"Jed's Other Poem (Beautiful Ground)" as written by and J Lytle....
Apparently before Jed had left us
He wrote some poems
Wrote them for no one
But I'll guess I'll show them
Here's one of Jed's poems

You said I'd wake up
Dead drunk, alone in the park
I called you a liar
But how right you were
Air conditioned TV land, twenty grand walk to the bank
The shakes from the night before
Staring at the tiki floor
High school, wedding ring keys
Are under the mats
Of all of the houses here
But not the motels
I try to sing in funny like Beck, but it's bringing me down
Lower than ground
Beautiful ground
Beautiful ground

Test tones and failed
Clones and odd parts made you

    General CommentVery cool song. In case you haven't seen it yet, some guy made a killer music video for it on his Apple ][. You can watch it here:

    General Commentthis is the most weird and beautiful song/poem i have ever heard, and its fantastic. Just looking at the lyrics, they're not that great but the music and atmosphere of the song (and the whole album) is brilliant

    also 'broken household appliance/national forest' is awesome too

    General CommentThis is a very pretty song - very sad - and done almost perfectly - has to be one of my all time favorites. the rest of the album had some other good songs but not a patch on this. Is it about failure and diissapointment?

    General CommentA followup to "Jed the humanoid". A robot that gets drunk and dies. The lyrics between the two songs connect pretty well anyway. You can form whatever impressions you want about what this song is supposed to represent beyond the literal meaning.

    General CommentThis song is brilliant! I love the bass line paired with the synth. I love the verse "high school wedding ring........." This whole album is the best album to come along in awhile.

    General Commentquntomytemple - i don't believe jason was making fun of beck? he says 'try to sging it funny LIKE beck'.
    seems to me that's the way he's trying to sing and because he can't it's slowly bringing him down..

    In many interviews grandaddy have made reference to beck and how great he is anyway so i'm positive there's no negativity intended.
