Extraordinary Machine


Posted on November 24th, 2005, by Steve Hardy in Archives, Uncategorized. No Comments

I certainly haven’t been shopping for any new shoes
And I certainly haven’t been spreading myself around
I still only travel by foot and by foot it’s a slow climb
But I’m good at being uncomfortable so I can’t stop changing all the time

I noticed that my opponent is always on the go
And won’t go slow so as not to focus and I notice
He’ll hitch a ride with any guide as long as they go fast from whence he came
But he’s no good at being uncomfortable so he can’t stop staying exactly the same

If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I’ll make the most of it
I’m an extraordinary machine

Some lyrics from the first track of Fiona Apple’s delicious new (well, kinda new) album Extraordinary Machine.
