The Gerbils Lyrics

She comes to me whenever I am locked inside my room
Buried in the tune that I call love

She sings to me, the words I cannot hear
But then, the melody's so clear it makes me cry

Her love is so beautiful
Her love is so real, it smells like glue

She's leaving me to find a place she never will call home
I stand shaking like a stone and smile inside

She's calling me to come to her and curl inside her womb,
I hear lies, acid too, but I won't die,
The pain is so beautiful, the urge is so real,
It smells like glue

And I will scream, she hears me
I will tell myself she loves me
And all the lies and fears
Will stick to me like glue

This song never feels long enough.


I will tell myself she loves me And all the lies and fears will stick to me like glue I love the lyrics to this song


I was one of the people who shouted for him to play "Glue!" I was so bummed that he didn't, but it was a great show nonetheless.

saw scott play this in november when i went to go see jeff magnum in jersey, amazing. when he was done i was like "hell yea the gerbils rule!" and no one there knew what i was talking about or even that he was one of the original members of neutral milk was kind of jersey hipsters are terrible. regardless though it was an amazing show

Andrew Hartman

I was lucky enough to see Scott play this two nights in a row opening for Jeff in Portland. It was pretty awesome.
