about

Originally an improvisation by Clark, Nathan, and Jesse, it was trimmed and reorganized, but keeps its original flow and structure. The lyrics underwent just few grammatical tweaks. You are hearing the song as it was spontaneously created, with no preconception, over two years ago.

lyrics

"Here, drink," is all she said, "and, roll me up a smoke of words revealed what happened, never spoken until now."
My heart was aching, another day without you.
Oh my God, I've lost my way around. Hate to tell you that you came inside my heart too late to die.
Oh, what love sings from the west window?
You don't know!

(Nathan to Clark:)
Please continue, please continue, you're unbelievable! You'd better keep on singing, 'cause, you know, you're unbelievable. Clark, you'd better take it from me, you're unbelievable.

(After much encouragement, Clark continues:)
Still, it's coming down to this. With everything I had to have her.
You would never have the sense. You would never have the instinct to move when you wanted to hide from view, now it will die with you.

I see those pieces that I hide inside.
I see your skies, you don't believe in the truth might bring you back to the time (after time) that you were at top.
You've got a ways to go.
You've got to pay to be.
But you can see your life today.
I never said that you'd be anything that's worthy; anything that's worth my time.
You can't see what you were to me because you don't believe in me.

(Still it's coming down to this, with everything I had to have her. You would never have the sense. You would never have the instinct to move when you wanted to hide from view, yeah.)
("Here, drink," is all she said, "and, roll me up a smoke of words revealed what happened, never spoken until now.")
(It's unbelievable.)

She said, "Daddy we'll be O.K. anyway; you'll find I don't care if you want to be who you are, don't you ever come attempt me."
You are something inside my mind.
You are nothing if you can't sign the papers that you said you'd write, all the way there, that kept you up a night.
Some say "let it be", do any of us seem worthy? I said too much, but now I know you're mine.
Don't you ever come to me with that look upon your cheek.
Don't you know, I'll be here everyday, waiting on you to come and say you broke my heart and left, beyond the line of dread, and I realize your dead, upon the things you say to me.

No, never! I'll never let you go! No, I'll never let you go!

Let's Manufacture Static Birmingham, Alabama

The Jimblejorp once proclaimed that a breed of giants would emerge from clouds and descend upon instruments in the form of man. This band is not those descendants. Furthermore, the Jimblejorp is only rumored to exist, much less tell prophecies, even much less tell them accurately. If you see the Jimblejorp, report him to this band for a reward and the authorities for benefit of humanity. ... more
