Oh No, Vertigo!

Postby vowlvom » Wed Jul 05, 2017 11:10 am

I'm on a plane at the sound of your name
And the pilot’s announcing the weather in Spain
looks crisp and warm with a hint of a breeze
I think of your voice and go weak at the knees

But then I look down at the ants on the ground
They look like people I know
Oh no, vertigo!

I'm high in the air with one flick of your hair
Riding the wind without any care
Never had myself pegged as a flyer
But your love is a thermal sending me higher

But then I look down and I lust for the ground
My place is below
Oh no, vertigo!

I hear you speak and I’m lost in thought
everything’s moving although I am not
the world is spinning, even though
I do not suffer from vertigo

oh no
vertigo?

Pigfarmer Jr - Oh No, Vertigo!

When you're walking the tightrope
Take the dare, but don't look down
Seems like they all want you to fall
Life is full of taking risks
Prove them wrong, don't hit the ground
You can try if you've got the balls

Oh no, Vertigo!
Oh no, Vertigo!

Don't be scared, you can handle this
Take a step and you're on your way
No-one here can tell you what to do
Own your life, you can take control
You know you have the final say
What do you really have to lose?

Oh no, Vertigo!
Oh no, Vertigo!

Lust. Greed. And Gluttony
Sloth. Wrath. Pride and Envy.

Come on, boy, don't you lose your nerve
Reach on out and grab the fruit
Take from the world what you are owed
Temptation is a life of sin
And my promise is misconstrued
Take the gift that I have bestowed

Oh no, Vertigo!
Oh no, Vertigo!
Oh no, Vertigo!

Oh, No Vertigo! by mister Johnny Cashpoint

It really rather bothers me whenever some new someone
Dismisses fear of heights as phobia, a daft aversion.
Heard that far too many times, from strangers and from loved ones
Truth is High Anxiety marks you as a smart person!

Oh no, vertigo is not a psychological problem - the
Dictionary says phobias are fears that are irrational.
Vertigo’s not fear of heights but fear of falling from them
To one’s death on ground below – eminently sensible.

Hardly groundless not to want to plummet to the ground -then
All that’s left of you's a pancake! Doesn’t take a boffin
To see there’s nothing logical ‘bout boarding aeroplanes,
Get catapulted through the sky in giant metal coffin!

Oh no, vertigo is not a psychological problem - the
Dictionary says phobias are fears that are irrational.
Vertigo’s not fear of heights but fear of falling from them
To one’s death so far below – eminently sensible.

To hear the ill-informed folk talk, our denial’s just pathetic -
One bout of hypnotherapy, we’d all be piloting helicopters!
My father suffered just the same, I guess that it’s genetic.
I think it’s really you not me who ought to see a doctor.
Lester Bangs is still dead.

Berkeley Social Scene:

It knocks you down
Takes the wind from your sails
Once tall and proud
You only can fail

The falling you feel isn't real
The shifting and reeling will heal
Disorientation takes hold
You have to be brave to be bold
The falling you feel isn't real
The shifting and reeling will heal

You won’t hit the ground
Like Alice you fall
The ride doesn’t end
You can’t stand up

The falling you feel isn't real
The shifting and reeling will heal
Disorientation takes hold
You have to be brave to be bold
The falling you feel isn't real
The shifting and reeling will heal

It's beautiful
chemical
Tragic yet delicate
But it weighs you down

The falling you feel isn't real
The shifting and reeling will heal
Disorientation takes hold
You have to be brave to be bold

The falling you feel isn't real
The shifting and reeling will heal
Disorientation takes hold
You have to be brave to be bold

The falling you feel isn't real
The falling you feel isn't real

She knocks me out
Takes my breath away
I’m feeling dizzy now
In the sweetest way

Oh No Vertigo
Oh No Vertigo

She turned my world around
I can’t stand straight
I’m spinning upside down
Is this my fate

Oh No Vertigo
Oh No Vertigo

As the ground gives way
I fall into her gaze
I never want to leave there
I know it sounds cliche
I hope she always stays
Keeping me uneven

Oh No Vertigo
Oh No Vertigo

Oh No Vertigo
Oh No Vertigo
Oh No Vertigo
Oh No Vertigo

Oh No, Vertigo!
by WreckdoM

It's soft outside,
Everything's creamy
Everything's dreamy
Time to ride the shine
It's puft out here
The moist is clear
The ghost wind chears
The river runs beer
Oh No! Am I contused?
Oh No! Am I confused?
Oh No! Am I nervous?
Oh No! Am I nauseous?
Oh No! Am I thinking?
Oh No! Am I speaking?
Oh No! Am I crawling?
Oh No! Am I falling?
Hello my friend vertigo
Festering in a garden hose
Could not be less apropos
My good friend vertigo

The high is staged
Everybody's gravy
Everybody's navy
Came to rave the knave
It's tough in here
The dust is queer
The vibe is weird
Hearts full of fear
Oh No! Am I contused?
Oh No! Am I confused?
Oh No! Am I nervous?
Oh No! Am I nauseous?
Oh No! Am I thinking?
Oh No! Am I speaking?
Oh No! Am I crawling?
Oh No! Am I falling?
Hello my friend vertigo
Burning hairs in every nose
Does not know for whom it gropes
My nightmare vertigo
"perhaps the most offensive and disturbing image I've ever heard in a song" - Hans Gruber
