song lyrics

This guitar is 25 years old. My dear grandpa gave it to me. Love to play it, and playing it means touching it...of course.

This guitar is 25 years old. My dear grandpa gave it to me. Love to play it, and playing it means touching it…of course.

As I am planning a series of smaller paintings bringing visuals to Songs I feel inspired by I had a closer listen to my all-time favourite Songs.

Jack Johnson has quite a few to offer… and “Symbol in my driveway” is one which got stuck with me. the past few days… 

If it turns into a painting or Collage I will post it here. For now listen to the song and find the lyrics underneath.

Would love to read about your favourite song lyrics, dear reader, if you feel like sharing them in the comments.


“I’ve got a symbol in my driveway

I’ve got a hundred million  dollar friends

I’ve got you a brand new weapon

Lets see how destructive  we can be

I’ve got a brand new set of stencils

I’ve been connecting  all the dots

Got my plans in a zip lock bag

Lets see how unproductive we  can be

I’ve got a light bulb full of anger

And I can switch it on  and off I

n situations it can be so bright

I can’t believe, how pathetic  we can be

I’ve got a perfect set of blueprints

I’m gonna build  somebody else

Might cost a little more than money

But what’s man without  his wealth?

I’ve got a phosphorescent secret

But don’t you tell nobody  else

Next thing you know, the whole world

Will be talking about all the  clues they got

They just ain’t no use, they’ve got us fooled”

Jack Johnson – from the Album “On and On”
