 Where she puts her food in
 They call it THE MOUTH

I said, 'Honey, I don't feel so good, don't feel justified
 Come on put a little love here in my void,' he said
 'It's all in your head,' and I said, 'So's everything'
 But he didn't get it I thought he was a man
 But he was just a little boy

There were six men in Birmingham
 In Guildford there's four
 That were picked up and tortured
 And framed by the law
 And the filth got promotion
 But they're still doing time
 For being Irish in the wrong place
 And at the wrong time

 That's this world over
 Or so it seems
 That's this world over
 The end of dreams
 
 That's this world over, over, over and out.

I hate the countryside so much
 I hate the countryfolk so much
 
 The Fall - Contraflow
 
 just discovered the second line is actually
 
 I hate the contraflow so much
 
 but even the place I found the lyrics say it sounds like Mark E. says country folk, I am betting that was the intent

there's my favorite rollercoaster
 next to the blue water
 the one only sissies ride
 there's the sun
 going down
 creating that florescent glow
 reminding me i'll never be able
 to relive this day
 except in memory
 
 there's those big barking fish
 in the concrete stream
 growling for dog food
 bulging dead eyes that gleam
 but where's dad
 and where is mom
 looks like from here on out
 it's just me and you
 looks like from here on out
 it's just me and you

But when you said that I wasn't worth talking to
 I had to take your word on that
 But if you'd known
 How that would sound to me
 You would have taken it back
 And boxed it up and buried it in the ground
 Boxed it up and buried it in the ground
 Boxed it up and buried it in the ground
 Burned it up and thrown it away
 
 - Liz Phair, "The Divorce Song"
 
 One of my favorite lyrics of all time....I adore the idea of words as a tangible thing you can bury and/or burn up.  If only.
 
 I also love the Billy Bragg line -- good call, ggw.

I walked into the house of miraculous recovery
 And stood before king everything
 And he asked me to join him in the red wing
 Took me to pie land
 Said, I??m a thigh man
 I will be eternally hateful

It's OK.

If I ever do karaoke, this Robbie Fulks song will be the song. Too difficult to choose just a line or two.
 
 Well, I came down to Nashville in 1993
 'Cause my friend Jim said Nashville had money growin' right on the trees
 So I thought I'd go pick some, and I don't mean musically.
 
 Now it's 4 years later, and I'm wonderin' where I went wrong
 Shook a lotta hands, ate a lotta lunch, wrote a lotta dumbass songs
 But I couldn't get a break in Nashville, if I tried my whole life long
 
 So, fuck this town...fuck this town
 Fuck it end-to-end, fuck it up and down
 Can't get noticed -- can't get found -- can't get a cut, so
 Fuck this town.
 
 Hey, this ain't country-western!
 It's just soft-rock feminist crap!
 And I thought they'd struck bottom back back in the days of Ronnie Milsap
 Now they can't stop the flood of assholes: there ain't a big enough ASCAP.
 
 Sure, I like old Tim Carroll, and BR5-49
 But Nashville don't need that noise, no,
 Nashville'll do just fine
 As long as there's a moron market
 And a faggot in a hat to sign.
 
 Fuck this town! Fuck this town!
 Fuck...this...town.

Demon is up in the attic to the left
 My eye turns to the left to say, "no"
 You said, "First, I am the special one."
 I never hammered my mind out
 I never have the bloody hammer [x3]
 I never have the bloody [x2]
 I never have the bloody hammer
