The face forgives the mirror
The worm forgives the plow
The question begs the answer
Can you forgive me somehow?
Maybe when our story's over
We'll go where it's always spring
The band is playing our song again
And all the world is green.

She got a natural way, her hips sway furious, yet luxorious
Carries herself like the cutest most purdiest
Thing you've seen, this side of the bay
Go about her business so purpose-fully
She got razor sharp wit and she just won't quit
Flauntin it, body built like a house made outta bricks
She got the smile, the style and finesse
And bounded with the blessed and profound intellect
Select few have ever seen her butt naked
Elitism is positing that your taste is equivalent to quality, you hate "Hamlet" does it make it "bad"? If you think so, you're one elite motherfucker.

The most important protest sign ever written c/o Tudd Rundren:

Signs, signs, everywhere theres signs
breakin' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
do this don't do that, can't you read the signs?


Like, wow, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa a
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaan.
That's heavy...

Fuckin' Todd Rundren is like, too much of a fuckin' rebel to follow the signs
n' shit. He like sees a DEAD END sign and like totally drives his Ford Festiva
that way anyway! He don't care, man, he'll drive right into a wall! He's a fuckin' rebel!

This might be out of order, but that's how it goes in my head:

Danny went home and killed himself last night...she'd taken everything, she'd taken everything

she took his cash
she took his checks
she took the soda pop
there was nothing left

and what she couldn't take she found a way to break
she left his amplifier.

Todd Rundgren didn't write "Signs"; Les Emmerson of Five Man Electrical Band did. You know, the band that recorded the song.

As I was walking I saw a sign there
And on one side it said, "No Trespassing"
But on the other side it said nothing
And that side was made for you and me

Gonna find my baby, gonna hold her tight
Gonna grab some afternoon delight
My motto's always been 'when it's right, it's right'
Why wait until the middle of a cold dark night?

When everything's a little clearer in the light of day
And we know the night is always gonna be there any way

Thinkin' of you's workin' up my appetite
Looking forward to a little afternoon delight
Rubbin' sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite
And the thought of lovin' you is getting so exciting

Sky rockets in flight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight
Afternoon delight

(and yes, I had the whole thing in my head thanks to the great 4 part harmony of Mr. Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 news team.)

I think it's like... just try to think of a song lyric. And whatever the first one is that comes into your mind, type it. I think that's the idea. It's supposed to be spontaneous, sort of like a word association thing.

Well, there's a Continental Trailways leaving
Local bus tonight, good evening
You can have my seat, I'm sticking 'round here for a while
Get me a room at the Squire
And the filling station's hiring
And I can eat here every night
What the hell have I got to lose?

Got a crazy sensation
Go or stay, I gotta choose -
I'll accept your invitation to the blues.

- Tom Waits


This was the first Tom Waits song I ever heard and it floored me. Turned me into a fan immediately.

A slightly more optimistic take on the same theme is:

And the seasons they go round and round
And the painted ponies go up and down
We're captive on the carousel of time
We can't return we can only look behind
From where we came
And go round and round and round
In the circle game

Your song reminded me of that.
