Most of these are poems not songs, with a couple of exceptions.

Default lyrics that I'll never use

my straw
was broken
by a camel's back

your jaw
hit the floor
and it stayed so slack

if it's broken then it's broken
and I think i'll take this token
of the words that went unspoken
and exchange it for the moments
that i'll never get to have with you

no I'm not
laughing at you

there's nothing
else left to do

these thoughts crept into my mind
(I just can't shake them)
sometimes I dream that you lied
(I just can't take them)
but I wake at every sunrise
(I just can't shake them)

and it's the same

A line I came up with once that I've always wanted to fit into a song but have never been able to is:

She was an old and floppy-breasted whore.

alright. but I think my band might actually use these now, and i'll finally succeed in turning us into a posi-core band. because there aren't enough of those already.
