  • Oh man! I was trying to think of a title, and "Anchorless" just popped into my head. Awesome song.

  • I missed a few lines at the end there, but it's mostly right.

    It's "The Origin of Love" from Hedwig and the Angry Inch, by the way.

  • When the Earth was still flat,
    And clouds made of fire,
    And mountains stretched up to the sky,
    Sometimes higher.

    Folks roamed the Earth
    Like big rollin' kegs
    They had two sets of arms
    They had two sets of legs
    They had two faces peerin'
    Out of one giant head
    So they could look all around them
    As they talked while they read.

    And they never
    Knew nothin' of Love.
    It was before
    The origin of love.

    Well there were three sexes then
    And they looked like two men rolled up back to back;
    They were the children of the Sun.
    And the children of the Earth
    Were similar in shape and girth
    Two girls rolled up in one.
    And the children of the Moon
    Was like a fork shoved on a spoon
    They were par Sun part Earth part daughter part son.

    And the Gods grew quite scared
    Of our strength and defiance
    And Thor said "I'm gonna kill 'em all with my hammer,
    Like I killed the giants,"
    But Zeus said, "No,
    You better let me,
    Use my lightning like scissors,
    Like I cut the legs of the whales,
    And dinasaurs into lizards."
    Well he let out a laugh,
    Said "I'll cut them right down the middle,
    Gonna cut 'em right up in half!"

    And storm clouds gathered above!
    Like great balls of fire...
    And then fire
    Shot down from the sky
    Like shining blades of the night.
    And it ripped, right through the flesh
    Of the children of the Sun and the Moon and the Earth
    And some Indian God sowed the wound up to a hole,
    And spun it round to better remind us of the price we pay.
    And Osiris, and the Gods of the Nile,
    Gathered up a big hurricane,
    To blow us all away
    A sky of wind and rain!
    A sea of tidal waves!
    And if we don't behave
    We'll be walkin' 'round on one foot
    And lookin' through one eye..

    The last time I saw you
    We'd just split in two.
    You was lookin' me,
    I was lookin' at you.
    You had a face so familiar
    I could not recognize.
    You had blood on your face,
    I had blood in my eyes.
    And I could tell by your expression
    That the pain down in your soul was the same,
    As the one down in mine.
    That's the pain,
    That cuts a straight line down through the heart,
    And we called it love.
    We called it love.

    It was a cold dark evening,
    Such a long time ago.
    We put our arms around each other,
    Tried to shove ourselves back together,
    We was making love,
    We was makin love.

    That's the Origin of Love
    (Oh yeah!)
    That's the Origin of Love.

  • FOTL shirts are baggy, scratchy, and terrible. These are the shirts that schools/buisnesses/organizations use when they want a t-shirt printed.

    AA shirts are slim, super soft, and excellent. These are what hip, in the know, cool cats use when they want a t-shirt printed.

    There is really no contest. AA is awesome -- FOTL is not awesome.
