Lyrics   status: unconfirmed

I'm down in the daytime out of sight
Comin' on in the evening there's nothing but night
I'm [???????????????] time
Comin' in the evening alright
All the time

Comin' on now, we're really gonna do ya right
Comin' on now, we're really gonna lose that night
[???????????] gonna tell ya
From nowhere
To nowhere
Located thru ya

I'm down in religion and I'll take it to a dream
Call that bookstore [????????????]
I'm downtown and I'm down round town
In the room and out the window sound
I make it all the time

You're a dream and I can't see at night
Comin' on in a ???????????
My friends tell me that it's all going thru ya
Going nowhere
To nowhere
Cutting thru ya

I'm down in the dreamland right on time
I'm down in the daytime over night
I'm down in the [???????????]

From nowhere
To nowhere
Gonna meet ya

I'm down in the daytime outta light
Come on in the dreamland of night
Pull you down and see you really fight
Into yr religion in our time
All the time

  • "Mote" 8-track demo recorded in November 1989 @ Waterworks in NYC.
  • Lee's vocals on this demo are considerably different than on the Goo version. Most of the lyrics are different, too (the bridge on the album version is actually partially taken from the first verse of the demo). In fact, it sounds as though he's making some of them up as he goes, but I don't know. The outro on the demo is only about a minute long, compared to the four minutes plus on the LP.
  • The Waterworks demos were all remixed by Jim O'Rourke & SY for the 2005 Goo deluxe reissue. In many cases, the difference is significant.
