"No Life Signed Her" as written by and S. Kannberg S. Malkmus....
Take me down from the ridge where
The summer ends, we'll watch the city
Spread out just like a jet's flame.
I've got a secret for you, I cut your

Angel in two, I left her bleeding
And soaked it with a dry sponge
No life has singed her now
(I can see it fade)

We've got a license to live, it's our only one,
If it expires we float up to the dust haze.
I've got a secret for you, I cut your
Angel in 2, I saw her spinning and dripping
On your new dress.

    General CommentI always liked the "This guy's a fuckin' dick!" part

    But I too hear "No life for gingers now." Always have. SM predicted the holy word of Eric Cartman.

    General CommentI have to agree with chowfun18 on this one. Despite the song title, SM was always random, so it fits with the Pavement aesthetic.

    Lyric CorrectionIt's "No Life Singed Her", "singed" being the past tense of "singe".

    From thefreedictionary.com:
    singe (snj)
    tr.v. singed, singe·ing, sing·es
    1. To burn superficially; scorch.
    2. To burn off the feathers or bristles of (a carcass of a bird or animal) by subjecting briefly to flame. See Synonyms at burn1.
    3. To burn the ends of (hair, for example).
    4. To burn the nap from (cloth) in manufacturing.
    n.
    A slight or surface burn; a scorch.

    General CommentI think it's closer to "no life for changes now, no life for changing now...etc", listen for it....it's a hell of a lot closer than gingers, which is sounds nothing like.
