<To the Sour Beat>

-written/recorded in '01
-released in '02 (Uninhabitable)

Onomatopoeia:
in linguistics, sound-imitative words that develop out of a phonetic similarity to combinations of nonverbal sounds (ku-ku, “cuckoo”; bum-bum, “boom-boom”; a devitsa—khi-khi-khi! da kha-kha-kha! “And the girl goes ‘Hee, hee, hee!’ and ‘Ha, ha, ha!’ “). Onomatopoeia is used in poetry to create an image based on sound... :from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979)



"Sum a rough crux done something sux ...(other voices:"summer rough")
I know I don't believe in a problem ...("I have known")
deceiving me,,
{I} defeat myself... Help me get my chin up
You've seen me when I was down
Drop/Drivel,,
Too Much on my mind,,
The devil dust is driving tonight
and I wish you were someone making it right
there wasn't no one there to break up the fight again
Help me get my mind off of the friggin girls
I wasn't no one's bitch before
and then I was yours...

Sample: "That feeling went on for years... and painful loneliness became my constant companion"

I'm a fraction of the chemical waste
I'll slow it down to an impossible pace
and if you're wondering what my name was
Just ask around 'cause they won't know
A junkie bum dirt scum fill the walls of his mind
on the freeway of celibacy
To the sour beat pocket of consciousness
I'm quite a sight to see these days
because I'm only strong,, and I'm strong enough!"

...this is a song I've flirted with re-recording (along with 'White Paste Taste') but haven't thought it was totally necessary yet... ...the vocal layering is mostly because it's written on-the-spot/first takes... 10-4

I've always loved that layered bit at the start of 'to the sour beat' - I think it totally makes the song... it's nice to know what the words are finally. and the story behind that answering machine message was way more intense than I imagined it would be!

thanks for sharing all of this emil, it's awfully kind of you.

Turns out you were a victim of the National Homosexual Conspiracy and not an agent of it, all along.

And like someone mentioned earlier, Golden Tomb is one of your best songs on Uninhabitable. Drainpipe is also one of my favorites.
