about

this is another of my favourites. i really like the lyrics here, i really like the fucked up chorus and i really like the lost lonely guitars at the end. go james ! go me ! one of the guitars at the end is the sound of dino drumming his sticks on james' fretboard while james plays the notes. for some reason it's come out sounding like the horns on the theme to "coronation street" which can only be a good thing. i actually recorded myself pissing into the toilet and had it running thru the second breakdown there for a while. this was at a stage when i was getting up at 5 in the morning and working on the record and when i was possibly a 'wee' bit out of my mind but i don't know - it just seemed rhythmically and thematically correct ! i called this track "wees" altho nick the engineer later amended it to "special fx". i was eventually talked out of including the track but somewhere i feel a bit sad that i didn't become possibly the first artist to piss on their own record. i don't know, maybe i can go guest piss on someone else's. add a bit of echo and it's a pretty rad sound !

lyrics

i was knocking on your door while you were shouting out the chorus
saying they better get it better
yeah you sure put 'em in their place
and waking every morning to relive yet another night of horror
and all the bits of shrapnel that came flying from your face...

who's gonna be left, who's gonna wanna take you by the hand and help you get through
the dark night of yourself
who's gonna be left, who's gonna wanna hang around and help guide you through
the dark night of yourself

looks like they've let one of them out
looks like they've let one of them out
the dark night of yourself

all the crashing, all the banging, just means people cease to hear you
it's just crashing, it's just bashing, you just become this bunch of noise
a ruckus in the playroom who bust nearly all that is about him
some trouble in the playroom
yeah i guess you're just a natural naughty boy

who's gonna be left, who's gonna wanna take you by the hand and help you get through
the dark night of yourself
who's gonna be left, who's gonna wanna hang around and help guide you through
the dark night of yourself

the dark night of yourself
