She used to love me but it's
Over now
That was a good thing that's
Gone man, gone

I pass the hours
Just to get by
Talk to the dogs
So I know that I'm alive

I never thought that I should quit
All the stupid crazy shit that I do
In the name of
Keepin' good things away

Some things you can
Puck right up
Other things
Well, you better not screw up
My problem was
That I could not see
What was important
Right in front of me

I never though that I should quit
All the stupid crazy shit that I do
In the name of
Keepin' good things away

How much longer, man
Before they surf?
It's here today
But it's gone man, gone

The epitaph scratched upon my stone:
"Here lies a man who just wanna be alone"

She used to love me but it's
Over now
That was a good thing that's
Gone man, gone

Another first for me here on RP. Just like the previous Depeche Mode track. I'm getting old new music in my ears.

Not really - it's a pretty standard type of R&B-derived rock rhythm (used in hundreds of songs), and its riff, tempo, and song structure are different than those of "Lust For Life").  To me, it has more in common with "One Way Out" by Elmore James, which was later popularized by The Allman Brothers.
woo-hoo, good wake up tune thank you!

Iggy Pop, indeed.
Frankly, I don't like either one.

this has a 50's rock feel to me —-sounds like a lot of old early rock songs.

Nice. Didn't know they had a new album out.
I like the track (and the profanity!)
The album is really good. Like this song
Profanity? No sir don't like it!

I thought it might've been Charles Burns, but it's Tomine. Pretty great cover

for you eels fans that might not know about this rather strange NOVA program (strange for NOVA that is).
Hi, romeotuma - welcome back to the land of the paradise! {#Cheers}


Wow, this song has a lot of profanity in it...  I like it...


Ain't but one way out baby, Lord I just can't go out the door.

Cause there's a man down there, might be your man I don't know.


"Walk like an Egyptian...."  Dang, I hate myself for loving this song... But it's okay. I usually forgive myself pretty quickly, and life's too short for metaphorical self-flagellation. *g*  LET'S DANCE!  {#Dancingbanana}{#Bananajam}{#Dancingbanana_2}

Don't forget that it's good for the ears.

I'm lovin it but i think i need a pick up truck to get full appreciation.  I'll just have to imagine.

"Really great"?  Doesn't really good work?  Nice cover art, by the way: looks like Adrian Tomine or Daniel Clowes did it.

 
Or Jaime Hernandez.

There hasn't been a really great Eels song since Saturday Morning, and this song doesn't change that.
 
I guess everyone has different tastes, but I wouldn't rank "Saturday Morning" as even among the top 50 Eels songs.

oooo, a bad word in a rock and roll song! What's this world coming to?   {#Rolleyes}
Love me some Eels! Good stuff.

Kinda reminds me of Link Wray's "Black Widow", better known as the inspiration of Zeppelin's "Moby Dick" {#Bananajam}
I like the new direction, eel growth.
Kickin!  {#Dancingbanana}

I LIKE THIS PICTURE.
D'oh! I missed it. I'm really interested in hearing the new Eels CD so I hope it gets some more play here. Thanks RP.
This song ROCKS!  Thanks RP!
