It got me thinking what lyrics I’d get put on my arm: “A man in a crisis falls back on what he knows best. A murderer to murderer, a thief to theft.” By the Cowboy Junkies, and a bit long, really. “Memories are just dead men making trouble.” The Junkies, quoting a poet (EM Forster, maybe?). Sounds tough, but not quite me. “I started out on burgundy, but soon the harder stuff.” From Bob Dylan. Too bad I don’t drink. “We sit here stranded, though we’re all doing our best to deny it.” Again Dylan, again too long. “I’m the first mammal to make plans.” Pearl Jam. It’s got a certain pithiness. “Just take what you need and leave the rest.” From The Band. A nice sentiment, but a bit obvious. “Shakespeare, you’re a drunken savage.” I like the absurdity of it, and the fact that it’s by the nation’s favourite rock band, the Hip. That’s the closest I’ve gotten to something I might, in some parallel universe, tattoo on my arm. What song lyric would you tattoo on your arm? TALVEZ, SE EM INGLÊS, 'YOU GROW ME LIKE AN EVERGREEN, YOU'VE NEVER SEEN THE LONELY ME AT ALL'; OU 'EACH MAN HAS A WAY TO BETRAY THE REVOLUTION. THIS IS MINE'; OU 'EVEN DAMNATION IS POISONED WITH RAINBOWS'; OU 'YES YOU, WHOM I CANNOT BETRAY'; OU 'OH WEEPING WILLOW COUGHING UP MY HEART"; OU "Cut out the poetry/Let's hit the main artery"; OU "You've just now gone, as I arrive/At every station"; OU: "DEAR HEATHER, PLEASE WALK WITH ME AGAIN"; OU: 'LET US BE TWO SEVERE GIANTS, NOT LESS LOENLY FOR OU PARTNERSHIP"; OU: ' I am dirty as a glass roof in a train station';
ou: 'I LIKE TO FEEL THIS INCOMPLETE'...
