Personal Space
Pigfarmer Jr

I spend a long time listening to the radio
Wishing you were still here laying low
Hiding from the creeps on the street below
Who kept walking in your personal space

We were talking for a while, I thought we set the mood
But it meant more to me than it meant for you
I ruined the moment with a word or two
When I said what I said and got egg on my face
That's when you said you need your personal space

It's not easy to know exactly what to say
And I didn't mean to make you run away
I apologize if I made a mistake
If you want I will leave you alone

I want you to know that I care for you
And I thought you cared a little for me, too
I'll do anything that you want me to do
All you gotta do is tell me and I'll know
We all need our personal space

Hey little baby
Do you think that you could maybe
Stop crawling all over me
Your diaper's getting stinky
And you're sucking on your binky
And your bedroom reeks of pee
And all I'm trying to do
Is be alone and write a tune
But you're knocking over my bass
And I'm saying good lord,
quit chewing on my cords
And quit screaming in my face!

You're in my personal space, you're in my personal space!

Hey there kid,
Can't you see I'm kind of busy
But you're asking for a piggyback ride
And I'm trying to clean the floor
You keep asking me for more
Kid you're messing up my stride
And I'm talking on the phone
And all you do is drone
Asking "why why why why why"
Cause I said so dammit!
I don't need to explain it!
Now "bye bye bye bye bye!"

You're in my personal space, you're in my personal space yeah!
You're in my personal space, you're in my personal space alright!
You're in my personal space, you're in my personal space,
You're in my personal space, you're in my personal SPAAAACCCEEE!!!!!

Well my sugar's in the kitchen
And she's making something bitchin'
And I think it's her pear-stuffed shells
And she's getting out her mixer
And I swoop on in to kiss her
She says "baby, what the hell!"
"How many times I gotta say
You better stay out of my way
When I'm busy prepping meals,
Now help me with the dishes
Respect my wishes
Babe, I love you but that's the deal"

You're in my personal space, my personal space!

Hey there pussycat
Did no one teach you how to act?
You're acting kind of rude!
We've had a glass of wine
My wife is looking mighty fine
We're getting in the mood
And we're kissin' and caressin'
And we're rubbin' and undressin'
As we run on up the stairs
But you're pawin' and meowin'
And you're purrin' and scratchin'
Dammit all you do is stare!

You're in my personal space, you're in my personal space, yeah!
You're in my personal space, you're in my personal space, alright!
You're in my personal space, you're in my personal space!
You're in my personal space, my personal SPAAACCEEE!!!!!

Some say space is an illusion
I say space is personal
Some say time is an illusion
I say my time is my own

Some say the world has ten dimensions
I say the world is personal
I can see more than ten dimensions
I can't even count them all

Don't you try to kid me, I'm as real as you
And if you don't believe it then you've lost the plot
We're all we've got

-SOLO-

Don't you try to sell me on your way of life
If it can't contain us then you've lost the plot
We're all we've got

Some say space is an illusion
I say space is personal
Some say time is an illusion
I say my time is my own

Personal Space
by The Cow Exchange

INTRO
They are trying to put a wedge between us
(Wedge!)
They are trying to divide us, like a partial class
It's time to unite. Not like, "unionize" unite.
(HR is listening!)
Whether your personal space character is a tab or a spacey space
Let's agree on one thing: that personal space is 4 columns wide

CHORUS
I don't really care what your personal space is
As long as your personal space is four spaces wide!
(I don't really care how you do that, boyieeee)
I don't really care what your personal space is
As long as your personal space is four spaces wide!
(wah wah wah wah wide)

VERSE
When a curly walks in with an itty bitty brace
And I can't change the typeface, I get…
Stumped. Is it opened, or closing?
I'm coping, I'm scrolling to check the float's scoping
Oh man. I noticed it's Notepad I loaded, so this code ain't folding.
Seems so imposing, archaic, foreboding, corrosive, revolting but…
(hyyayuuuhh)

B SECTION
That's when I check the whitespace, man
Nested expressions don't stand a chance and
You save me the debatin', I'm not blocked, but block-aided
Even in plaintext, mmm, saved by your four spaces, oohhh

(CHORUS)

C SECTION
Whether you press tab or auto-indent
Or hit the bar four times, know the intent is that
YOU'RE MAKIN' FOUR SPACES
Whether you press tab or auto-indent
Or hit the bar four times, know the intent is that
YOU'RE MAKIN' FOUR SPACES

VERSE
Somebody once told me their world got a helloing
But they didn't use a single indent, then I
Closed their mouth, said "this isn't code golf"
And I tried to do my best to correct it
I said stop, when you collaborate, listen
Lessen the friction in question
When you're up to bat, leave room to swing a cat
Add 4 columns in the right direction

D SECTION
If you've got different arrangement,
For displacement, replace it
I've got patience on indentation formations like…
K&R's groovy and Allman's stable but
GNU's got 2 so we drop it like a table!
Oh, please don't take this personal
Just virtual space, in multiples of four

Personal Space
by Lily Plus Martin

They bought up all the land
Underneath Australia and New Zealand
But they can’t get far enough from The Eschaton

I hope I live to see the day
When the planet burns
Beneath the white hot glare
Of my rocket boosters
Brighter than the fading sun

The universe will make
A lovely little living room
Orion is the only friend I need

I was the only one
To make it on his ship undetected
Will he see more
As he manifests his destiny

A man claims his space
Stakes his claim to space
As I squeeze into this tight place
An alien invader

Hey, you can’t forget me
I’m breathing this air too
You are no friend but I still need you

Oh what a wonder
A galaxy of my own
It wraps its starry arms around my home

I’ll never forget
It’s liberty I breathe
To fill my lungs with freedom
Fulfills my every need

Hey, you can’t forget me
I’m breathing this air too
You are no friend but I still need you

PERSONAL SPACE!
by gizo

I just can't think with all this noise going on
all of the phone calls and the vocal chum
it’s like I’m living on a human farm
PERSONAL SPACE! PERSONAL SPACE!

I relocated your entire workplace
and you responded with a slap in my face
is it any wonder that I’m feeling debased?
PERSONAL SPACE! PERSONAL SPACE

four walls and a fucking door
four walls and a fucking door
four walls and a fucking door
that’s all I’m asking for
PERSONAL SPACE! PERSONAL SPACE!


you fail to see the actual depth of my genius
mistake integrity of action as weakness
the indicator of my value to business is
PERSONAL SPACE!

Balance Lost

Stuck down here
In this cubicle for days
No transmissions, no face-to-face
Send me home
Packed in like sardines
Can't move, I need personal space

I know you'll give me a personal touch
And steal my troubles in the dark
I never needed anything this much
She knows how to grab me by the heart

When I look up (the sky's full)
And stare into the deep
Those distant (points of)
Light belong to me

Miles and miles
Cities spread across the land
When did this world disappear?
If I climb
On those faraway hills
I still see that chimney from here

I know you'll give me a personal touch
And steal my troubles in the dark
I never needed anything this much
You know how to grab me by the heart

When I look up (the sky's full)
And stare into the deep
Those distant (points of)
Light belong to me

Personal Space * Hot Pink Halo

*****

Like a meteor shower I took my name
From a place in the past where I'd never been
Until a few years ago when we packed up our lives
Blasted through the atmosphere, drew a new horizon

Once upon a time they swapped famine for gold
Sailed to a sunburned country, so new and so old
I wonder what they'd think if they knew I'd returned
Like a boomerang spinning half way around the world

When dark falls
I head outside
Look up, look around at those points of light
That help me feel more grounded in this far away emerald place

(Personal space, personal space)

I'm a constellation made from many
Stars on many different planes
That collapse themselves to build infinite
Collaged picture portraits of me

Your reading of my story rests on the
Patterns made inside my frame
And the more we learn the more we learn
There's so much more to know

When dark falls
I head outside
Look up, look around at those points of light
That help me feel more grounded in this far away emerald place

(Personal space, personal space, personal space, personal space)

I recognise the shapes up there
From etchings that were made when I
Lived underneath this marble ball
Below a very different sky
Where the Southern Cross shines
Strong and bright beneath
The Centaur's watchful eye
And the ghost of the Oak
Glows faintly in their wake

When dark falls
I head outside
Look up, look around at those points of light
That help me feel more grounded in this far away emerald place

(Personal space, personal space, personal space, personal space)

When dark falls
I head outside
Look up, look around at those points of light
That help me feel more grounded in this far away emerald place

Personal Space
Evil Grin

Your gonna take this, personally
But I don’t care because you’re wrong
This is my space, personally
Just fucking leave, I want you gone

This is for your personal safety
But mostly for my sanity

Just leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

Can’t you see that I’m, slaving away
Taking naps and writing songs
Keeps me from going, batshit crazy
These aren’t your droids, just move along


You’d better leave here voluntarily
Just back away quite carefully

Just leave me alone
Leave me alone
Leave me alone

This doesn’t mean that I don’t love you
It’s just the way I am
It’s because I care that I warn you
For once, please give a damn

Personal Space
The Magnetic Letters

Welcome to my personal space
You're breathing all your germs in my face
It's like you're working for a virus
And he's threatening to fire you
If you don't recruit a hundred by next week

I'm delirious now, so let me be
If I get round to it next week, well maybe then we can see.
But in the meantime...

I got some questions 'bout Louie the Fly
They keep killing him but he keeps coming back
He's huffing all that fly spray time and time and again
And he can't seem to get enough of that

Why can't I find any jeans that won't fade?

Cough cough cough cough cough cough communicated
But it never seemed to make any more sense than before

Taking back my personal space
I used to want them all just to get off my case
Don't misunderstand me, it's not even that demanding
And there's nobody here cracking the whip

It's rubbing off like a chemical dye
When I'm scrubbing my hands under the tap
He was the CEO, but when he came back from the toilet
His hands they were dry and his fingernails black

Louie the Fly never ever seems to die
And he's still trying to sell us all insecticide
I think his interest in conflicted or he's just become addicted
To the very thing that's meant to be killing him

Why can't I find any jeans that won't fade? Tell me

Here's some slither:

I used to stumble like a drunk
alone and lonely with the head of a skunk
a wasted wasteland of a man, I didn’t
understand, I kept my head in the sand
I stroll through these years with a glow
but I don’t know how I got here, no
I’ve lived my life longer with you
than without you, yea what about that?

I can’t believe you let me in,
Don’t know where you stop and I begin
It’s almost too much to face
But I’ll live forever in your personal space

I couldn’t be a richer man, huh
Than the one I have become.
I swim through the life I want to live
These things that money can’t give
My life is amply peppered with the things I like
with the thoughts I write, the songs I write
all jostling for attention and did I ever mention
that this is all my invention?

I can’t believe you let me in,
Don’t know where you stop and I begin
It’s almost too much to face
But I’ll live forever in your personal space

Personal Space by Leppakron

Since I've been living under ground
A creepy alliance I have found
I blue tooth enabled a spider race
To help me create some personal space
I hope my trust is not misplaced
When I put my faith in the spider race

There's to many commuters in this place
Aint no room for personal space
I really could use some elbow room
You better step back before my head goes boom
As spiders drop down from the ceiling
they send the subway crowd a reeling


Buskers being trampled as they're heading for the door
Tripping over homeless people sleeping on the floor
The spiders are amassing as if readying for war
Soon it will be empty like the way it was before
I blue tooth enabled a spider race
To help me create some personal space
I blue tooth enabled a spider race
To help me create some personal space

Ready to run
At the sound of the gun
We jockey for place
By keeping the pace

Falling behind
But I pay no mind
I’m leading the race
For personal space

The crowd will claim I never even tried
As if it could be theirs to decide

It’s over and done
But I’ve already won
In the race for personal space

Personal Space
by Berkeley Social Scene

Sitting in a chair by the rail
Enjoying a beautiful day
Showing up six hours early
Just to hear the band/man play

I've got a need for personal space
Take a step back, get out of my face
Your creeping greed is a disgrace
So don't encroach on my personal space

Already drunk and you're smoking
Talking loudly on your phone
Don't you see the band is performing?
In this crowd, do you think you're alone?!

I've got a need for personal space
Take a step back, get out of my face
Your creeping greed is a disgrace
So don't encroach on my personal space

I just want to enjoy the show
Drink and smoke and have a good time
Just let the music play
And stay on your side of the line

I've got a need for personal space
Take a step back, get out of my face
Your creeping greed is a disgrace
So don't encroach on my personal space
