"Stomp Box" as written by John Linnell and John Flansburgh....
Stomp box speak my thought
Vent these voices from the dark
Shout Shout Shout Shout
Scream it out
Blast your missive
Tell the wordless message
Little stomp box
Tear it from my heart

Stomp box, voice of fear
Pour the poison in my ear
Kill kill kill kill
Kill me now
Free the demon
Hear the ceaseless screaming
Little stomp box
Tear it from my heart

Stomp box speak my thought
Vent these voices from the dark
Shout Shout Shout Shout
Scream it out
Blast your missive
Tell the wordless message
Little stomp box
Tear it from my heart

Kill kill kill kill
Kill me now
Free the demon
Hear the ceaseless screaming
Little stomp box
Tear it from my heart

    General CommentStomp box is a slang term for a guitar effects pedal, often a distortion pedal. So it sounds to me like it's just a cathartic jam with as much noise as possible. Sometimes the best therapy is just to play music very very loud.

    MemoryI think TMBG wrote this song to try doing "traditional" rock. Not too many of their songs would go well loud. The first time I heard this song, I wanted to stop listening because I wasn't ready for the graphic images that were popping into my head, but something inside me was making me keep the song on repeat. Thank you, They Might Be Giants for bringing addictive, weird, creepy, and sick comedy rock music into my life!
