from Accumulation by (smog), loaned to me by mister rumpus

I'll never be a Bowie, I'll never be an Eno
I'll never be a Bowie, I'll never be an Eno
I'll only ever be a Gary Numan

Lou Barlow does a cover of that song on the Live at the Waterfront thingy. he does another Smog song too., dont know what it's called. It's about women wanting to be beaten or something.

is that the song that reckons that if you
"B-B-B-Bruise 'em,
ya'll never lose 'em"

can't remember what its called, its off the Wild Love album.
"Be Hit" or something.

Smog rules.

"Anniversary" off the new album is completely magic.

I also love the Carney by Nick Cave... back when he was truly mad and off his tits, not just a balladeer with a hourses head.

fave lyrics are so many


"It was bigger than me
and I felt like a sick child
dragged by a donkey
through the myrtle "

You could pick any D C Berman lyric and ponder it for hours... a current favourite of mine...

"but I'm afraid I got more in common
with who I was, than who I am becoming"


Also anything by Leonard Cohen

"Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried."

So off his tits, in fact, that he thought he really was a hardened psycho bastard, and did his best to make up scary songs so everyone else would think so too ... surprised the fucker didn't get a tatoo of a skull, that'd be really scary

I do love his words though in general, except for the awful shite that is Murder Ballads ... Idiot Prayer sends shivers up my spine every time

the winner of this is obviously going to be Heart with this gem:

It was a rainy night when he came into sight
Standing by the road
no umbrella
no coat
So I pulled up along side and I offered him a ride
He accepted with a smile so we drove for a while
I didn't ask him his name
this lonely boy in the rain
Fate tell me it's right
is this love at first sight
Please don't make it wrong
just stay for the night

All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will
You want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
I've got loving arms to hold on too

So we found this hotel
it was a place I knew well
We made magic that night. Oh
he did everything right
He brought the woman out of me
so many times
easily
And in the morning when he woke all I let him was a note
I told him 'I am the flower you are the seed'
We walked in the garden we planted a tree
Don't try to find me
please don't you dare
Just live in my memory
you 'll always be there

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I wanna do is make love to you
I've got loving arms to hold on too

Oh
oooh
we made love
Love like strangers
All night long
We made love

Then it happened one day
we came round the same way
You can imagine his surprise when he saw his own eyes
I said 'please
please understand
I'm in love with another man
And what he couldn't give me
was the one little thing you can'

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I want to do is make love to you
Come on
say you will
you want me too

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I want to do is make love to you
Say you will
you want me to

All night long
All night long

All night long
All night long.

there's a crackin in your bathroom
oh I know you heard me call
out a name that I never used for you
till then
out a name that you never used for me
till then

Kurt Wagner

or even

when blood sees blood, of it's own
it smiles to see it's face again

WHEN I SEE YOUR BLUSHES
FROM A COMPLIMENT OF MINE IT TOUCHES
SOMETHING INSIDE I'M GETTING RUSHES
THE ADRENALINE RUSHES
AND I'M FASCINATED
THAT YOU REALLY DON'T KNOW HOW TO TAKE IT
WHEN I LOOK AT YOU THAT WAY YOU FEEL NAKED
AND I'M SO INTO YOU
I'M GETTING RUSHES


Darius-Rushes

Sheer class

what a bunch of poetry-reading losers you all are

I bet you try to impress chicks with this shit and all

check it out, I was shit at maths in school and I couldn't lift a bag of sugar but I've still got alpha male sperm in my gonads because guess what, I know the difference between good lyrics and the instructions on the side of a conditioner bottle
