I Started Something I Couldn't Finish
The Smiths Lyrics


The lanes were silent
There was nothing, no one, nothing around for miles
I doused our friendly venture
With a hard-faced
Three-word gesture

I started something
I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

I grabbed you by the guilded beams
Uh, that's what tradition means
And I doused another venture
With a gesture
That was absolutely vile

I started something
I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

I grabbed you by the guilded beams
Uh, that's what tradition means
And now eighteen months' hard labor
Seems fair enough

I started something
And I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

I started something
I started something
Typical me, typical me
Typical me, typical me
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

OK Stephen, do that again?

The lanes were silent
There was nothing, no one, nothing around for miles
I doused our friendly venture

Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me

Beercan de Borde

The Scatter and the Revolver:
Thales of Miletus
the awakening of one
before a rusty blade
for, life is a
book western
a place so made
in a final showdown
in a final program
in which we struggle
for margarine prizes
for cracks in the light
or, the Platonic Forms
in crucibles poured
for immortality
in the philosopher's stone
or, a just a little gold
a smile and a kiss
in a reflected mist
to call our molds
a home at last
in the leverage
of the father of maths
-Beercan de Borde



Beercan de Borde

Humanity was this monster.
It died in its sleep.
It runs around headless,
maintaining its keep.
One ring to rule them,
one ring I think.
One ring to find them,
dead in the stink.
They called in the final
program for us.
We all saw the same last thing.
It's linked to warfare, the cradle, and drugs.
The circle is as dead
as the dark lord's ring.
-Antwerk Tar



Beercan de Borde

Vitruvian men,
bisected catherine wheel,
sadistic contra dance,
knights versus aristocracy,
crux of the cradle of civilization,
a psychological cross,
elusive metalsmiths,
the nightmare continues,
clinging to modernity,
dark, like Newton
or, Da Vinci.
-Beercan de Borde



개비정한세상

The lanes were silent
There was nothing, no one, nothing around for miles
I doused our friendly venture
With a hard-faced
Three-word gesture

I started something
I forced you to a zone
And you were clearly
Never meant to go
Hair brushed and parted
Typical me, typical me
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

I grabbed you by the guilded beams
Uh, that's what tradition means
And I doused another venture
With a gesture
That was absolutely vile

I grabbed you by the guilded beams
Uh, that's what tradition means
And now eighteen months' hard labor
Seems fair enough

I started something
I started something
Typical me
I started something
And now I'm not too sure

OK Stephen, do that again?
