Shark Week 03:26
As everyone with cable knows The discovery Channel has one of the best shows It's full of guts and gore and comes around once every year Like a Santa Claus that inspired my deep-sea fears... But for females it holds another meaning Guys shudder at the mention of it in polite company Just imagine the behemoths of the ocean Fighting to the death for domination... Inside your vagina Oh, it really sucks being a girl sometimes When your hormones have gone apeshit and your friends all think you've lost your mind When you hate and love your best friend in one night (And then you rip 'em a new one) And you wake up the next morning and wonder why You went batshit crazy Strangers should not inspire poetry It's just your damn fucked-up biology Like a chorus of dying cats in heat! Except different I guess, because the last thing you want is sex So I think I'll post a sign onto my rear 'Tread careful all ye who enter here' There's sharks in the shallows and blood on the water (Sorry, that was gross...) Cuz it's Shark Week again! Shark Week again Once a month I eat all my friends Shark Week again Don't get between me and my chick flicks I haven't cried since yesterday and I need my fix Sitting in a dark room, a box of tissues and Sixth Sense I lose it every time we find out Bruce Willis is dead! So if you ever see a girl is stressing Never ask the dreaded question 'Are you PMSing?' It won't matter if you're right or wrong If you want to save your life, just remember this song; It's Shark Week again! Shark Week again Chocolate is my best friend Shark Week again Oh yes it's Shark Week again! Shark Week again A Falcon Punch to the ovaries that never ends Shark Week again Oh yes it's Shaaaaark Weeeek Agaaaaaaain!
Counted up the death toll this New Years Found that I was short a soul or two Looking around, there was blood on the ground And the vacant eyes showed not a trace of fear I rode o'er the valleys and crossed the oceans wide Searching for the one that got away But when I saw it was you, well my heart burst in two Didn't think that this would be your day Oh, whatcha been doing? Oh, to the folks back home I hope that you know now That neither me or God will ever leave you alone Don't call me a hopeless romantic Don't think that I am anyone to judge It's just that I believe in better days Although it's true that death can conquer love I am the one that ferries souls to heaven It's not a job for the weak at heart But I'll carry on long after you are gone And the loneliness will tear me apart (CHORUS) I'm doing my time until my time comes I'm doing my time till it comes I'm doing my time till I see that light I'm doing my time till it comes Yes, I'm doing my time until my time comes I'm doing my time till it comes I'm doing my time till I cross the line I'm doing my time till it comes... (CHORUS)
The gulls and the crows are in the midst of a turf war It's a screaming song of sadness that I've heard somewhere before Didn't you say the same thing while we waited for the train? Well we saw the lightning, we chased the black storm Followed it down the tracks till the early morning Electricity bleeding with the dawn Seagulls never get lost on their way to the sea So if you're not a seagull don't worry Just get lost with me Picking out the feathers from your hair one by one You're flustered and you're honest and that's attractive to some I don't see you as a burden, your wing is broken just like mine Tanning on the rooftop, ship-shape, sails drop Roaring over this lonely ocean and we can't stop Lost Boys don't give a shit about unhappy thoughts (CHORUS) (BREAK) Lost Boys don't give a shit about unhappy thoughts Lost Boys don't give a shit about unhappy thoughts Lost Boys don't give a shit about unhappy thoughts Lost Boys don't give a shit about it These air currents are sublime, though we've had our rough times As long as you're happy I'll have my peace of mind I wouldn't want this leviathan city to catch you in its jaws If the winds blow us apart for miles We can still kill pirates with our crocodile smiles Let's stay lost...for a while

Dogwood Seattle, Washington

Hailing from the hedge and loam of Seattle's undergrowth, this chimerical songbird aims to weave historical and wax hysterical in the old-new traditions of mountain men, shantymen, and her fellow men as she tromps and twirls acro'st both ancient myth and accidental malady. This little troubadour delights in bringing life to the voices of the past, so come and share a pomegranate seed or two! ... more
