All the similes from The Mountain Goats album “Tallahassee”
  1. Moon stuttering in the sky like film stuck in a projector
  2. The sun peeks in like a killer through the curtain
  3. [Our spirits] sag like withering flowers
  4. [Our spirits] drop like flies
  5. [Our spirits] lean like towers (on a hillside struggling to stand)
  6. Our conversations are like minefields (no one’s found a safe way through one yet)
  7. The stars blow like milk across the sky
  8. This house like a Louisiana graveyard (where nothing stays buried)
  9. That stuff [Hood River Gin] tastes like medicine
  10. You smoking like a chimney
  11. Your drunken kisses as light as the air
  12. Not everyone can live like millionaires
  13. Our shared paths unraveling behind us like ribbons
  14. Your face like a vision straight out of Holly Hobby
  15. Your love is like a cyclone in a swamp
  16. My love is like a dark cloud full of rain (that’s always right there up above you)
  17. My love is like a powder keg (in the corner of an empty warehouse somewhere just outside of town about to burn down)
  18. My love is like a Cuban plane flying from Havana
  19. Our love is like the border between Greece and Albania (trucks loaded down with weapons crossing over every night)
  20. Those eyes I’ve always loved illuminate this place like a trashcan fire in a prison cell
  21. [Those eyes I’ve always loved illuminate this place] like the searchlights in the parking lots of hell
  22. The night is lovely as a rose
