Strings (lyrics)

Strings

You hang dangling in a cloud

Trying to live your life out loud.

You don’t think

That you can stand

Without your strings

In the hand of someone

With a little money

***

(chorus)

Dangling

Wrapped up and strangling

A life you’re mangling

Thinking you’re real

(…and free free free).

***

You’ve got two feet all your own

Yet you’re afraid to stand alone

Surrounded by a wall of fear

It’s hard to stare

Into a mirror

And see that

You are someone.

***

(chorus)

Dangling

Wrapped up and strangling

A life you’re mangling

Thinking you’re real

(…and free free free).

***

You use strings and they use you

They strangle everything you do

I wish that you with all your grace

Would stand and meet me

Face to face

Without a single string attached.

***

(chorus)

Dangling

Wrapped up and strangling

A life you’re mangling

Thinking you’re real

(…and free free free).

Playing With Irony

The serious dust-up  over leaked documents being published by independent journalists has inspired me to make a little picture.  It characterizes all freelance journalists as one being “Lance Journalism” who is reminiscent of an old character of mine named “Lance Poster” who commented on message boards and was accused of fomenting discourse and launched a campaign to “Free Lance Poster”.   After all, published reality is such a refreshing change, isn’t it?
