big time

Peter Gabriel...always has amazing videos. And amazing songs. And amazing lyrics.

I'm on my way,
I'm making it
I've got to make it show, yeah
so much larger than life
I'm going to watch it growing

The place where I come from is a small town
they think so small
they use small words-but not me
I'm smarter than that
I worked it out
I've been stretching my mouth
to let those big words come right out
I've had enough, I'm getting out
to the city, the big big city
I'll be a big noise with all the big boys
there's so much stuff I will own
and I will pray to a big god
as I kneel in the big church


big time
I'm on my way-I'm making it
big time big time
I've got to make it show yeah
big time big time
so much larger than life
big time
I'm going to watch it growing
big time


my parties all have big names
and I greet them with the widest smile
tell them how my life is one big adventure
and always they're amazed
when I show them round my house, to my bed
I had it made like a mountain range
with a snow-white pillow for my big fat head
and my heaven will be a big heaven
and I will walk through the front door


big time
I'm on my way-I'm making it
big time big time
I've got to make it show-yeah
big time big time
so much larger than life
I'm going to watch it growing
big time big time
my car is getting bigger
big time
my house is getting bigger
big time
my eyes are getting bigger
big timeand my mouth
big time
my belly is getting bigger
big time
and my bank account
big time
look at my circumstance
big time
and the bulge in my big big big big big big big...

well, finally an explanation for the detentions i keep being slapped with...
i'm simply so arousing to all my teachers that they keep punishing me for "being late" and "insisting upon wearing concert tees to p.e. instead of regulation ones". can you believe i actually got a bad conduct mark for that?
i'm choosing to believe that it's my own fault for being such a sexy two-bit hooker.

Peter Gabriel... I like his song 'I Grieve' (OK, I'm not quite sure of the title but its on the 'City of Angels' soundtrack).

Yep... In Your Eyes reminds me of one of my favorite movies of all time... "Say Anything." Call me old, but it was the shizz back then. I loved when he played the song and held his beat box above his head. Classic...

Peter's videos were trippy to say the least...
