Half-Assed

I thought this song was dumb, but it actually has one of my favorite verses ever. It starts with this ridiculous verse I don't much care for at all:

you start trippin
and i start slippin away
i was taught to zip it
if i got nothin nice to say
and down in the texas of my heart
driving a really big truck
headed down a dirt road
my love is scrunchin up its features
the really big eyes
big lips, big nose


"The Texas of my heart?!" Seriously? No. But the chorus is pretty good:

just show me a moment that is mine
its beauty blinding and unsurpassed
make me forget every moment that went by
and left me so half-hearted
cuz i felt it so half-assed


I like that. I like it very much. But it's not the line of which I'm in awe. That line comes later in the song and goes a little something like this:

spring is super in the supermarkets
and the strawberries prance and glow
never mind that they're all kinda tart and tasteless
as strawberries go
meanwhile wild things are not for sale
anymore than they are for show
so i'll be outside, in love with the kind of beauty
it takes more than eyes to know


"So I'll be outside, in love with the kind of beauty it takes more than eyes to know." Wow. That's it. I mean, that's really it. I love that! Someday I hope someone sees in me "the kind of beauty it takes more than eyes to know." Then my life will be complete.

Maybe later I'll tell you about "Shroud" or "Unrequited" or "78% H2O."
