dot dot dot by starfinger

These are the stories
that nobody knows
the piggy made a house from
the emperor's clothes

the wolf blew it down
and proceeded to feast

died of a stroke with the mark of the beast

Jack and jill
went up the hill
with a basket of heads

old macdonald had a dog
and ate him with bread


these are the stories
these are the facts
you can say anything
mother hubbard with an axe


dot dot dot dot
how does this thing end
dot dot dot dot
can we still be friends


i drew a picture
the ink is my blood
i will claim ignorance
if you think it's dumb

there once was a boy
with a pie in the corner
pulled out an eye
when he stuck in his thumb

these are the stories
that nobody knows
these are the times when
anything goes

i once was dead
and now I'm alive
i once was dead
and now I'm alive

dot dot dot dot
how does this thing end
dot dot dot dot
can we still be friends

(Vom Vorton)

I am locked in a place with no food and no water
in a disputed base on the Mexican border
every day I hear a pair of feet walk
up and ask if I might be ready to talk

well they starve me and freeze me, tip over my bed
they don’t let me sleep to get into my head
and when the door opens at the flick of a switch
I keep my mouth shut, I refuse to snitch

I just say…
is that all you’ve got?
and we stare at each other
dot dot dot…

each morning they wake me with pills in a cup
but I still pledge allegiance to “shut the hell up”
I stare at the walls and I find a release
inside of my head I can still be at peace

they won’t get the answers from me that they seek
I don’t understand them; to me they’re all greek
if I have one regret that makes me feel like a jerk
it’s that I claimed to understand how magnets work

and they say…
they will leave me to rot
but I know that they’re bluffing
dot dot… dot?

You know some things are better left unsaid
But what if the things start to speak for themselves
And then you have to block your ears and sing 'la la la la la'
But that annoys the elves who live behind the cabinet
And they come out at night and they hit you in your sleep, yelling
Bang, the world is round
Bang, the world is round

Some things are better left unsaid
But no one hears them anyway, so what's the point?
I can go on and on and on and say what I want
But when I say what I want, the CIA starts following me
Dot dot dot, they follow me here
Dot dot dot, they follow me there
Dot dot dot, they follow me here
I only wish the elves would care
But they're all over the secret agents
Scratching themselves on their bristly hair, yelling
Bang, the world is round
Bang, the world is round

Dot dot dot, they follow me here
Dot dot dot, they follow me there
Dot dot dot, they follow me here
Dot dot dot, they follow me there

DOT DOT DOT
by Macaque Attack

Verse 1
Kleptocracy, Plutocracy,
Can't really call this a democracy,
Oligarchs ruling from their London forts,
Old City now a playground for the monied sorts,

Wealth brings deliverance from everyday toil,
How much longer 'til the public boils,
Champagne and caviar, abusing girls,
Food banks and benefits a different world

Chorus
A question avoided,
Another pack of lies,
Can't give a straight answer,
What a surprise,
Shut up and be happy with what you've got,
Anything to say, dot dot dot

Another question avoided,
Another pack of lies,
Can't give a straight answer,
What a surprise,
Shut up and be happy with what you've got,
Anything to say, dot dot dot

Verse 2
We elect to protect and serve the interests,
Of us and like us but it's all neglect,
Lining their pockets then laughing inside,
When scrutinised and asked to justify

What they're doing for you, what they're doing for me,
For the poor, the unfortunate, needy and weak,
It's getting too brazen, no need to hide,
All established facts are being denied

Chorus

Verse 3
Lambs to the slaughter, following wolves,
Sheep's clothing unneeded for oblivious fools,
A cadaverous fox is piping the way,
Dancing to dystopia, a wonderful day

Dancing to dystopia this wonderful day,
Dancing to dystopia this wonderful day,
Dancing to dystopia this wonderful day,
Dancing to dystopia this wonderful day

Chorus * 2

You say that you’ve got trouble
You say that you’ve lost the bubble
You say you need some money
Well, so do we all, honey
I’d like to help you but
DOT DOT DOT

You say that you’re a prince
Without a shred of evidence
You say that you need my cash
And I’ll get more in a flash
I’d like to help you but

I repeat myself, I repeat everything
I repeat myself, I repeat everything
Love doesn't mean everything to me
Love doesn't mean everything to me
I repeat myself, I repeat everything
Standing on the corner
Propositioning Supporters
Under a street sign
Flame broiled prime time
I repeat myself
I repeat myself
I repeat myself
I repeat myself
On a bended knee
Under a shade tree
Wearing my ascot
Taking those pot shots
I repeat myself, I repeat everything
I repeat myself, I repeat everything
Love doesn't mean everything to me
Love doesn't mean everything to me
Love doesn't mean
I repeat everything
I'm a picture show
I'm a do-ci-do
I'm a to and fro
I'm a buck and beau
Dot Dot Dot
Dot Dot Dot
Dot Dot Dot
Dot Dot Dot
Dot Dot Dot
Dot Dot Dot
Dot Dot Dot
Dot Dot Dot
I repeat myself, I repeat everything
I repeat myself, I repeat everything
Love doesn't mean everything to me
Love doesn't mean everything to me
I repeat myself, I repeat everything
I repeat myself, I repeat everything

Dot Dot Dot
by Bombernaughts

The way he looked at me
It told me everything
And I could tell he felt... you know...
He had something to say... yeah.

His presence was imposing
He came right up to me, as if to say
The most impo(r)tent thing he could say

And he said d-dot dot dot right to me
He added d-dot dot dot, that's times three
And his elipses were trailing me
And he did the dot dot dot-da-da dum

I got the message, so loud and clear
What more to say
As for his eloquence, there was something I
Had to convey

And I said d-dot dot dot back to him
And I said that dot dot three times again
I wrote him a sonnet of elipses
Just so he would know how that made me feel

And he said--No, I said dot-dot back to him
He'll never dare treat me that way again
And I said d-dot dot just one last time
That final d-dot, dot, dot...
