Melvins – Civilized Worm Lyrics 6 years ago
I feel it's about touring, constantly being on the road and how going home seems alien.
Referring to someone's "widow" because their significant other is left at home and seen only then.
And how they have to change their habits and get right in the last few days of the tour to re-learn how to behave.

Built to Spill – Randy Described Eternity Lyrics 11 years ago
From Antigravity Magazine

http://antigravitymagazine.com/blog/doug-martsch-built-to-spill/


AG: I read somewhere that you had a professor in college who described eternity as this process of whittling down a metal sphere ten times the size of Jupiter to the size of a pea with a single feather, and that you took his words verbatim and wrote “Randy Described Eternity” from Perfect From Now On.
DM: Pretty close. I think it’s a standard metaphor that’s used by Christian religious people to describe eternity. It wasn’t exactly that. I had to change some things from how I remembered because of syllables and meter and stuff, but basically that’s the idea—something giant getting slapped with a feather [until it’s worn down to nothing], you know, just some ridiculous metaphor for how long eternity is.

Built to Spill – Virginia Reel Around the Fountain Lyrics 11 years ago
This is actually a Halo Benders song. Halo Benders were a project with Doug from BTS and Calvin from Beat Happenning and half a dozen other cool bands. He's the founder of K Records, too.

This was the first HB song I ever heard. I was working the summer in Denali National Park in Alaska and I went to the employee cafeteria for lunch, while I was in line i heard this song playing and asked the remarkably cute girl behind the counter who it was. She said Halo Benders and I said it sounded like Doug Martsch from BTS. She said Halo Benders were from Idaho like her and was I from Idaho, I said no but BTS was from Idaho as well. So we introduced each other to new music and made eyes at each other the rest of the season. I never saw her after that summer.

Strangely all the lyrics Calvin sang are excluded in your lyrics here. I guess (probably wrongly) that this is from some live version of BTS doing it without Calvin so there aren't any lyrics from his side?

I always found the charm in Halo Benders to be Doug's yearning, high, plaintive, slow, emotional, almost whining lyrics that were this great canvas for Calvin's deep, more rapid sort of flippant nonsense lyrics.

In the original version Calvin keeps going off about predestination and laizzes-faire with lyrics like "Dance around on the kitchen table, Rub your tummy and show your navel". Brilliant. The self titled HB album isn't as stunning but The Rebel's Not In is great and God Don't Make No Junk is AMAZING. If you like BTS I DEFY you to dislike that album.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Transcending Lyrics 11 years ago
You're missing lyrics...
Here's the whole thing:
You are my god, you are my dog
You kept me close, love never lost
I called you hippie, you said fuck off
Said your brother's a real punk rocker

REFRAIN:
Something gonna happen
Something very soon
Transcending flesh could be a breeze
Sending me oh over the Moon

Friends near death, you gave respect
Sympathetic Intellect
Choices are, for one and all
All we are is, leaves that fall

Round and round inside your head
Smartest fucker I ever met
Vicious fish bit at your toes
Made you lie and numb your soul

REFRAIN

Mule donkey ass you bore the load
Of all creations tortured souls
Choices are, for one and all
All we are is, leaves that fall

You're like no other
I love you, you're my brother (x5)

Water flowing
and I will drink it
i will drink for you
A part of me left
that only you knew
We'll never be understood
We'll never be understood


Hey, gone to stay
Entire lifetime flash before me
In a loving stream
Hey mother may I have lost a child
But she gave birth
To a loving stream

Ooh, never know. When the gods will come and
Take you
To a loving stream

Ooh, heart of gold
The most special things you gave me were
From your loving stream

In a loving stream

Fuck the magazines
Fuck the green machine
See the human being
In a loving stream

Fuck the legal greed
Fuck the nothing scene
See the family
In a loving stream

Blind Melon – Mouthful Of Cavities Lyrics 11 years ago
Actually i'm pretty sure Shannon died from a combined usage of Heroin and cocaine, though the cocaine may have been the ultimate killer.
He was known (even spoke of it in one interview i read0 of the old chinese practice of "chasing the dragon" wherin one smokes cocaine and heroin in succession. Which is what the N.O. coroner as well as people on tour with him all reported he was doing in the days preceding his death

The Magnetic Fields – A Chicken With Its Head Cut Off Lyrics 11 years ago
I think it's almost the opposite. It's about a guy who's been so brutalized by careless loves before hat he doesn't know up from down, but he's trying to convince someone to come home with him and making his predicament well known. So that there's no confusion later on.

Misfits – 20 Eyes Lyrics 12 years ago
And also, i'm sure The Fly and The Eye Monster are appropriate sources of inspiration for the song i have always felt that the song itself is about paranois, about being so overwhelmed with mistrust and a sense of impending doom or treachery that it interferes with having a normal life

just my 2 cents

Misfits – 20 Eyes Lyrics 12 years ago
Ha i like the ADD thing since my attention spa's so..... uhm. what was i saying?

And i know the original post is a year and a half old but technically it would be 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20, 20 vision. The number refers only to what the viewers eye sees based on a standard of 20 feet when you se 20/20 it's refering to the viewers right/left eyes respectively without the standard of 20
so say you can see at 45 feet what others see at 20 with your right eye but can only see the standard chart set at 20 feet away when you're 8 feet away with your left (i used that example cuse that's how my eyes see) your vision would be expressed as 8/45

not that anyone cares

Iron & Wine – Boy with a Coin Lyrics 12 years ago
So what if the coin the boy finds is his love for someone else. Someone (the girl who found the bird) whom he met in a broken relationship.

A victim of somehing horrible who holds no value for herself and her life, inspite of how much the boy loves her and values her

And ultimmately he knows he can't change her, can't fix her, and anyay it's not his fixing to do. And so he gives up.

For awhile at least

And he throws his love ino something greater than himself. Something else he has no control over, and returns to the world (the town) where he see the rest of us as hopless and burning. Hoping that maybe...
one day...

she'll be better

and they can be happy.

and meanwhile they both seperately wonder why a supposedly kind omniscient/omnipotent god would have left things to go awry

Sleater-Kinney – Good Things Lyrics 12 years ago
" a bunch of muff munching lesbian clit lickers"?
Um, Corin is married and has a son from her husband, Janet Is ALSO married to a guy (her bandmate in Quasi). Carrie's the only one who might qualify as a " a muff munching lesbian clit licker". That's why i've always found it strange that they were such lesbian icons. They ARE however AMAZING.
