NUR EIN XV - This Is Fine

Post by iVeg »

Inflatable Vegetables [and I remembered to attach my file]

Did you ever think
Bugs would overthrow the government
Try to mind control the president, baby

Did you ever think
Fear would dominate the human race
Make us mask ourselves and stay in place, maybe

Sift through all the propaganda [oh]
No, hide behind bandanas [oh]
Another month and we’ll be okay

Life is more than horrible
This is fine, this is
Something almost wonderful
This is fine, this is fine

Did you ever think
Vaccination is the antichrist
Out of toilet paper, out of rice, baby

Sift through all the propaganda [oh]
No, hide behind bandanas [oh]
We embrace from six feet away

Life is more than horrible
This is fine, this is
Something almost wonderful
This is fine, this is fine

Treading water in a sea of debt [oh a sea of debt]
Let’s go surfing so we’re over it [it’s not my fault]
Tomorrow we could all be slaves [oh]

Life is more than horrible
This is fine, this is
[Na na na na na]
This is fine, this is
Something almost wonderful
This is fine, this is fine

This is Fine
- Nuke Skyblaster Reporting for DUTY!!!

I feel loosey goosey tight
If you say I'm wrong, then I know I'm right
And every time I try to love you, you start a fight
When you say it's black, I know it's white
When you say it's daytime, I look outside and it's night
But still, I think things are gonna be alright

This is fine
I got a bottle of wine
This is fine

Oh, please spare me all your contradiction
Pour another glass, lubricate the friction
Just one thing can get us through the night

This is fine
Yeah, this is totally fine baby, this is fine.
We got a bottle of wine. That can fix everything. We can work it out
Another bottle of wine, we're fixing everything
Another bottle of wine
Another bottle of wine

Vom Vorton (shadow entry, obvz)

she thinks I’m smart
because I know all the equations
even though I’ve proved the opposite
on regular occasions
she thinks I’m smart
because I answer all the questions
though I tend to shut my mouth
and let others take the best ones

I don’t know who
put all these ideas in her mind
but she
thinks I am smart
and this is fine

she thinks I’m strong
because I carry all the shopping
though I use a trolley
to prevent the bags from dropping
she thinks I’m strong
because I can give her a lift
but I’m pretty sure
driving a car
is not a unique gift

I don’t know who
put all these ideas in her mind
but she
thinks I am strong
and this is fine
she thinks I’m strong
and this is fine

she thinks I’m charming
intelligent and wise
counterpoint: I’m not
but I’d love to see me through her eyes
asked for my best qualities
I shrug and hesitate
but at least one of us
thinks I’m great

I don’t know who
puts these thoughts into her mind
but she
thinks I am great
and this is fine
she thinks I’m great
and this is fine

This is Fine - Brown Word and the Big Whine

I went to sleep and never returned
Waking nightmare took the land by storm
He wasn't handsome, talented, or slick
He looked like a clown and talked like a dick
Now nobody alive can reverse the spell
Escalator to nowhere in a half-baked hell

This is fine, he ain't a politician
This is fine, he's a decent Christian
Business man in a suit that doesn't even fit
King Baby in a game of diminishing wit

He'd save his soul with World War III
If it makes a buck especially
Now nobody alive can reverse the cray-cray
What the hell would Teddy Roosevelt say?

This is fine, he once owned a casino
This is fine, he had his own TV show
Business man in a suit that doesn't even fit
King Baby in a game of diminishing wit

You're a babbling, blabbering contradiction
None of the truth, not even decent fiction
You're a supersized fraud, better than the real thing
Twice the carbohydrates but only half as filling

America's falling but the world keeps turning
We're sipping our tea like the room ain't burning
America's falling but the world keeps turning
We're sipping our tea like the room ain't burning

This is fine, for the ugly American
This is fine, if you're a holy Republican
This is fine, if you're making your money
This is fine, if you can step over the bodies
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

"This Is Fine" - Third Cat

though you're holding me tight
still so far away
so just be here tonight
lost in yesterday

this is fine
a natural feeling
my light no longer shines
this is fine
just need some healing
some new way in
so I can shine again

see me moving on up
still down on the floor
think I've filled up my cup
know I want some more

this is fine
a natural feeling
my light no longer shines
this is fine
just need some healing
some new way in
so I can shine again

never felt more lonely than
in this crowded club with you
never felt more red than
when I was painted blue

this is fine
a natural feeling
my light no longer shines
this is fine
just need some healing
some new way in
so I can shine again

This Is Fine
by Lichen Throat

My dad took me out in the desert to get sand,
where a dune piled up against a hill.
He shoveled it into five-gallon buckets,
and loaded them into the back of our truck.
We lined them up on the north side of the house,
so they wouldn’t get brittle in the sun.
Those big rocks over there are boulders,
and cobbles are the size of your fist.
Gravel is about the size of your toes.
This is coarse sand, and this is fine.

In college, in the soils laboratory,
we dug up samples, and dried them in the oven.
We dropped them into a set of stacked sieves,
each one finer than the last.
Put them in the shaker for 30 minutes,
and out they come, all neatly sorted.
Boulders are a quarter meter and up;
cobbles go down to 64 millimeters,
and gravel is between 64 and 2.
This is coarse sand, and this is fine.

Kids tracked sand inside your house
and ground it into the carpet.
That sand is really bad;
that sand is fine.

Dams trap all the sediment
flowing down the Rio Grande,
so the bed keeps getting coarser
and the river gets narrower.
What used to be almost a mile wide
is now just a couple hundred feet.
There aren’t too many boulders yet,
but cobbles are getting more common.
There’s lots of gravel everywhere,
and a little coarse sand—but no more fine.

This Is Fine
Micah Sommersmith

They told me to be sensible, they told me to be smart
They told me not to waste my time with music or with art
They said to pick a discipline to make my wallet fat
And diagramming sentences is where the money’s at

The subject is determined syntactically
The agent is determined semantically
The topic is determined pragmatically
It’s all a load of crap if you’re asking me
But I don’t mind
This is fine

They taught me about clitics, they taught me IPA
How tiny human infants learn to mean the things they say
And then they said, “Young linguist, there’s enough you understand
That now it’s time to tell us your opinion of the man.”

Chomsky is a legend, Chomsky is a fraud
Chomsky is a heretic, Chomsky is a god
The sightless eyes of Chomsky now watch me like a hawk
Though Chomsky can’t distinguish ‘tween a kitten and a rock

The subject is determined syntactically
The agent is determined semantically
The topic is determined pragmatically
It’s all a load of crap if you’re asking me
But I don’t mind
This is fine

These colorless green ideas are calmer when they’re awake
But all these blicking wugs are too much for me to take
By now I’m in so deep I need an extra pair of galoshes
I haven’t felt this out of sorts since the gostak distimmed the doshes

The subject is determined syntactically
The agent is determined semantically
The topic is determined pragmatically
It’s all a load of crap if you’re asking me

The subject is determined syntactically
The agent is determined semantically
The topic is determined pragmatically
It’s all a load of crap if you’re asking me
But I don’t mind
This is fine

this is a song about being bored and anxious and trying to keep occupied in lockdown, and also feeling guilty for being so self-obsessed in a global pandemic, sipping coffee and ignoring the outside world like the meme dog.

The Lowest Bitter - This Is Fine

oh I'm okay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
no I'm okay

cartoon of a dog in a burning building
the meme is tired, and so am I
"I'm okay with the events that are unfolding currently"
this is fucking horrible, no "this is fine"

scroll through twitter, join the latest
outrage-ratio'd quote tweets
(this is how we spend our time)
do the music quiz on Zoom,
every Thursday, every week
(Adam, tell me this'll be fine)
a book of fiendishly hard sudoku
I start but can't complete
(this is how we spend our time)
and I'm just feeling like that dog,
trapped inside some tired meme,
just repeating this is fine this is fine this is fine this is fine this is fine
(this'll be fine)

oh I'm okay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
no I'm okay
(this'll be fine)

killing beasts in Witcher 3
and feeling like I wanna scream
(this is how we spend our time)
doing 30 days of yoga
I'm on day, um... 43
(Adriene, tell me this'll be fine)
yeah I'm here on AO3
reading PWP
(this is how we spend our time)
and I'm just feeling like that dog,
trapped inside some tired meme,
just repeating this is fine this is fine this is fine this is fine this is fine
(this'll be fine)

oh I'm okay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
no I'm okay

This Is Fine by Cloverdance

I can sit on the porch and breath fresh air
Wash my face and brush my hair
Read a book, put on TV
Play video games, watch DVD's
Put on music and play a song
No one's here to sing along

It's a beautiful sunny day
I'm not happy but I'm ok
Everyone stays inside
It's for now
This is fine for now

I can't fall in love or see my friends
Fly away for a long weekend
Feel something that's worth feeling like
Nothing's left when nothing's right
Daylight in a pitch-black room
So little left I want to do

It's a beautiful sunny day
I'm not happy but I'm ok
Everyone stays inside
It's for now
This is fine for now

This Is Fine
Rob From Amersfoort

I'm running fast without moving
I'm screaming loud without sound
I say a lot but nobody hears me
I'm searching for what cannot be found

This is fine
This is so fine
I can't stop having a good time
I strive to survive
Having the time of my life

I always brag that I am modest
I'm so far behind I'm almost in the lead
I lie that I never lie
My attempts to stop myself never succeed

This is fine
This is so fine
I can't stop having a good time
I strive to survive
Having the time of my life
This is fine

This is fine
This is so fine
I am never out of line
I strive to survive
This awful crash drive
This is fine

I light a cigarette to calm myself down
So glad you're here, but you're never around
I'm glad you stayed

Smoking is bad so I'm glad that I quit
Another puff will help me deal with your shit
I'm doing okay

I just wish you'd fall in love with me
Happy or sad, I'm glad we disagree
Won't you stay away and be mine?
All I know is this is fine

I slam the door as I ease myself out
Don't mean to bother, are you hearing me shout?
I'm not feeling well

Sometimes I wonder why you put your foot down
So wish washy, yeah, you're acting the clown
Put me through hell

I just wish you'd fall in love with me
Happy or sad, I'm glad we disagree
Won't you stay away and be mine?
Well, I guess all this is fine

This Is Fine
by see-man-ski

our economy has crippled
but my costs are down
it feels like every bodies living
in a one horse town

this is fine
this is fine
I've got nothing going on my mind

living each day
like a movie on rewind
waiting for it all to end
but there is no end in sight

this is fine
this is fine
I've got nothing going on my mind

life is on reverse
stuck in the meaningless

This Is Fine, by Fisher & Diaz

[Diaz]: Last time I checked, this was the United States of America, and I have an immune system, so my plan is to not wear a mask and go to as many businesses as I can to help stimulate the economy, because honestly? This is fine.

[Fisher]: When can you go get a haircut?
When will normal return?
When can you hit up the gym again?
Y’all got some lessons to learn.
People are losing their minds from all this self-isolation
But some of us going through hell

[Diaz]: Some of us on a staycation!

[Fisher]: Stop with the shit, you might take a hit, but lots of folks getting hit harder
Ain’t got my stimulus check

[Diaz]: I’m excited for sourdough starter!

[Fisher]: I’m nervous to ask all my friends and family “You got a mask that you wear when you’re out of the house?” I just can’t even if some dumb answer falls out their mouth.

[Fisher]: Everyone is trying the best they can
It’s hard without a thought out plan
Hope there’s a god that understands
Some folks still need a helping hand

[Diaz]: We’re all in the same boat

[Fisher]: Yeah, and it’s called the Titanic
Rich folks are gonna be fine, the rest of us starting to panic
I guess if I gotta, I could tread water, but I can’t do it forever
We won’t all survive this, but we gon through get this together?*
Don’t be Kate Winslet man, you don’t need that whole damn door
People from steerage are sinking, down to the ocean floor
We on a mission, get folks to listen to Fisher & Diaz
If we don’t start helping each other, I’m fucking out of ideas
If you’re financially up right now, hit up somebody’s who’s down
Go send a friend some money straight to their Venmo account
And say it’s a free gift, one they don’t need to return
Don’t just sit on your dumb ass and watch this dumb world burn.

[Fisher & Diaz]: Everyone is trying the best they can
It’s hard without a thought out plan
Hope there’s a god that understands
Some folks could use a helping hand

This is Fine - Frankie Big Face

The sun sets in the west
And the day is blanketed by stars
And we are blessed
Caressing our wounds and scars
And hope, hope is a stalled parade
Of ghostly subway cars
But this is fine
This is fine
If not for all time
This is fine for now

The worst thing about trying your best
Is knowing the test is criminal from the start
But I must confess
I guess I never really tried that hard
Now love, love is a masquerade
Of grossly overplayed cards
But this is fine
This is fine
This may be our last dance
But for now
We may not get another chance
But for now
Under this circumstance
This is fine for now

This song is about my nephew, Jonathan, who had spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) and passed away when he was 7 months old. The lyrical contradiction is singing a lullaby to a child about what he's going to be when he grows up (when he won't) and how everything will be fine (when it isn't).



This is Fine - Lucky Spoon

Close you eyes
Go to sleep
The day has been hard
Though you haven’t left you feet

Little child
Dream so sweet
Of all the great things
That you’ll grow up to be

A doctor. A lawyer.
A captain at sea
The places you’ll go
And the people you’ll meet
A simple designer who meets a nice girl
To share your adventure all over the world

Rest for now
You are strong
You’ll grow up so big
Like your dad and your mom

We love you
All the time
Don’t worry young one
You will turn out just fine

Your dreams are the clouds
That are fluffy and white
Then light up with color as
Day turns to night
They’ll take any problems
And make them all right
You’re special
My beautiful child

Balance Lost

An accordion plays in an empty room
Serenading a bottle of wine
What once ran over will be empty soon
I'll have to be sober, but this is fine

There's not enough space in my empty head
To calculate the time it will take
To wait for this
I'm already late

I wrote this verse with some filler lines
I really don't care if it's good
If I come 25th then this is fine
It's lunchtime so I'll prepare some food

There's not enough space in my empty fridge
To compensate the time it will take
To make a sandwich
I'm already late
There's not enough space in my empty head
To calculate the time it will take
To wait for this
I'm already late

right is wrong and left is right
the sun is dark, the moon alight

there’s still a voice under my head
it comes from deep inside my bed

The dogs are barking at the spoon
They forklifted last afternoon

and the clock signs madly like a mime
who’s counting in ragtime

This is fine
This is fine
I’m fine
This is fine

lemons turned to applesauce
When hamilton became my boss

I stabbed the chance to take my shot
was on my mind but I forgot

the preacher eats, while the farmer prays
he’s mourning for the end of days

my cup’s half empty with champaign
let’s toast to desert rain

This Is Fine - Hot Pink Halo

***

I'm gonna draw a line
That'll bring us all together
I wanna draw a line
That'll join us all forever

We've reached the edge of
What was sketched
And now the rest is history
I've been oblique
I've hit the peak of living
Like a mystery

This is romance in mathematics
This is art finding ways to help us see

I know where I'm going
I know what I need
You're the beginning and the end and
Everything I'm not
And I need you here next to me

I wanna travel straight
Collapsing time until it's flatter
I'm gonna travel straight
To the heart of the matter

With coloured ink
We've reached the brink
Illuminating our past
We've changed by turns
New lines are learned
It's a life lived in contrast

This is romance in mathematics
This is art finding ways to help us be

I know where I'm going
I know what I need
You're the beginning and the end and
Everything I'm not
And I need you here next to me
You are the point
You spin me round
You eclipse everything
You are the point
You spin me round
You eclipse everything

I draw the line and this is fine
I draw the line
You draw the round and I am found
You draw the round

I know where I'm going
I know what I need
You're the beginning and the end and
Everything I'm not
And I need you here next to me
You are the point
You spin me round
You eclipse everything
You are the point
You spin me round
You eclipse everything

And I need you here

And I need you here

I'm gonna draw a line
That'll bring us all together
I wanna draw a line

This Is Fine
by Max Bombast

I need someone to say
"You're done.
Pencils down.
Hand in what you got... or get out"

I need deadlines or
I will always tinker and
While away my time without you

If you gave me a month
I know I'd get less done
Than if I'd had an hour or two

So tell me (or I'll go too far)

"This is fine."
"This is fine."
Tell me time after time after time

At the end of the day
I need someone to say
"This is fine."

Nick Soma - This Is Fine

Well I have always been a pessimist
And things are looking grim right now for me
Money's running low, depression's knocking at the door
Darkness is all that I can see

The world is turning sadder,
People getting madder
And I am waiting for a sign
Life changing for the better
Don't know how, it doesn't matter
Just something so I can say that
This is fine

Well I have always been an optimist
I knew some day would bring a change
I look into your eyes and it all just seems surreal
How I've come to find you, it's so strange

The world is turning sadder,
People getting madder
But that is OK in my mind
Life changed, and for the better
Now nothing else will matter
Whatever tomorrow brings, I'll say
This is fine

The world is turning darker
And I finally see the light
Catastrophe and terror
And me, I feel alright
The world has become colder
And I feel so warm inside
You're the only thing that's on my mind

The world is turning sadder,
People getting madder
But it's alright now in my mind
'Cause soon as I hear your name
Even if I'm engulfed in flames
The only thing you'll hear me say is
This is fine
This is fine
This is fine

This is Fine
by Boffo Yux Dudes

Divided we’re united all against the other side
We’re safe inside our houses and there’s nowhere left to hide
We have too many choices and there’s nothing to decide
Stop thinking and give in

Your echo chamber tells you how to think and how to feel
The feed gives you the truth even though nothing’s really real
Our passions are inflamed though feeling’s lost all its appeal
We’re losing just to win

Chorus:
This is fine, this is fine
The room’s on fire, we’re out of time
The reason that you’re out of line
Your perception’s not quite like mine

You’re trading in fake news you don't have all the facts
Veracity and morals are just something that you lack
The only way to play defense is stay on the attack
You need to see the truth

Why is your mind all twisted? You've been led down the wrong way
You can't open your mind - now you're such an easy prey
Stop acting like a sheep. Listen to what I say
My belief is your proof

This is fine, this is fine
The room’s on fire, we’re out of time
The reason that you’re out of line
Your perception’s not quite like mine

This is fine, this is fine, this is fine
oh, it's fine. Oh so fine. Oh so fine....

The virus it affects us and there’s no one that’s immune
It’s all a hoax, a scam, a trap: it is our final doom!
Let’s muddy up the waters so we can see through the gloom
And all you do is whine

We’ll all die of starvation ‘til the rotund lady sings
Don't look to yesterday - look for what tomorrow brings
I live in the present and I fear so many things
And I say this is fine

This is fine, this is fine
The room’s on fire, we’re out of time
The reason that you’re out of line
Your perception’s not quite like mine

This is fine. It's Fine. Yes, it's very fine.
