little songs
pill-popping strangers
downloading hacks,
destroy the old guard
disobey the checks.
thank god the breath of life
has come to make us right, right, right.

use any method.
break any law.
ignore the feelings.
just make it raw.

we justify our acts
when we provoke a laugh, laugh, laugh.

time is swallowing
all these little songs we sing.

we justify…

time is…

use any method.
break any law.
ignore the feelings.
just make it raw.
talk to our bodies.
say what you will.
give out home numbers.
aren’t we a pill?
hoo hoo

    General Commentummm... I liked the song "We Go Together" a whole lot better. River did the same tune with different lyrics.

    General CommentI love this song. Probably the most underrated Album 5 demo, maybe even Weezer demo ever. This has a very Blue-esque feel to it, and it's just a great song.

    General CommentIs he talking about us in this song... "downloading hacks"

    time is swallowing
    all these little songs we sing.

    I remeber him not likeing people getting a hold of all of this...
    use any method.
    break any law.
    ignore the feelings.
    just make it raw.
    ....I'm not sure....

    General CommentLine 4 should be 'just pay the cheques'.

    This sounds like Rivers singing about the relationship between his song writing process and the fans and critics (downloading hacks) who listen to his songs.
