So funny how you all talk about lyrics but nobody mentions #1 lyricist of 2000s, Joanna Newsom and #1 lyricist of 1900s, Warren Zevon

The French Inhaler
Warren Zevon
How're you going to make your way in the world
When you weren't cut out for working
When your fingers are slender and frail
How're you going to get around
In this sleazy bedroom town
If you don't put yourself up for sale
Where will you go with your scarves and your miracles
Who's gonna know who you are
Drugs and wine and flattering light
You must try it again till you get it right
Maybe you'll end up with someone different every night
All these people with no home to go home to
They'd all like to spend the night with you
Maybe I would, too
But tell me
How're you going to make your way in the world, woman
When you weren't cut out for working
And you just can't concentrate
And you always show up late
You said you were an actress
Yes, I believe you are
I thought you'd be a star
So I drank up all the money,
Yes, I drank up all the money,
With these phonies in this Hollywood bar,
These friends of mine in this Hollywood bar
Loneliness and frustration
We both came down with an acute case
And when the lights came up at two
I caught a glimpse of you
And your face looked like something
Death brought with him in his suitcase
Your pretty face
It looked so wasted
Another pretty face
Devastated
The French Inhaler
He stamped and mailed her
"So long, Norman"
She said, "So long, Norman"

The French Impaler would be a good name for a metal band.

The ones standing out for me on the new record are "via an old archaic slingshot" and "I've a starship you can use"

well, how much better do you think the lyrics wouldve been if he didnt have this huge triple album rock opera idea w/ glass and all that other shit?

but at the same time how much different would it have been? then it wouldnt be machina then. no?

It varies with the artist but there's great lyrics all over. How can anyone not think Fast Car has amazing, emotional, impactful lyrics? That's just the first thing I thought of.

See eyes, see shine
See seas, see mine
See shadow's wind
See ripple, see blind
See you, see me
See destiny
See knots untied
See knots that bind

YES

And also when you ask him, make sure to mention that he sings it “in the old way.”

Someone will come to spit the seed
A single weed gets respect
I'll change my quills to break the will
Forever must hold


God I fucking hate that song. In the pantheon of Shitty Corgan Music, I think I'd rank the top (bottom) five:

1. Widow Wank My Member
2. All Things Change
3. Knights of Malt Balls
4. Gastro Pains
5. The Imploding Voice
