the faint; hypnotised.
i steal the notes from other bands
i fill their shoes with wet cement
i make you think of certain things
and when you talk, the things you’ll say
i’m pretty sure of what you want
i bet you want the same as me
you want to think of something smart
something someone would repeat
but i’m giving up on all that fuss
i’m gonna tell you how it is
then, when you get your turn to talk
i hope your microphone is off
and the critics go, “whoa, yeah, yeah”
they’ll go, “whoa, yeah, shotgun”
but, for now, just watch the screen
let me control the things you think
you’d like to think you could resist
but you’re being hypnotized by this
think of the clock you thought up
how it’s wagging back & forth
how you’re hypnotized by us
are you studying my pores?
when my hand snaps, you’ll wake up
to your daily concerns
i’m counting backwards in your head
you’re letting me do all the work
you’re under my thumb, yeah, yeah
you’re under my thumb, yeah
how bout that, boys?
jerusalem - hooded eagle (1972)
one of my top favorite songs ever! listen or regret it; it’s your call.
reblogging myself because this song rules my face off every damn time.
davy jones — love me for a day
davy jones, 1971love me for a day & let tomorrow
though the time that we have now, we only borrow
love me for a day & let tomorrow find a way
to keep us near forever & a day
in all its cheesy glory, i love the fuck out of this song. his delivery of the chorus chokes me up everytime.
r.i.p. davy jones, aka the little british one.
