Oh man, I am HUNGRY. I mean, I did have a couple of slices of French bread this morning, but still.

So, for Expos, we get to write about a song (or poem) that we feel relates to our life. I chose The Living End's "Growing Up (Falling Down)", and he says I need another (the song repeats too much). So I've narrowed it down to three songs (lyrics all copy/pasted from plyrics.com, hence terrible punctuation and grammar):

Motto
Have you ever felt that something,
you know that something that keeps you sane?
and you can't explain why
But you know it's what's left inside you
and I know that it's that something
you know that something that keeps me sane
and I can't explain why when it's all I have I have left to hold onto
And when I say It's everything
from my highest hopes to my dumbest schemes
you'll never know what it means to me.
I'm just a reason away, from that something that keeps me sane.

History of a Boring Town
Just talked to this girl,
used to live, yea, on my street. (woah-oh-oh)
After all these years you're here,
and you remember me. (woah-oh-oh)
She said her old boyfriend
packed up and headed back east.
But she always knew some day...
he would go.

She just got a new job
and she's down to her last. (woah-oh-oh)
So let's take a drink and never think, yea
here's to the past. (woah-oh-oh)
She said its so funny,
how life runs out so fast.
It's just another wasted day.

A boring life in a boring town
with the same old crowd. (woah-oh-oh)
When I used to say, that I'd never say
that I'm rotting here today. (woah-oh-oh)
With that same old crowd
thats always been around.
And I always thought I'd be
the first to go.

That same old crowd,
that drags me down.
Another day in a boring town.
That same old crowd,
that brings me down.
A boring life in a boring town.

Just talked to this girl,
used to live, yea, on my street.
After all these years you're here,
and its still just you and me.
Sometimes I can't belive after all these years
I just think I'll never leave here.
She said it's so funny,
how life runs out so fast.
Let's take another drink,
and here's to the past.

That same old crowd,
that drags me down.
Another day in a boring town.
That same old crowd,
that brings me down.
A boring life in a boring town.

And remember when they looked through you,
and then looked past me.
We were the ones they said would always leave.
So when you go, just think of me,
think of me. (woah-oh-oh)

Big Crash
Sometimes, I think somethings
wrong with me because,
I was never one,
to believe in anyone or anything.
Its always been just me.
Its always been just.

And you know, they've always had,
always had big plans for you.
Just to walk you through
and cloud your views. Woah-oh-ho.
And I'll never say,
Everythings OK.
Don't wanna say that
you're giving up right now.
Just hold your ground,
and don't give up,
in what you believe.

Big plans.
Big crash.
Don't be different,
when you can't be yourself.

Big plans.
Big crash.
Don't be different,
when you can't be yourself.

Sometimes, I think somethings
wrong with me because,
I was never one,
to believe in anyone or anything.
I can't say I'll ever change.
Won't say I'll ever change.

And you know, they've always had,
always had big plans for you.
Just to walk you through
and cloud your views. Woah-oh-ho-oh-ho-oh.
And I'll never say,
Everythings OK.
Don't wanna say that
you're giving up right now.
Just hold your ground,
and don't give up,
in what you believe.

Big plans.
Big crash.
Don't be different,
when you can't be yourself.
