What is one of your favorite quotes from a song lyric?

Do you have any favorite lines from a song? Here’s one that I really like; from Ani DiFranco’s “Little Plastic Castle”


They say goldfish have no memory

I guess their lives are much like mine

And the little plastic castle

Is a surprise every time


Being able to look at the world in a new abstract way is a quality I love to possess. So yes, I’m like a goldfish who is always in awe of the world around my goldfish bowl home. 🙂

I’m a music fiend and have so many lyrics from which to choose … but for the purpose of this exercise I’m throwin it old school with MC 900 Ft Jesus’ “If I Only Had a Brain” Suppose I accidentally got my shit together Would I get a medal Or a pat on the back and a little feather I could stick in my cap or pin it to my shirt Go out in the yard and poke it in the dirt Or leave it in the woods where it couldn’t be found If it fell over, would it make a sound? And if it did, would it be the sound that you like? Or should I do it over until I get it right?
