Album Board / the semantics- powerbill
« on: June 24, 2005, 07:04:03 AM »
for those who don't know, which i'm sure most of you do, ben was in a little band in nashville named the semantics. in '93, they released an album called powerbill. i just wanted to know if anyone has it, has heard it, or if it's available to download anywhere. here's the tracklisting of the album, for those who care-

Sticks and Stones   
Future for You
Coming Up Roses   
Jenny Won't Play Fair
Average American    
Don't Say Goodbye   
Sky Is Falling   
Black and Blue
Johnny Come Lately   
Life Goes On   
Glasses and Braces

anyway, if anyone has any info about how it is or whatever, i'd love to hear it.

**also, the drummer of the band is named zak starkey. that could explain who zak is in zak and sara. i could be completely wrong, but it's uncanny that the names are spelt the same.

Transcription / Bastard Lyrics

Bastard-

The old bastard left his ties and his suit
A brown box, mothballs, and bowling shoes
In his opinion so you don't have to choose
Pretty soon you'll be an old bastard too

You get smaller while the world gets big
The more you know you know you don't know shit
The whiz man'll never feel you like the whiz kid did

So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything

Close your eyes close your ears young man
You've seen and heard all an old man can
Spread the facts on the floor like a fan
Throw away the ones that make you feel bad

Kids today are getting old too fast
I can't wait to grow up so they can kiss some ass
And give nostalgia about the last ten years before the last ten years have passed

So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything

Tears laying on a hand on a chest
The old bastard had a pair of dime arrest
He got smaller and the world got big
The more he knew he knew he didn't know shit
The whiz man never fit him like a whiz kid did

So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything
Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?
It's okay if you don't know everything

Transcription / Trusted Lyrics

Trusted-

It's funny I know
But I'm disappointed in you
I thought you could read my mind

But I came home early
And saw that a drawer been open
Looks like you've been reading my diary instead

How does it feel to realize?
You're all alone behind your eyes

It seems to me if you can't trust
You can't be trusted

Caught in a dream
Picking up astral signals
Some of them psychic, you better watch what you think

How does it be that everybody else's dreams are throwing
Clues that you better watch what you dream

You wanna see the other side
What's going on behind the eyes

Still it seems if you can't trust
You can't be trusted

Ohhh...no no no
No no no...
No no no...

Didn't you know we're as close as we can be?

The sun's coming up
She's pulling all the blankets over
Curled in a ball
Like she's hiding from me and...
That's when I know...
She's not really pissed when she wakes up...
For terrible things I did to her in her dreams...

You wanna see the other side...
What's going on behind the eyes...

Still it seems if you can't trust...
You can't be trusted.

Ohhh...no no no.
No no no...
No no no...

Didn't you know we're as close as we can be?
Hello...?

Right? Wrong?

Album Board / SFS Lyrics--
« on: March 20, 2005, 03:22:02 PM »
Eh, first off, I'm Matt, I'm new but not really, considering I visit the forums every other second, I just never have anything to say. Anyway, I too got the SFS leak, because I just couldn't wait, and it's outrageous to say the least. I was just wondering if anyone wrote up lyrics to the songs that aren't up yet. I already wrote out lyrics for b*stard, Jesusland, Trusted, and Sentimental Guy. I'll post them in a bit. Anyone else wanna take a stab at any others?

*Also, what're everyone's favorite lyrics on the album so far?
For me, in Sentimental Guy:
"There's a moment in my mind I scribbled and erased a thousand times
Like a letter never written or said
This conversation's with the dead...I used to be a sentimental guy
Now I'm haunted by the left unsaid
I never felt so much could change"

It's so f*cking grand.
