Am I out of my depth?
Uninterrupted multiplicity, this is where you lose me
Come again, if you please?
Aluminium lunar luminous is taking over us
Am I missing the point?
This reeling speel, forgive me if I'm wrong
But are you making this up as you go along?
And it bores me to tears
Get a handle on the dialogue
It's a one man show
It's a monologue

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I can't figure it out
This cascading fountain of nothingness, you're a mess
I simply cannot believe
You met a mighty metamorphous, that's ridiculous
I am somewhat confused
Selected, collected from the gene pool
They can keep you youthful?
Well, excusez-moi, Monsieur Cosmique, je suis protoplasmique, qu'est-ce que see'est?

How can I spell it out for you
I am no ordinary fool
And even though there's nothing left to say
You go ahead and say it anyway

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

I could be slow I don't know
You just went over my head
I don't understand a word you just said

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

Plastic Bag
Ed Sheeran
“Plastic Bag” is a song about searching for an escape from personal problems and hoping to find it in the lively atmosphere of a Saturday night party. Ed Sheeran tells the story of his friend and the myriad of troubles he is going through. Unable to find any solutions, this friend seeks a last resort in a party and the vanity that comes with it. “I overthink and have trouble sleepin’ / All purpose gone and don’t have a reason / And there’s no doctor to stop this bleedin’ / So I left home and jumped in the deep end,” Ed Sheeran sings in verse one. He continues by adding that this person is feeling the weight of having disappointed his father and doesn’t have any friends to rely on in this difficult moment. In the second verse, Ed sings about the role of grief in his friend’s plight and his dwindling faith in prayer. “Saturday night is givin’ me a reason to rely on the strobe lights / The lifeline of a promise in a shot glass, and I’ll take that / If you’re givin’ out love from a plastic bag,” Ed sings on the chorus, as his friend turns to new vices in hopes of feeling better.
