Dear Head on the wall

Look until you're too simple

And the softness of knowing hurts

And the softness of knowing hurts



Dear Head on the wall

Afraid to mention the deaths

That I can't stuff into my mouth

That I can't stuff into my mouth

All the longing that is

A pity pretty pin

A pity pretty pin

And the sadness will come

When there is no one



Dear Head on the wall

Forget what we already know

Hang a picture of your heart

Bandaged in surgeon's bowl

Opened up to it all

A pity pretty pin

A pity pretty pin

Idea Sounds like someone stole Nick Cave's vocals and concepts while stealing arcade fire's music and band, while borrowing words from the cure's head on the door... No thanks... do not want {#Frown}


sounds like bowie on 'heathen'... 
Wow, a surprise add of one of my uploads. Very belatedly, as this album has been out for a while! :lol: Check out his new album Real Animal, which is even better, and say a little prayer for the uploads from it.

Hardly. Par for the RP course... Mr. Escovedo is wonderful. c.
:doh: marginal indeed
He put on a good show on Austin City Limits.

Bill get some new CDs in the mail? Beck--then this. Nice
Caught Alejandro on Austin City Limits about a year ago and purchased this CD as a result. I've heard this track on RP by another artist before. Is Alejandro covering them, or are they covering him?
Second
First!
