Almost Any Line of This New Pornographers Song Would Make a Great Blog Post Title, Volume 1

January 11, 2008 § 1 Comment

The particularly good lines are initial capped for later ease in cutting and pasting.

All the Old Showstoppers
When John he saw the numbers he lied
Made up the whole thing,
Failed when he tried
To Cash In On This Cautious New Fame
Always the Numbers But Never the Name

We hit the numbers we broke
broken and changed them
Changed As We Spoke
We Knew That We Would Always Be Down
Hitting the Numbers Spun Way ‘Round

And somebody beside you
Slipped Your Head Inside the Crown
The Princes of the Paupers
And All the Old Showstoppers
Till This Moment’s Still Unknown

Sirens’ Songs Have Tried, Too
Yet, She Takes You As Her Own
The Princes of the Paupers
And All the Old Showstoppers
Till This Moment’s Still Unknown

And when he got the numbers he thought
Thought of his friends who slowed to a halt
Who had questioned to no avail
Some Knew the Answers, Some Wouldn’t Tell

When Gabriel saw the numbers he fell
Fell Through the Clouds Into the Great Well
But woke up before he hit the ground
No One Had Noticed still he looked around

With her hand to guide you
You Are Nothing if Not Home
The Princes of the Paupers
And All the Old Showstoppers
Till This Moment’s Still Unknown

    The first volume of many … there’s an outside chance one could use every line in the title track and Go Places, also. Oh Canadians, is there nothing you won’t do to entertain us?
