music & lyrics

This is a survey floating around in which you must answer the questions using song lyrics. I cut out a couple of the questions because I could not, for the life of me, think of a suitable lyric for them. Anyway...

Who are you?

She's a sad tomato/she's a real woman-child/she's her own invention. ("Crush with Eyeliner", REM)

What do you look like?

She's colorblind, tired eyes. ("Not Too Soon", Throwing Muses)

What is your secret?

And when my hand touches myself/I can finally rest my head/and when they say take from His body/I think I'll take from mine instead. ("Icicle", Tori Amos)

What can you do?

I could make a career of being blue/I could dress in black and read Camus/smoke clove cigarettes and drink vermouth/like I was 17/that would be a scream. ("I Don't Want to Get Over You", Magnetic Fields)

What is love?

The book of love is long and boring/no one can lift the damn thing/it's full of facts and figures/and instructions for dancing/but I love it when you read to me/and you can read me anything. ("The Book of Love", Magnetic Fields)

What is friendship?

God only knows what I'd be without you. ("God Only Knows", The Beach Boys)

Are you strong?

I will survive/oh as long as I know how to love I know I'm still alive. ("I Will Survive", Gloria Gaynor)

What are you afraid of?

Kinko, Kinko, the kid-loving clown/if the kids would just love me back I'd never wear a frown/Kinko's in his kinko car/pockets full of change/lots of dirty pictures and sticky candy canes. ("Kinko the Clown", Barnes & Barnes)

What would you tell the one who loves you?

I went out to the forest and caught a hundred thousand fireflies/as they ricochet around the room/they remind me of your starry eyes. ("100,000 Fireflies" by Magnetic Fields)

What do you want to do?

There's a world outside/and I know 'cause I've heard talk/in my sweetest dream/I would go out for a walk. ("Not Ready Yet", The Eels)

What do you want to say?

One day the world will be ready for you/and wonder how they didn't see. ("Spunky", The Eels)

What do you want to say to the one you love?

Hate a lot of things/but I love a few things/and you are one of them. ("Ant Farm", The Eels)

How do you feel?

Yesterday was sucking and tomorrow's looking bad. ("Hospital Food" by The Eels)

What would you do if you won a million dollars?

If I had a million dollars/I'd buy [me] a monkey. ("If I Had a Million Dollars", Barenaked Ladies)

What would you like to tell your parents?

I never thought that you'd become the friend I never had. (I'm too embarrassed to cite the source; if you know where they came from, then you can't say a word, dammit!)
