it isn't a new post, its quite old actually, but i only just found it

ingole talks about bad song lyrics.

re: Incubus's Wish You Were Here.
"The sky resembles a back-lit canopy with holes punched in it."

Is it just me, or does that smack of a 12 year old's first English essay using a simile? You know, like the old favourites "He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it" or "Her eyes were like two brown circles with big black dots in the center."

i love this girl. read the whole post here.
