Random Lyrics by One of My Top 5 Favorite Bands Ever!!

I had this song on my mp3 player forever, and I would randomly hum it. I looked up they lyrics, and interpretations, and I discovered the Epic Awesome.


Forewarned: If you ask me if I wrote this, I refuse to answer. Clearly, I didn't. :P


Weak and Powerless by A Perfect Circle


"Tilling my own grave to keep me level

Jam another dragon down the hole

Digging to the rhythm and the echo of a solitary siren

One that pushes me along and leaves me so

Desperate and ravenous

So weak and powerless

Over you


Someone feed the monkey while I dig in search of China

White as Dracula as I approach the bottom

Desperate and ravenous

So weak and powerless

Over you


Little angel, go away

Come again some other day

Devil has my ear today

I'll never hear a word you say

He promised I would find a little

Solace and some peace of mind

Whatever, just as long as I don't feel so

Desperate and ravenous

So weak and powerless


Desperate and ravenous

So weak and powerless

Over you

Over you"

If you can pronounce correctly every word in this poem, you will be speaking English better than 90% of the native English speakers in the world. After trying the verses, a Frenchman said he'd prefer six months of hard labour to reading six lines aloud. Try them yourself.




Dearest creature in creation,


Study English pronunciation.


I will teach you in my verse


Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.


I will keep you, Suzy, busy,


Make your head with heat grow dizzy.


Tear in eye, your dress will tear.


So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.


Just compare heart, beard, and heard,


Dies and diet, lord and word,


Sword and sward, retain and Britain.


(Mind the latter, how it's written.)


Now I surely will not plague you


With such words as plaque and ague.


But be careful how you speak:


Say break and steak, but bleak and streak;


Cloven, oven, how and low,


Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.


Hear me say, devoid of trickery,


Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,


Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,


Exiles, similes, and reviles;


Scholar, vicar, and cigar,


Solar, mica, war and far;


One, anemone, Balmoral,


Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;


Gertrude, German, wind and mind,


Scene, Melpomene, mankind.


Billet does not rhyme with ballet,


Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.


Blood and flood are not like food,


Nor is mould like should and would.


Viscous, viscount, load and broad,


Toward, to forward, to reward.


And your pronunciation's OK


When you correctly say croquet,


Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,


Friend and fiend, alive and live.


Ivy, privy, famous; clamour


And enamour rhyme with hammer.


River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,


Doll and roll and some and home.


Stranger does not rhyme with anger,


Neither does devour with clangour.


Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,


Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant,


Shoes, goes, does. Now first say finger,


And then singer, ginger, linger,


Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge,


Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.


Query does not rhyme with very,


Nor does fury sound like bury.


Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.


Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.


Though the differences seem little,


We say actual but victual.


Refer does not rhyme with deafer.


Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.


Mint, pint, senate and sedate;


Dull, bull, and George ate late.


Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,


Science, conscience, scientific.


Liberty, library, heave and heaven,


Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.


We say hallowed, but allowed,


People, leopard, towed, but vowed.


Mark the differences, moreover,


Between mover, cover, clover;


Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,


Chalice, but police and lice;


Camel, constable, unstable,


Principle, disciple, label.


Petal, panel, and canal,


Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.


Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,


Senator, spectator, mayor.


Tour, but our and succour, four.


Gas, alas, and Arkansas.


Sea, idea, Korea, area,


Psalm, Maria, but malaria.


Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean.


Doctrine, turpentine, marine.


Compare alien with Italian,


Dandelion and battalion.


Sally with ally, yea, ye,


Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.


Say aver, but ever, fever,


Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.


Heron, granary, canary.


Crevice and device and aerie.


Face, but preface, not efface.


Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.


Large, but target, gin, give, verging,


Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.


Ear, but earn and wear and tear


Do not rhyme with here but ere.


Seven is right, but so is even,


Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,


Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,


Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.


Pronunciation (think of Psyche!)


Is a paling stout and spikey?


Won't it make you lose your wits,


Writing groats and saying grits?


It's a dark abyss or tunnel:


Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale, Islington and Isle of Wight,


Housewife, verdict and indict.


Finally, which rhymes with enough,


Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough?


Hiccough has the sound of cup.
