Lariat
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks Lyrics


Only a chariot could cross it
Across this void

I wouldn't jerry rig or candy coat your Latin kisses

You're not what you aren't
You're aren't what you're not
You got what you want/You want what you got
People look great when they shave
Don't they?

We lived on Tennyson and venison and The Grateful Dead
It was Mudhoney summer, Torch of Mystics, Double bummer

You're not what you aren't
You're aren't what you're not
You got what you want
You want what you got
Feels so great in the shade

A love like oxygen, so foxy then so terrific now
On a jape I'm returning
Bobby spinnin' out
I was so messed up
You were drunk and high
Just a ramblin' wreck
Comin' off the breaks to see what was shaking

We grew up listening to the music from the best decade ever
Talkin' about the A-D-D's
We grew up listening to the music from the best decade ever

I've been there.

wow this is actually really good. I'm a huge Pavement fan and I never wanted to listen to Stephen's solo work, but this is terrific.

+chrisocony This is a bit coincidental that you just sent me that bit of comment as I sit in my office in Manhattan, all the co workers at lunch, and I'm blasting Half A Canyon. Perfect Sound Forever indeed!

+cactaceous Amen. I always say: Pavement never broke up. They just got some new backing musicians and changed their name. Perfect Sound Forever.

So, you are a big Pavement fan but avoided listening to the solo work of the man who technically was Pavement? That makes absolutely no sense, if I may be so blunt and honest. When Pavement broke up I was bummed but a bit after a year Malkmus' first solo album came out and I ran to snatch that up. Can still remember the anticipation before his Letterman performance with the new band. Been a fan since Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain came out and have stuck by him as a fan because he is just a very talented dude. I can actually say, that since I have grown up w his music, I play his solo stuff more than I do Pavement stuff, maybe cause I overplayed Pavement when young, but it's also a testament to how great he has been solo. I'm actually going to see him live on July 11th. For the fourth time w The Jicks. Only saw Pavement once. Long Live SM.
