The Lyrics

This song as you may/may not have guessed is about the movie Mercury Rising. I wrote it in code, see if you can crack it! ;-) I relate to this movie well, as I have autistic-like symptoms from it's spectrum, at least my doctor thinks and says so, and I'm more inclined to listen to him right now. I mean let's face it, it's better than diagnosing myself isn't it? ;-)
I was looking at a puzzle magazine
I came to puzzle number nine nine
I came to the first code I seen
That gave me the puzzle line

Shouldn’t have called the puzzle line
Cause, Kudrow will take my life
At least until Mercury begins to rise

I hear train whistles a blowing
I’m walking the track towards the train
I feel like the danger is a growing
It’s all just the many mysteries in my brain

Shouldn’t have called the puzzle line
Cause, Kudrow will take my life
At least until Mercury begins to rise

(Instrumental break…)

Looks like the danger is finally over
Looks like this story has a happy end
I no longer say Art is a stranger
I now say that Art is my friend

So, Don’t ever call the puzzle line
Cause, Kudrow will take your life
At least until Mercury begins to rise.

Don’t ever call the puzzle line
Cause, Kudrow will take your life
At least now Mercury will never again rise.
"You Are Not Strangers" Let me know what you think! :-) E=VC2 ;-D

Haven't seen this movie, but I know how to break a "code"...get plenty of rest, drink lots of fluids, and eat sensibly. ;D

Had a visit from the uno-bomber I see. . .I'll try to offset it with some 5's, never heard of the movie--but the pacing was good, and it was coherent and well written--I thought this was going to be about temperatures --little repetitive but fun.

Thanks OMR & BAD, The movie "Mercury Rising" stars Bruce Willis and Miko Hughes and should be available at any video store for rental.

Oh, I forgot to mention above, that you can probably download it at the iTunes music store too. Hope this helps! :-)
