well I just got put down
in the ashes of an asphalt town
black debris, the burned out trees
blows out over the sunken seas

somewhere far along
singing a regular song
dead machines, frozen dreams
they don't bother me at all

I'm loose inside my skin
and all the walls are wearin' thin
shoot out on the traffic lights
on your way to the dead of night

somewhere far along
singing a regular song
frozen dreams, dead machines
they don't notice me at all

[harmonica solo]

troubles find their own
you're better off alone
nobody knows the coupon clones
the stowaway's in the captians clothes

somewhere far along
singing a regular song
dead machines, frozen dreams
they don't bother me at all

    General CommentBeck sang this live on an HFS radio show, which I think was called "Modern Rock Live" in the spring or summer of '96. He had first sung "Hollow Log". When he played "Regular Song", it was funny how at the end of the song he kept changing the chords and ended with a series of single notes. Right after he began talking he said something like "I couldn't figure out a way to end that song". It's got a nice melody (acoustic only), and the Beck sound. It sounds like a song that should have been on One Foot In the Grave.
