A Rush and a Push and The Land is Ours

Oh hello
I am the ghost of Troubled Joe
Hung by his pretty white neck
Some eighteen months ago
I travelled to a mystical time zone
And I missed my bed
And I soon came home

They said :
"There's too much caffeine
In your bloodstream
And a lack of real spice
In your life"


I said :
"Leave me alone
Because I'm alright, dad
Surprised to still
Be on my own..."


Oh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the strain of the pain again
A rush and a push and the land that
We stand on is ours
It has been before
So it shall be again
And people who are uglier than you and I
They take what they need, and just leave


Oh, but don't mention love
I'd hate the pain of the strain all over again
A rush and a push and the land that
We stand on is ours
It has been before
So why can't it be now ?
And people who are weaker than you or I
They take what they want from life


Oh, but don't mention love
No - no, don't mention love !
A rush and a push and the land that
We stand on is ours
Your youth may be gone
But you're still a young man
So phone me, phone me, phone me
So phone me, phone me, phone me


Oh, I think I'm in love
Oh, I think I'm in love
Oh, I think I'm in love (think I'm in love)
Urrgh, I think I'm in lerv
Oh ...

I like The Smiths. My favorite is "How Soon is It Now." Do you love me?

Anonymous, I must correct you. It's How Soon is Now. Relinquish your rights to speak about liking the Smiths--you've been revoked.

I love this song. Especially the way Moz grunts between the words "A" and "Rush."


I was AWP. Where were you? I hung out with Eduardo!

I'm offended! That wasn't anonymous. It was Tupac_Da_Dogg.

Dogs don't have feelings,especially ones that rap.

Tony,

Yeah. Bummer. I had drinks with E but was running around with different people. Probably why we didn't meet up. Next time, I guess, unless you'll be in NYC or LA soon?

Love the controversy that goes on at your blog...
