Lay your hands on the ocean
Lay your hands on the sea
You touch the heart with words
Oooh you satisfy me
You satisfy me

And then you took in hand
Pricked by poisoned pin
Painted the world one color
Oooh you drew me in
You draw me in

We won't read the end
Ezra Pound

And if you say a prayer
Please say one for me
And if you light a candle, baby
Please light... light one for me

Did he say he loved you?
Will you still get through?
Did he say he loved you?
Will you still be...
Will you still be true?

We won't read the end
[Will you still be true?]
Ezra Pound

You take Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein
Put 'em all together and what do you find?
Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein
You put 'em all together and what do you find?
Alice B. Toklas and Gertrude Stein
Put 'em all together

I said sticks and stones can break my bones
But this world can never hurt me
I said sticks and stones can break my bones
But this world
This world can never hurt me

We won't read the end
World can't never hurt me
[Ezra Pound]

We won't read the end
World can't never hurt me
Oooh yeah, Ezra Pound

Down in the mess where I wanna be
Stop and find the things that you have not found
Oh, you can never found

[We won't read the end]
[Ezra Pound]

I ain't everything

Ezra Pound.

This track is about is about questioning why the sky would choose to be blue if it had the choice to be anything else, “blue also meaning sad,” states frontman Aaron Pauley. “It's about comforting a loved one in a time of loss by telling them you feel blue, too.”

Just listening for the 784,654th time....and it's just perfect in every way. Just incredible. The only reason it was remade was to scoop up a boatload of money from a more modern and accepting audience. But it is a completely different song than the other one that sounds slapped together in a few takes without a thought for the meaning. This song captivates me still, after 50+ years. Takes me to the deep South and the poverty of some who lived thru truly hard times. And the powerful spirit of a poor young girl being abandoned to her future with only a red dress and her wits to keep her alive. She not only stayed alive, she turned her hard beginnings around, became self sufficient, successful and someone with respect for herself. She didn't let the naysayers and judgers stop her. She's the one sitting in the drivers seat at the end. So, not a song about a poor girl, but a song of hope and how you can rise up no matter how far down you started. There is a huge difference between a singer who simply belts out a song that is on a page in front of them, and someone who can convey an entire experience with their voice. Telling not just a story with words, but taking you inside it and making you feel like you are there, with their interpretation.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
