HARVEY DANGER - Flagpole Sitta

I had visions, I was in them;
I was looking into the mirror.
To see a little bit clearer
The rottenness and evil in me.

Fingertips have memories
Mine can't forget the curves of your body
And when I feel a bit naughty
I run it up the flagpole and see who salutes
(but no one ever does)

I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot 'cause I'm in Hell.

Been around the world and found
That only stupid people are breeding
The cretins cloning and feeding
And I don't even own a TV.

Put me in the hospital for nerves
And then they had to commit me
You told them all I was crazy
They cut off my legs, now I'm an amputee, God damn you

I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot 'cause I'm in hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live so well

I wanna publish 'zines
And rage against machines
I wanna pierce my tongue
It doesn't hurt, it feels fine
The trivial sublime
I'd like to turn off time
And kill my mind
You kill my mind, mind

Paranoia, paranoia
Everybody's coming to get me
Just say you never met me
I'm running underground with the moles (digging holes)
Hear the voices in my head
I swear to God it sounds like they're snoring;
But if you're bored, then you're boring.
The agony and the irony: they're killing me (whoa).

I'm not sick but I'm not well
And I'm so hot 'cause I'm in Hell
I'm not sick but I'm not well
And it's a sin to live this well
(one, two, three, four)

*Whispers*

That song was written by Mac Davis. Elvis was the singer who just recorded it.
Just saying...


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
I tend to recall smaller parts of songs, short passages that can mean so much on their own....

"I've got enough guilt to start my own religion" - Tori Amos, Crucify

"Of all the love that we've had and the love that we hide, who will bury us when we die..." - Pet Shop Boys, Opportunities Remix

"They wonder what, that I have got, that they have not" - Pet Shop Boys, Bet She's Not Your Girlfriend

"It's a long way down from the sidewalk to the gutter" - KingSwamp, Floating World

"Scars are souvenirs we never lose" - Goo Goo Dolls, Name

"Some believe in destiny, and some believe in fate
I believe that happiness is something we create
You best believe that I'm not gonna wait
'Cause there's gotta be something more" -Sugarland, Something More

I was a way better sinner when I was a Christian.

RE: Favorite Song Lyrics
Pretty much any lyric written by Eddie Vedder or Chris Cornell speaks to me. Particularly, though, I love:

The selfish, they're all standing in line
Faithing and hoping to buy themselves time
Me, I figure as each breath goes by
I only own my mind

North is to south what the clock is to time
There's east and there's west and there's everywhere life
I know I was born and I know that I'll die
The in between is mine
I am mine
-I Am Mine - Pearl Jam

Well I know you're reaching out
And you need to feel my hand
You want to be understood, yeah well I understand
I know you hold precious little hope for me
And in your hapiness
I'm always drowning in my grief
And I only love you when I'm down
And I'm only near you when I'm gone
But one thing for you to keep in mind, you know
I'm down all the time
-When I'm Down - Chris Cornell

Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.
