Secret Knowledge Of Backroads
Silver Jews Lyrics


You wanted it
the priceless sword
You're close to dying
close the door

You wanted it
the priceless sword
You're close to dying
close the door

I see it all there
I see it behind you
Behind your Southern mind
Crystal clear

Haunted call
And he wants to be
All by himself beside the sea
Haunted all
And he wants to be
Beside himself by the sea

I see it all there
I see it behind you
Behind your Southern mind
It's all there

Kick the can
And he kicked the sand
He kicked it in the face of another man
Kick the can
And he kicked the sand
Kicked it in the face of another man

And I seen it there
I see it behind you
Behind your Southern mind
And it's all new
And it's all new

Thanks for sharing. I missed this release back in '93. Always loved the Pavement version.

Was this really recorded on a boom box like the "popmatters" article by matt gonazales says it was?

Craig Harrison

I believe it was recorded on a tape recorder in the basement of our apartment on Willow Avenue in Hoboken.
