The people come and lay down on the ground
They want to hear all the beautiful sounds
Of the organ player

But in the crowd is a bitter young man
He can't accept what the other ones can
That the song is greater than him
Spreading vemon in the crowd
Laughing ?high horses? are loud

The player plays ever furiously
He won't be swayed from the right melody
Because he knows its beauty
The bitter man shoots his arrows of flame
He's got to take out the source of his pain
At the cost of righteous thinking

Casting necromancer spells
Summoning demons from hell
The tones rise up
And spill his cup
He can't defeat this tune

Casting necromancer spells
Summoning demons from hell
Another verse and the melodies rise
A perfect tune doesn't need a disguise
Cause there is no fighting
And nature says what is high and is low
Father Time will reveal what is show
And the bitter man is falling

The tones rise up
And spill his cup
He can't defeat this tune

Another verse and the melodies rise
A perfect tune doesn't need a disguise
Cause there is no fighting
And nature says what is high and is low
Father Time will reveal what is show
And the bitter man is falling
On his knees

    General CommentI can't believe I'm the first one to comment on this song. This is probably one of my favorite weezer songs. Its probably the most poetic song Rivers ever wrote. Really cool. Listen to it!!

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song! It's more mellow than the most of their other songs, and it's just great. Definitely listen to it if you haven't already!

    General CommentThis song has such a great melody. Also, it was very creative of Rivers to write in 3rd person. Very, very artistic. Love this song.

    General CommentIt's surely not their best, but to see a weezer song with a story line is refreshing...even though this song has been scrapped, I think it's a step up from maladroit.

    General CommentThe melody and lyrics of this song are fantastic - it's really refreshing to hear something a bit different, but still with weezerish undertones to it. The lyrics are beautiful - more poetic than anything else I've heard of Rivers'. And Rivers' vocals are just perfect.

    General Comment"The Organ Player" is obviously about masturbation. "The player plays ever furiously"? "Spreading venom on the crowd"? Come on.
