"Plenty of Paper" as written by and Sherri/dupree Dupree....
Something's growing under that wing
I think a face is dawning
Oh no, the bugs are growing faces
And you're lost quite classically with your nose in a book
And it seems so fitting

And perhaps this is the end we've sought after for so long
And perhaps now it's done

'Cause we found all entire dreams of men and machines
And turned them all around
Our identical hands composing our commands

I cut the moon in half and stuck a piece to my hair
And made the back of my head glow
Golden yellow and then I took ten stars on sticks
And placed them in my small meadow

But again I gave the other half of the moon to you, oh
So you would unforget me while I'm gone

'Cause we found all entire dreams of men and machines
And turned them all around
To enjoy them and benefit ourselves
Our paperback books, our charming looks
Our identical hands, composing our commands

And oh my love we could live on the sun
And wouldn't we be attractive
Riding in our shiny motorcars
With eyeglasses full of stars
And plenty of paper for scenery paintings

'Cause we found all entire dreams of men and machines
And turned them all around
To enjoy them and benefit ourselves
Our paperback books, our charming looks
Our identical hands, composing our commands

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song by this crew.

    Their lyrics are so hard to pin down. They have an ethereal quality of having many possible meanings, or no meaning at all. I feel that with many Eisley songs, there is a duality wherein each verse/line can be interpreted individually but the song as a whole has a meaning as well.

    As far as this song is concerned, it makes me picture some sort of futuristic cyberpunk/fantasy setting, as strange as that is. There's definitely a message about technology here, but there are also references to fantastical magical events.

    General CommentThis song makes me want to go out on a cold, grey evening with a red feather boa and spin and dance around and kiss someone.

    If anyone had a similar effect, do tell. :)

    General CommentI'm not sure about the boa part, but it does make me want to go frolick in the street at night with some perfect lover.

    General CommentWhenever I hear this song I think about a couple just sitting down and drawing together. I know that sounds wierd, but I remember on one website that said one of the singers Sherri loves to draw. And this song reminds me of just that, drawing nothing yet loving it and enjoying what you love with someone you love.

    General CommentI love this song! It really makes me want to dance. I've never considered putting on a boa, but Americanmusic's suggestion sounds pretty neat.

    It's all about creativity and fun, with books or drawing with a friend.
