Let me tell you about the way the hammer moves
The hammer goes up and down
And hits the nail, on the head each time
That's the point
I write 1998
It's getting hard to go to sleep at night
And hard to get up in the morning
I tell myself, I'm going too hard, too rash, too long, too long
But this is not the truth
There's no sign of no big break down
It's just these little things that keep putting me of the track
Yeah, I have a notion of moving around in circles
Things just keep getting worse and worse
'Till they get all the way around
And then everything turns out alright
In one single flash I see book shelfs
Computer, cigarettes, photograph, pens and pencils
Pop-craving critics curving
A doctor tried to cure me of these ills
I stopped seeing him
I heard nothing more about being mentally ill
In one single flash comes words, no poetry
Did you put on weight
I take two, not one
A man with one arm
Best beer ever to come out of Belgium
If you kept drinking like this we wouldn't have to leave
It's not like I'm real hateful with our friends, our beloved friends
VCR, last goodbyes, this is not the time for old I love you's
This nail is bent and broken, straighten it out with the hands of love
This is where the hammer hit, this is its golden tongue
There speaks no more, this is his hand that will never move
This is his arm, well, this is where the hammer hit, this is when it tore apart
This nail is bent and broken, straighten it out with the hands of love
With the hands of love, with the hands of love
With the hands of love yeah, with the hands of love yeah
With the hands of love yeah, with the hands of love
With the hands of love, with the hands of love yeah
With the hands of love, with the hands of love yeah
With the hands of love yeah, uuh shalalala with the hands of love yeah
Yeah yeah.. Yeah yeah.. Yeah yeah
Let me tell you about the way the hammer moves
The hammer goes up and down
And hits the nail, on the head each time
That's the point, yeah
This mechanism can successfully be adapted to almost everything
Things like a personality, man enters the room feels like someone just left
Pain, loss, mother to silence, guitars and tambourines

Let me tell you about the way the hammer moves
The hammer goes up and down
And hits the nail, on the head each time
That's the point
I tell myself I'm going too hard, too rash, too long
Too long
Yeah, I tell myself I'm going too hard, too rash, too long, too long
But this is not the truth
There's no sign of no big break down
It's just these little things that keep putting me of the track
Yeah, I have a notion of moving around in circles
Things just keep getting worse and worse
'Til they get all the way around
And then eveything turns out alright
In one single flash I see book shelfs,
Computer, cigarettes, photograph, pens and pencils

Remember Shawn, he's a Panty Burner. He talks, women follow.
uau
where has this song been for 7 years?
nice to hear something besides "Majesty" over and over again
Dig this one...never heard before.  I like the guitar nod to Sonic Youth.
These lyrics are not completely accurate, but hopefully you can get the gist of what's being conveyed...

All right in 1998

Although this crap and some other is played up here on RP, hats off to RP for their programming that includes almost all types of music for their wide audience of listeners.
Man, I really love this song!  Madrugada just resonates with me for some reason. {#Music}
Like it! {#Dancingbanana_2}
Another band to check out after hearing them on RP. I've gotta cut down on my work hours soon to keep up.
You got to be joking. Don't tell me it's art, sort of like junky poets that sing.
Never heard it before, but it starts out getting an 8 from me. Wish I were someplace where I could turn it way up. Cool skronky guitar noises. Makes me want beer now. ...more now.

Coming from someone who rates Ozzy Osbornes "Crazy train" Godlike...That's amusing.

Cool!!!{#Dancingbanana}{#Drummer}{#Bananajam}
...very cool...
This is such a great song, they should play it more often!{#Bananapiano}

Well, it sounds like one hell of a song. :rolleyes: Great song to hear while driving. You may wish to change your name to ArbiterOfNoTaste or ArbiterOfPeanutButterStuckInEars.
What the hell was all that shit?!!? Yuck!!
groovy :bounce:
Right now, I am sitting here like a dog hearing a new sound.... :-k
i like it. it's a damn sight better than that "every day in the morning when you get out of bed" song that gets so much play...
"The hammer goes up and down and hits the nail on the head" :beat: or is it get nailed in the head? that'll learn ya, ya talky bastard

I think they should stick to making hammers.
agreed. I'm really not a fan of "talking" songs.
hamster love? :stop:
Sivert HÞyem's voice complements the brooding sound perfectly, methinks. Great music for 24 hr. nighttimes.
Ooh! I like that! I agree with the Pearl Jam/Morphine comment. I might throw a pinch Interpol in too (mood wise anyway). I would like to hear more tracks off that one.

Good insights. How did Bill find these guys? Cool music.

lyrics kinda reminds me of an Eddie Vedder rant.
Finally, something with power... :)
This is pretty great stuff, here.
Oh yeah... now this is it. Thanks Bill.... what a great tune.

maybe it if were a nice long ride off a short pier.. other wise.. when the guy stopped talking it started to get better but then went no where else.. I hear parts of maybe Blue Monday (or was it The Perfect Kiss... hmmm) by NewOrder.. but it does not seem complete, its just lacking..
nice groove :D
Great music wasted by awful lyrics/chant/rant/ramble. :??:
