I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte (colubra) wrote,
I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

I can name that tune in five syllables, Pete.

Some other people are doing this thing (I horked it from peverel who snagged it off karjack), and I found it interesting, so I'm doing this thing too.

Onward! -->

So here's the deal. I stick up lyrics to 15 songs, you name the artist and song.

Why is it so
That I've always been the one who must go
That I've always been the one told to flee
When it fact you were the one long ago
Actually in the drifting white snow
You left me

Please excuse me from gym
I’ve got this terrible cold coming on
He grabs and devours
He kicks me in the showers
Kicks me in the showers
And he grabs and devours

She’s got green eyes and she’s lovely
Reminds me of the ’It’ Girl with her lips
Got an automatic license
Reads all Dostoyevsky’s household tips

He says uh oh I love you
But I’m not sure I trust you
You seem strange to me

She told me she loves me
which means she must be insane

Oh the heavy water how it enfolds
The salt the spray the gorgeous undertow
Always, always, always the sea
Brilliantine mortality

For in truth, it's the beginning of an end
And nothing has changed
Everything has changed

In your fear
Of what we have become
Take to the fire
Now we must burn
All that we are
Rise together
Through these clouds
As on wings

I look at you and see
my life as might have been
your face just ghostly in the smoke-
they're setting fire to the cornfields
as you're taking me home

the smell of burning fields
will now mean you and here

Pitter patter of the eyelid on the first roll of the dice
feel the atmosphere, it's gently laced with nicotine and spice
it's a long walk home, the entrance of the night is scary
only trouble is, he never learned to shoot the same gun twice

Where are the masks that prepared us for winter?
Where are the fields where we moved from the center?
The last course of moon revolves by a question
It's timeless, rewarded by lesser suggestion

Grow past a fortune, it forges your sign
tools we would use for bringing back time
saying it would bleed into visions of gold
legs sturdy, skin like his, eyes never closed
the eyes never closed
we missed a fortune

you call it over and i call you psycho
significant other?
just say we were lovers and we'll call it even
we'll call it even

i am the ground zero ex-friend you ordered
disgused as a hero to get past your borders
i know when i'm wanted i'll leave when you ask me to
mind my own business and speak when i'm spoken to

i am the tower around which you orbited
i am not proud i am just taking orders
i fall to the groud within moments of impact
i hit back if hit
and attack if attacked

but her sense of taste is such
that she'll distinguish with her tongue
the subtleties a spectrograph would miss
and announce her decision
while demanding her reward
the jellyfish kiss

don't you know I tried and tried again to make you listen to me
but every thing I said it always tried to go right through ya
I turned myself into a person that I didn't like
but please believe me when I say I know it wasn't right
I never thought that things would ever get so complicated
I never thought that you and me would end up so frustrated
you'd think that something had to come from all those good intentions
but in the end I needed something more than intervention

Ou est mon maitre le prince rebelle
Qui va fermer tout de ces fenetres
Ce sont ces fenetres autour de moi
Ce sont ces fenetres qui m'appellent,
Qui m'appellent

Now what else can go wrong for you
It's a choice between a cab fare home
And a packet of cigarettes
So you choose and the money sticks
In the machine and the manager says
'Tough shit - drink up and leave'

She pulls your eyes out with a face like a magnet
I don't know how much more of this I can take
she's filing her nails while they're dragging the lake
