I began with typing in “Give me” as a search term which led me down rabbit holes ending with typing in “silence” midway, trying to find my way out of the dark wood in which I’d ended. Beware Google.
Give me one reason, sister silence, give me directions home, oh sister do you hear? give me the time of day a nightingale sings Silent bays, skies, silent rage and silent lambs must sit on silent hills, searching Google in Thrace Satyr Silenus, do you hear, your drunken nights by Dionysus's side have all led you to make a king turn a daughter's flesh to gold, oh, oh, oh! Give me liberty sits enthroned, untutored, give me love lyrics for dirty ears, Alexa! ask tongueless Philomela, oh sister hear! "inappropriate predictions" don't you think? Google, show me the severed head of Itys unmourned unseen, "I'm feeling lucky," tereu, tereu Non, silento! Basta! Enough! Give me love I don't need the win, just directions home from here to there. Give me Jesus. Please.
