Hi, I took awhile yesterday transcribing the lyrics to the songs off of Rather Ripped. I'm going to put them up on SongMeanings in a bit, but there are certain parts of lyrics that I can't quite make out. Here they are, if anyone can help with the blank spots, it would be appreciated. By the way, if this is violating any rules, say so, and I will delete this right away.

Sonic Youth - Reena
[Kim]
You keep me coming home again
You keep me coming home again
When you were gone, I met a friend
She taught me how to live in the end
You keep me coming home again
You keep me coming home again
Are her eyes bright or blue?
How does she keep her (??)
My heart and soul are rocked up in her eyes
I will (not break?), yeah, I recognize
I will (not break?), yeah, that's my (pride/prize?)
A (wild horse?) in her (??)
Hard to ignore, hard to disguise
Will she ever realize?
You keep me coming home again
You keep me coming home again
When you were gone, I was out in the night
(??, no idea about the last verse)

Sonic Youth - Incinerate
[Thurston]
I ripped your heart out from your chest
Replaced it with a grenade blast
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
The firefighter (turns me down?)
I don't care, I'll burn out anyhow
It's (??), nothing to see
Hear the sirens come for me
You doused my soul with gasoline
You flicked a match into my brain
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
The firefighters are so nice
I remember you so cold as ice
The flames are licking at your feet
The sirens come to put me me out of misery
You wave your torch into my eyes
Flamethrower love will (burn at night?)
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate
Incinerate

Sonic Youth - Do You Believe In Rapture?
[Thurston]
Stand behind his drunken (imp?)
Stand behind his light of love
Hear him yell his bloody tongue
Hear him yell of blood and war
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?
A terrible (hit/head?) strikes today
A terrible (hit/head?) for the parade
Burning eyes see Jesus coming
Jesus comes to pave the way
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?
Can you tell me what to feel?
Open up your tender soul
Can I drink your drunken mercy?
Wine burns the devil's (hole/home?)
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?

Sonic Youth - Sleepin Around
[Thurston]
Sleepin around, sleepin around
What will the neighbors (see/say?)
Sleepin around, all over town
What will the neighbors (see/say?)
What you did was wrong
What (you did good is?) gone
Nothing you do is right
Always ends up in a fight
Sleepin around, sleepin around
What will the neighbors do?
Sleepin around, all over town
What will the neighbors do?
What you did was wrong
What (you did good is?) gone
Nothing you do is right
Always ends up in a fight
Sleepin around, sleepin around
What will the neighbors think?
Sleepin around, all over town
What will the neighbors think?
What you did was wrong
What (you did good is?) gone
Nothing you do is right
Always ends up in a fight

Sonic Youth - What A Waste
[Kim]
Hey, give me hollow stimulation
It's so sleazy to be free
Let's invest in (dark?) creation
Thrill city, cheap legacy
What a waste
(You're so chaste?)
I can't wait,
to taste your face
(??) signals lead me to you
A sublime, spectacular (dirt?)
Safe and sound from the shattered confusion
Get the picture? Yes, it's clear (??)
What a waste
(You're so chaste?)
I can't wait,
to taste your face
Hey, give me hollow stimulation
It's so sleazy to be free
Let's invest in (dark?) creation
Thrill city, cheap legacy?
What a waste
(You're so chaste?)
I can't wait,
to taste your face
I wouldn't lead you on
(??)
You could of had it all,
but you didn't call me

Sonic Youth - Jams Run Free
[Kim]
Blasted earth
(??) immersed
Golden cave
The blondes come first
I love the way you move
I hope it's not too late for me
(It's all good on the sea?),
where the light is green,
where the light is green
(??)
Slow refrain
We love the jams,
and jams run free
I love the way you move
I hope it's not too late for me
(It's all good on the sea?)
where the light is green,
where the light is green
(??)
Slow refrain

Sonic Youth - Rats
[Lee]
When the rats run riot,
and the screen door slams
When the trees grow quiet,
nothing but cats and cans
When the breeze says "try it",
but you can hardly see
When your love (is/as?) dying,
and you rat on me
I see your eyes in the half-light,
I see the number on your wall
Endless strange things I see at night,
you don't see anything at all
Shine a light into your soul
(See these/city?) streets so freezing cold
(See these/city?) shadows mark the route,
when they let the rats out
Rats, you call it love alright
That was the catch, a cold suicide
Let me place you in my past,
with other precious toys
But if you're ever feeling low, down,
in the fractured sunshine,
I'll help you feel the noise
Shine down,
You can go on home
Shine down
Go, go
Rats, you're working overtime
You are the moon beyond your mind
When the rats run riot,
and the screen door slams
When the world goes quiet,
you'll all know where I am
You could be my open road,
you could be the reason why
You could ease my heavy load
I'm gonna freeze you up now
You can let it shine,
keep that in mind
When they let 'em out next time
You can move a little closer,
until you're moving all up around my shoulder
(See these/city?) shadows mark the route
when they let the rats out

Sonic Youth - Turquoise Boy
[Person]
("Haha, OK, dog?")
[Kim]
Turquoise boy, I must confess to you,
sweet liberation has come
You are a legend in a lovely game,
but now I feel I must run
Turquoise boy, the sky is calling me
Sweet isolation in the sun
You are a soldier in a (??)
How do you lose what's never found?
Turquoise boy, I must confess to you,
sweet liberation has come
You are a legend in a lovely game,
but now I feel I must run

Sonic Youth - Lights Out lyrics
[Thurston]
She scans the room,
for a star to consume
When eye contact is made,
I suggest, son, you fix your grave
'Cause it's lights out for you
Lights out for you
There's not a hell of a lot you can do
It's lights out for you
He rolls his eyes
at the thought of paradise
But when he makes that insect sound,
then it's time, girl, for you to leave town
'Cause it's lights out for you
Lights out for you
There's not a hell of a lot you can do
It's lights out for you
She scans the room,
for a star to consume
When eye contact is made,
I suggest, son, you fix your grave
'Cause it's lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
There's not a hell of a lot you can do
It's lights out for you

Sonic Youth - The Neutral
[Kim]
There's not a dreamer or a schemer
running away from me
There's not a singer, an entertainer
with no follow-through
There's not a poet or a mystic
with a (??)
He's just neutral, yeah, he's weary
Not even brand new
It's a perfect sin
Close your eyes and lose the rest
It's a perfect sin
Close your mind and feel the best
Everyone has a headache,
imprecise, hard to cure
Gotta shake it, what ails you
The lines are blurred
Is it a pain in your heart?
Dark and grey from the start
You won't seduce me or attract me,
just 'cause you're (??)
It's a perfect sin
Close your eyes and lose the rest
It's a perfect sin
Close your mind and feel the best
Why would you tell me what's inside your head?
Why would you show me your secret (??)
Secret head
There's not a dreamer or a schemer
running away from you
There's not a singer, an entertainer
with no follow-through
There's not a poet or a mystic
with a (??)
There's not a cowboy or a loner
with nothing to do
He's neutral, yeah, he's weary,
not even brand new
He's neutral, yeah, he's weary,
and he's so in love with you

Sonic Youth - Pink Steam
[Thurston]
I just come by to run you over
I just come by to see you quiver
You can come, you can slip inside, babe
Killer eyes and a burning heart, babe
Don't you know you need no other
than the man who loves your mother
Open up your arms to me, girl
Let me feel your (one?) heart beat, girl
Sweet lips, flowers and cream
Deep in love, surrender pink steam
Deep in love, you need no other
Deep in love, (your?) lonely lover
Feel your (one?) heart beat
Well, I'm your lover
Open up to me
I love your mother
Your sweet lips are mine
like flowers and cream
Killer, killer eyes
surrender pink steam

Sonic Youth - Or
[Thurston]
In your mouth, a wad of cash
Moist roll of hundreds
Fingers through your hair
Silver quarters drop to your pleaded skirt
Canisters of whipped cream
in your sweater pockets
A look of space and total life
Ready or not?
The plan is to go to D.C. and hang out
Go see girls rock
How long is the tour?
What time you guys playing?
Where you going next?
What comes first,
the music or the words?

Thanks in advance if you help!

Sonic Youth - What A Waste
[Kim]
Hey, give me hollow stimulation
It's so sleazy to be free
Let's invest in dull creation
Thrill city, cheap legacy
What a waste
You're so chaste
I can't wait,
to taste your face
Private signals lead me to you
A sublime, spectacular dud
Safe and sound from childhood confusion
Get the picture? Yes, it's clear as mud
What a waste
You're so chaste

You could of had it all,

Best I can tell from Flywheel:

Sonic Youth - Do You Believe In Rapture?
[Thurston]
Stand behind his drunken amp
Stand behind his light of love
Hear him yell his bloody tongue
Hear him yell of blood and war
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?
A terrible hit strikes today
A terrible hit for the parade
Burning eyes see Jesus coming
Jesus comes to pave the way
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?
Can you tell me what to feel?
Open up your tender soul
Can I drink your drunken mercy?
Wine burns the devil's home
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?

Sonic Youth - Pink Steam
[Thurston]
I just come by to run you over
I just come by to see you quiver
You can come, you can slip inside, babe
Killer eyes and a burning heart, babe
Don't you know you need no other
I'm the man who loves you mother
Open up your arms to me, girl
Let me feel your wild heart beat, girl
Sweet lips, flowers and cream
Deep in love, surrender pink steam
Deep in love, you need no other
Deep in love, your lonely lover
I feel your wild heart beat
Lonely lover
Open up to me
Lonely mother
Your sweet lips are mine
like flowers and cream
Killer, killer eyes
surrender pink steam


*Of course, the lyrics may have changed...but Pink Steam sounds like less of an incest song this way. "...loves you mother" is the correct lyric from Flywheel*

And from Sonic Mirror, it's clear that it's "What will the neighbors say?" both times. The other line is too buried.

Stop reading the thread. The contents are explicitly described in the title. I'm not in possession of the album, but the lyrics aren't going to spoil anything for me. Hell, reviews don't spoil anything for me. It's not like giving away the end of Fight Club...music is appreciated differently by everyone. Especially us, the SY fans. And if Chris L. is in the thread, I have no problem helping.

My God, some of you people are whiney fucking babies!! What the hell is yr problem??!! It's just lyrics people!!!! You all need to pull yr heads out of yr asses!! Ridiculous they way some of you react to ripoped music or leaked lyrics. "Oh my God! Someone put the album up on the internet before the album premiered and lyrics are up somewhere to! The world is coming to an end! Boo hoo!" Grow the fuck up! There is so much more that we all need to occupy our time with than downloading free music, like trying to get Bush out of office, fixing our economy, reasonably ending the war in Iraq and fixing what we've fucked up there, immigration reform, preventing drug smugglers from bringing in more illegal drugs into this country, and curing the world of religious/ethnic/racial intolerance, education reform, geting America's gang violence under control..........do you see where I'm going with this? So quit acting like little bitches!!!!

Sonic Youth - Do You Believe In Rapture?
[Thurston]
Stand behind his drunken amp
Stand behind his light of love
Hear him yell his bloody tongue
Hear him yell of blood and war
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?
A terrible hit strikes today
A terrible hit for the parade
Burning eyes see Jesus coming
Jesus comes to pave the way
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?
Can you tell me what to feel?
Open up your tender soul
Can I drink your drunken mercy?
Wine burns the devil's home
Do you believe in his sweet sensation?
Do you believe in second chance?
Do you believe in rapture, babe?

Sonic Youth - Sleepin Around
[Thurston]
Sleepin around, sleepin around
What will the neighbors say?
Sleepin around, all over town
What will the neighbors say?
What you did was wrong
What you did good is gone
Nothing you do is right
Always ends up in a fight
Sleepin around, sleepin around
What will the neighbors do?
Sleepin around, all over town
What will the neighbors do?
What you did was wrong
What you did good is gone
Nothing you do is right
Always ends up in a fight
Sleepin around, sleepin around
What will the neighbors think?
Sleepin around, all over town
What will the neighbors think?
What you did was wrong
What you did good is gone
Nothing you do is right
Always ends up in a fight

Sonic Youth - What A Waste
[Kim]
Hey, give me hollow stimulation
It's so sleazy to be free
Let's invest in dull creation
Thrill city, cheap legacy
What a waste
You're so chaste
I can't wait,
to taste your face
Private signals lead me to you
A sublime, spectacular dud
Safe and sound from childhood confusion
Get the picture? Yes, it's clear as mud
What a waste
You're so chaste
I can't wait,
to taste your face
Hey, give me hollow stimulation
It's so sleazy to be free
Let's invest in dull creation
Thrill city, cheap legacy?
What a waste
You're so chaste
I can't wait,
to taste your face
I wouldn't lead you on
Ever since you saw me
You could of had it all,
but you didn't call me

Sonic Youth - Jams Run Free
[Kim]
Blasted earth
All immersed
Golden cave
The blondes converse
I love the way you move
I hope it's not too late for me
It's too good on the sea
where the light is green,
where the light is green
Jagged brain
Slow refrain
We love the jams,
and jams run free
I love the way you move
I hope it's not too late for me
It's too good on the sea
where the light is green,
where the light is green
Jagged brain
Slow refrain

Sonic Youth - Rats
[Lee]
When the rats run riot,
and the screen door slams
When the trees grow quiet,
nothing but cats and cans
When the breeze says "try it",
but you can hardly see
When your love has died,
and you rat on me
I see your eyes in the half-light,
I see the number on your wall
Endless strange things I see at night,
you don't see anything at all
Shine a light into your soul
City streets so freezing cold
City shadows mark the route,
when they let the rats out
Rats, you call it love alright
That was the catch, a cold suicide
Let me place you in my past,
with other precious toys
But if you're ever feeling low, down,
in the fractured sunshine,
I'll help you feel the noise
Shine down,
You can go on home
Shine down
Go, go
Rats, you're working overtime
You are the moon beyond your mind
When the rats run riot,
and the screen door slams
When the world goes quiet,
you'll all know where I am
You could be my open road,
you could be the reason why
You could ease my heavy load
I'm gonna freeze you up now
You can let it shine,
keep that in mind
When they let 'em out next time
You can move a little closer,
until you're moving all up around my shoulder
City shadows mark the route
when they let the rats out

Sonic Youth - Turquoise Boy
[Person]
("Haha, OK, dog?")
[Kim]
Turquoise boy, I must confess to you,
sweet liberation has come
You are a legend in a lovely game,
but now I feel I must run
Turquoise boy, the sky is calling me
Sweet isolation in the sun
You are a soldier in a sad charade
How do you lose what's never found?
Turquoise boy, I must confess to you,
sweet liberation has come
You are a legend in a lovely game,
but now I feel I must run

Sonic Youth - Lights Out lyrics
[Thurston]
She scans the room,
for a star to consume
When eye contact is made,
I suggest, son, you fix your grave
'Cause it's lights out for you
Lights out for you
There's not a hell of a lot you can do
It's lights out for you
He rolls his eyes
at the thought of paradise
But when he makes that insect sound,
then it's time, girl, for you to leave town
'Cause it's lights out for you
Lights out for you
There's not a hell of a lot you can do
It's lights out for you
She scans the room,
for a star to consume
When eye contact is made,
I suggest, son, you fix your grave
'Cause it's lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
Lights out for you
There's not a hell of a lot you can do
It's lights out for you

Sonic Youth - The Neutral
[Kim]
There's not a dreamer or a schemer
running away from me
There's not a singer, an entertainer
with no follow-through
There's not a poet or a mystic
with a cigarette unglued
He's just neutral, yeah, he's weary
Not even brand new
It's a perfect sin
Close your eyes and lose the rest
It's a perfect sin
Close your mind and feel the best
Everyone has a headache,
imprecise, hard to cure
Gotta shake it, what ails you
The lines are blurred
Is it a pain in your heart?
Dark and grey from the start
You won't seduce me or attract me,
just 'cause you're strained
It's a perfect sin
Close your eyes and lose the rest
It's a perfect sin
Close your mind and feel the best
Why would you tell me what's inside your head?
Why would you show me your sacred bed
Secret head
There's not a dreamer or a schemer
running away from you
There's not a singer, an entertainer
with no follow-through
There's not a poet or a mystic
with a cigarette unglued
There's not a cowboy or a loner
with nothing to do
He's neutral, yeah, he's weary,
not even brand new
He's neutral, yeah, he's weary,
and he's so in love with you

Sonic Youth - Pink Steam
[Thurston]
I just come by to run you over
I just come by to see you quiver
You can come, you can slip inside, babe
Killer eyes and a burning heart, babe
Don't you know you need no other
I'm the man who loves you, mother
Open up your arms to me, girl
Let me feel your wild heart beat, girl
Sweet lips, flowers and cream
Deep in love, surrender pink steam
Deep in love, you need no other
Deep in love, your lonely lover
I feel your wild heart beat
Lonely lover
Open up to me
Lonely mother
Your sweet lips are mine
like flowers and cream
Killer, killer eyes
surrender pink steam

Sonic Youth - Or
[Thurston]
In your mouth, a wad of cash
Moist roll of hundreds
Fingers through your hair
Silver quarters drop to your pleaded skirt
Canisters of whipped cream
in your sweater pockets
A look of space and total life
Ready or not?
The plan is to go to D.C. and hang out
Go see girls rock
How long is the tour?
What time you guys playing?
Where you going next?
What comes first,
the music or the words?
