Hi-fi Friday… In which I Let Meat Loaf Do The Talking….

Meat-Loaf-2011

It’s been a rough week or so on so many levels I don’t even know where to start… so I’m gonna hand this off to my dude, Meat Loaf, who knows how to say it just right…

~ Life Is A Lemon (And I Want My Money Back) ~

And the corresponding lyrics….

It’s all or nothing

And nothing’s all I ever get

Ev’ry time I turn it on, I burn it up and burn it out

It’s always something

There’s always something going wrong

That’s the only guarantee, that’s what this is all about

It’s a never ending attack

Ev’rything’s a lie and that’s a fact

Life is a lemon and I want my money back

And all the morons

And all the stooges with their coins

They’re the ones who make the rules, it’s not a game it’s just a rout

There’s desperation

There’s desperation in the air

It leaves a stain on all your clothes and no detergent gets it out

And we’re always slipping through the cracks

Then the movie’s over, fade to black

Life is a lemon and I want my money back

I want my money back

I want my money back

What about love?

It’s defective! It’s always breaking in half

What about sex?

It’s defective! It’s never built to really last

What about your family?

It’s defective! All the batteries are shot

What about your friends?

It’s defective! All the parts are out of stock

What about hope?

It’s defective! It’s corroded and decayed

What about faith?

It’s defective! It’s tattered and it’s frayed

What about you gods?

They’re defective! They forgot the warranty

What about your town?

It’s defective! It’s a dead-end street to me

What about your school?

It’s defective! It’s a pack of useless lies

What about your work?

It’s defective! It’s a crock and then you die

What about your childhood?

It’s defective! It’s dead and buried in the past

What about your future?

It’s defective! And you can shove it up your ass

Oh, I want my money back

I want my money back

It’s all or nothing

And nothing’s all I ever get

Ev’ry time I turn it on, I burn it up and burn it out

It’s a never ending attack

Ev’rything’s a lie and that’s a fact

Life is a lemon and I want my money back

And we’re always slipping through the cracks

Then the movie’s over, fade to black

Life is a lemon and I want my money back

I want my money back

I want my money back

    In my present state of mind, this song about covers it. Trying to find myself in the chaos.
