Empty the Shelf

September 30, 2006

Now as a matter of pride
indulge yourself
your every mood
No feast days or fast days
or days of abstinence intrude

Consider for a minute
who you are
what you’d like to change
never mind the scars
Bury the past
Empty the shelf
Decide it’s time
to reinvent yourself
Like Liz before Betty
she after Sean
Suddenly you’re missing
then you’re reborn
And I, my lord, may I say nothing?

– Extract from DJ Culture / Pet Shop Boys

    Love it! (the sentiment I see anyway).
    PMA and all that.

    BTW – you seem to have a bit of a knack for finding fitting lyrics for certain situations. That good memory of yours seems like a great device for it!
