Someone Who's Cool
Odds Lyrics


In natural selection
I've avoided all detection
And the tender bits underneath
All with window dressing and
Calculated guessing
And a bark bigger than my teeth

It was the suit that got me the gig
It was the tear that got me the girl
I'm a sheep in this wolf's clothing
I'm a picture that I'm holding
Of someone who is cool

Soul like a thimble
Swallowed up in symbols
Wanting what I don't need
If sympathy's the answer
I'll have temporary cancer
But that's not what I'll have you believe

It was the suit that got me the gig
It was the tear that got me the girl
I'm a sheep in this wolf's clothing
I'm a picture that I'm holding
Of someone who is cool
Someone who is cool

Close but kind of meatless
Like actors who play Jesus
In movies of the week
What other people wish for
Oozes from my every pore
I'm the coffee not the sleep

And I'm the song about the song
That once said something new
I'm a scandal that's unfolding
I'm a picture that I'm holding
Of someone who is cool
Someone who is cool

Soul like a thimble swallowed up in symbols
Wanting what I don't need
If sympathy's the answer I'll have temporary cancer
But that's not what I'll have, you believe
It was the suit that got me the gig
It was the tear that got me the girl
I'm a sheep in this wolf clothing
I'm a picture that I'm holding of someone who is cool
Someone who is cool
Close but kind of meatless

Very underrated Canadian band....

Mathieu

There are so many underrated Canadian bands, but Odds are indeed one of them!

maixiu

For my money, The Odds went toe-to-toe with Sloan in terms of Canadian power pop in the 1990s.

benjamin mcfarlane

@Mathieu i may just do that - right after this afrobeat kick simmers down

Mathieu

@benjamin mcfarlane fair enough! Music is a personal opinion! I was just teasing anyway! They're both amazing bands! You should totally listen to more Sloan though!

benjamin mcfarlane

@Mathieu well, for me Sloan was not as entertaining - maybe I havent listened to enough of their catalogue, but of what I have heard, I simply don't understand the hype. This is, of course, my subjective musical opinion.

Mathieu

@benjamin mcfarlane no way dude, I love Odds but no way are they better than Sloan.

benjamin mcfarlane

That or they actually destroy Sloan

The Odds a Canadian band that should be better know, great iconic song of the 90's .... Someone Who is Cool

BCboy:
For real----I don't think I've ever seen this video, and I like the time lapse tricks, as well as the pretty color scheme. This was the Odds' first breakthrough (and only) U.S. hit, yet they broke up some time afterwards---go figure. Believe or not, this song was originally written for the soundtrack of Friends, but it didn't make the cut for some reason. But yeah, they should have blown up bigger in the U.S.---never understood why that didn't happen for them, either.
