Spoon Tear It Down

You were out walking the park

I was at the owl cafe

When the sirens rang

And no we’re never gonna meet

But I feel you anyway

I was trying to get out of town

You passed in an ambulance

We were in a trance

And now we’re never gonna meet

But I feel you anyway

Yeah, I feel you today

Let them build a wall around us

I don’t care, I’m gonna tear it down

It’s just bricks and ill intentions

They don’t stand a chance

I’ll tear it down

Signals you send

Secrets you would never tell

People you’ve been

People you bend to your will

Darkness comes on

And lingers past the dawn

Tension, it lends

Tensions, tension, tension waiting

Let them build a wall around us

I don’t care, I’m gonna tear it down

It’s just bricks and ill intentions

They don’t stand a chance

I’ll tear it down

Mmm, tear it on down

Mmm

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, I’ll tear it down

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Na, na, na, na, na, I’ll tear it down

You were just getting off work

I was down at the city stacks

When the sky went black

And now we’re never gonna meet

But I feel you anyway

Yeah, I feel you today

Let them build a wall

I don’t care, I’m gonna tear it down

It’s just bricks and ill intentions

They don’t stand a chance

I’ll tear it down

Mmm, tear it on down

Spoon The Delicate Place

I got nothing

You got something

I feel out of place

Looking through your window

Into the delicate place

Reflections stating obvious mating holds

I’ll own up to you if you own up to me

I’ll picture for you if you picture for me

Have you got the answer

Have I yet won the part

Is this just your way of breaking my heart

Everyone denies it but they just to be told

I’ll hold it for you if you hold it for me

I’ll picture for you if you picture for me

The delicate place

The questions it raise

The delicate place

I got nothing

You got something

I feel out of place

Looking through that window

Into the delicate place

I’ll own up to you if you own up to me

I’ll picture for you if you picture for me

The delicate place

The questions it raise

The delicate place yeah

Spoon Who Makes Your Money

Japanese John, his slight face fur

Still just as confused still just as sure

He’s still just as charming, points out the view

As he hands your wage to you

Don’t you break it

Or they’ll take it

Who makes your money

Who thinks they might

Who’s gonna be there to take the fight

Some try to relax

Some try to know

Some try to get there with no place to go

No place to go

Who makes your money

Oh they take it

When all is quiet and on your own

And all your love, there it goes

It’s come to hate

With everything you call

And now your back

Is against the wall

Who makes your money

Spoon 30 Gallon Tank

It’s unelectrical a bad sharing one

It’s on american radio and dedicated c’mon!

So c’mon

Action takes a back seat to abstraction

Works you up and takes out the piss

This action could finally put out in our 30 gallon tank

Going down on the century

Spoon I Could See The Dude

I could see your words hang in the air

But they did not spell out what I thought that I heard

I could see the dude in your next room by himself

So I took one look around walked back out

Now the snot has caked into my pants

It’s a good bet that it will soon turn to crystal form

So take it off and take it off again

As the crackers watch you take it off again

Spoon Anything You Want

If there’s anything you want

Come on back cause it’s all still here

I’ll be in the back room drinking my half of the beer

And if you and me is right

Why’s it the same thing every night

It’s just a matter of time

It’s almost measurable

Imagination ain’t kind on us tonight

You’re at your best you got the guns turned a hundred eighty degrees

And finding out if it adds all up right

We go through all the same lines or sell out to appease

But go to sleep in a bed of lies

I made my own more than once or twice

And now time is my time time is my own

And I feel so alive yet feel so alone

Cause you know you’re the one and that that hasn’t changed

Since you were nineteen and still in school waiting on a light

On the corner by sound exchange

Spoon The Ghost Of You Lingers

If you were here

Would you calm me down?

You settled this part

Feelings I fight (all the strangers in town)

Feeling so bright (would know if you were here)

The feelings I fight (would you ease my mind?)

Yeah (Come on!)

The sleep fled from my eyes

And I, I know that I need some

Give a thought to the one that you know

Or would you calm me down

When the night gets shadowed

We fast

We put on the clinic

If you were here

It felt good to me

(would you calm me down)

Can’t see I’m losing it

Must have set up the scene

(The man asleep knockup)

Put on a clinic

(I see it) But I will need to write

(we settled this part) They’re all alive

Oh, would you ease my mind?

Yeah

(The ghost of you lingers)

Put on a clinic till we hit the wall

(And leaves)

Just like a sailor with his wools beat soft

Come on

I had a light bad noon that could be put back together

My life

So light

Would you settle this part?

If you were here

Would you calm me down?

The ghost of you lingers

And leaves

I always think about it

Oh, would you calm me down?

Spoon Vittorio E.

I took a river and it wouldn’t let go

I want you to stay and I want you to go

I took a river and the river was long and it goes on

I want to be there tonight

I want to get there but it’s just out of sight

I took a river and felt so slight so hold on

So hold on

N goes on

It goes on

I took a river and the river was long

I want you to stay course I want you to go

I took a river and the river was long and goes on

It goes on

Ooh it goes on

It goes on

Spoon Rent I Pay

I been losing sleep

Just nodding sleep

That I wish that I know’d

Mmm and I lost all my tapes

Of back masking peace

Just for asking peace

That I ought to be owed

And that’s the rent I’m paying

Just like my brother would say it

Out amongst the stars and the stones

Every kinda fortune gets old

Every kinda line is gonna come back to me

Just as I go

And that’s the rent I pay

Like my brother say it

That’s the rent I pay

Rent I pay

Like my brother say it

That’s the rent I pay

I been losing sleep

And I’m nodding sleep

That I wish that I know’d

Mmmm and I lost all my tapes

Of back masking peace

Just for asking peace

That I ought’a be owed

And that’s the rent I pay

Like my brother say it

That’s the rent I pay

Rent I pay

Like my brother say

That’s the rent I pay

Everybody knows just where you been going

Everybody knows the faces you been showing

And if that’s your answer no I ain’t your dancer

And if that’s your answer no I ain’t your dancer

Spoon Do I Have To Talk You Into It

Here we go down a long dark road

Same place where we used to go

And the words get stuck on the tip of my tongue

Feeling cut off from everyone, oh

Do I have to talk you into it?

Do we have to make sense of it?

When I’ve known you such a long time

And we never had to act polite

I wanna whisper down the tube

All the words you would never use

Do I have to talk into it?

Jimmy digs in his long dark coat

Comes up with a tender throat

And he hides it away in a Bronson Park

So he can’t get to it after dark

Do I have to talk you into it?

Do we have to make sense of it?

They say I better seal you up in wax

So that you’re never gonna bite me back

And I can feel it when I’m away

I got to get back tomorrow if not today

To try to talk you into it

Oh, I have to talk you into it

Knock knock

When the mood of the era’s gone

Everybody fading me, even my ma

And the words get stuck on the tip of my tongue

Feeling cut off from everyone, oh

Oh, oh, whoa

Do I have to talk you into it?

Do I have to talk you into it?

Well here we go down a long dark road

Been here, man, many times before

I wanna whisper down the tube

All kinda words you would never use

Do I have to talk you into it?
