Kick The Tragedy
Drop Nineteens Lyrics


I think it was the first time i realized that i can change the world,
Or at least change the way you and my sister hit the clock on every tick just to see what happened.
The time has really flown by i guess and it's hard to think of the way it might've been or Remember very specifically the words and all the rest of it.
I was down, more than i wanted to be probably.
That is what we do with it all together,
Like the orange trees in the backyard and it's Easter and it just won't end.
Fucking Phil, he's off with his boys somewhere and i'm just sitting here getting more and More lost with everything.
And that was the thing about it, it's not as if a cousin promised something and taken it away.
It was like nobody could share my so-called dreams, which really meant none of it was happening.
And that reach around midnight left her with just about that, nothing.
There's not anything particular about it either and i think the whole thing gets vaguer Every second,
But i am too and there's nothing wrong with that.
It's even funny when you stop to realize i'm just nineteen,
And how serious can anything be anyway? not very.

I think it was the first time I realized I could change the world, or at least change the way me and my sister hit the clock on every tick just to see what would happen. The time was really flowing by I guess and it’s hard to think of the way it might have been or remember really specifically the words and all the rest of it. I was down, more than I’ll ever be probably, that has more to do with it altogether. Like the orange trees in the backyard and it’s Easter and it just won’t end. Fucking Phil, he’s off on his board somewhere and I’m just sitting here getting more and more lost with everything. That is the thing about it, it’s not as if a cousin had promised something and taken it away. It was like nobody could share my so-called dreams which really meant none of it was happening. And that reach around midnight left you with just about that, nothing. There’s not anything particular about it either and I think that the whole thing gets vaguer every second. But I am too and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s even funny when I stop and realize I’m just nineteen, how serious can anything be anyway? Not very.

One of the most glorious pieces of prose ever written. I've loved this soliloquy since it first came out and to this day. Thank you for transcribing it for all to read who care.

this song is one of the perks of being alive

The Lighthouse in the Metal Galaxy

Blessed for my ears!!

Beautiful noise. I was into shoegaze at the time but for some reason I didn't hear this song till about 1 year ago The weird thing is that this song perfectly captures the early 90's, I was in my early 20's, takes me back to that year. The song and shoegaze is perfect for a young person because it captures the chaos and confusion one goes through at that age, but it does it in a beautiful way. It's cerebral music, reaches into your soul, not fluff or shallow.

And now you're a bitter conservative reactionary with a huge arsenal of weapons, judging by your profile pic

@21 year old doomer 18 years old now and since i listened shoegaze at the age of 16 couldn't stop

I'm now [old]. For me it was the same thing, but it was the Cocteau Twins back then. Couldn't even get it in the US. You had to fly to Europe and hand carry the vinyl back. I discovered them in '82 on the radio. Recorded it immediately. Thanks WMNF Tampa, just...thanks for Generic New Wave (1981-1989), and thanks DJ Vinnie B, for turning my world around. ''Caroline's Fingers'' from Blue Bell Knoll - yeah I wore that cassette out. Above all, I'm so glad that what Robin Guthrie and Liz Frazer created, has gone on to form a whole sub-genre, and are touching the hearts in legions of new fans. This music has made my life more beautiful. Love for you all.

You commented something I wanted to say but I was missing the words for it. About shoegaze being perfect for young people. I have an older friend that was questioning why younger people are getting into shoegaze recently. People around my age 15~25 (I don't know) have never been so depressed I think. In college lots of my friends have it, including myself. Young people are dealing with lots of mental issues nowdays. I think that's why the increasing number of younger people getting into this kind of music.
