No perforation, in your thick skin
She's for leaving, you're for fixing
Party's over even in the kitchen
Take the taste away

You were winning, till they changed ends
Said the drinker to the bartend
No reputation left to defend
Broken hearts and bones
Talking on the telephone

Saying hey la la hey la la
Oh would you
Could you
If I asked you nicely would you

In the ship's hold, you were patient
For the verdict of the nation
Telephone broke watch the animation
What will they say
Whose tune will she play

Saying hey la la hey la la
Oh would you
Could you
If I asked you nicely would you

Into the stew
No matter what we do
One day we may find we got left behind
You can run, baby you can hide
But one day you will find you got left behind
You got left behind

Hey la la
Oh would you
Could you
If I ask you nicely would you

Amen.
Boooooooring song.
Yea, it is amazing that the same group can put out a musical masterpiece such as How We Operate and also put out this piece of shit!!{#Puke}
Commenting again ... I don't get why this song from A New Tide is played so much. To my taste, it's the weakest song on the album. Sunset Gates may be the strongest and it's not on the RP playlist.
thanks RP 4 gomez, havent found them myself without u!{#Hug}
the chorus is especially nice

It's a pretty typical sound from Tom Gray, quite different from Ben Ottewell's songs, which are different from Ian Ball's songs. Tom sings "la la la" a lot and tends to be goofier than the other two. To my taste, Ben's and Ian's songs have more depth and interest.

Terrific album. I had reservations if they could follow How We Operate, but no worries...
Hey MojoJojo, as a big Gomez fan, I'll see your bubblegum and raise you a powerpuff girls:

power puff
Goatmess's stuff is so variable style wise, its all over the map. Some of it is really good and this is even different than their previous stuff. Not to bad....
awesome live band, seen em twice.... foot-stomping thoroughly danceable fun!

5.8 is a weird rating when 4 out of 5 comments I see are pretty glowing.
 
It's a funny ratings curve; rare to see a song hit such a hard upper wall; they usually have something like your basic bell curve...

Hey Bill actually reads this stuff.

song's a little disappointing for me (from them), but I like it alright (6).  Speaking for plebs everywhere.  And we like to spell it plebeian, mister.


5.8 is a weird rating when 4 out of 5 comments I see are pretty glowing.
Sorry, but these guys are plebian waste. Rating? Try F. Or 1.1

Never heard Gomez making this kind of sound before. Catchy!
New Gomez? Ooooh, another one to add to my shopping list.
 
This particular song is rather groovy and crunchy at the same time. I like it.

I can relate.  It's like they're under the radar or something. 


Ah, I do love Gomez. Thanks BillG!
