THIRD CAT

I asked him to to save my life
he said: NO! I am very busy
I am very busy

I asked her to kiss my wife
she said: NO! I am very busy

that may be true you don't have the time
but we have to find some time to rhyme
getting one with the sun
get in tune with the moon
won't you stay for a while?
please share a smile
only here for a while
and we're gone too soon

I asked you you to be my girl
you said: NO! I am very busy
I am very busy

You asked me to save the world
I said: NO! I am very busy

I am very busy

Phlebia

I bury myself in abstractions
I ferry away all distractions
I focus and never lose traction
I shun social interaction

I sort all my data in treemaps
Red/black, the vectors they concat
The stack overflows with recursion
Patch that, I commit with subversion

I merge with the machine
Time loses all meaning
Imprinted in silicon
Everything around me is gone

I sit with minimal motion
Express minimal emotion
Compose complex algorithms
Connections with the real world schism

I'm one with the machine
Time loses all meaning
Buried in silicon
Everything around me is gone

you're so pretty
that the starts fall down from the sky
on this shitty little city
and they light a pathway to your door

I'm so reckless
yeah, I dropped the ball on this one
why the heck was I so careless
now I've lost you like a shipwreck

now I'm so lonely
that the stars don't even shine on me
the only way i see at night
is when I dream about your eyes

I'm so busy
it's the only thing that keeps my mind
from spinning dizzy circles round and round
the thousand ways I failed

I've made a lot of mistakes...

I Am Very Busy

I’m packing up my space ship and I’m getting ready to fly off
Make sure I got a face mask in case a steady new dry cough
Shows up or I throw up when I’m breaking through the atmosphere
Sit alone at the bar and drink my last saddest beer
This the saddest year that feels like hasn’t even been started
But it’s half way over let’s pour one out for dearly departed
I’ve got an important mission I need to act candidly
I’m leaving without saying goodbye to a radder galaxy
I’m flying through space it’s just me and my puppers
I’ll call you when I get there leave me your number
I wonder what’ll be like it must feel like a paradise
This new frontier that you fear is perfect no inherent vice
No hidden defect utopia is the best no more thought silence
No disease we just feel joy just Eloi no Morlock violence
The brightest of days are lighting up ahead of me
I should of stayed to make it work instead I leave

I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me
I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me
I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me
I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me

I’m on a new rad planet I know you had to plan it
But I miss you more than ever an endeavor I can’t stand it
It’s the hardest thing I had to do I wish I hadn’t had to choose you
I’m the maddest at myself and it was sad to lose you
I knew you for the longest time I always thought that we’d be fine
But I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t a perfect time
I had a space mission but was it really worth it I
Don’t really know and so we got to divorce and cry oh
Here I am in fear and mad in new utopia
A new beginning with soothing sadness well it mostly sucks
I did this to myself I trained my brain inducing department
I had to get to my new place a studio leasing apartment
I didn’t leave the planet but like magic sort of ghosted
No space mission self made prison I’m agoraphobic

I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me
I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me
I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me
I am very busy
I know you probably miss me
But I am taking care of business
Even if it kills me

This Song is about mortality. Each instrument portrays an entity. The guitar is death. The harmonica is an angel and the vocal is the dying.
Irrespective of the subject, the song is not without humor. The outro is the actual death scene. Think Paul Reubens’ dying scene in ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’. I shared a tour bus parking area with ‘Pee wee’ at a music festival a while ago and we drank and smoked pantomiming that whole scene...several times. I doubt he even remembers but, to me, being a fringe guy...it was priceless !!!

I Am Very Busy - Paco del Stinko

Take out the trash it ain't no laugh 'cos I'm really in a hurry
Stale 'tater chips and moldy dips growing kinda furry
So clean the fridge and tighten lids then time to mop the floor
I made a spill of pickled dills I just bought at the store

I am very busy and I feel a little dizzy
If you think I'm lying come on over and quiz me


A leaky sink the toilet stinks the tub does need a scrubbin'
Soap and scum I'm hardly done when the cat looks for a rubbin'
I scratch her chin then re-begin my nasty bathroom task
Then I have to pause you know because I think she's passing gas

I start to vacuum the empty backroom when I notice paint that's peeling
I take a look and ain't mistook that I got a leaky ceiling
I get the ladder growing madder to examine the wet spot
Up I go head into a hole I totally shit you not

I get a bandage and make a sandwich out of my bleeding head
Then to the laundry 'cos I done wrongly forgot to make the bed
Tossin' linens my head starts spinning I think I might pass out
I cried for help but only whelped as nothing left my mouth

I had a snore while on the floor and forgot just how I got there
Then I tended memories rendered and slowly came aware
I got unstuck and got back up and ignored the hurtin'
I had enough of that sleepin' stuff I gotta get back to working
Bringin' the stink since 2006.

I Am Very Busy
Chthonic Black

Beyond the Farron Keep
The fire shall be lit
The corpses shall arise
Eyes aglow of raging red

Watchers of the Abyss eternal
Too busy (forever) warring
Too busy (forever) dying
Too busy (forever) dying

Taken by vows to the Wolf Blood Master

Ignite your blade
Consummate my fate
Instill in me my purpose

To place your heads upon the throne
To place your heads upon the throne
To place your heads upon the throne

I Am Very Busy - Tim Hinkle

I am very busy
I can’t join in your soiree
I have counted all the raindrops
now must put them all away
seemed like the sky was crying
over things it saw today
so I counted all the raindrops
and must put them all away

sunshine, it was promised,
would make all our troubles melt
but the fists of the infection
still upon the grieving pelt
despite daylight disinfectant
dribbling down the damage dealt
the fists of the infection
still upon the grieving pelt

hidden among rain clouds
grateful when the storm arrives
much simpler to count raindrops
than tears spilt for stolen lives

I am very busy
I can’t sing your songs today
I have counted all the raindrops
now must put them all away
when faced with persecution
I can’t think of what to say
so I’ve soaked up all the raindrops
and am hiding them away

I've soaked up all the raindrops and am hiding

I Am Very Busy
by WreckdoM

Monday got me coughing up hair
Tuesday's beast was a burden to bear
Wednesday, Wednesday ain't going nowhere
Thursday's same old shit to share
On Friday I'm chewing off my fingernails

Saturday we gonna party
Saturday we gettin' drunk
Saturday's gonna get nasty
Can't get here soon enough
Sunday I won't regret a thing
Even though I'm blowing chunks
Cause Saturday will be legendary
I'll be bragging all week long

Monday I'll be battered and bruised
Tuesday wondering if I'm concussed
All day Wednesday I'm fucking confused
On Thursday everyone's no longer amused
Come Friday they finally cut me loose

Saturday we going crazy
Saturday we tearing it down
Saturday is fist fights and looting
That's how it is from now on
Sunday we'll be on the news
But I won't bother to tune in
Cause there ain't no going back this time
The weekend no longer means anything

The microwave, it starts to cry
My food is ready
Food is ready
I got my fork, want to take a bite
I hold it steady
My food is ready
And the phone starts to ring

I am very busy
Even if you disagree
I am very busy
Won't you leave me alone?

I am very busy
I don't care what you believe
I am very busy
Won't you leave me alone?
Leave me here in my home
I won't answer the phone

I finally eat and I want a nap
Go to the bedroom
To the bedroom
I lie down and start to relax
In the afternoon
In the bedroom
Then the phone starts to ring

I am very busy
Even if you disagree
I am very busy
Won't you leave me alone?

I am very busy
I don't care what you believe
I am very busy
Won't you leave me alone?
Leave me here in my home
I won't answer the phone

I Am Very Busy - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Fascists on the evening news
And getting catshit on my shoes
And car is leaking oil pan
Don't have the cash to pay the man
And sweeping vacuum knees and scrub
I need a shower rub-a-dub
And grass is growing to my knees
And work is calling counting beans

I'm so busy
I'm very busy

Follow plague on every page
The social fighting all the rage
I cannot get my forty winks
My boss is calling, such a dink
Go get a bucket roof it leaks
The plumbing's busted toilet reeks
My car is starting on its own
My bank is calling late on loan

I'm so busy
I'm very busy

Breathe in
Breathe out
Namaste
Find a comforatable position
Feel the air moving into my mouth as I breathe
Feel it filling up my stomach
Relax, let my shoulders drop
Wait, what time is it???

Washer washer on the fritz
Bad burrito got the shits
DMV I'm stuck all day
The neighbor kid won't go away
Now work is calling run reports
We need the numbers for our charts
My laptop breathing smoke and steam
Can't you take one for the team

I'm so busy
I'm very busy
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

I'd have liked more time with this but that luxury isn't afforded you with SF

I am very busy
Thinking about you, thinking about you
And why you give me
These reasons to doubt you, reasons to doubt you
There’s time for nothing else
Not one moment for myself
For I am too busy
Thinking about you, thinking about you

I could spend my whole day
Dreaming of you, dreaming of you
I am so lazy
But what can I do, what can I
My heart plays on repeat
And it aches with every beat
I’d still spend all my day
Dreaming of you, dreaming of you

I make no demands
On my idle hands
But my eyes can never see enough
I’m a blind man without your love

There’s time for nothing else
Not one moment for myself
For I am very busy
Thinking about you, thinking about you

I Am Very Busy
Berkeley Social Scene

It’s good that you called after these last weeks, but I’ve been doing fine
You know that I’ve got a lot going on - uhuh
It’s not like I’ve been waiting for you to turn up here one night
I guess that I can say I moved on - uhuh

I’m very busy without you, without you, oh I know
I’m very busy without you, without you

Did you know I picked up my bass guitar and played again
Trying to recover where I was back then
Every other morning I go out running in the park
Another trick to restart and pretend

I'm very busy without you, without you, oh I know
I’m very busy without you, without you

Everybody says that you’re alright
Take a moment and step into the light
I only wish that I could see
That you are hurting the same as me

Not going let anything standup in my way
Not thinking about you, uhuh

I’m very busy without you, without you, oh I know
I’m very busy without you, without you, oh I know
I’m very busy without you, without you, oh I know
I’m very busy without you, without you, oh

I am very busy - Deep Orb Steel
============================
These lyrics were generated with training algorithms based on 40000 RNN training iterations from public domain gothic poetry and literature including Edgar Allen Poe and HP Lovecraft.
============================

I am very quick. Men see me from the edges,
From the corners of the strange Crated, decaying.
It is not yon child who smites the melancholy.
Star-strown fleeing in the trace were fragrant o'er the brine.

I am very busy in the middle of the night.
The pageant hath found, and will be right.
I am very hungry of your gaze and all.
And moving forms, The dark lemurs saw.

I am very hungry notes and all, Poisonous O'Clock in bade it comes.
For ages placed at the dark beasts base.
Just shewed thou to strange pure Odyssey of the ages.
We could see to the black spire that loomed ahead.

Here was the sky it told me,
not millions and not the wide world of notions,
With alien crew From my Odyssey to sense the beast.
With strange wisdom of Golden Truth twilight glooms

Chorus
I am very busy in the middle of the night.
I am very busy in the middle of the night.
I am very busy in the middle of the night.
I am very busy in the middle of the night.
