Set in Motion is Song Lyric Thursday

Rob was listening to music while data crunching last evening when the song, Set in Motion, by the Canadian band, Sloan, came on. I may have heard the song before but sometimes lyrics grab a person’s attention more when current circumstances have them finely tuned due to the current events.

So when I heard the opening lines,

“They’re coming out with the movie version of my life

Based on the novel that shouldn’t have been written either”

I knew I had my song lyrics for the week.

The video is live and the song is sandwiched between the closing of one number and the opening of another. And for future reference, I don’t do nude scenes either but I am open to the idea of stunts.

 

oooooooooo

They’re coming out with the movie version of my life
Based on the novel that shouldn’t have been written either

I called them up and asked to meet the director
To see who would play me and he said
We talked about actors but thought instead
“That playing yourself might lend some cred”

All the time I’m trying to halt the production
Apparently one day (long ago) I gave them all my permission

If That’s the case let’s hammer some details
Remember I already sold them once
I don’t do nude scenes or my own stunts
The features a failure on all fronts

Just accept that these things are going to happen
Everything is set in motion
It will happen anyway

And on and on we argued..
After all that the thing was banned
To try and drum up the popular demand
Ask the director where I should stand

Just accept that these things are going to happen
Everything is set in motion
It will happen anyway

Just accept that these things are going to happen
Everything is set in motion
It will happen anyway

Just accept that these things are going to happen
Everything is set in motion
