I'm Covered In It Now

Post by vowlvom »

Vom Vorton

In my teens and twenties
I was a music fiend
and I always would be
that’s the way that it seemed
all my spare cash
went on new CDs
but then sadly somehow
I reached my thirties

and suddenly I found
that my interests had shifted
I wanted to see every film
that ever existed

It’s all so new
I’m not sure how
I fell into it
But I'm covered in it now
I’m stuck like glue
I’m not sure how
I got into it
But I’m covered in it now

when I first lived alone
every time I’d eat
I’d make sure that my plate
had at least one kind of meat
but somehow things changed
and though it was accidental
I found changing the focus
made me more experimental

suddenly I found
it no longer had its hooks in me
as I got more and more
into vegetarian cookery

You got the devil in your eyes
You hold my head underwater
And I would be your sacrifice
Like I'm not somebody's daughter

I know you're bad for me
That much is true
So why can't I turn away from the monster that is you, you, you, you

Give me your poison
And turn the music up too loud
You got me goin'
You spun your web and I'm covered in it now

Can't get a read on who you are
You're just so damn enigmatic
And I will always play your fool
I guess it's just automatic

Tell me, what do you want
You won't let me know
You never loved me, and it hurts but I can't let go, go, go, go

Give me your poison
And turn the music up too loud
You got me goin'
You spun your web and I'm covered in it now

I know you're bad for me
That much is true
So why can't I turn away from the monster that is you, you, you, you

Give me your poison
And turn the music up too loud
You got me goin'
You spun your web and I'm covered in it now

Give me your poison
And turn the music up too loud
You got me goin'
You spun your web and I'm covered in it now

“I’m Covered In It Now”
by Lunkhead

Do you read the New York Times
For all the latest hot headlines
Or maybe you love the Washington Post
For current events, yeah, it's the most
Whatever paper that you subscribe to
Whatever paper that you turn to

I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now

Do you listen to NPR?
In the bathroom or in your car
Or maybe you love WCBS
For current events, yeah, it's the best
Whatever station that you tune to
Whatever station that you turn to

I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now

Now I am a really big deal
What they say about me is real
You need to know just what I'm doing
What fresh hell that I am brewing
Everything I do and say
The cameras just won't go away
I keep getting overexposed
Till you shut your ears, eyes, mouth, and nose

Do you like to turn on CNN?
Saved as a favorite on your television
Or maybe your dealer is Fox News
Their commentators give you all the clues
Whatever channel you set your dial to
Whatever channel that you nod and smile to

I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now
I'm covered in it now

I'm Covered In It - Brown Word and the Big Whine

Sometimes a man has to fight for what's right
In the face of obvious tyranny
Sometimes you're just pushed so far beyond breaking
Can't see reason - the coward's folly

I wanted blood
Didn't really matter how
Anyway I'm covered in it now
Won't take no shit
That's more than I'll allow
Either way I'm covered in it now

I wanna drink from the skull of my enemies
I wanna bathe in their ravaged defeat
My desire is my only obstacle
My denial magnificent in its reach

I wanted blood
Didn't really matter how
Anyway I'm covered in it now
Won't take their shit
That's more than I'll allow
Either way I'm covered in it now

Wave the flag for majesty
Wave the flag for might
Arm yourself for all you fear
Find someone to prove you right

Seize the day for freedom
Seize the day for sorrow
Seize the ones they tell you to
Consequence is for tomorrow

I'm Covered In It Now - Sly Eli

A piece of a piece of a piece
It breaks off and washes away from my feet
It catches a whorl
And then it's gone

The faults that are lining my back
The cracks are appearing and tightening the slack
I'm learning to cope
With being lonely

I'm covered in it now
Changes, I'll never change for you
You know what's on my mind
Falling, I'm falling deeper this time

A wave of a wave of a wave
I'm tumbling I'm yawing away from my grave
There's no light to see
As it approaches

I’m Covered in It Now
by Lichen Throat

I cut the hardtop off my Ford
To have a convertible.
I drove to where the seabirds soared
To sit and watch the gulls.
I sat in the front, and then in back
As the sun climbed in the sky.
I was so sunburned when I got back,
It hurt to blink my eyes.
I didn’t wear sunblock that day,
But I’m covered in it now.
And I tried to weld the roof back on,
But I didn’t know how.

All of the kids were partying
Outside on Friday night.
Shaking hips and shimmying
Under red and green lights.
They kept dancing under willow trees,
But I left after a while.
They were dressed so nattily,
But I had no sense of style.
I didn’t own any cotton twill,
But I’m covered in it now.
And I didn’t hold on to ill will;
The cut worm forgives the plow.

When Rebecca met Eliezer at the well,
Was there another guy in back
Who’d waited years to speak to her,
Whose hope had just turned black?
Was he so sad to see her go,
He dressed in ash and sacks?

I rode the chairlift to the top,
And cold seeped into my bones.
Others were there with moms and pops,
But I was all alone.
I wore an Obermeyer suit
To seal out all the snowflakes.
Left and right, in my plastic boots,
I left two tracks like snow snakes.
I didn’t hear the avalanche
Set off by the snowplow.
And I try to dig out, but I can’t,
’cause I’m covered in it now.

I'm Covered In It Now
by FireBear

I search for an angel in the darkness,
but I fail to see the light
My minds worn out from the struggle,
and I cant find a way to quite my mind

I can't fight the darkness
(I try and I try and I try and I try)
I'm covered in it now
I can't fight the sin
(I try and I try and I try and I try)
I'm covered in it now

Temptation rears its ugly head,
and drags me down into the deep abyss
This cant be all there is to life;
I must break free to discover what's in me

Silence, silence, silence finds me
Now I, Now I, Now I can breathe

I can't fight the darkness
(I try and I try and I try and I try)
I'm covered in it now
I can't fight the sin
(I try and I try and I try and I try)
I'm covered in it now

I'm Covered in it Now
by Brother Baker

You make me sing
I’m withering

And I’ve never danced well before

You make me sing
My voice is hoarse, it’s overused
I’m splintering
I’m leaking everything for you

And I can’t keep my feet on the floor

I thought I could evade it
But I’m covered in it now
I never could escape it
And I’m covered in it now

You make me sing
My words are tired, overused
I’m splintering
I’m spilling everything for you

And I can’t tell the roof from the floor

I never could escape it
And I’m covered in it now
I’m starting to embrace it
And I’m covered in it now

You make me sing
I’m tired and hoarse, I’m overused
I’m withering
I still have everything for you

And I’ve never danced well before

I'm Covered In It Now - Tim Hinkle

We grew our garden in this soil
I’m covered in it now
I will no longer sweat or toil
but sleep beneath the plough

I loved this place and I loved you
I was such a carefree fool
I could not have conceived you’d bid me adieu
with a blow from a gardening tool

A crack on my head
And that’s it—now I’m dead
My life spilled out over the ground
Now on top of me
Such sublime greenery
And my body will never be found

We grew our garden in this muck
I’m covered in it now
You’ll join me when you run out all your luck
Just a matter of when and how

I'm Covered In It Now
by Berkeley Social Scene

I dreamt about you again last night
Of the good life that we used to have
I woke up from a sense of loss
For the time when we were best friends

Whatever you think of me now
Can you see me for me
When you’re showing me how
I will mirror whatever I see
When I look your in eyes
I regret why I hurt you and how
Guilt or fear or shame
I’m covered in it now

You thought we were destined to be
Forever together just you and me
I made mistakes I regret
You haven’t forgiven me yet

Whatever you think of me now
Can you see me for me
When you're showing me how
I will mirror whatever I see
When I look your in eyes
I regret why I hurt you and how
Guilt or fear or shame
I’m covered in it now

Getting caught up in the moment
Ruined the future somehow
I’ll never be sorry enough
Just have to live with it now

Whatever you think of me now
Can you see me for me
When you're showing me how
I will mirror whatever I see
When I look your in eyes
I regret why I hurt you and how
Guilt or fear or shame
I’m covered in it now

Whatever you think of me now
Can you see me for me
When you're showing me how
I will mirror whatever I see
When I look your in eyes
I regret why I hurt you and how
Guilt or fear or shame
I’m covered in it now

Night Sky

Just the bit of road I see
Stretches fine ahead of me
There were always distractions
Flashing, seeking my reactions
But I stayed true to my own sweetest dream
Crisp and clean
Am I covered by that now?

In my path I left behind
Others who I could not find
In my heart a familiar sound
So I did not look around
To see the source of the cries I could surely hear
They were so near
So I’m covered in it now

On the day my path was blocked
I saw others, some were shocked
Not the people who’d been trying
To set for me a bright light shining
On the perils of the map I was following
wallowing
In what I’m covered in right now

At first, I thought I understood
What happened here. I thought I could
Lead people past this obstruction
Lest it lead to our destruction
Then I recalled the wisdom of the warning chorus
I had ignored
Shall I be a cover for them now?

I was not blind I made my choice
To close my mind to the knowing voice
With wisdom borne of experience
Give up my claim of innocence
If our fight now is over whose life matters
Nothing’s sadder
And there’s no cover for it now
Night Sky is Sally on lyrics, Steve on drums, and Matt on the other stuff

I'm Covered in it Now
by glennny

With a whimper
Without a reason
Kept it simple
To fade away

Can someone tell me
Can no one answer
Unless they’re selling
Me out today

When I wanted you to listen
You ignored me

After basking in your asking
I spun a web of lies to make you proud
It got tricky and oh so sticky
I can’t escape, cuz I’m covered in it now

Your suspicion
suspends belief
No conditions
Will satisfy

My evasion
Is everlasting
Until occasions
In which I might die

An elusive situation
May undo me

After basking in your asking
I spun a web of lies to make you proud
It got tricky and oh so sticky
I can’t escape, cuz I’m covered in it now

When I wanted to come clean with you
It felt selfish and too due to do

Guess I made my bed for good now
please ignore me

After basking in your asking
I spun a web of lies to make you proud
I got tricky and oh so sticky
I can’t escape, cuz I’m covered in it now

Doctor Bronner, every time I wash my locks I use your concentrated castile soap
Cmaj7 Fmaj7
It’s an honor, and I’m a satanist but I’ll still let you be my Pope

F Fm C Am
Doctor Bronner, when I was young we used bathe in the lake with your fragrance free
Dm Am G
But then I grew up and branched out to peppermint, and oil of the old tea tree

Chorus
F Am
All One or None, the moral ABC,
E7 AM
I go to church naked and you preach it all to me
Dm AM
Health is wealth. Eternally, you say
E E7 F Fm C F Fm C D7 G7
Dilute, refill from gallon jug at store. OK!


Doctor Bronner, Your’re with me when I leave the house no matter what I may forget
I might leave my keys, my thermos of tea, or my book upon the cabinet

Oh Doctor Bronner, they might last longer, those earthy smelling Tom’s of Maine sticks
But when it’s put to the test, deodorant works best when you rub it on a freshly cleaned pit

Chorus

Doctor Bronner, you’re a goner, but you live upon us every day
Something to ponder when I take off my clothes and let your lather wipe my sins away.

Doctor Bronner, they no longer carry almond at the Co-op down on Drake and Howe
I’ve grown fonder of the smell, perhaps you can tell, in fact I’m covered in it now.

Chorus
