Paper Cup

Here’s my paper cup;
won’t you fill it up?
It should last just long enough for me to drink.

Soon my time is up;
soggy paper cup
falls apart so flimsily and spills my drink.

Pour it all in
My paper cup is waterlogged
but the liquid reached my lips.

Why should I give up,
when my paper cup
gives me drinks, and even sometimes gives me thirst.

Pour it all in.
For all intents and purposes
my old paper cup is all I need.

[lyrics by David Garland]

Paper Cup

"I want to be free of stylistic assumptions, so that as i create music i'm not thinking about traditions, but instead i'm working with the elements of melody, harmony, rhythm, words and sonic color to built a new and true experience" -David Garland
