Liner Notes: 

Week 5 Challenge:

My Oblique Strategy at the website Nancy posted was “toward the insignificant”

I think the idea in my head around this worked better than the execution - open for collaboration and re-writes

Lyrics: 

Insignificant and Illegitimate

V1
you said that
you wanted
a new career
told me that
there were no good
options here

you found a
new job in
a far off state
same as here
but the pay was
second rate

C1
you are
one step closer
toward the
insignificant...
insignificant
things
in my life

V2
you said that
I needed a
little time out
made me think
it would erase
all my doubts

you said you
needed space to
find yourself
you didn’t look
in you looked for
someone else

C2
you are
one move away
from all that’s
illegitimate...
illegitimate
things
in my life

B
you’ve become
insignificant
with all that’s
illegitimate

OUTRO
oh... go claim
another woman
with an
insignificant
certificate

oh... go frame
another woman
with an
illegitimate
certificate

go ...go.... go...
find another
woman...

The combination of insignificant with illegitimate with the relationship disintegration in the lyric opens up possibilities. Hope this one gets the attention it deserves!

You do some interesting things with spacing in your lyrics. It makes me picture pauses or held out notes in unexpected places, so it makes me hear an indie or even experimental vibe. I do like the lyrics though. Original and open to many interpretations.
