A couple of couplets:

Jumped in the river and what did I see
Black-eyed angel swimming with me

AND

Sing us a song,
A song to keep us warm

Or maybe just: "Rats and children folow me out of town..."

I'll laugh until my head comes off

We got heads on sticks
You got ventriloquists
Rats and children follow me out of town

They're the ones who'll spit at you,
You will be the one screaming out

When I go forwards you go backwards and somewhere we will meet

Cracked eggs, dead birds
Scream as they fight for life
I can feel death, can see its beady eyes

You're so fucking special

thats all for now

I'm having trouble sticking to just one-liners:

we are the DOLLARS & CENTS
and the PoUNDS and Pence
the MARK and the YEN
We are going to crack your little souls
We are going to crack your little souls

I'm living in cloud cookoo land

While you make pretty speeches,
I'm being cut to shreds.

In an interstellar burst
I'm back to save the universe

Come on kids

I float down the Liffey

The big fish eat the little ones
Not my problem, give me some

Take the money and run

Don't talk politics and don't throw stones
Your royal highnesses

Catch the mouse
Squash his head
Put him in the pot




------------------
We plants are happy plants.

until now I always thought it was 'this world makes you look pretty ugly' which isn't too bad a line either to me

one day I am going to grow wings, a chemical reaction, hysterical & useless

(the idea of "one day I'll grow wings" is pretty trite, which is why it's so fabulous when it's turned around to be not this expected emotional leap but a "chemical reaction," in fact biological and nearly inevitable, like a disease or experiment, not emotional at all, but then that's turned on its head again by this all being hysterical & useless, useless especially undercuts the whole thing -- the biggest of all human dreams, to grow wings and fly away, or be an angel perhaps, and it turns out to be utterly pointless)

U2zed, that so describes Kid A and the whole idea of human cloning. Great post.

We are grateful for our iron lung

I don't care if it hurts, I want to have control

immerse your soul in love

The big fish eat the little ones, not my problem give me some

Dear sir, I have complaint, can't remember what it is

Open up, begin again

The Head of State has called for me by name
But I don't have time for him

When I am king you will be first against the wall, with your opinion which is of no consequence at all

------------------
"Shame on you! Ugly baby judges you!"
