well it’s a good thing that I brought a napkin
I knew that this would happen
why does this always happen?
that a day of impulsive fun becomes an evening
of injury, blood and grieving
injury, blood and grieving

make way make way and stand aside
the crowd takes up the cry
he comes he comes
bow down bow down and lower your eyes
before the litter borne by men in fancy uniforms
a chariot from which a siren warns
the regal flashing lights and royal horns
behold the great one comes

you’ve got an electric knife
and I’ve got the need to spite my face
I’ve got a nose, I know what to do

hand me that electric knife
marry me and be my wife
be by my side in the electric parade

help me out I can’t seem to get this window open
never mind now it’s open
I think my hand is broken

Village Voice: They Might Be Giants’ Recent Records Are Their Best Since Their Earliest

The Village Voice: They Might Be Giants' Recent Records Are Their Best

25 years after Flood, I’m pleased and surprised to discover that their latest three could stand as the same. Their recent albums are their best, freshest, most surprising, and most representative since their first few, which seems like an impossibility in our peak-early popular culture.

They Might Be Giants – Impossibly New (Dial-A-Song Week 17)

Dial-A-Song week 17! Impossibly New

Get Glean: Direct | iTunes | Amazon | Spotify | Dial-A-Song Direct

walking through a world so dated
made of bones and wood so ancient
bitter dudes throwing rocks and flipping birds
in this town of rude deceivers
please make way for two believers
they can’t lie and their arms are open wide

the corner phone booth
in it’s youth
loved burning leaves and morning suits
it’s true
the only smokestack coming back is me for you
with love that’s impossibly new

as we gather round the campfire
telling tales of local vampires
don’t get scared of the shadows over there

two for once
we’ll have a ball
run thru the sodium pentathol
it’s true
the only smokestack coming back is me for you
with love that’s impossibly new
impossibly new

Review: They Might Be Giants in Renowned for Sound

They Might Be Giants Glean in Renowned for Sound

…in some ways impossible to summarize or pigeon-hole, but the overriding emotion one is left with after the album’s forty minutes is through is a delirious sort of joy.

begin again begin again
wake up the lazy boyfriends
begin again begin again
we can start at the end

push your hands in your pockets. spaced out and sleepless
put yourself on the docket. get ready to go
got a brand new day planner still snug in the wrapper
and the weekly to-do list as white as the snow
so who’s good for nothing?
after you’ve run through your personal time
you still got some Wite-Out
enough to erase all the previous line

did you say out loud that YOU THINK YOU’VE LOST YOUR EDGE?
man, you never lost your edge
all the lazy boyfriends are preparing to change
they’re standing in the kitchen and preparing to change
all the lazy boyfriends are preparing to change

this American splendor spreads out before you
from basements to attics, garages to sheds
who needs a vacation? who needs a direction?
who needs motivation when you live in your head?
so who’s good for nothing?
so hard to finish
there’s nothing to force
you’ve still got some Wite-Out
and all of the girlfriends’ buyers remorse

did you say out loud that YOU THINK YOU’VE LOST YOUR EDGE?
man, you never lost your edge
all the lazy boyfriends are preparing to change
they’re staring at the ceiling and preparing to change
all the lazy boyfriends are preparing

begin again begin again
wake up the lazy boyfriends
begin again begin again
we can start at the end
