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”
