Lyricomancy


What is lyricomancy?  Well, it's just like bibliomancy, only with song lyrics instead of a book.  You've heard of bibliomancy.  No?  It's very likely the most common method of divination.  You take a book--lots of people use the Bible, although people do use other books as well (one character in Wilkie Collins' The Moonstone uses Robinson Crusoe)--and open it at random. Close your eyes and put your finger down on the page.  Read what you're pointing to.  And there it is--the answer to your question, thought for the day, message from heaven, whatever.  It's easy and takes no special equipment or training.  (Well, it helps to be able to read, but I'm assuming you already can).

I went to the library in an effort to find something amusing to say about bibliomancy.  I wasn't very successful, but I did have some fun with numerology.  At any rate, as a service to members I have made Peter Gabriel Lyricomancy easy and convenient.  Have a bothersome question, want to know what's in store for you, or just looking for some inspiration from Peter? Just click somewhere on the link below to be shown a random quote from one of PG's songs. And if you find a typo, go ahead and laugh. (I personally got a chuckle out of "for every job, do many men."  Glad I caught that one before I uploaded!) Then let me know so I can fix it.

It's unfortunate, but prudence dictates that I point out the obvious.  This page is meant to be fun--there is very little that the Church takes seriously.  Neither the Church of Peter Gabriel nor Peter himself can be held responsible if you do something stupid becuase you think PG's lyrics told you to.  Use your head when interpreting lyricomancy results. Sit up straight.  And don't cross your eyes like that, they'll stay that way.
