It doesn’t mean that much to me, to mean that much to you. 

Neil Young

 

 

If you don’t stand up, you don’t stand a chance. 

Genesis

 

 

 

Had a buddy in college who made his dorm room available for anything you wanted to write on his wall. He painted over it at the end of the year, but I had those two up there.

In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey. 
Butane in my veins so I'm out to cut the junkie.
With the plastic eyeballs, spray paint the vegetables. 
Dog food stalls with the beefcake pantyhose.

My favorite line from that song is:

 

And my time is a piece of wax

Falling on a termite.

Who's choking on the splinters.

You raise the blade, you make the change
You re-arrange me 'til I'm sane
You lock the door
And throw away the key
There's someone in my head but it's not me

I look straight in the mirror, I watch it come clearer
I look like a painter, behind all the grease
But paintings creating, and I'm just erasing
A crystal-clear canvas is my masterpiece

To any god or government
Always hopeful, yet discontent
He knows changes aren't permanent
But change is." - Neil Peart

"First to fall over when the atmosphere is less than perfect
Your sensibilities are shaken by the slightest defect
You live you life like a canary in a coalmine
You get so dizzy even walking in a straight line
You say you want to spend the winter in Firenza
You're so afraid to catch a dose of influenza
You live your life like a canary in a coalmine..."

 

~Canary in a Coalmine, The Police 

 

"...Hide my face in my hands, shame wells in my throat
My comfortable existence is reduced
To a shallow, meaningless party
Seems that when some innocents die
All we can offer them is a page in a some magazine
Too many cam'ras and not enough food
Cause this is what we've seen
Driven to tears..."

 

~"Driven to Tears," The Police

Are lines and paragraphs now the same thing?   :)

 

I kid, all that’s good is good. I was just trying to stick to a single line.

I don't  know when to stop.  So I encompass the whole thought.  It's  probably  too much.

I guess... multiple  good lines  in one

stanza.

I used to think it was "I like smokin' lighting - and a little thunder"

I think mine's better.
