i took my shirt off in the yard
no one saw that the skin on my shoulders was golden
now it's not
my shirt's back on
i forgot my songs
the glow is gone
my gliding body stopped

i could not get through september without a battle
i faced death
i went in with my arms swinging
but i heard my own breath
i had to face that i'm still living

i'm still flesh
i hold on to life with feelings

i'm not dead
there's no end
my face is red
my blood flows harshly

my heart beats loudly

my chest still draws breath
i hold it
i'm buoyant

Best musical sequel ever.
You're just jealous! Nobody loves you because you're tiny and made of meat!

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn
Ocean storm, bayberry moon.
I have got to leave to find my way.
Watch the road and memorize
This life that pass before my eyes.
Nothing is going my way.

R.E.M. - "Find the River"

I cried the other night
I can't even say why
Fluorescent flat caffeine lights
Its furious balancing

I'm the screen, the blinding light
I'm the screen, I work at night

I see today with a newsprint fray
My night is colored headache grey
Don't wake me with so much.
The ocean machine is set to nine
I'll squeeze into heaven and valentine
My bed is pulling me,
Gravity
Daysleeper.

R.E.M. - "Daysleeper"

Everybody here
Comes from somewhere
that they would just as soon forget
A disguise
At the summer camp where you volunteered
No one saw your face, no one saw your fear
if that apparition had just appeared
Took you up and away
from this base and sheer
Humiliation
Of your teenage station
Nobody cares
no one remembers
and nobody cares

R.E.M - "Supernatural Superserious"
(Stipe is my favorite musical poet)

someday I'll be stuffed in some museum
scaring litte kids
with the inscripture "carpe diem"
something I never did

The best part of La Grange
Is that I'm never going back

                   — Grafton, "The Best Part of La Grange"
I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Coyness is nice, and
Coyness can stop you
From saying all the things in
Life you'd like to

So, if there's something you'd like to try
If there's something you'd like to try
Ask me I wont say no, how could I?

Spending warm Summer days indoors
Writing frightening verse
To a buck-toothed girl in Luxembourg...

She said, "My sails are flapping in the wind."
I said, “Can I use that in a song?”
She said, “I mean the end begins.”
I said, “I know. Can I use that too?”

Cross my heart and hope to die
Stick a needle in my arm
Praise the heavens, Call the cops
Relax, there's no cause for alarm
Diamond rings and little babies
Startlements and miracles
I remember pretty faces
So severe and lyrical

"Blood of a Young Wolf" - Buck 65

(I'm always wondering if anyone else likes this song. My boyfriend and I were completely addicted to it for a few months.)
"I've been very lonely in my isolated tower of indecipherable speech."

More of the beloved entertainer:

The failed Don Juan in the big bow-tie
Is very sorry that he spoke
For he's mislaid his punchline
More than halfway through a very tasteless joke
The fraulein caught him peeking down her gown
He's yelling in her ear
And all at once the music stopped
As he was intimately bellowing "My dear . . ."

"This is Hell"- Elvis Costello
