I was listening to this song for the first time in a long time... a relic of my old pre-mom life. I was wondering if anyone else thought this was cool:<br><br><i>Come stumble my mirth beaten worker<br>
I'm Jezmund the family berzerker<br>
I'm bought for the price of a flagon of rice<br>
The wind buffs the cabin<br>
You speak of your life<br>
Or more willingly Locust the Lurker<br><br>
Confuse what you can of the ending<br>
And revise your despise so impending<br>
'Cause I soak on the wrath<br>
That you didn't quite mask<br>
I'm getting it clearly through alternate paths<br>
Or mixed in with the signal you're sending<br><br>
But who can unlearn all the facts that I've learned<br>
As I sat in their chairs and my synapses burned<br>
And the torture of chalk dust collects on my tongue<br>
Thoughts follow my vision and dance in the sun<br>
All my vasoconstrictors they come slowly undone<br>
Can't this wait till I'm old<br>
Can't I live while I'm young?<br><br>
But no peace for Jezmund tonight<br>
I plug the distress tube up tight<br>
And watch what I say as it flutters away<br>
And all this emotion is kept harmless at bay<br>
Not to educate somebody's fright</i><br><br>
These are the lyrics to a Phish song called Chalkdust Torture. Thoughts?

<div class="smallfont" style="margin-bottom:2px;">Quote:</div>
<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">Can't this wait till I'm old<br>
Can't I live while I'm young?</td>
</tr></table></div>

I don't know if any of them were homeschooled. I do know that Trey is really super educated (as far as college is concerned). I wonder if maybe they homeschool their kids? Funny to think about these wonderful musicians as our homeschooling allies!

I heard Pink Floyd's The Wall out in town yesterday (this is only strange because I live in a part of Italy where not many people speak English).
