"Medium" as written by Gavin Koppel, Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Alex Katunich and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
Medium, medium.

Waking up I smell the scent of coffee on the brew,
And I think about the amount of the sweet,
I'd like to have in my cup today.
One for the two lump, three lump, four.
No half of one, no less no more.

Just give me a chance, let me make it mine.
I'd like a medium blend of that piece of pie.
Not too bitter, not too sweet
Medium.
Just enough to ?
Medium.
Not too bitter, not too sweet
Medium.
Just enough to ?
Medium.

Dinner time just rolls around,
And I think I crave a steak but,
I'm not too partial to the meat,
When it's cooked too long and I'm made to wait.

Not too much of the parsony,
And just enough of the spice.
I think I'd enjoy a medium-rare dish with a side of fries.
Not too tender, not too tough
Medium.
Not too little, just enough
Medium.
Not too tender, not too tough
Medium.
Not too little, just enough
Medium.
Medium. Medium. Medium. Medium. Just a medium. Medium.

? and I smell the pits but ?
I could've sworn a ? last week and scrubbed like ?
I like to stink just a little bit,
Just to keep you on your toes yes.
The more I stink the more I think,
That you smell like a rose.

Not too pleasant, not too bad
Medium.
Just enough to hold my ?
Medium.
Not too pleasant, not too bad
Medium.
Just enough to hold my ?
Medium.
Medium. [Repeat: x6]

    General CommentI like this song. It shows
    someones feelings about
    food haha and it too can
    substitute for other things.I like to stink just a little bit,
    just to keep you on your toes yes.
    The more I stink the more I think,
    that you smell like a rose.

    that pretty much sums it up:)

    General CommentI just wanted to clear up what some of the lyrics are, at least what I think they are.

    the part where the first "???" is it goes "Not too bitter not too sweet, just enough to start my beat."

    at the "smell the pits" part I'm not sure what the first part is but the rest goes "......and I smell the pits, but hey it aint that bad. I could've sworn I bathed last week and scrubbed like a good lad. I like to stink just a little bit to keep you on your toes, yes. The more I stink the more I think that you smell like a rose" and then its like "Not too pleasant, not too bad, just enought to hug my dad" I think. anyways, I was just kinda bored so I decided to write this. The song is awesome on of my favorites, of their older stuff at least.

    General CommentThe earlier stuff is definitely crazier. I love Take Me to Your Leader and Trouble in 421. It's a shame they don't play those songs live anymore :(

    General CommentIt's actually "just enough to hurt my dad". He probably smelled from smoking marijuana. One of the probable reasons for smoking marijuana was to anger his dad. Perhaps the divorce of his parents had something to do with him wanting to anger his dad. Maybe not. Oh, and I believe it is "Come Thursday mornin', I smelled the pits, but hey, they aint that bad..." These are some of the more difficult lyrics to decipher. :)

    General CommentMedium. Medium. Medium. Medium. Just a medium. Medium.
    ??? and I smell the pits but ?????.
    I could've sworn a ??? last week and scrubbed like ???.

    i think i have some of the blanks filled

    ??? and I smell the pits but hey it aint that bad
    i could have sworn i bathed last week and scrubbed like a good lad

    i have no idea if the first sentence is right, but im pretty certain about the 2nd one

    General CommentK well just to clear things up the sentence is:

    Come Thursday morning and I smell the pits but hey it aint that bad.

    I could have sworn I'd be less reek if I scrubbed like a good lad.

    I got it off of the website hunglikeyora.net (hence my screen name) its an unofficial incubus website with bios and lyrics and all that good stuff.
