Take That Hill: A Song Creation Story in Seven Parts: Part 7

Part 7 of 7:

Then I combined my word ladder brainstorms in crazy ways  

Lead Antique Lamp
Frown Pillow   
Inspire Ladder   
Shout Books
Order Baseball Glove/Mit 
Fly Trees   
Impose Vacuum Cleaner   
Politic Coffee Cup  
Command Globe   
Fail or Win Notebook  

I stared at these phrases and began mumble singing to the song again and looping it relentlessly.  I settled on these phrases that actually landed in the song.

verse 1: 

We play politics over coffee cups  
Commanding globes of dominoes  
Ordering that glove to fit  
Climbing ladders with our parlor tricks 

It didn't make tons of sense but who says everything's gotta make tons of sense.

and this my friends is a small taste of how this particular song was created and the creation process is almost never exactly the same from song to song.  I think that is why I love it so much.
