The Lyrical Society of Coma Announces a new project that allows music lovers to live their lives as a song lyric. The first meeting starts tonight at Paddy’s Irish Pub on fifth street. Tonight’s living the lyrics will focus on the widely acclaimed song by artist Justin Timberlake— “I Can’t Drink You Away”.
“We are excited to give people the opportunity to not only hear the lyrics but to live their life by the lyrics in a literal way by doing exactly what the singer says to do.” said Ms. Sadie Cracker, Lyrical Society President, part time mom and bitter lover of men. “This gives people the opportunity to really let go and experience the music for what it is.”
Jax Owen of Big Owen Moonshine had lobbied to hold the meeting at his own distillery deep in the heart of Coma’s National Forest but the Society declined stating the liability issues that might occur when people are “drinking each other away” in the middle of a dark forest with no clear direction on how to get out.
Jax disagrees, “There’s nothing more badass than some dark woods, moonshine and a song about being left behind with booze. As long as we have the right mix of women and men everyone will be able to drink away by the end of the night.”
Sadie Cracker said that drinking moonshine would defeat the purpose of literally drinking away to the song.
“The lyrics are ‘I’ve tried Jack, I’ve tried Gin, I’ve tried all of their friends’ and there is no direct reference to moonshine in a dark forest where someone drops you off in a van a drives away leaving you with grain alcohol and some girls in pasties.” says Ms. Cracker. “The whole purpose here is to be literal and true to the lyrics of Justin Timberlake.”
It remains to be seen how the journey to live the lyrics will work out. The Society is hopeful that tonight’s meeting will be the first step toward a literal enjoyment of lyrics that coma citizen’s know and love.
