A broken record has a thousand answers to countless contradictions.
Your condition is running through the streets again.
Now you’ve drained your thoughts onto an empty page
with ink as red as blood
Some words were never meant to be like I was talking to myself
I drew a picture to remind me of what you look like when it’s raining.

Use a lot of heavy words that never get you anywhere.
The circle vent is cycling (?)
Another year has lived an died of blue tangled phone lines…
Of frequency that’s frightening.
First dial to hear a stranger’s voice crying.

And now you’ve drained your thoughts onto an empty page with
ink as red as blood.
Some words were never meant to be
like I was talking to myself

Figure 8 - Crying your silver plates
Icy eyes - Have you seen the midnight skies?
Wipe the sleet from your rusting eyes.
Fill this room with superstitious smile a chorus of all lies
Wipe the sleet from your rusting eyes.
I want you to see me for the first time.

Your blaring jagged lips
I’m dying to taste your icy eyes
You’re your blaring jagged lips
I’m dying to taste icy eyes
Figure 8 - I wished I was better than your skates
Icy eyes; can you see through my disguise?
Figure 8 - Same old sour twist of fate
Jagged lips your blaring icy eyes

    General CommentThought this song was called "Joyce Carol is a Boring old Biddy"? which is odd seeing as "Where are you going where have you been?" is one of her books.

    General CommentThe circle vent is cycling (?) = The circumfile needs cycling

    That's one of my favorite lines ever. What brilliant use of language.
