The Lyrics

Sway...

Sway...

Sway...

Sway, you always make me sway
There are days I feel like sin.
It's taboo
Did you think we might be...kin...?

Vets...
Are reading, and, revving
Using central source...no bliss
None is in store for me
"Not because you feel something"
You don't feel nothing for me
Just because....

Mash...
So so prig...
Try to swallow, swallow her...whole...self..enact
Cause upheaval
Cause me breakin' out of stride
Believe what you flaunt...

"Anybody knows you can conjure"
Anything by the sound of that tune

Boy...
But if I keep my silence
Silencer on you'll talk yourself right out of a job
I watch my soul...
I can sigh adieu, I can sigh, sigh adieu

Sway...

I'm sure that I've been breached
I absorbed your lines...
I'm afraid
And I fear...
I fear...creator of wraiths
And I talk the 'wishin' and I say
You always make me sway
I have never been your kin.

It's taboo...
Chiding, think we might be...kin...?
Vets...
Are reading, and, revving some
Hoping for mist
Caused upheaval
Caused me breakin' out of stride
Believed what you flaunt...

"Anybody knows you can conjure"
Anything by the sound of that tune

Boy...
But if I keep my silence
Silencer on you'll talk yourself right out of a job
I watch my soul...
And I can sigh to you
I can sigh, sigh adieu...

Sway...

Oh, spittle master, I hope you get to feel that way
Oh, cushion sitter, wish you the same, and you're dead
Oh, sitter sitter, I hoped that you would feel that way
Oh, cushion sitter, once again and you're dead.
Oh, blister master, I wish you hadn't felt that way
Oh.... I'm not glad that you came, I said
Oh, blister sitter, I wished you hadn't felt that way
I hurl, won't do the same, oh yes
Oh, sitter sitter, I hoped that you would feel that way
Oh, I dread...but wished
Oh, sitter sitter, I may forgive you one...day
I may forgive thee.

Sway...

This is like tales from the darkside on poetry. Well done, Pat.

Thanks, Guy!

Wonderful job, Pat...pace/cadence & emphasis perfect match with OS - and this is not an easy song to do that to...and the lyrics fit the mysterious and dire mood of the OS also...5's...

Thanks Paul.

5's, and I especially like the "sitter", "master", etc., wordplay in the last stanza!

(SOTM) Bizarre stuff. Reminds me of some of my Madonna parodies. I liked it for that reason. I wish I knew the OS.
Adagio - February 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Yea, Agrimorfee. I think you would like the OS. Thanks for the comment.

(SOTM) Ahh, good ol' fashioned mysteriously-haunting Adagio! Please DON'T reveal the meaning behind this, your poems are so muc hmore enjoyable on the subjective level.
Adagio - February 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Luke!! That's a comment that made my day! :)
Paul Robinson - February 10, 2005 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Pat, as I mentioned above, great job here...and those who can latch onto a copy of this song (it's from Tori Amos's 1999 Double-CD, "To Venus and Back"...from the Studio cuts disk (the other disk is from her live tour that year) should give it a listen along with these lyrics...it really works...and the music and feel of the OS are a perfect fit for these lyrics...
Adagio - February 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks, Paul!! I just wish that there was a midi that did the OS justice, or even an mp3 sample from Amazon.
Paul Robinson - February 10, 2005 - Report this comment
Adagio, It would be hard to picture how someone could do a 'midi' of this one - considering all the intricate and intriguing sounds she managed to put in this one...I still wonder exactly what created those mechanical "wheezing" sounds at the beginning...it's got a very "industrial" sound there....I mean, it could even be foot pedals on some sort of keyboard instrument or amplifier...or a synthesizer...well, you know...I have absolutely no idea...a midi would sound extremely one-dimensional in comparison...
Paul Robinson - February 10, 2005 - Report this comment
OH...should anyone really be interested in hearing the OS I have it and could e-mail an .mp3 file...purely for one-time listening in accordance with copyright rules & regs, of course...drop a note here or contact me throught the Messageboard section...I'm registered under my name there...you need to be able to receive an audio file of somewhere around 5kb for this to happen...
Adagio - February 11, 2005 - Report this comment
No, Paul, a midi of "Suede" would give absolutely no idea of the depth of this OS. It always , to me, sounded like heavy breathing in the beginning, but maybe it is a mechanical "wheeze" of some sort.

If you were one of the boys, I know there'd be a "baiter master" in there somewhere.

Thanks Rick! Darn...I should have thrown one in just to pull a Merry & Pippin....or have they unveiled themselves now? I missed it if they did.

I love Tori Amos's first album, but I don't know this one, alas. Still, I trust you on the pacing, and nothing else matters much when it comes to Adagio parodies, now, does it? To steal someone else's adjective, this is very Adagioesque. (And the rest, as they say, is blistery.)
Phil Alexander - February 20, 2005 - Report this comment
Hmm... pretty much what some of the others have said - no idea about the original at all, and this was kind of poetic, if somewhat unusual.
Adagio - February 20, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanks Spaff!! Loved the comment. :-)

Thanks a lot, Phil!

I'm not sure what revving vets have to do with prig mash, but there seems to be a very creative, theatrical element to this parody.

SOTM - DTKOS and confused... i'll second spaff's assertion that this is very adagioesque.
2nz - February 28, 2005 - Report this comment
Damn once again. DKTOS despite my interest in what you did with the OS based on previous works I've seen from you. Should there be a day when the world runs cold as my veins and the sky dries and the water runs away, I will journey here with the knowledge I have not today. Or maybe I'll just get a hold of the OS and come back some time ;c)

Reads pretty well free-form in my opinion.
Adagio - March 01, 2005 - Report this comment

2nz, that was poetic of you...thanks. By the way, Paul is offering to send copies to judge with.
