cape & merc.

"all my words are second-hand..."

I don't usually fill out the cute little questionnaire things that pop up around livejournal but I saw this one in scorpy01's journal and liked it. (She doesn't usually fill them out either.) The deal is that you must answer the questions using song lyrics. Should I post what songs they are from? Or should I make people guess?

1.) Are you male or female?
Nothing stands in your way when you're a boy

2.) Describe your neighborhood
Everywhere's a backdrop to a scripted play

3.) How do you look?
I have the look of a son with all the love and poison of London

4.) If you could say something to the person you like, what would it be?
How in the world can I wish for this?: Never to be torn apart--close to you 'til the last beat of my heart

5.) Where do you wish you were right now?
I've been waiting for a guide to come and take me by the hand

6.) What would you say to your best friend?
Smack ist Dreck, stop it oder verreck!

7.) Any words of wisdom
Why don't you try being stupid instead of smart?

8.) Describe yourself
I'm the dandy highwayman so sick of easy fashion

(For what it's worth, I dress my tears in costumes)

9.) What do you think of drugs and alcohol?
Swallowing diamonds/a cutting throat: your teeth when you grin reflecting beams on tombstones

(You can make it dark or fair depending on your point of view)

10.) If you could say one thing to your enemy, what would it be?
Just get lost--fuck off and disappear into the compost. Drop dead, stinking little creep, drop dead!

11.) What do you usually do on Friday nights?
Sometimes we ride in a taxi to the ends of the city, like big stars in the back seat, like skeletons ever so pretty

12.) Are you for world peace?
Red and white carnations can't intoxicate my brain

13.) What do you think about school?
If you ever have to go to school remember how they messed up this old fool

(Let's skirt the issue of discipline)

14.) How do you feel right now?
I wake up every day (but I don't want it that way)

15.) Any closing words?
Everything seems to be up in the air at this time
