becca darling has left us. (a remembrance.): the lyrics
« on: October 27, 2012, 05:37:45 PM »


as per my blog, here are becca's full ridiculous lyrics to sex changes and girl anachronism.



girl anastronautism
(from "a is for astronaut")



321 blast off !



you can tell

from the stars in the sky

and the cracks in my spaceship

and the dents in my helmet

and the moonshoes that i'm wearing

that i'm not the carefullest of astronauts



you can tell

from the rockets on the floor

and the engines that are breaking

and they keep on breaking more

and my hyperdrive is broken !

but it's just the temperature

and then again

if it were any colder i would disembark

if i were any older i would lose my sparkplug



i don't think that you'd believe me

it's not the way i'm meant to be

it's just the way the exploration made me



and you can tell

from the state of my moon

that they let me go too soon

and the freeze-dried food i ate

came a few light-years too late

and i've got some planets to go to

there i go again

pretending to be nasa

make-believing

that there are craters on the surface

trying to convince you

it was atmospherically on purpose



i am lacking oxygen

this breathing is a plagiarism

i might join your galaxy

but only on a rare occasion

i was ordered out before the mission could begin

behold the void's worst accident

i am the girl anastronautism



and you can tell

by the light in my eyes

and the comets in the skies

and the aliens in the fields

and the rear deflector shields

that i'm not on earth at all

there i go again

pretending that i'll fall

don't call the home base

they've seen it all before

they'll say

just let her crash and burn she'll learn

the oxygen just encourages her



and you can tell

from the full-body spacesuit

and the matching spacey mittens

that you did everything you could

like any decent martian would

and i might be floating but don't touch

i'll start believing i'm immune to gravity and such

don't bring me down

because i'm not done with my mission yet



and you can tell

from the smoke on the screen

that the current state is critical

but it is the space station on mercury

in the time it takes to blast off she can eat all her provisions

please excuse her for the day, it's just the way the orbitation makes her



i don't necessarily believe that i have helmet hair

so i might join your galaxy but only at a supercuts

i was in the twilight zone removed as a caesarian

behold the void's worst accident

I AM THE GIRL ANASTRONAUTISM




fruit changes



dear mr and or mrs shopper

pleased to inform you that your vegetables have been rejected

starting from the time you get this letter

your life will be one never-ending cycle spitting pits out

you'll get your choice of supermarkets

you'll need to peel the skin off (tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock)

it might not be so very juicy

there is no money back once you have sunk your teeth into it



today's a very healthy day

the doctors recommend it but what will the grocers say ?

your stomach's feeling pretty hollow

it might be red and pulpy

don't forget you're eating a tomato (a tomato, a tomato)



you'd better go to bread & circus

the fruit will start to ripen in a week or so

so don't go saying your banana's getting spotty

you'll get more than you're asking for if you don't buy organic



today's a very healthy day

and how you'd love to eat a little peach or tangerine

but citrus always gives you heartburn

today be still your acid reflux

take your tums and eat a nice tomato (a tomato, a tomato.)



fruit will be fruit will be fruit will be fruit will be fruit will be fruit will eat fruit with no

warning

veggies are bad, and they will make you sad, or perhaps even mad, so go eat all your fruit, or you'll die by the morning

ohh, they always said that fruit would change you, fruit would change you, fruit would change you, fruit would change you



no second thoughts, lunch time is nearing

you'll never hear the little tempting call of the zucchini

when it screams in chorus with the broccoli

of course I love you but you know it's just the fruit that matters

but I think my vitamin C is fading

it seems to me the food pyramid is quite misleading

don't you know you need more than 5 servings ?

the doctors say that once you get a taste for it you'll keep on eating



but while we happen to be here

why don't you whisper the nutrition facts into my ear ?

you know I'm trying to be healthy -

hurry up and peel me a grape !

you know I like them better than tomatoes (and tomatoes and tomatoes.)



they always said that fruit would change you…

When i heard of the sad news, i thought i knew her, but i couldn't recall if she was a musician, or an actress, or a SBoxer.

But i never thought she would be Melissa Mahoney :'(

It's so heartbreaking. I don't know what to say but i too hope there's music and fun wherever she is now.

facebook is like the worst book I've ever read. the characters do not evolve one bit and the plot is going nowhere.

I had been going back and looking at all the videos and music that came out after "No, Virginia" and I loved Oasis, it's a good song.  This news breaks my heart, It's hard when your friends die.  :'(

Brilliant. We should print these out and sing them at the shows when you come home to Boston.
