Plucking the String

Date: November 1, 2005
Genre: indier than thou!

It's a thank you.  It really is.  And you know who you all are, and that's all that matters.


I could never live on my knees
I find my feet can carry me

I see all those empty eyes
Yet it's me that they despise

How can they live with themselves
When nothing is strange or true?
What good does "normal" do?

I suppose I could stay
Quiet for a while
What use would it be to smile?

It strikes me kinda strange
To think they can't rearrange

At times I feel alone
My rhythm gets kinda thrown

But I just can't live on my knees
Gotta live this life as I please

I've lost a lot along the way
But I've gained some, too
Not so far away
