Kickin’ down the road
Feelin’ mighty slowed
With the likes of you
Gettin’ mighty spaced
Never had a taste
Of what you’re goin’ through
I can’t bitch
Went from rags to riches
Then to ragtime screamin’ the blues
I want to know why
Everybody’s good intention
Try to make a fool out of me
I want to know why
Everybody’s good intention
Gotta make a fool
Gotta make a fool
Try to make a fool out of me
Swing low
Sweet cherry o
When a strange love showed me the way
Ya see more
Can’t keep a score
When the whore’s comin’ on for the play
E. Poe
Eatin’ crow
Wonder if he knowed that the raven was mad
Time passed
And words lost the last
Of the best thing he ever had
Oh play rough
Can’t get enough
So they try to make a fool out of me, lordy
Ain’t foolin’ me
Ya ain’t ghoulin’ me
Ain’t foolin’ me
Ya ain’t ghoulin’ me

I am an avid Mac-user, nerd, musician, freelancer, and gamer. Ask me about my collection of M:TG cards! I've also got a horrible habit of needing the absolute newest technological wonder, whether it's stable or not. If they made a home-version of the LHC, I'd have 2. Additionally, I've been playing music for the better part of 14 years. I'm self-taught on piano, guitar, trumpet, trombone, sax, clarinet, bass, drums and other percussion, and around 10 other instruments. I also spend quite a bit of time dabbling in synthesizers, sequencers, and samplers. I'm also founder of Quotelicious where I collect and share the quotes I love.
