If life were a thing that money could buy, the rich would live and the poor would die.

Do You Realize - that everyone you know
Someday will die -

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes - let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It's hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn't go down
It's just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

or

Mutilated lips give a kiss on the wrist
of the worm like tips of tentacles expanding in my mind
I'm fine, accepting only fresh brine
you can get another drop of this, yeah, you wish

Hadn't planned on listening to Flood this morning, but now I have no choice.

Someone keeps moving my chair...

You're probably wondering why I'm here
And so am I, so am I

Just as much as you marvel
About me being in this place
That's just how much I marvel
At the lameness on your face

You rise each day the same old way
And join your friends out on the street
Spray your hair and think you're neat
I think your life is incomplete
But that's probably not for me to say
They only pay me here to play....

The path of least resistance leads to the garbage heap of despair.

so make a little birdhouse in your soul
and build a nest in the house
and lay an egg in the nest
and sit quietly on your egg
in the nest in the house
and quit waking everyone up
at 6 am.

Not bad, sno, but I don't think there's any improving on the original.

My story's infinite
Like the Longines Symphonette, it doesn't rest

Promised land the land of plenty rich in gold
Here came dreamers with Bible fist and gun
Bound for land across the plains their wagons rolled
Hell bent for leather that's how the West was won

And from what I used to consider my theme song:

I like songs about drifters - books about the same.
They both seem to make me feel a little less insane.
Walked on off to another spot.
I still haven't gotten anywhere that I want.

It was Saturday last week
We was hanging out in Johnson Creek
We was partying in my van
When we got hassled by the man

Jamming the Foghat on my 8-track
With a case of Malt Liquor and a bong in back
When out of nowhere came the man in blue
I thought we was busted but the pig was cool...

Oh birdie who sings like a rusty pump,
Won't you show yourself so I can see you?

Birdie, birdie on the wall
Ain't you got no sense at all?
Don't you know the wall's been plastered?
Get off the wall, you dirty birdie.
