"Wilt" as written by Thomas Rogers Stevens, Christopher John Thorn, Shannon Hoon, Brad Smith and Glen Graham....
Hair raising shake you're much too late
You should have jumped a couple of cars before
Now if I may I'll walk away
I'm selling Silly Putty door to door
And up on the shelf it seems to help
If I can keep a little bit of disease
As its feeding on me
You see it's bringing me to my knees

As we all wilt
Watching you wilt

Come right away and help me bathe away
The filthy feeling, frigid and cold
Biting my nails to the fairy tales
About the magic monkey's total control

See I got Indian Ken and his fleabag friends
With their buckets full of elephant ears
And he's breathing on me

His breath is bringing me to my knees

As we all wilt
Watching you wilt

Pea green the feeling

    General CommentI love how blind melon's songs can be about the most random things no one would write about. I read on their website that this song was about a busdriver who had really bad breath.

    General CommentDamn what a fine song. It definately deserves more comments over 6 years. Thanks Dina J, I had no idea what the song was about, but loved the lyrics all the same...

    General Commenti like to think of it as more real life than 'random' =)

    i think it goes to show they saw more in the world worth writing about than what everyone writes about

    and even when it's a song about something other people write about..they say it so much better

    god damn, shannon can't be replaced, but the earth needs to be graced with the presence of someone that wonderful in their own way.
    such a beautiful fuckin sooooul
