About
I love to write lyrics! Words are always going through my head, and I love to make clever stories with them. I'm a huge fan of They Might Be Giants and I have a lot of depressing lyrics that I would like to pair with some upbeat music. But, I can also write about fun things as well and pretty much any topic for me can become a clever interesting story.

Lyrics

All the Joy birds criticize, the glare and spite that fill my eyes
 A constant haunting silhouette, sits patiently within the net
 The backwards path that follows me, cannot fulfill, it cannot see
 I'm just the way it has to be, I guess I'm super HAPPY

Providing protection from the disinfection preventing recollection 
Cancels out the racket while confined to my blue-lined jacket

 Big thick padding containing softer matting stops my frown from gladding
