Jumping Fences
The Olivia Tremor Control Lyrics


Lazy man who can't find his words
All caught up inside his head
He is there with you, he is there with you
And when he can't speak from too much wine,
You're always there with his line
He wants to go home
You know the jolly show must go on
But he sees me on you
And you on summer buzz and summer heat
But I don't know
For go to the picture show today

We're living day by day
And we both know
That this world can make no sense
When you jumped everybody's fence

We're living day by day
And we both know
That this world can make no sense
When you jumped everybody's fence
And you know it can
And you know you can
Know we can, yeah yeah

One of the catchiest songs I've heard in a long time. I'm going to listen to more of this band now. Thanks for uploading!

THE quintessential pop song that packs so much in at under two minutes.

For the longest time, OTC had me believing they had made a pop album on the caliber of the Beatles but whenever I looked back on it I realized there was only 2 real pop songs on the entire thing.  The hour of experimental and ambient were the only way to go about following this song, as it leaves too big of an impression for anything reasonably normal to fill.

For me this is the only album that can compete with The White album.

+MrWolfSnack thats why a lot of people just say fuck labeling. i label shit cause it makes it easier, but it only goes so far. i think there's just more to otc than pop and experimentalism. theres spirituality and genuine art happening in their music. and the beatles'

+MrWolfSnack .... really? Courtyard, Marking Time, No growing, and Holiday Surprises (meh) all seem like well written pop songs to me. Also, NYC-25 is like, my favorite closer.

Rest easy Bill. You have a legacy.
