about

Inspired by the mystical Vanamee character in Frank Norris’ The Octopus.

lyrics

Am I a figment of your
imagination
And are you one of mine?
Am I trying too hard to find
applications
for narrative and rhyme?
I don’t know how to
fix this situation
I’m as confused as I look
And I don’t know how to
wage inner peace
All I know is I’ve got me, myself and I
and a little time
and I don’t know just how much
time, no I don’t know
time, and I don’t know just how much
time, time, time
Am I a subject of your
exasperation
And are you a cause of mine?
Am I trying too hard to find
cooperation
‘tween narrative and rhyme?
I don’t know how to
fix this situation
I’m as confused as I look
And I don’t know how to
wage inner peace
All I know is I’ve got me, myself and I
and a little time
and I don’t know just how much
time, no I don’t know
time, and I don’t know just how much
time, time, time
