Half a Canyon
Pavement Lyrics

Ah shit, baby
Canyon bro', your life is worked in
Dream about the witch trials
You get all too hot of pepper
In your forecast
Beneath the shady mezzanine
Keep it when you want to belong
July fourth, raging fortune
Dream about the witch trials
Send in the romance of people

With their dreadlocks
Tied like windshields in the night
Keep it when you want to belong
I keep my head on for pretty jades
I keep my head up for ships and shade
I keep my head up for Richie Raid?
I keep my head up for guilty rays?
(Feel like I'm falling!)
Allez! allez! allez! allez!
Allez! allez! allez! allez!

The White Stripes formed in 1997. This album was released in 1995. This may sound similar to White Stripes, but just because you are more well-acquainted with the White Stripes and you most likely heard the White Stripes first, that does not magically mean that the White Stripes came first and that Pavement is copying them.

Got this on vinyl when it came out. Still one of my favorite albums. One of the greatest screams ever recorded.


greatest jam band of the 90's.

Uhh this album came out about two years before the white stripes were even active.

Listening in 2019, and drinking beer, and alive - ftw.
