Musical Monday: Aha


Another Pandora find! I love the dark, driving sensation of this song and the lyrics. It's like Danny Elfman crawled into this song and grinned. I think we all fall into those routines of minutia that mean nothing at all in our lives. Perspective helps, to keep the long view and to know when your focus is tending more toward societal expectation than your own happiness and security. And then you snap.

And since I am currently fighting perspective (tooth and nail) on both my romantic life and my weight loss journey, I like it for that reason as well.
Not that I'm in danger of snapping or killing anyone.
*coughcough*



Aha, by Imogen Heap
La la la la, La la la la, La la la la, La la la
La la la la, La la la la, La la la la la


Eat, Sleep, breathe it,
you're full of the stuff
Go bag it, tie it up tight
Wheat-meat-dairy-free, teetotal, happy clappy
High on life, you should try it, try it, you know
Go on while no one's looking.


A-ha! Gotcha now!
Caught red handed in the biscuit tin!
Cost you to keep me quiet!


Golden boy boots, Pocket pedal stool
Picking sharp smart moves
Plastic, tin can, paper separator
Busy bee wave, wave save the planet flag
But sneaky in suburbia


A-ha! Candid Camera
Hook, line and sinker
For the four-wheel drive
Cost you to keep me quiet!
Keep me quiet!
(Keep me quiet!)


Nicest, sweetest,
upmost in everything
So charming, very charming
Well read, can play the fool, no one's ill at ease
and put their deepest swiss bank trust in you
No one saw it coming


Aaaha! Aaaaaaha! Aaaaaaaaaha!
You killed a man
Cost you to keep me quiet!
