what is he shouting around 3:23...?

I think it's a rebuttal... but at the same time it's not totally hateful or anything. Near the end he says he wishes he was her (which is some kind of flattery...? i dunno!)

(sorry, i butchered a bunch of the lyrics)
----------------------------
Go got some big dreams
Escaped a small life
You were the cutest queen every night
Now you’re on late night
You doing goal(?) rides
And you just left the rest behind
So you did what you knew
A show of all you’ve been through
And now you’re so cool, you think you’re so fine, you’ve got that go for the throat mind
.......
So it’s the long freeze
Nothing but dead eyes
I couldn’t miss them if I tried
Now that you trampled all of the good times
You know I should have seen the signs
You think for all you’ve been through
You wouldn’t be such a brood
And now the bodies are piled so high
You couldn’t hack(?) them if you tried
And I wish I was you, I wish I had what you do,
Cause I’d be so cool, I’d be so fine, I’d have that go for the throat mind
And all the trouble yea all the hard times
No on could touch me in my prime

Thanks for posting your guess on the lyrics though, it was nice to have a sort of guide to go by.

I'm really looking forward to the release of this album.

This might be the same link, sorry if it is- but you have to enter your email to get the download. It's under the Babyface vid.

Yeah, I listened to it on that site (loved it) and gave my email, but I still haven't received anything, and that was this afternoon...did this happen to anyone else? Or did I do something stupid?

here's what i'm hearing, lyrics wise:

Quote:
You think you're so cool
You think you're so fine
You've got the go for the throat eyes
You've got your troubles
All of the hard times
No one could touch you in your prime
Cooked up some big dreams
Escaped a small life
You were the kids' queen every night
Now you're on late night
You're doing goal rides (?)
And you just left the rest behind
So you did what you knew
A show of all you've been through
And now you're so cool
You think you're so fine
You've got that go for the throat mind
You got your trouble
All of the hard times
You know you should have seen the signs
So it's a long face
Nothing but dead eyes
I couldn't miss them if I tried
Now that you've trampled all of the good times
You know I should have seen the signs
You think for all you've been through
You wouldn't be such a brood
And now the bodies are piled so high
You couldn't hide them if you tried
And I wish I was you
I wish I had what you do
Cause I'd be so cool
I'd be so fine
I'd have that go for the throat mind
And all the trouble, yeah, all the hard times
No one could touch me in my prime
And if the gravity should ever bring you down
If we ever meet right back on the ground
Remember... that you're so cool
That you're so fine
Yes, there are few who would deny
I know that somewhere
Deep dark, down inside
You're still filled with that light
You think you're so cool
You think you're so right
You've got those go for the throat eyes
You've got your trouble
All of those hard times
No one could touch you in your prime


pretty sure that when he shouts at 3:23, he's just repeating what he's singing.

Thank you! I am stupid. I just didn't see that happen when I did it the first time, I guess.

Yaaay.

I hope the album comes with a lyrics booklet. I miss the days when bands did that regularly.

Great song. Like this one alot more than Babyface. Thanks for transcribing the lyrics! I can understand alot of them now where I couldn't before.
The one lyric I heard differently than you two is "You wouldn't be such a brood" I heard it as "You wouldn't be such a brute". Could be either though.

^ and "brute" could totally be a reference to brute/beaute (the label rk founded, right?).

It's 4pm here right and I have literally been listening to this song non-stop on my iPod at the library since 10am. I love it!

I love that the tune makes me want to shake my head and smile, yet the lyrics almost make me want to cry because, well, it's so sad and a little bitter. And rather sarcastic as well. Definitely a response to "My Snake Pet" to me. I don't know what happened between Blake and Jenny exactly, but it seems to be pretty nasty. Can't wait for the big RK reunion in ten years' time, though, after they've accused each other of all kind of evils through lyrics and finally work it out.

I don't know if something big went down, it sounds like their relationship turned sour and they're both bitter towards each other. She thinks he's jealous and toxic and he thinks that she's thinks she's the fucking shit.

This song is so much fun to sing. I'll bet it'll sound awesome live.

I was thinking about this last night and you know, if this is a response to 'My Pet Snakes' (durr of course it is) then he responded pretty freaking quickly. I wonder what he thought when he heard her song? (Oh well, thinking too much about this ;p)
