Green


My friend words here say no more
Tattered nothings in the policemans sorting hat
Court hearing cries didn't pick out 'coeliac'
UFO beamed the TV (it's only a commercial)

Oh betelgeux and aldebaran
Bulbs flicked off with a broken light switch
Treehugger Teresa must have thought she's so rich
My syllables mean a-nothing in a vast black universe

Chorus:
Pointless and confusing
Someone told me so
The guitar makes a noise
The words don't make a sound
So I'm off to Weelsby Woods
He instead suggested Teresa
Get me a chainsaw
To chop this ****ing tree

CD player saw the radio get pelted with fruit
Stuck down by gum to the ground of Aberdeen
Sulphuric eyes sterylised so they can't be seen
Tore the party needed to quieten their lies

Shirt wearing black and white with equal measures
There's flaring ashes hasn't been half an hour yet
Reached the end of the duration before he said 'get set'
A skull rode a clock handle shot before it could run

I feel like the underlined lyrics are a little...clumsy. Such as

I can't piece together who Teresa is or what this has to do with the forest.

Also, I'm still confused how you went from stars and the universe to a forest.

Overall, thouhg, veryy well written. A+. (Other than my spelling)

That's the point, that it's meant to be nonsensical. I was in a band and we were picking who would be the lyricist. I was hoping it would be me, but instead picked someone else in the band ("Teresa"), because he couldn't make out what my lyrics meant and basically thought they were shit ("Pointless and confusing", "The words don't make a sound"). The irony is this time I deliberately made them confusing.

I was (and still am) envious of people who can just write brilliant lyrics that relate to people in such a great way. You could even say "Green" with envy.

Have you ever heard the joke "Teresa Green"? I thought, well I'll make this person a treehugger so I can get my own back by cutting down a tree... lol
