I took a bit of a Thanksgiving/Birthday break from MP3-OF-THE-WEEK (OK you got me, I forgot to update this), but I have a fun treat for y'all now.
This is a live performance of a weird fun song I wrote called "Diagonal Crossing." It's about crossing the street diagonally (duh) and how you feel like a total bad ass doing it.
Here are the lyrics.
Never mind the traffic laws
I don't buy them at all
I'm on top and everything is pushing to get out
People think that I'm insane
They're just way too tame
Spitting on the face of death with every single step
Old lady waiting for the walk signal grimaces in the sun
Her diagonal days are over
But mine have just begun!
Up and down and left and right
Cross the street, hope to die
Agony to me is walking 90 degrees
I'm pretty happy with the dia-agony pun there.
This performance is from a live party I played in 2004. This was a damn fun show with a lot of short songs and energy and no mic.
Here it is!
