I got tired of messing with this stupid thing. Maybe too thick to become flightworthy even with ideas....:facepalm:

 

Female vocal

 

Pencils And Paper

 

V1

No need to worry 'bout tomorrow morning

That old sunrise may not ever come

Fallout spill from anger words are born in

Blocks the sun

 

V2

Looking through old pages in my diary

Then there was no doubt where I belonged

Trusting lies as truth without inquiring

I was wrong

 

CHORUS 1

Pencils and paper, those weapons

Of mass destruction

Letters once posted and opened

No way to close them

 

V3

Measuring the moments here without him

Looking for a treasure that's been spent

Breathing toxic fumes that made my world dim

(And) Locked me in

 

Pencils and paper, those weapons

Of mass destruction

Letters once posted and opened

No way to close them

 

BRIDGE

Tongues filled with venom..given to criticizing

Rage and resentment make sorries too paralyzing

Maybe with some kinder words to say

Furious explosions will abate

Just not today...he's far away

 

Pencils and paper, those weapons

Of mass destruction

Letters once posted and opened

No way to close them

 

Repeat to fade

Since I haven't been a frequent music radio listener since ABBA was topping the charts, I'm not always on top of lyrical cliches.

 

So, let me see, idol...if I simply lose the premise for the entire song, I'll be in good shape...'zat about it? ;) Are there scads of songs about WMDs? :confused:

 

Seriously, you have given me an idea, though I'm worried about some of the images that are SUPPOSED to be emblematic of WMDs becoming puzzlements (not that they aren't already).

 

New Chorus?

 

Pencils and paper, CREATORS

Of MY destruction

Letters once posted and opened

No way to close them

 

Huh, what say?

 

Thanks, mon amis!

Rats, my interpretation skills continue to need improvement. English was never my best subject. Math on the other hand.....:thu:
