Damn you towelboy!
runstaverun and I were just having a conversation, and a fucking line from a fucking Peter Gabriel song came up, and fucking I was able to figure out what song it came from and pull it up in seconds and it wasn't even a fucking recent album, fucking towelboy infecting me with his fucking Peter Gabriel knowledge!

This time, you've gone too far! Fucking gnomes crawling up stairwells and crazy hobbits prodding people and going through doors and a flower!

Feeling: disappointed disappointed
Listening to: Peter Gabriel, Slowburn

A flower?

I love it when people tell me that they hear a Phil Collins or Peter Gabriel song and they instantly think of me.

So, I noticed you were listening to 'Slowburn.' Is that where the lyric in question came from? Great song, from the first PG solo album in '76. I've got that song live and a special 40 second extended version.

Slowburn

We're character actors from the Tower of Babel
Bewildered, burned out hardly able
To sit astride the high wire cable
It's hard to balance, a little unstable.

Through broken eyes and contact lenses
(I) Watched you draw your future tenses
See kisses of flame blow out of your lips
You're back telling me your Apocalypse.

Don't get me wrong, I'll be strong
When the slowburn sunset come along
You've gotta stay the night
I gotta think that you might.

We've tried a handful of bills and a handful of pills
We've tried making movies from a volume of stills
(But) the words fell like hailstones,
Bouncing at our feet,
Covering our feelings with a frozen sheet.

A chance to move, I take a shot
I get cold - you get hot
We look outside, lyin' awake
See birds breaking surface on a silent lake.

But don't get me wrong, I'll be strong
When I'm back on the Isle of Avalon
Dont get me wrong, I'll be strong
When the slow burn sunset come along
You've got to stay the night
I've got to think that you might.

Don't try (to) make it easy, it'll cut you down to size
Darlin' we've got to trust in something
We're shooting down our skies
Shooting down (shooting down) our skies
(shooting down our... )
