"We eat the night, we drink the time/Make our dreams come true/And hungry eyes are passing by/On streets we call the zoo." Words to guide you in times of existential questioning? Fuck yeah weve all been there. Thank you, Scorpions! And good night! But songwriter-producer Mike Daly has really been there. So much so that he compiled a book's worth of heavy metal lyrics that stand as philosophical credos, titled Time Flies When You're in a Coma. Why didn't I think of that? Daly appears at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd., W. Hlywd.; Thurs., Oct. 30, 7 p.m.; free, book is $13. (310) 659-3110.
Thu., Oct. 30, 7 p.m., 2008
