The words fly around the room Swoop over my head Why should I listen? It’s all Sound and Fury and I know better anyway The voice goes right through me I just can’t concentrate This time is not a good time But they always have something to say And I open my mouth And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out And I open my mouth And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out I’ve every right to shout A lot to shout about But nothing ever comes out Damn, I hate this life Forgot why I chose it Too late now I guess I’ll have to face it Pedantic, pretentious, oblivious It’s so hard, so hard to make it obvious And why should I bother When you overwhelm me with you confidence And I open my mouth And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out And I open my mouth And I watch whole lotta nothing tumble out I’ve every right to shout A lot to shout about But nothing ever comes out With a deft line in humour Laugh I couldn’t start You try my patience You try a lot I won’t submit to anger Must maintain calm precision With your charm and expensive accent I’m spiked on the end of your derision And you can’t even make the simplest of decisions But they open their mouths And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out And they open their mouths And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out They have every right Every right to let it all out We will make our noise Stand our ground Disassociate with any cause Exclude all random elements Be safe in our sterile void But I don’t care I don’t care Run my fingers through my hair Look at my watch, play with my pen And when I’m finished I’ll do it all again But they open their mouths And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out And they open their mouths And I watch a whole lotta nothing tumble out They have every right Every right to shout it about (and they like to shout) Must keep away Must not be dragged in Hold onto my own personality And keep my thoughts within They think they can justify Every word, Every thought, Every lie. Imagine their surprise When they discover That so can I And I open my mouth And all these words come tumbling out And I open my mouth And the words come tumbling out Just look at my mouth And the words come out Oh watch them come out

Oh son, Look what you’ve done Didn’t anyone tell you the truth? You can’t fight fate With the move of your hand So for you it’s all too late Because of your crime And as you can’t escape what you desire I’ll take you down in brimstone and fire But my last words for you Are you are the biggest fool For not appreciating all you will lose Say goodbye to your wife Say goodbye to your kids Say goodbye to your life And all that you ever did Say goodbye to the boys Say goodbye to the club Say goodbye to your parents And all you’ve ever loved Didn’t you learn your lesson Did you think you could beat me Didn’t you think it strange That I should give your this opportunity? This is the long goodbye In case you couldn’t tell I’m not keeping you in America Oh fuck it! I’m taking you straight down to Hell...

When I get up it’s half past two Not in the morning, the afternoon Why should I get up There’s nothing to do I’ve got no work Or nowhere to go If do go out There’s no money to spend Don’t talk to anyone I’ve lost touch with my friends There seems to be no end I don’t remember how it got this way I don’t even know how I make it through the day There’s no escape You know it’s true There’s nothing else when I’ve nothing to do If I’m lucky I might go into town Some window shopping But that gets me down In the summer, I don’t go very far Sit on the bench and watch all the cars In the night, I don’t go to bed I write these stupid songs That don’t make much sense I don’t make much sense I don’t remember how it got this way I don’t even know how I make it through the day There’s no escape You know it’s true There’s nothing else when I’ve nothing to do Nothing to do Nowhere to go No-one to meet No-one to phone No reason to sleep No reason to wake Nothing to give Nothing to take No reason to laugh No reason to cry No reason to live No reason to die I must not give up hope Give me one reason why I must not give up hope Give me one reason why I must not give up hope Give me one reason why I must not give up hope Give me one reason why Give me one reason why Just one reason why

about

This is a compilation of rough edits, alternate versions, new mixes, demos, things that never were finished or possible early versions of things that did end up being used. The idea is to illustrate the recording process and to peek behind the curtain.

Enjoy!
