Hello.

Does anyone have the correct lyrics for Tarantula?

Any different then that?

I dont want to fight, every single night
Everything I want is in your lies
You and me go back, to places I don't know to care
The spoils of all I got were left as scraps
Don't let me say this, but you're no worse than me, too crazy

The unreal, real never was, just because
The ugly, feel we've had enough
The unbelief, someone gave us up

I wanna be there when you're happy
I wanna love you when you're sad
Can't stand the morning rain
Get out I'll take your place then
Can't stand the blazing sun
Close your eyes you'll see, the angel dies

I don't wanna be, anything believes
A million watts of sound can't compare
Come along you'll see the world
Impulse removes, the crowd unclosed, the chorus starts to flow and then you're home
Oh is the White House all they want?
I'll sing for...

The unreal, real never was, just because
The ugly, every living soul
The oh so real, someone gave us up

Don't break the oath
I wanna love you when you're happy
Don't break the soul
I wanna be there when you're sad
Withstand the pouring rain

The unreal, as real as any loss, too easy now
The unreal in every living soul
Dumb day now

Can't stand the blazing sun
Can't stand the morning rain
Ah get out I'll take your place ... again
I don't wanna be alone
I don't wanna be alone
I dont wanna be alone - no

If its the White House all they want,
Black house they'll get

white hot soul instead of white house, thats for sure

angel dust instead of angel eyes

"everything i want is in your eyes"

black heart instead of black house

It's funny we can never quite tell what he's singing. I've listened to Siamese Dream literally thousands of times, and I still have no idea what half the lyrics are.

Siamese Dream has a booklet full of lyrics.

Yeah, if you can read microscopic chicken-scratch, scribbled over photographs and paintings.

or if you have an earlier pressing with full-page photos.

or the Internet.

I bought my copy in 1993.

And I have looked up a few lyrics online, but after I realized how bad they were, I decided it was probably best not to know.

Besides, regardless of all the available resources, my original point still stands that much of Billy's singing is unintelligible.

i have to third "for scraps" and "at all".

You and me go back

I don't want to be
Anything believed

The current starts to flow and then you're on

"Don't they know" instead of "God gave us"

and sometimes i think it changes to "white hot sun" at the end.

are you saying "lies" is better than "laughs" or that "lies" should be changed to "laughs".

sometimes it helps to use words over mathematical symbols when one is talking about words instead of mathematics.

I don't want to fight
Every single night
Everything I want is in your eyes

You and me go back
To places I don't know to care
The spoils of all I got were left for scraps

Don't let me say this
But you're no worse than me
It's crazy

We all are real, if real ever was, just because
We all feel we've had enough
I'm real, 'cause someone gave us sound

I want to be there when you're happy
I want to love you when you're sad
Can't stand the morning rain
Get out and take your place then
Can't stand the blazing sun
Then close your eyes you'll see
The angel dust

I don't want to be
Anything believed
A million watts of sound can't compare

Come along you'll see the world
The pulse ripples, the crowd unfurls
The current starts to flow and then you're on

Oh it's a white hot soul they want
Sinful

You're real, if real ever was, just because
We all are real, every living soul
Yes I'm real, 'cause someone gave us sound

Don't break the oath
I want to love you when you're happy
Don't break this oath
I want to be there when you're sad
Please bring the pouring rain

Beyond real, as real as any ghost
It's easy now
And I'm real, in every living soul
Don't they know

Can't stand the blazing sun
Can't stand the morning rain
Get out and take your place again
I don't want to be alone
I don't want to be alone
I don't want to be alone at all

If it's a white hot soul they want
It's a black heart they'll get

I wanted to say that I think billy sings "the laughs we shared" (or "lives") instead of "the lies we shared"...it makes more sense with the next line. (I'm listening to the berlin acoustic show)

"We’ll have some trust,
We’ll have some youth.". is rather "the hearts untouched..the hearts alone".

tcm
06-06-2007, 05:04 PM
then i agree with you. except i hear "but hearts untouched, the hearts unloved".

this is what i'm hearing for the three choruses:

we all are real, if real ever was, just because
we all are real, and feel we've had enough
we all are real, cause someone gave us up

we all are real, if real ever was, just because
we all are real, in every living soul
yes i'm real, cause someone gave us up

we all are real, as real as any ghost, it's easy now
we all are real, in every living soul
don't they know

check out the rock am ring video from a few days ago and compare. it's easier to hear what he's singing at the show as opposed to the studio version.

Does anyone have the correct lyrics for Tarantula?

I wanna love you when you're sad

I don't wanna be, anything believes
A million watts of sound can't compare

Oh is the White House all they want?

I don't wanna be alone
I don't wanna be alone
I dont wanna be alone - no

If its the White House all they want,
Black house they'll get

Everything I want is in your eyes ( not lies)

Can't stand the mourning rain (instead of morning)

Close your eyes you'll see, the angel dust (not dies)

The pulse ripples through crowd unfelt
The current starts to flow and then your on

Don't break thee oath
I wanna love you when your happy
Don't break this oath
I wanna be there when your sad
Please bring the pouring rain.

White hot soul instead of "white house"
Black heart instead of "black house"

I think this is really close but one line I think is different is:

"The pulse ripples, the crowd unfurls" should be

The pulse ripples through crowd unfelt

I also think "morning rain" should be spelled mourning rain. But that's just my opinion.

Sounds like 'the crowd unfolds' to me, and it kinda fits with the lyrics above and below it

It's possibe. I'll have to give it another listen. I really do think it should be mourning rain though as the line before it is "blazing sun". Blazing is an adjective as would be mourning. On the other hand, morning rain would make it a noun which wouldn't really flow with the rest of the verse. Billy also likes to use plays on words and words with double meanings so I would think mourning would make the most sense.

Not to mention that Billy often uses the word rain to symbolize tears. A good example would be Blank Page (My friends call...leaking rain on the phone...)

morning would be an adjective here. it could be that Billy has mourning in mind, but until the official lyrics come out there's no practical way for us to make a determination one way or the other.
