Vergiftung : Lyrics

lyrics & music by Whittemore

Features A Real Drummer!: Chris Brick, Battery Studio recording tech - for $20! You will find his name (and Martin's) on the back of the Will Smith (The Fresh Prince) single of Boom! Boom! Shake The Room.
Bass samples constructed from a vocal introduction taken from live set by folk artist Carrie Newcomer (her latest album album is on Rounder Records - buy it!)

This was probably my very first song with a traditional verse, chorus, verse, chorus, verse arrangement, and it happened completely by accident; at the time I didn't really pay attention what differentiated a verse from a chorus. But my adopted boy genius was egging me on, so I kept with it until the words finally presented themselves. Along the Vergiftung time-line, this is about when the mad-in-intensity Sharp/Whittemore line-up became the mad-about-melody Whittemore/Branam line-up. Basically, this is where we stopped being chaos, whether that be good or whether that be bad.

There are 5 melodies fighting it out during the chorus.

Oh yeah, lyrics.... as Pat Fish would say: "Whaddya want, a diagram?"


Her hair went from blonde to brown,
My eyes from brown to green.
In a downpour I was taken,
By the bluest eyes I'd ever seen.

I know that wanting love is simply not enough,
But living lost in her eyes is where I'm caught.

Coz we went spinning,
I was taken,
Drawn by her gravity

Well I never thought
After all the love and talks
That I'd never
That I'd never
That I'd never see her again

What had happened happens over and over:
This selfish notion to share love with another
Always ends in carpet-eating misery
Its a mystery.
Why she said that I could not talk,
I say she did not care.

Well I never thought
After all the PAIN and talks
That I'd never
That I'd never
That I'd never see her again

Won't you tell her that I need her love tonight
Won't you tell me where my love has gone tonight
Won't you tell her that I need her love tonight
I only ever tried to please her
Now she's under anesthesia

Still..
