Sonic Youth - The Diamond Sea

Blood crystalized as sand
and now I hope you'll understand
you reflected into his looking glass soul
and now the mirror is your only friend


The lyrics really get you thinking, and I can emotionally connect with them. Washing Machine is one of my favorite albums.

Small Flowers Crack Concrete

death poems for the living gods of america
plastic saxophones bleat, bleed for nothing, nada
cops crashing thru doors infuriated by silver charms
of suburban smoke
at war with patches of red dirt glitter
and bluejean fucking
and protest...

NYC Ghosts and Flowers

can you cover up the one that floats?
can you push back the hours?
i hear yr voice, i speak yr name
among nyc ghosts and flowers
will we meet? to run again?
thru nyc ghosts and flowers

My favorite album at this moment... Texts are great maybe exept "Nevermind"

Beauty Lies in the Eye is the perfect Sonic Youth song.

There's something in the air here
Makes you go insane
Brings you back to me
It's been so long
Alls I have to do is live along
It's coming, coming down over me
Do you want to see the explosions in my eye?
Do you want to see
The reflection of how it used to be
Beauty lies in the eyes of another's dream
Beauty lies lost in another's dream
It's coming, coming down over me
Do you want to see the explosions in my eye?
Do you want to see
The reflection of how it used to be
Hey baby
Hey sweetheart
Hey fox, come here
Hey beautiful
Come here sugar

this she did in public for us to see
she came in here too drunk to do the show
between the trains and cars
broken glass and lost hub-caps, images of a gun
row house row house pass through
let the city rise up to fill the screen
clothes flung out of closets, doorknobs falling off
the guitar guy played real good feedback, and super sounding riffs
with his mild mannered look on, yeah he was truly hip
the girl started out in red patent leather
very I'm in a band with knee pads
we watch her fall over and lay down,
shouting the poetic truths of high school journal keepers
row house row house pass through, let the city rise up
twister, dust buster, hospital bed, I'll see you, see you
see you on the highway
now we're told so merge ideas, of song forms and freedom
miss seafood, miss cheesecake, a couple of miss donuts
the edge of a blade pressed to the throat of your reflected image
poised, yet totally screwed up
yes sir, yes sir, step right up

Hmmmm.......maybe:

My violence is a dream
a real dream
a skinny arm
a crush on living skin
my violence is a sleeping head
nodding out to rising bliss
i left home for experience
carved 'Suk For Honesty' on my chest
my violence is the number
coming out of prayer
find it in the father
find it in a girl

there's a thing in my memory
holding on for dear life
with a feeling of secrets
beating up under my flesh
my tongue is tied
i'm sleeping nights awake
Tom Violence is a dream
coming out of a girl

everybody's talkin bout the stormy weather. what's a man to do now with our weather? it's true.

gotta love it. diamond sea is amazing.

also sweet shine
I hear my angel mountain baby
Pretend to everlast a lady
Marlboro belt buckle baby
They told me you were just crazy

I feel that I could burst
Give me a little drink of your sweet time
Is it the way you think
Or just a pattern of your glory

Is it just some story
You wrote all for me
You think you're my home
Deep down you're just a little whorey
I know you
I'm from you

I don't think SY have that great of lyrics. I like that one song though "You Look So Underfed." I can't remember any of the other lyrics but it was good.

OK, fair enough.

I just realized I contradicted my last post in this thread by identifying that song by the lyrics. Oh well.

She's not in your history books, lost her mind and kept her looks
Down beneath the radar screen, she's lit up like gasoline
Been through a million kicks, looking for the one that sticks
Never would have known it then, I might not see her again.

That or maybe Star Power; something about "Close my eyes & think of you/everything turns black to blue" sits well with me.

Strange, cause I generally prefer Thursdon's lyrics/voice.
