Kerosene
Big Black Lyrics


I was born in this town
Live here my whole life
Probably come to die in this town
Live here my whole life
Never anything to do in this town
Live here my whole life
Never anything to do in this town
Live here my whole life
Probably learn to die in this town
Live here my whole life
Nothing to do, sit around at home
Sit around at home, stare at the walls
Stare at each other and wait till we die
Stare at each other and wait till we die
Probably come to die in this town
Live here my whole life
There's Kerosene around, something to do
There's Kerosene around, she's something to do
There's Kerosene around, she's something to do
There's Kerosene around, we'll find something to do
Kerosene around, she's something to do
Kerosene around, set me on fire
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire
Kerosene around, something to do
There's Kerosene around, find something to do
There's Kerosene around, find something to do
Kerosene around, find something to do
Kerosene around, she's something to do
Kerosene around, set me on fire
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire
Kerosene around, she's something to do
Kerosene around, now what do we do?
Jumped Kerosene, now what do we do?
Jumped Kerosene, now what do we do?
Kerosene around, nothing to do
Jumped Kerosene, now what do we do?
Never anything to do in this town
Never anything but jump Kerosene
Never anything to do in this town
Never anything
Jump Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire, Kerosene
Set me on fire

Once, in 1997, I met up with a couple of friends who were breathlessly telling me about some absurd song they had just heard on the radio driving over there. Something about kerosene. The way they described it made it sound like the most hypnotically compelling thing ever put to tape and I, by some accident of circumstance, was fated to never hear it.

Literal decades later I saw an AV Club article about Steve Albini that linked this song and, finally, I heard it. It didn't disappoint.

Cool!!

i had no idea what song the joker and the thief was by wolf mother but i heard it in my head all the time, turns out i heard it on need for speed carbon and only realized what it was cause it was on the jackass 2 soundtrack

The day I heard this, my awkward teenage identity crisis was over.

It's about a perticularly gruesome act of self destruction,maybe in order to become something else.

Big Black is like the soundtrack of the midwest.
