"Piano" as written by and Palumbo/beck....
Three times alone this week
I was suppose to be a rock star.
"I only beat you when I'm drunk,
You're only pretty when you're crying."
We are suppose to be the ones to set the air afire.
Three times alone this week
I was made into a liar.

Whether (or not) I found the gold
I never told.
Richer: I
Brilliant white.
I.

I wear shoes that move men from desert to riches.
Show me what you've got
And scratch it because it itches.
Call me Chameleon
And extinguish my fire.
Three times alone this week
I was suppose to be a liar.

Maybe not.
Why the stare?
Would I lie about that which I am scared?
What did I say to you?
Step into
A pot of gold,
Rejoice in fire
That which soon burns gold.
What did I say to you?

I can't deny
The throat, the love, sincerity,
I can't deny it
"I've got to keep my P.M.A."

    General CommentThis is definately the best song I have ever heard in my 18 years of existance. I command you to buy the Glassjaw CD. It is good and Daryl Palumbo is a bad ass.

    General CommentThis song is about big bands and being popular. LIttle bit of Bad Brains can be found in the lyrics. This song musically is awesome.
    Most people find it hard to start listening to GlassJAw because they get scared away by the pure emotion and anger in the music. This is usually the song that I can catch people with and begin the GlassJAw movement in them.

    General CommentNO NO NO!
    This song is not about "big bands being popular" at all..
    It's about Daryl being straight edge (sXe).. when he says "I've got to keep my PMA" it means I;ve got to keep my Positive Mental Attitude... meaning he doesnt need drugs or alcohol.. actually, he's against the whole thing, if you noticed the song Pretty Lush means "pretty drunk".. daryl must've had a bad experience with a girl who was involved with alcohol...
