„And I'll be on the sidelines,
With my hands tied,
Watching the show.“

—  Aimee Mann

"Red Vines"
Song lyrics, Bachelor No. 2 or, the Last Remains of the Dodo (2000)
Kontext: They're all still on their honeymoon,
Just read the dialogue balloon.
Everyone loves you —
Why should they not?
And I'm the only one who knows
That Disneyland's about to close.
I don't suppose you'd give it a shot
Knowing all that you've gotAre cigarettes and Red Vines.
Just close your eyes, 'cause, baby —
You never do know.
And I'll be on the sidelines,
With my hands tied,
Watching the show.

„What you know, you don't want to know
You're with stupid now.“

—  Aimee Mann

"You're With Stupid Now"
Song lyrics, I'm with Stupid (1995)
Kontext: Though you pay for the hands they're shaking
The speeches and the mistakes they're making
As they struggle with the undertaking
Of simple thought What you want, you don't know
You're with stupid now
What you know, you don't want to know
You're with stupid now.

„I thought my life would be different somehow
I thought my life would be better by now
But it's not, and I don't know where to turn“

Song lyrics, Magnolia: Music from the Motion Picture (1999)

There's a cure.
And you have finally found it.

Will shrink you 'til you're underground

But it's not going to stop.
It's not going to stop.
It's not going to stop
'Til you wise up.

"That's Just What You Are" · Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ArXL7uEQsEg
Song lyrics, I'm with Stupid (1995)
Kontext: In our endeavor we are never seeing eye to eye;
No guts to sever so forever may we wave goodbye.
And you're always telling me that it's my turn to move,
When I wonder what could make the needle jump the groove.
I won't fall for the oldest trick in the book,
So don't sit there and think you're off of the hook.
By saying there is no use changing 'causeThat's just what you are.
That's just what you are.

„I don't know how to break the news, but
It's pretty clear you'll be asked to choose between
What you lack and what you excuse“

—  Aimee Mann

"You're With Stupid Now" · 2008 performance https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SjwfNAYdBVQ
Song lyrics, I'm with Stupid (1995)
Kontext: I don't know how to break the news, but
It's pretty clear you'll be asked to choose between
What you lack and what you excuse
In this tug of war
You can't say that they didn't warn you
Though you'd rather that they just ignore you
Cause your devices are not working for you anymore What you want, you don't know
You're with stupid now

Shake his hand and he'll twist your arm.

„Now that I've met you,
Would you object to
Never seeing each other again?“

—  Aimee Mann

"Deathly"
Song lyrics, Magnolia: Music from the Motion Picture (1999)
Kontext: Now that I've met you,
Would you object to
Never seeing each other again?
'Cause I can't afford to
Climb aboard you.
No one's got that much ego to spend.So don't work your stuff,
Because I've got troubles enough.
No, don't pick on me
When one act of kindness could be
Deathly,
Deathly,
Definitely.

„Come on and save me…
Why don't you save me?
If you could save me,
From the ranks of the freaks,

Except the freaks,
Who suspect they could never love anyone,
Except the freaks,
Who could never love anyone.“

—  Aimee Mann

"Save Me"

Who suspect they could never love anyone,
Except the freaks,
Who suspect they could never love anyone,
Except the freaks,
Who could never love anyone.

„When you’re a charmer
you hate yourself
a victim of sideshow hypnosis
like everyone else.“

—  Aimee Mann

"Charmer"
Song lyrics, Charmer (2012)

feel like they’re frauds When you’re a charmer
you hate yourself
a victim of sideshow hypnosis
like everyone else.

„Oh, for the sake of momentum
I've allowed my fears to get larger than life.“

—  Aimee Mann

"Momentum"
Song lyrics, Magnolia: Music from the Motion Picture (1999)
Kontext: Oh, for the sake of momentum
I've allowed my fears to get larger than life.
And it's brought me to my current agendum
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive.And I know life is getting shorter,
I can't bring myself to set the scene.
Even when it's approaching torture,
I've got my routine.

I could never even tell
what were facts in your artful rearranging“

I could never even tell
what were facts in your artful rearranging But I came back for more
and you laughed in my face and you rubbed it in

and I run
when the gun
drops the dove again

„When you’re a charmer
people respond
they can’t see the hidden agenda
you got going on“
