Name taken from 'Sullen Girl' by Fiona Apple.

"Days like this,
I don't know what to do with myself
All day -- and all night
I wander the halls along the walls and under my breath
I say to myself
I need fuel -- to take flight --

And there's too much going on
But it's calm under the waves, in the blue of my oblivion
Under the waves in the blue of my oblivion

Is that why they call me a sullen girl -- sullen girl?"

"Oh you think you're so jazz, you."

Straighten Up and Fly Right
Your story's fetching but it sounds just like a lie.

Went upstairs to kiss her fellow.
Once Upon A Time...

Well, now,if little by little you stop loving me,
I shall stop loving you, little by little.

-- Pablo Neruda
