been round this road so many times
feel like its skin is part of mine
this taste of milk is almost gone
still got no shame, but not for long!
been wrong so many times before
but never quite like this
heard all, in the rain, but the rain all turned to piss

i hope to make it home one day
i doubt that day will come
i know you, know, ________

    General CommentIf you haven't done so, I recommend going to youtube and finding the video for this song (which is just the cover of the album and this song playing along). Someone decided to let anyone leave comments over this song and I think an amazing thing happened: Among all the retarded and hilarious comments made about the teepee, I felt there was something expressed that explains this song, in an abstract but really great way.

    General CommentBeen 'round this road so many times
    Feel like it's skin is part of mine
    This taste of milk is almost gone
    Still got my shame, but not for long
    Been wrong so many times before
    But never quite like this
    And oh
    It rained...
    But the rain all turned to piss

    I hope to make it home one day
    I doubt that day will come
    I know, I know
    Life is in our own

    General CommentI think it's, "Still got my shake, but not for long". Since he is talking about milk in the previous line, it's a play on "milkshake". As in, the milk part is almost gone, but he still has the shake part, but that will go away soon too. shake could be a metaphor for his youthfulness, and milk could represent childhood since little kids are given milk a lot. so he is saying the "taste" or memory of childhood is almost gone, he is still youthful but knows that will end soon too. i think that the song is about getting older and becoming more mature, letting go of the past and embracing the future, etc. it seems to be a major theme in Bromst, especially since the last song is actually called "Get Older".

    Memorythis is what i hear:

    been round this road so many times
    feels like it's skin is part of mine
    this taste of milk is almost gone
    still got my shame, but not for long
    been wrong so many times before
    but never quite like this
    her dog(?), in the rain, but the rain all turned to piss

    (i can't really make out the next part but there are some very quiet lyrics)
    i hope to make her ____ someday
    _______ dead and gone _______

    General Commenti also agree with kwanzai - except i don't think he says "her dog". maybe it's "heard all", or "her doll", or maybe something else entirely. and i think it's "my shape" instead of "no shame". regardless, this is one of those rare songs where i think the ambiguity of the lyrics actually adds to the overall effect, in that the spoken words gradually become subsumed by the gorgeously swirling and sparkling blips and bleeps. one of the most beautiful songs to emerge from "electronic" music, no doubt.
