Forgetters – The Night Accelerates Lyrics 7 years ago
This seems like Blake is singing to his own writing.

John K. Samson – Letter in Icelandic from the Ninette San Lyrics 8 years ago
A few adjustments:

I think Samson uses the form of 'Grettir's' for 'Grettis.'
"Panel of ally boys" should be "Pembina Valley boys"
And 'Betle Home' should be 'Betel Home'

(I put a lot of work into transcribing, only to be beat to the punch! Good show!)

The Weakerthans – Virtute the Cat Explains Her Departure Lyrics 12 years ago
Look closer. It's 'Virtute' in both song titles.

Jimmy Eat World – Carry You Lyrics 12 years ago
The third stanza should read:

It's easy feeling righteous when you're new
All you'll get is what you wanna hear
It hurts because it should
How else am I to make it clear?

End of the sixth:
Your only good is what you're good for

Lucero – That Much Further West Lyrics 12 years ago
This is the best song to open a Lucero show. It sets up both the show and the album. Love it.

Jimmy Eat World – Goodbye Sky Harbor Lyrics 12 years ago
There is 100% ZERO relevance in the length of the song. Jim (the singer/lyricist) himself said that the reason the song is so long is simply because they had extra tape and recording time left. (however, the neat part is that Zach played the whole thing live to tape... it's not looped... but it is sped up to twice speed! There was a half hour of tape left!)

Sorry folks. Some interesting ideas, but it's meaningless. Case closed.

Tom Waits – Tom Traubert's Blues (Four Sheets to the Wind in Copenhagen) Lyrics 12 years ago
I always assumed this song was about drugs... some of the references are related to morphine/IV drugs. I don't deny the significance of the traveling theme, I just think Tom compared the relationship of the two. He usually has multiple layers to every song...

My Morning Jacket – One Big Holiday Lyrics 12 years ago
I think it's about drugs.

Superchunk – Watery Hands Lyrics 12 years ago
There are a few errors in your lyrics that I've noticed:
"Sunken wet" = "soaking wet"
"don't quit your teeth" = "don't grit your teeth"
"Stop Watch and Do It" = "Stop washing me away"

Great song.
