I asked my favorite adult human for help choosing today's VT.  He came through:

Undone

Last stop on the West Coast line
South of the northern border,
One small corner -- home tonight

Everybody, they know me there
Don't get any second glances
Chances are that they don't care

The world has come undone
Like to change it everyday
Change don't come at once
There's a wave building before it breaks

Can't wait for election day
Witness the occupation:
Corporations rule the day

Well, you know the pendulum throws
Farther out to the one side swinging
Has to sweep back the other way

The world has come undone
Another day and who can wait?
Change don't come at once
It's a wave building before it breaks

All this hope and nowhere to go;
This is how I used to feel -- but no more!

The world has come undone
Like a game, if you can play
Change don't come from one:
It's a wave building before it breaks

Keep pushing the pendulum, dear friends.  Don't lose hope in hope.  The wave hasn't broken yet -- but I've got my surfboard ready.

Back next week!

  1. Witness the occupation:

    I always hear this "rue the day".  And I have time to think, "Why wouldn't the corporations be pleased with that arrangement?" before I correct it in my head.  I guess "rue the day" should have ... some sort of auxiliary verb for futurity precede it (?) -- then it would work?

    OK, yes, re-treading old ground.

  2. some sort of auxiliary verb for futurity precede it

    Ha!  I can't frakking believe I missed a "Josh, it makes much more sense to live in the present tense" joke the first time 'round.

  3. My music collection is 2 for 2 on songs called Undone.

    Mine too, but if that's not true for anyone else reading, don't sweater it.
