silentbob Goodbye Forever

take your wings outside, you can't fly in here.
besides, a purple sky is better soaring for you my angel.
you're angel, you little devil.
as for me i'll stay inside i'll be just fine and i'll watch from the window.

cannot categorize the nature of this sickness.
a miracle that you're alive, stuck to the roof of my mouth with a staple.
remember last april when we saw u.s. maple?
somehow the singer showed the fireside exactly how i feel.

and we say goodbye and go underground, or up towards the sky
up in smoke burnt down to size.
at least we're still friends, at least we're still alive

take your wings outside, no use for them in here.
bad luck to open inside, work like umbrellas, like a broken mirror.
it's getting clearer, the end is closer than ever before
and you'll want nothing more
when your head hits the floor and you're lost in the darkness
and we say goodbye and go underground, or up towards the sky
up in smoke burnt down to size.
at least we're still friends, at least we're still alive

and we say goodbye and go underground, or up towards the sky
up in smoke burnt down to size.
at least we're still friends, at least we're still alive

silentbob Cooking Wine

sorry im late, i was out spoiling my liver, i couldn't wait..

and i cant see straight but the two of you look awfully pretty..
and i couldn't wait, been awake for far too long today...
and is it strong enough, to burn away the cooking wine?
and im just tired enough,
if i closed my eyes ill sleep for days ill sleep for days...

silentbob You've Got So Far To Go

Soon ends our stay here and it's been fun.
So tonight I'll raise my glass to us
'cause we've talked so much I think we filled this ashtray twice,
and I'm pretty sure we emptied every bottle in the place, so
Let's walk home, let's be afraid.
I wanna grab you by the arms and kiss you so hard.
Let's do it right under the streetlight.
I want it now, somehow I forgot how.

Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go.
Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go.

I heard everybody's voice cut out when you spoke.
And I watched all the lights go dim when your eyes opened.
Well I can't believe you showed up, what do I do now?
It's last call, time to go.
But before we say goodnight....

Let's walk home, let's be afraid.
I wanna grab you by the arms and kiss you so hard.
Let's do it right under the streetlight.
I want it now, somehow I forgot how.

Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go.
Way to go, way to go
Forgot you've got so far to go.
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go.
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go.
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go.
Forgot you've got so far, you've got so far to go.

silentbob Alkaline Trio - Maybe I'll Catch Fire
AsianMan records


This may come as a surprise, considering certain facts about this band (average age of their fans, their punk roots hell, even what they look like), but Alkaline Trio is a classic pop band. Maybe I'll Catch Fire, their second album, is packed with songs much more in the tradition of bands like the Replacements and Green Day (perhaps they're a smashing combo of the two!) than modern-day, lifeless pop-punk. Set aside the fact that you've heard a million albums made up of guitar-bass-drums-vocals, and take a second to remember that all your favorite records are made up of guitar-bass-drums-vocals. Obvious points of reference are bands like Jawbreaker and Smoking Popes (whose Mike Felumlee recently joined Alkaline Trio on drums) bands whose love of the song was never overshadowed by blaring guitars. There are even a couple of semi-crooners on Maybe I'll Catch Fire, courtesy of bassist Dan Adriano, who sings on three of the album's ten songs. "You've Got So Far To Go" brings to mind Elvis Costello and (here's an obscure but apt comparison) late 80's British also-rans Bradford. It's a nice complement to singer Matt Skiba's more forceful material, especially the tuneful and blazing album-opener "Keep 'Em Coming." Maybe I'll Catch Fire succeeds where so many recent punk-influenced records fail for one basic reason that bands so often forget: it's got great songs. To assume that a record or a band can't be great because they're not re-inventing the wheel denies the fact that the wheel is pretty fucking good invention.

silentbob Radio

Shaking like a dog shittin' razorblades,
waking up next to nothing after dreaming of you and me
I'm waking up all alone, waking up so relieved
while you're taking your time with apologies,
I'm making my plans for revenge.
Red eyes on orange horizons
If Columbus was wrong I'd drive straight off the edge.
I'd drive straight off the edge.

Taking your own life with boredom,
I'm taking my own life with wine -
it helps you to rule out the sorrow,
it helps me to empty my mind.
Making the most of a bad time
I'm smoking the brains from my head
Leaving the coal calling the kettle black and orange and red
This kettle is seeing red.

I've got a big fat fuckin' bone to pick with you my darling.
In case you haven't heard I'm sick and tired of trying.
I wish you would take my radio to bathe with you,
plugged in and ready to fall.

silentbob if love can be expressed for something other than another person, and have it be the same kind...
then that is what i'm in for the duration of when Maybe I'll Catch Fire begins, and for about 10 minutes after it's over, and of course every time i think about listening to it.
I'm in love with this cd.
for me cds go so far beyond material possessions.
they are so fucking sentimental

the friend of peter shots were fired, now there is a hole in the head of this wounded liar 001118

Teddybear These guys are great. And damn you bobby for reciting all the lyrics. Now i have nothing to say. Except that Alkaline Trio is great 010405
...
alkalinepixie i saw them two nites in a row this week. mm. im a big trio geek. we chicago kids kno how to rock out. 010405
...
Alk3 can suck my ass I dont know if this will make you mad, or if you care, or if...anything...
But it makes me fucking mad....it made me mad when I was listening to Chesire Cat and then a few years later i buy enema of the state, and like it none the less and then people like my sister who listen to nsynch start singing whats my age again....
Well Im sure you all know that "alk3" as they are now called (it makes me want to kill, we cant say the alkaline trio, we have to call them alk3), but anyways...they are touring with blink-182, or blink as you might call them?
and they have a comercial coming on mtv....
and maybe im just an elitist, which i am....i cant help it...i love my music...its all i have...
but how are you going to feel when you see a girl wearing a nsync t shirt listening to the radio singing crawl?
010424
...
alkalinepixie i am elitist too. it has been upsetting me fer awhile .
i still love them . they are still good. but this is when i realize i find more pleasure at smaller shows with smaller bands. this is when the crowd surfers really piss the fuck out of me.
010425
...
The Moon Is Down its not if they have lots of fans and lots of money and the concerts are big...its....I cant stand people liking them because its the cool thing.....and....what am i going to do without my favorite band? 010425
...
silentbob I live in shitty little algona where nothing is ever popular if it isnt black or wearing a cowboy hat. rap and country are the only things people like, except me and my friends.

So i havent heard "Alk3" only alkaline trio... and they will never be popular here...

they have so much more substance than blink182 so if lots of peopel DO like them, at least a lot of them will be appreaciting them because they are fucking good, and not just cuz they are catchy and say "fuck" in one of their songs or something

mulder the trio rock!!!!!

"You're Dead" -off of "From here to infirmary"

what the hell is your name
and cna you explain this mess
it seems you're playing a game
where you only know how to take out the best
cause if assholes could fly
this place would be busier than o'hare
there's proof in the sky
it's as thick as our skulls yet it's thinner than air
i have something to say
if the chip on your shoulder should fall to your chest
get it off right away
cause if you don't then it won't be in peace that you rest
it's just a matter of time
that we all go away to a better place i'm told
it all sounds well and fine
but without you around i feel nothing but cold
and i now have nothing
but your heartbeat in my head
and a photograph of my travelling friend
and i became nothing when i found out you were dead -- when i
found out i'd never see you again
and all the time they took talking in circles
to get them off the hook would take miracle workers
we're nowhere near prepared there's no way of knowing
why don't they just admit they're scared
cause it's already showing

silentbob You came to me like a dream
The kind that always leaves
Just as the best part starts
It ends so abruptly
And leaves you stunned and naked
In your bedroom all alone
It's kinda funny how something so soothing
Gets interrupted by the ring of a telephone

And you broke me like the cigarette
That I busted on the day I quit
But now that i've been drinking
I'm out of smokes and I wish that I had it
Woke up to my daily headache
And the realization that you are gone
Oh my sweet darling happiness
You've been away from me all along

One thing that I've never said-
I'm truly happy in my heart and in my head
A lonely liver suspended in liquid

You came to me like a dream
The kind that always leaves,
Just as the best part starts
It ends so abruptly
And leaves you stunned and naked
In your bedroom all alone
It's kinda funny how something so soothing
Gets interrupted by the ring of a telephone

One thing that I've never said-
I'm truly happy in my heart and in my head
A lonely liver suspended in liquid
It's one thing that I never did was smile
Missing a case - lacking a lid
My heart bleeds for what you never did
You never did
For what you never did
Never did
For what you never did
Never did, never did, never did
You never did, you never did

It's one thing that I've never said-
I'm truly happy in my heart and in my head
A lonely liver suspended in liquid
It's one thing that I never did was smile
Missing a case - lacking a lid
My heart bled for what you never did until now

standard break from birdmad "I'd rather take a drink
And walk down to the lake

silentbob find I'm so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the mississippi river. I hope to see my favorite singer, and shake his hand. I hope the metro is as beautiful as it has been in my dreams. I hope. 020916
