hm.... what about this one:

"time is running out
let there be no doubt
we should sort things out
if we care
like we say we do
not just empty words
for a week or two


make the world
your priority
try to live your life
ecologically
play a part
in a greater scheme
try to live the dream
on a wider scene

let's come together
right now
oh yeah
in sweet harmony"

'When the moment strikes,
It takes you by surprise and leaves you naked in the face of death and life,
There's no righteousness in your darkest moment,
We're all equal in the face of what we're most afraid of' from Sympathy by Sleater-Kinney

These are the days to hold onto because we can't although we'll want to.

Worst line ever is the next one down:
You've given me the best of you,
And now I need the rest of you.

Which just sounds like cannibalism to me.

Creepy for sure, but I still love Billy so much.

I could quote this entire album, it is pure poetry.

"So let's be married here today these rushing waves to bare our witness,
And we will lye like river stones rolling only where it takes us."

Through everything I've ever been through before
Heads up, somethings really happening

I want to sing one for the cars
that are right now headed silent down the highway
and it's dark and there is nobody driving
and something has got to give.

I saw you waiting by the roadside.
You didn't know that I was watching.
Now you know.

Let it all go. Let 'em all go.

Let it all go.

Love, the kind you clean up with a mop and bucket
Like the lost catacombs of Egypt, only God knows where we stuck it
Hieroglyphics? Let me be Pacific, I want to be down in your South Seas
But I got this notion that the motion of your ocean, means "small craft advisory"
So if I capsize in your thighs, high tide, be -5, you sunk my battle ship
Please turn me on, I'm Mr. Coffee with an automatic drip
So show me yours I'll show you mine "Tool Time", you'll Lovett just like Lyle
And then we'll do it doggie style so we can both watch X-Files

...I am not prepared, I just gotta gotta get there,
where am I, why can't I just get it together?
fork it, where's my shiitake?
Oh my God I'm mad at it
Oh my God I'm mad at it

Seriously consider getting this tattooed at some point. It pretty much sums up my daily state of being.

"I spoke to you in cautious tones
You answered me with no pretense
And still I feel I said too much
My silence is my self defense

And every time I've held a rose
It seems I only felt the thorns
And so it goes, and so it goes
And so will you soon, I suppose

But if my silence made you leave
Then that would be my worst mistake
So I will share this room with you
And you can have this heart to break

And this is why my eyes are closed
It's just as well for all I've seen
And so it goes, and so it goes
And you're the only one who knows."
