now it's on

i'm not one to post song lyrics, but every time this grandaddy song comes on, i find myself really liking what it's saying. and it rolled up on my mp3 player yesterday during my final journey to the coop pickup.

it appeals to the tortured hermit in me. i suppose it's fitting that it was one of the songs playing while i was birthing the baby. oliver's anthem for finally escaping the womb and kicking the fetal habit.

back in spring of 2006, jason lytle played an instore performance at good records. dear journal, i don't know if i ever told you this, but i was the one swollen to the gills with child and perched on the edge of the stage trying not to pass out from the heat that was so pervasive and stifling that i began to panic that my water might have broken. i was totally in the way and tim delaughter had to step over me to go from the office to the stage. but it was crowded and i wasn't about to give up my seat and i dare any one of you to ask a pregnant lady to do so. regardless, we ended up leaving after about an hour which was meant to be as there was a cop trying to write brian's ford focus a ticket for being in a parking space past the city's magic hour for that particular parking space. he let brian off for being obviously stupid.


Now that the 'K' is in place
Where the 'C' used to be
It seems that I'm ceasing to be
In the season of the old me

I wouldn't trade my place
I got no reason to be
Weathered and withering
Like in the season of the old me

Bust the lock off the front door
Once you're outside you won't want to hide anymore
Light the light on the front porch
Once it's on you'll never want to turn it off anymore

And now it's on, now it's on

Now that the lake's in place
Where the dead sea used to be
It seems that I'm ceasing to be
In the season of the old me

I wouldn't trade my place
I got no reason to be
Weathered and withering
Like in the season of the old me

Bust the lock off the front door
Once you're outside you won't want to hide anymore
Light the light on the front porch
Once it's on you'll never want to turn it off anymore

And now it's on, and now it's on
And now it's on, now it's on
Now it's on, now it's on
