the check, when it arrived, we went dutch, dutch, dutch, dutch
A redder shade of neck on a whiter shade of trash
And this emery board is giving me a rash

I'm flat out
You're so beautiful to look at when you cry
Freeze, don't move
You've been chosen as an extra in the movie adaptation of the sequel to your life

A shady lane, everybody wants one, a shady lane, everybody needs one
Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh your god, oh his god, oh her god
It's everybody's god, it's everybody's god, it's everybody's god, it's everybody's god
The worlds collide, but all that we want is a shady lane

Glance, don't stare
Soon you're being told to recognize your heirs
No, not me
I'm an island of such great complexity

Distress surrounds
In the muddy peaceful center of this town
Tell me off
In the hotel lobby right in front of all the bellboys and the over-friendly concierge

A shady lane, everybody wants one, a shady lane, everybody needs one
Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh my god, oh your god, oh his god, oh her god
It's everybody's god, it's everybody's god, it's everybody's god, it's everybody's god
The worlds collide, but all that I want is a shady lane

She took the Oldsmobile out past Condor Avenue
And she locked the car and slipped past
Into rythmic quietude
Lights burning
Voice dry and hoarse
I threw the screen door like a bastard back and forth
The chimes fell over each other
I fell onto my knees
The sound of the car driving off made me feel diseased
Sick shouting like you hear at the fairground
Now I'm picking up to put away anything of yours that's still around
I don't know what to do with your clothes or your letters
It'll make a whisper out of you

She took the oldsmobile out past condor avenue
The fairground's lit a drunk man sits
By the gate she's driving through
Got his hat tipped bottle back in between his teeth
Looks like he's buried in the sand at the beach
I can't think about you driving off to leave barely awake
To take a little nap while the road is straight
I wish that car had never been discovered
They took away the bottle and the hat he was under
That's the one thing that he could never do
And it'll make a whisper out of you

She took the Oldsmobile out past Condor Avenue
Cops were running around the scene
Looking for some kind of clue
They never get uptight when a moth gets crushed
Unless a light bulb really loved him very much
I'm lying down
Blowing smoke from a cigarette
Little whisper smoke signs that you'll never get
You're in your Oldsmobile driving by the moon
Headlights burning bright ahead of you
And someone's burning out, out on Condor Avenue
Trying to make a whisper out of you

What a shitty thing to say
Did you really mean it?
You never said a word to me about what passed between us
So now I'm leaving you alone
You can do whatever the hell you want to

Let's not say what we did
And play by ear
Back to square one

Stay and be
hanged by me
By you

Hell in here,
Must be hell in there,
Large as life and twice as natural
States can be saved without us
Sharing the joy and not of sorrow

Let's all go to Lilly White's party
Let's not reinvent the wheel
Let's not open that can of worms

Sharks in the dunk tank, vipers in the garden
Locusts stole the groceries out the local Farmer's Market
All God's critters hold positions
Some are violent, some are victims
Each alive is an equal and vital piston I support

So when the piranhas honor New York
My daddy long legs dangled and mangled for sport
And while I bring in every dink in the kingdom with open wings
It all boils down to them shit-soaked pigs

The pigs, the pigs, the dregs of what y'all aim for
The gluttonous muddy stomachs under the pudgy cakehole
Two-track braniac using the food and payroll
To chew up and consume every cookie, crumb, and peso

And place a cloven hoof on the lucrative when convenient
As the bourbon-odor smokers' coughs smolder off the Cohiba
If Noah had the benefit of hindsight on his ship
He could've snatched two unicorns and left behind the motherfucking pigs

Default I never really noticed the lyrics to this song as a kid

Say, do you remember that guy Larry next door?
Well, he always was the neighborhood clown
Like the time he pulled my pants off and took those color pictures
And posted copies all over town

Or the time that he dumped toxic waste on my lawn
Or those wacky prank phone calls from midnight 'til dawn
What a crazy kid Larry was, always fooling around

Boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try

Say, do you remember when I lost all my hair
'Cuz Lar gave me that Nair shampoo?
And hey, how 'bout the day he put Bengay inside my jockstrap
And filled my toothpaste tube up with glue?

All those wedgies he gave, all those shoe strings he tied
All those brownies he made with the Ex Lax inside
Oh Lar, I swear, it was a laugh a minute with you

Boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try

You know, I couldn't help but laugh
Even though he treated me like slime
Remember when he cut my car in half?
Well, he really got me good that time!

Say, do you remember when I broke in Larry's house late at night
And tied his mouth with a rag?
Then I dragged him by his ankles to the middle of the forest
And stuffed him in a big plastic bag?

If the cops ever find him, who knows what they'd say?
But I'm sure if old Lar were still with us today
He would have to agree with me, it was a pretty good gag!

Boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try

Oh, boy, what a joker, what a funny, funny guuuuuuy
I'll never forget about Larry, no matter how I try
No matter how I try

Electric guitar gets run over by a car on the highway
This is a crime against the state
This is the meaning of life

To tune this electric guitar
Tune this electric guitar
Tune this electric guitar
Tune this electric guitar

Electric guitar is brought in to a court of law
The judge and the jury
Twelve members of the jury
All listening to records
Is this is a crime against the state?
This is the verdict they reach

Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar
Never listen to electric guitar

Electric guitar is copied
The copy sounds better
Call this the law of justice
Call this freedom and liberty

I thought I perjure myself right in front of the jury
Is this a crime against the state?
No, this is the verdict they reach

Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar
Someone controls electric guitar

Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
If you stay you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks
Hung up on romancing

We bought a lot of things
to keep you warm and dry
And a funny old crib on which the paint won't dry
I bought you a pair of shoes
A trumpet you can blow
And a book of rules
On what to say to people
when they pick on you
'Cause if you stay with us you're gonna be pretty Kookie too

Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
If you stay you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks
Hung up on romancing


And if you ever have to go to school
Remember how they messed up
this old fool
Don't pick fights with the bullies
or the cads
'Cause I'm not much cop at punching other people's Dads
And if the homework brings you down
Then we'll throw it on the fire
And take the car downtown

Will you stay in our Lovers' Story
If you stay you won't be sorry
'Cause we believe in you
Soon you'll grow so take a chance
With a couple of Kooks
Hung up on romancing

No star is o'er the lake,
Its pale watch keeping,
The moon is half awake,
Through gray mist creeping,
The last red leaves fall round
The porch of roses,
The clock hath ceased to sound,
The long day closes.

Sit by the silent hearth
In calm endeavour,
To count the sounds of mirth,
Now dumb for ever.
Heed not how hope believes
And fate disposes:
Shadow is round the eaves,
The long day closes.

The lighted windows dim
Are fading slowly.
The fire that was so trim
Now quivers lowly.
Go to the dreamless bed
Where grief reposes;
Thy book of toil is read,
The long day closes.

what's going on?
could this be my understanding?
it's not your fault
i was being too demanding
i must admit it's my pride that made me distant
all because i hoped that you'd be someone different
