  2. My favorite song of all time! "Take It Easy" - The Eagles

    "Well, I'm running down the road
    Tryin' to loosen my load
    I've got seven women on my mind,
    Four that wanna own me,
    Two that wanna stone me,
    One says she's a friend of mine,
    Take it easy, take it easy
    Don't let the sound of your own wheels
    Drive you crazy"

    "Prometheus the problem child still juggling with his brains,
    Gives his limping leapord visions to the miser in his veins,
    Within the ruined factory the normal so insane,
    As he sets the sky beneath his heel and learns away the pain"

    "Oh, who can see in the eyes of fate?
    All life alone in its chronic patterns.
    Oh, swan, let me fly you
    To the land of no winds blowing.
    I know nothing, and know that I know nothing;
    All is in the eye, and in its blinks of seeing."

    All by Robin Williamson of The Incredible String Band
  4. 'happy birthday to you
    happy birthday to you
    happy birthday dear __________
    happy birthday to you'

    or the alphabet
  5. I like the part where they say "Happy birthday"
  6. The Incredible String Band are awesome. I have to go dig out my Hangman's Daughter pressing now.

    God Only Knows is the most memorable for me.

  8. The sun is the same in a relative way but youre older
    Shorter of breath
    one day closer to death

    And in the end the love you take
    is equal to the love you make
  9. I love pink Floyd
  10. and when the brokenhearted people living in the world agree, there will be an answer, let it be.

    So, so you think you can tell, heaven from hell? Blue skies from pain?
  11. "advertising signs, they con
    you into thinking, you're the one
    that can do what's never been done,
    meantime life outside goes on all around you."
