Re: Inspired by January 1979




January, 1979.
Saw a terrible crash and i couldn’t help but laugh,
As my ear pressed against the past like a glass
on a wall of a house in a photograph.
My forehead no longer sweet with holy kisses worthy of your fiery lips.
I was floating in a peaceful sea 'rescued' by a sinking ship.

If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.
If I could become the servant of all, no lower place to fall.

You watch me like a ten car highway wreck with detached, vulgar curiosity.
This looking down at the tops of the hats
of us passers-by from your 7th floor balcony.
From such a height you missed creatures too small for sight
carry on covert conversations.
And the misguided insects crown me their grasshopper king
with a dance of celebration.

After years with a crown on my head, I've grown overfed,
unconcerned and comfortably numb.
Kept busy indulging in the pleasures of the wealthy.
(Someone make me afraid of what I’ve become!)
At the first sign of possible sorrow, I turned my heels and ran.
(Oh, I’ll never learn.)
My life is a cup of sugar I’ve borrowed before time begain and forgot to return.

It was a matter of time--I always said I could see so now I’m going blind.
It was a matter of time--I always said I could see so now I’m going blind.
It was a matter of time--I always said I could see so now I’m going blind.
It was a matter of miserable time-- but I heard somewhere there was a cure for useless eyes?

Nice design. I like that the eyelashes still manage to leave the gender ambiguous. I recently saw mewithoutYou at a Thrice show; great band, quite bizarre.

Not only my favorite design I have yet to see on a shirt from this site. But probably my favorite shirt I've seen from anywhere. Plus I love mewithoutyou, so that helps...
I really hopes this wins, Nice job man!
