twenty eight

tell me are you single yet
my heart's as big as texas
it'd take more than just a lingual threat
to get this pest to let live
at best he'll need a sedative
and strap him to a steady bed
at worst it's he's already dead
the first time folks have heard this
a song of these: the bone dry jokes
from the grown kid's spokesmen's notebooks
lil pone go slow and hollow
like an empty rowboat looks
left to float alone it follows
where any air goes, it's took

    General CommentThere are 28 beats with his lyrics.

    Coincidence?

    I think not.

    General Commentthe first two lines pretty much sum this up. sounds like he's still hung up on a girl who doesn't want to get into a relationship with him and he's too in love to let go. explains that his "heart's as big as texas" - i.e. how genuine his feelings are and how much he feels he can offer - and that it'll take a lot for him to give up on those feelings. until then, he'll carry on with life as usual, alone, getting by, but feeling empty and unfulfilled without her. thematically serves as a nice introduction to Simeon's Dilemma which kind of seems along the same lines.

    My InterpretationIt struck me a little while ago that 28 would typically be one's age when attending a high school reunion. Perhaps this is about some girl he's been after since high school and this is his first time seeing her in a long time.
