desertions: (Impossible Girl)
You know, I got to bed at midnight tonight. I was so happy to fall asleep early for the first time in -weeks-.

But then someone turned off the air conditioning and I woke up hot and sweaty and omg awake at about four and haven't been able to go back to sleep since then.

Bastards.

Now I'm awake and thoughtful, but I'll just leave you with some song lyrics before attempting to get back to sleep again.

Oh, what a noble, distinguished collection
of fine little friends you have made
Hitting the tables without you again,
"No we'll wait, no we promise we'll wait."

Well, June makes these excellent sewing machines
out of common industrial waste
She spends a few months at a time on the couch
but she's safe, she wears shades, she wears shades

Oh, but no one can stare at the wall as good as you,
my baby doll,
And you're aces for coming along,
you're almost human, after all

And you're learning that just because they call themselves friends
doesn't mean they'll call

They made the comment in jest,
"But you've got the needle,
I guess that's the point of it all."

Maybe a week in the tropics would help
to remind you how nice life can be
We propped you right up in a chair on a deck
with a beautiful view of the sea
But a couple weeks later we came back
and you and the chair were nowhere to be seen
You had magically moved to the closet
eyes fixed to where the child had been


Oh, but no one can stare at the wall as good as you,
my baby doll,
And you're aces for coming along,
you're almost human, after all
Why would I keep you propped here
when you so love the fall

Patterns laid out on the bed
with dozens of colors of thread
But you've got the needle,
I guess that's the point in the end.

Well, it's better to waste a day
watching the scenery change at a comatose rate
Than to put yourself in it

and turn into one of those cigarette ads that you hate
But while you were sleeping, some men came around
said they had some dimensions to take
I'm not sure what they were talking about
but they sure made a mess of your face

But still no one can stare at the wall as good as you,
my baby doll,
And you're aces for playing along,
you're almost human, even now
And just 'cause they call themselves experts,
it doesn't mean "suite fuck all"
They've got the permanent press
and homes with a stable address
And they've got excitement
and life by the fistful
But you've got the needle
I guess that's the point of it all.


The song? Point of It All by Amanda Palmer (Lead singer of the Dresden Dolls), I'm really digging her solo CD alot, though I think this is my favorite. It's hard chosing just one though. It really is an amazing CD.

IT'S NOT A UNICORN. IT'S A HORSE WITH A SWORD ON IT'S HEAD. IT'S THERE TO PROTECT MY HOPES AND DREAMS
