Starless

Does this song make anyone else cry?

I've re-discovered pop-up video, and apparently, this tune was originally supposed to be about a relationship with an abusive woman.

I think it would have been my favorite song.

(of course would it have gotten any airplay and blah blah blah I would've never heard it but still)

I need a good Shiner lyrics site while I'm in a lyrical mood. I have been puzzling over this song for months.
It's quickly becoming my favorite, or at least, tieing with Semper Fi, which is one of the greatest songs ever recorded, all opinion aside.

"That's the novelty of this debate
That's the irony of this debate
That's the fly that's been left in my cake"


...

I can't hear my phone
And I'm sure he's been trying to call
There's a twist in this
something I know (?)
something i can't hear at ALLL cause the fucking lawnmower outside...
wtf? No one even has a yard around here... the homes that aren't high-rises or condos with nothing but parking lot are house built to the property line because space is so expensive.

My mom called. She made it to California, safe and sound! Thanks to everyone concerned.

Everyone's Said it Better (A Poem in Three Acts)

Straining like a plaid chameleon
Spinning like a planet headed for aphelion
I never know just when I'll be coming back
Maybe this time the rubber band will snap

An electric socket poked with a fork
I feel the universe's deadly torque
(Peter Tork Peter Tork)
And the Swedish chef goes "børk børk børk"

A grip more tenuous than any combover
I'm allergic to my four-leaf clover
I gotta rash from handling cash
And Pisa's about to fall over

Do you ever feel like one of those drinking birds?
Except you keep sticking your head into a mound of turds
(wide-eyed cow pied)
You open your mouth at a loss for words

You went to see Winger cause you thought they said Wings
And everything's just one of those Seinfeld things
Aim for the farthest star and swing over the bar
Except you're too big for the swings

Why do I stay when there's nothing left
Except maybe a kick to the gluteal cleft
(Leeza Gibbons sliced to ribbons)
My escape is anything but deft
