oh no she didn't

Tori has a new box set - A Piano: The Collection coming out September 26. And that makes me excited.


I was browing Perez and came upon a new Tori song, Not David Bowie. It rocks my face off, so you might want to listen to it - so your face, too, can get rocked off. The song is about her old guitar player, Steve Caton - who she has played with on three albums. She also poked a little with these lyrics from Jackie's Strength ("but virgins always get backstage, no matter what they've got to say") - it was rumored he would get girls back stage to meet Tori so they could meet her - and would sleep with them in return. They stopped playing together after her Plugged Tour and haven't said why they had a falling out, oh well.

Vultures in my garden
Figures that I know them
And it is what it is

You were good once
Now you're filled with bitterness
And it is what it is

I cannot forget that he can't forget
or that some friends just change like the seasons
Take me back to the fact that you're still blaming
but I am not the reason you are not David Bowie

Now you want to steal the thoughts
that I haven't even thought
and it is what it is

How 'bout your soulmate pact with the Devil
and needs a date with the surgeon
and it is what it is

I cannot forget that he can't forget
or that some friends just change like the seasons
Take me back to the fact that you're still blaming
but I am not the reason you are not David Bowie

You forgot to value
what all of us have done for you
and it is what it is

You swore you were concious
not a champagne spiritualist
and it is what it is

I cannot forget that he can't forget
or that some friends just change like the seasons
Take me back to the fact that you're still blaming
but I am not the reason you are not David Bowie

You know in the past month, i've grown to despise the phrases "it is what it is" and "it was what it was". I've used them so much in the past and many times over this past summer, because it makes experiences generic. Void of meaning. "Not a big deal...it was what it was." Well, maybe to the other person it was more than what it was on the surface. You know?

And I hope you're wearing your beautiful face next time i see you, since apparently it got rocked off! ;)

i think that 'it is what it is' may be from time after time of trying to work on the friendship - but you keep being betrayed.

sometimes, things are what they are. even though we don't want them to be.
