Something
Idiot Flesh Lyrics


Give me something...
Give me something I can use
Give me something...
Give me something to say

Wake up!
You're empty here
I don't believe you anymore
You had so much to say
And left me holding up the floor
Just talk about something you think about
Or that would be okay
It doesn't have to be anything,
{Well, it could be nothing}
Just as long as it doesn't stay that way

Waiting, waiting...
Waiting for a song
Waiting for these hands to tell me
Why this always takes so long

And it's easy to criticize
And it's easier to laugh than cry
And it's easy to do it all again

But I don't know what to say to make you see the sun
The same sun
Shining down on me alright
Shining down on you all wrong

Waiting for all this...
To give me Something
Give me something I can use
Give me something...
Give me something to say

Be clever - ??
Don't tongue-in-cheek smile for too long
Said life is cool
Don't let 'em suspect
To get it wrong
Chew on broken glass
Let the pain feed your song
Scream bloody revolution
Cause something's got to change
It can't be you, so tear it down, son
Leave 'em wide open
And Look around

Brothers and sisters
Ride in glory
See what you have built
I guess it's alright
We hold our hands
Just use up our common ground
Waiting to make a stand
We hold our devils down

And it's easy to criticize
And it's easier to laugh than cry
And it's easy to do it all again

But I don't know what to say to make you see the sun
The same sun
Shining down on me alright
Shining down on you all wrong

Just give me
Something
Give me something I can use
Give me something...
Give me something to say

Wake up!

Most underrated band of all time? I think so. Would kill to be able to have seen them live. SGM was great enough but I heard Idiot Flesh was even better/crazier.

of all time? thats a question with no answer, nor should anyone really attempt to answer it. Were they an obscure gem during their tenure? absolutely. But their musical creativity climaxed with this album (in my most humble opinion, of course), and then their style changed and became something not like what you hear on this album. If anything in regards to your statement, I would say that this ALBUM is one of the most obscure gems of the late 80s, early 90s, and is Idiot Flesh' magnum opus.

+qwqwqwqw99 Yes, they were! Crazy shows, I remember them driving(or carrying? I was loaded) a truck through the crowd...

Thanks for uploading this. Always wanted to hear this album. I have the Nothing Show, but this album is pretty damn much impossible to find.
