He thought about his lost daughter: the way her eyes would alight at the

greedy circus barker's blackmail song; how he wanted to smash her skull

when she parroted back, 'tell mommy; tell poppy; you need this little

Shoot to Disable - Kim Wilde

Mirrored in your face

Is a look that says it all

Boy Im slow

Ive been uncertain

Just couldnt be sure

Now I know

You say its over

But just how long have you known

(you better go now)

But as you leave me

Shoot to disable

Shoot to disable

Maybe I got careless

Maybe its true I ran too fast

But on recollection it didnt do much

So I pass

Youre such a hard man

Why cant you take steady aim

(just get it over with)

Dont fool around now

Shoot to disable

Shoot to disable

Oh what a fool I was to love

Word Up : cripple

Good morning, it's 3am in this great roaring

city full of garbage eaters ravaging parking

spots beneath my plaza window I see cheetah in their

tight skins and tired heels all-night hippo in

the diner crossing the street swarthy heards of young

impala flambastic gibbon even a struggling monza

and over there that brilliant head ornament on that

Japanese macaque but look closely at the hammerhead hand

in hand with the mandrill, it's a sight you're

unlikely to see anywhere else on the planet...

"Billie" by Pavement

Billie and my friend the saint,

You're perfect in so many ways,

But you never looked hard

at a fetus in a jar

you never saw your mama change.

And this wonderland of spite,

Does not shine into your night,

Like widows are seen

As stigmatised beings,

Who ought to have second chance.

And hurricanes spin

Like debutantes in a trance.

Sue the fortune-teller,

Rue the rising tide,

General Washington,

patented that skull,

Throw him out.

Ship that hollandaise,

Feel the heart fell of touché

See the longer you tease,

The stronger the needs,

The highs and the fruit are long.

Up to the one a kid,

Call the bluff when the money's in,

You're a hungry matron,

And you are just what I need,

I was tired of the best years of my life.

Sue the fortune-teller,

Rue the rising tide,

General Washington,

Patented that skull,

Throw him out.

Word Up: "solitude"

"In the arms of an angel

Fly away from here

From this dark cold hotel room

And the endlessness that you fear

You are pulled from the wreckage

Of your silent reverie

You're in the arms of the angel

May you find some comfort there"

"Angel" - Sarah McLachlan

Geometry and history is just a pain,

Biology and chemistry destroys my brain.

Well don’t they know that I deserve a better fate?

I’m really much too young to matriculate

Radiate me, subjugate me, incubate me, recreate me, demarcate me, educate me, punctuate me, evaluate me, conjugate me, impregnate me, designate me, humiliate me, segregate me, opiate me, calibrate me, replicate me
