Lyrics: Saint Andrew's Fall


Recorded at: Kingways Studios, New Orleans in 1994-1995

 

Big stretch and not much sleep
I got a couple of palm trees on each side of my cheek
And it's a bright blue Saturday
And the rummage sellin' the rubbish to me
But if I could buy the sky, that's hanging
over this bed of mine
If I could climb these vines
and maybe see what you're seeing
If you were standing on the corner staring straight
into the eyes of Jesus Christ
One porch, one dog, one cockroach only one way to be
I got sewage fruit and it's growing out back from roots
I don't know if they belong to me
But if I could buy the sky that's hanging
over this bed of mine
And if I could climb these vines
and maybe see what you're seeing
Sitting at the edge of this building,
Twenty stories below, twenty stories below
Twenty stories below
I can't tell you, how many ways that I've sat
and viewed my life today, but I can tell you
I don't think that I can find an easier way
So if I see you walking hand in hand in hand
with a three armed man, you know I'll understand
But you should have been in my shoes yesterday
You should have been in my shoes yesterday
(Background of last verse)
Oh,I can pull the crappy things we did together
In my day so I posed myself some questions
Maybe this week's gonna get me into shape
Hey, I got my head buried 'neath the pillow,
I got my head beneath my pillow so low

Letters From A Porcupine DVD

 

"We were all sitting there arguing about a monitor mix and that happened (a woman jumped from a building in Detroit) -it made me realize how much the monitor mix has nothing to do with the big picture."... "You learn so much about yourself through tragic scenarios.... I think it just made me realize things that you take for granted."
Shannon Hoon - 1995
