Grounded
Pavement Lyrics


Doctor's leaving for the holiday season
Got crystal ice picks, no gift for the gab
And in the parking lot, is the sedan he bought
He never, he never complains when it's hot

He foaled a swollen daughter in the sauna playing contract bridge
They're soaking up the fun or doing blotters I don't know which, which, which
Boys are dying on these streets

I know the medical world could knock you out
To sell the coins that you jayed last Thursday, hey
Dine by candlelight, and hold your savings tight
You never, you never know when the bridge falls apart

He spoke of latent causes, sterile gauzes, and the bedside morale
He traipse around the table talking sentences so incomplete, plete, plete
Boys are dying on these streets

This is one of those songs that sort of makes time stand still for a bit

In a sauna, playing Contract Bridge. (Note: Warren Buffett plays Contract Bridge with Bill Gates.)

yo can we all just give props to how sick the drum fills are? they are some of the most intentionally lazy and late fills I've ever heard in a rock song, it's super jazz-influenced

This is the type of song you’ll just listen to a few times and think nothing of. Then thise simplistic droning guitar notes become bells & you realize after many listens how grand a track this id

ryhisner well, as a layman, the rhythm kind of shambles along instead of being the steady backbeat (think early Beatles or Def Leppard pop hits) to my ears. It isn’t until the end of the second verse that you sort recognize the groove settling in.

For those of us unfamiliar with drumming jargon, could you explain what "intentionally lazy and late fills" are? Can you list some time stamps from this song that are good examples? Thanks.
