Forever Bland
Lyrics
Forever Bland
© 2016 Evan Zappa/Stuck With Green

Test audience dictates personality
Type cast in my role just so you can see
Can't all play the lead can't all win the girl
Life is entertainment here in this ole world

(Chorus)
Bland oh bland
Envelop me
Be my cloak tonight
Hope no one will notice me
In this darkened light
Ebb and flow eternity
Dull hourglass of sand
You can have your way with me
I'm forever bland

Destiny is fickle screenwriter's lament
Even Tarantino knows just what he meant
Lots of background players fillers in their seats
Till the final curtain makes us all complete

(Chorus)
Bland oh bland
Envelop me
Be my cloak tonight
Hope no one will notice me
In this darkened light
Ebb and flow eternity
Dull hourglass of Sand
You can have your way with me
I'm forever bland

(instrumental break)

(Chorus)
Bland oh bland
Envelop me
Be my cloak tonight
Hope no one will notice me
In this darkened light
Ebb and flow eternity
Dull hourglass of Sand
You can have your way with me
I'm forever bland
Short Song Description:
Long Song Description:
Playing off the seminal theme of Bob Dylan's classic "Forever Young" and Forever Plaid, the off-Broadway musical revue written by Stuart Ross in New York in 1990 and now performed internationally (this show is a revue of the close-harmony "guy groups" that reached the height of their popularity during the 1950s), Stuck With Green and I collaborated on creation of this very distant, opposite concept of a person who views their own existence as "Forever Bland"....never the hero, never gets the girl, leads a dull, perhaps unconscious existence.
