David Lingabee Songs & Songwriting

Song#: 17

Album
Name of Song: What do you eat?

What do you eat?
I eat pictures.
Pictures of my past delight,
Pictures of my pain.

Pictures of sensation,
Of what we need the most,
Sensations oozing endlessly,
And always very close.

Chorus
Pictures pictures everywhere,
A continuing flow and then some.
Created endlessly it seems,
Where do they all come from.
______

I s’pose you’ll say that’s obvious,
Then why does no one say,
The mind is urged to make them all,
And why we always pray.

Can you explain it exactly,
I know it’s very strange,
It’s what makes life the way it is,
And directs how it’s arranged.

Chorus
Pictures pictures everywhere,
A continuing flow and then some.
Created endlessly it seems,
Where do they all come from.
______

Eating pictures for pure delight,
It seems that’s what we do,
For some ungodly reason though,
They’re never quite in view.

Have I got you somewhat wondering,
All those images we urge to eat,
Or replacing with that sexual thrust,
That substitutes the treat.

Chorus
Pictures pictures everywhere,
A continuing flow and then some.
Created endlessly it seems,
Where do they all come from.
