"Crawling Can Be Beautiful" as written by and Seth Jabour Harrison Haynes....
I was a member of a successful society.
There was a successful someone inside of me
But then it turned around
And inside out and upside down.
They trapped an wrapped and packed
Me shifty out of town.

Crawling can be beautiful
It sure beats standing still
Crawling on your hands and knees
Takes self-control and skill.

Can we declare, though scared,
This room to be a sovereign state
Where citizens share skins
And sins and copulate.
'cause if we can I think we should
And shouldn't waste a breath.
A baby place is faced
With settling on baby steps.
People party here with me.
Cause the party people's party
Puts the fear in me.
Let loose here with me.
Cause suits suit suits
But the noose suits thee.

Crawling can be beautiful
It sure beats standing still
Crawling on your hands and knees
Can be a show of will.

Who here finds this world distracting?
Who here finds this world a bore?
Who here thinks we're all play acting
And that the show's piss poor?
I for one am dazzled,
I don't care if dazzled blind,
Rapt, enraptured, captured
By every little thing I find.

    General CommentRight on -- Stunning Song, probably my favorite of their's too. It couldn't reflect my outlook on life any better. I've heard this song singled out as an example of Harrington's "nonsense," which seems astonishingly dim-witted. I wouldn't know where to begin explaining it -- it explains itself so perfectly. I'll come back to this soon...

    General CommentDoesn't it say successful twice before "someone inside of me" and "ship me, shift me out of town" makes slightly more sense than "shifty."
    "where ALL the citizens share skins" also is wrong.

    General Commentit actually sounds more like.... ' there was a sus-successful someone insa-side of me, and i do believe although 'shift me' makes more sense, it still sounds like shifty?

    General CommentI was a member of a su-succescful society.
    there was a su-succesfull someone insa-side of me
    but then it turned around
    and inside out
    and upside down.
    they trapped an wrapped and packed me, shipped me, shifty out of town.

    crawling can be beautiful
    it sure beats standing still
    crawling on your hands and knees
    takes self-control and skill.

    can we declare, though scared,
    this room to be a sovereign state?
    where all the citizens share skins,
    and sins and copulate:
    'cause if we can I think we should
    and shouldn't waste our breath.
    a baby place is faced
    with settling on baby steps.

    People party people party, party here with me.
    cause the party people's party
    puts the fear in me.
    let loose, let loose, let loose, here with me.
    cause suits suit suits
    but the noose suits thee.

    crawling can be beautiful
    it sure beats standing still
    crawling on your hands and knees
    can be a show of will.
