wednesday lyric

charles sent me a lyric for a bad religion song, but i’ve hated bad religion my whole life, so no way. instead i’ll put up a Pinback song, because i opposite-hate them.

“Bloods on Fire”
Summer in Abbadon

Brain to head. What is that for?
Vein to vein. Torn and Sore
Carpet so thick and worn
Blanketed, dark, and warm

Break the bed, Burn the floor
Heat to Head. Twisted. Sore
Accident. Never warned
Can’t explain. Nevermore

Calm yourself
Calm yourself
Bloods on fire
Bloods on fire
It’s not in the spark that’s not in your eye
Like we used to talk
It’s not in the phrase that’s not in the language
That we used to talk
Not in the face, you missed me
It’s not in the science that we didn’t learn
When we used to talk
Sit outside, penitence, just
Just let me know, Please say the words.

I’m alright, what was that sound?
Woke me up, now you’re around
Pick me up, drag me around
Don’t forget to breathe now

Calm yourself
Calm yourself
Bloods on fire
Bloods on fire

We all forgot
We’re all lost in Autumn

It’s not in the dead shocks that dropped underneath us
When we used the car
It’s not in the strings we didn’t pull
to move you around the floor
Where are you now?
Pacing a faceless maw somewhere vague
You’re not outside. You’re not inside. You’re not anymore
Where did you go?
Here’s to the pranks
we never pulled
And never will

Reading those lyrics doesn’t come close to showing how powerful a song this is. I’d recommend taking a listen. Pinback is seriously one of the best bands of all time, and I’d recommend a careful listening to anyone who likes music.

lyricsh…two for one wednesday

so there

Scout Niblett
I Am (2003)
“Your Beat Kicks Back Like Death”

We’re all gonna die
we don’t know when
we don’t know how
and your beat kicks back like death
We’re all gonna die

that is some songwritin right there. scout is pretty kickass.

Not the same song, but cool to see.

Heavy Vegetable
Frisbie (1995)
Song for Wesley

This song’s about a man.
He is like a genius.
He can roar like a lion
He gets down like a Magikist.
Wesley, people can be so cruel.
Don’t let them bring you down.
Don’t let them take advantage.
You’re in complete control
Wesley Willis
If you lay down for this
I’ll claim I’m dead serious

He’s got style
He’s got a special gift
He can see right though
all the musical bullshit
Wesley Willis

Rock over London,
Rock on Chicago
Wesley WIllis
he is whipping on a mule’s ass with a belt

There’s a couple lyrics I’m not sure of…but it’s a kickass song about a genuine American oddball named Wesley WIllis. Draw your own conclusions about Mr. W.

Man, check out this video on the front page… the chorus of the second song they show is “Count on the insane to save the souls of the suckers”. I love that fucking band. If they were a woman I would make sweet love to them for days.
