This song is about finding something in your life from which you may derive some happiness and/or joy.

I always imagine a young "co-ed" in the 1960s at Princeton gazing at a paisley in a cloth which hangs in a hippie house. She's the girl with the goal, the rule!

When she is drunk
She thinks that she can write like Dylan
And she dreams of a Paris France
With Anarchy
She never quite lived in

Her first boyfriend turned Buddhist….
The one after that
He turned gay
And although she’s still glad
Well, the last man she had…
He turned to stone today…

She’ll probably go back to school
But that’ll be next semester
Feelin’ kinda lost just now
Wanna be alone - remain sequestered

But see, she has a goal
See, she has a rule
She’s looking for
She’s searching for
The most beautiful
The most beautiful tattoo

Not to be stymied
By Man’s great Search For Meaning
She leaves no Skin unexamined
For her particular style of gleaning

Her best friend from grade school
Just got married
Second best...
Just got an MBA…(no way!)
And although she’s still glad…
Well the last friend she had...
She turned to ice today

She’ll probably go off somewhere but that’ll be later on
Feelin’ kinda lost just now
Like something she did was
Wrong…so wrong…no, no not wrong…not wrong…

But see, she has a goal
See, she has a rule
She’s looking for
She’s searching for
The most beautiful
The most beautiful tattoo

She’s looking for
She’s searching for
The most beautiful
The most beautiful tattoo

She’s looking for
She’s searching for
The most beautiful
The most beautiful tattoo
