You Might Want To Think About Being Direct
06/07/14 - So at Ex-Pat Theatre's 20 hour festival, I had 20 hours to write and perform 10 minutes of punk songs based on the fortune cookie "You may accomplish more by being direct." This is the first one.

Baby your hints are lost on me
(If they really are hints)
Your vague assertions are puzzling
(If they are what you meant)
Hey everything you said went
Way over my head and
You might want to think about being direct

You know a stitch in time saves nine
The shortest distance is a line
Early to rise will make you
Healthy and wise, no thank you
You might want to think about being direct

Thousands of years since humans
Discovered the gift of language
Why is it hard to speak your mind?

What is the subject you avoid?
(When you’re talking at me)
Hey am I only paranoid?
(Or are you out to get me?)
Maybe there’s nothing wrong but
Still gonna write a song called
You might want to think about being direct
