1.2.3.4*
you're beautiful
girl i wish that
you could see
so stay the same
as you have
always been
cause you're wonderful
or live in a lie
if it makes you happy
do what you like
if you want
you can ask me....

what i know
is i never knew
nothing
so i know that
i need to learn
where to go?
oh woe, woe, woe, woe

floating, flying
hoping you could see
an awful thing
that you wish that
you was me
cause you're wonderful
laugh all your life if it makes you happy
you do what you like
if you want you can ask me...

what i know
is
i never knew nothing
so i know that
i need to learn
where to go?
woe, woe, woe, woe, woe

    General CommentTrue, it is great.

    My guess for the title is name of some strong drug - like love :) This song has feeling of being written seriously high.

    General CommentNot sure of the meaning, but I always thought this would make a great Cure song. It's like the best song Robert Smith never wrote

    MemoryI don't know why, but I can just listen to this song over and over again. It's stunning.

    I heard of this band for the first time in 2014 - when they were at the Austin Psych Fest. I saw them and they were cool.

    I bought 'Take It from the Man' on vinyl from the tent where they all hung out. When I got home to Oakland, CA, and played it on my home stereo, the intro to this song knocked me out. It really sent me somewhere. Immediately, I realized I had discovered a fucking goldmine. I been chasing their music ever since.
