Follow Me Around
i see you in the dark
corner of the street
coming after me
headlights on full beam
coming down the fast lane, coming after me
i would like to change back now
to the shadow of, the shadow of my former self
it follows me around (x2)
did you lie to us tony ?
we thought you were different
now you know we're not so sure
drooling looney tunes
moving in the swarm
moving in the swarm
it follows me around (x4)
nowadays i get panicked
i ceased to exist
i have ceased to exist
i feel absolutely nothing
the words are out of ink
the words you know are out of ink
follow me around (x4)
Mixée par Pawel Osmolski à partir d'une
version de Thom acoustique
Un titre superbe, que l'on voit répété par
le groupe dans Meeting People Is Easy.
Un peu répétitif, mais très, très joli. Beaucoup
de bruits de guitares bizarres, sur un rythme rapide, avec une batterie très
présente. Le tout est très rock, puissant, bref... elle est bien.
3 fois en concert.
i could blow a hole in anything
im trying not to stare
but then the snakes come out your hair
i think that your for real
but every bloody morning
snakes come out your hair
and follow me around.
it may well be that because we are working on completely
new material it seems that we have not moved much today, like yesterday. but
we discussed ' follow me around' and how we would like to approach it, rather
than just start playing and thereby fall into old habits. plank says he likes
the 'remain in light' style jam we had which is good because we were pretty
nonchalant about it. 'de la soul'esque jam at end.

[...] segway into 'follow me around' and
a reworking of the 'cminor song' (in a stax stylee). jonny meanwhile is attempting
to put the vocal mic through his analogue filters - which looks like a remake
of an old telephone exchange. "hello vicar, yes ill put you through to mr kipling"...
so the last two songs are punctuated by sudden bursts of unearthly noises, both
extremely good and extremely bad.

[...] twice around 'follow me around' - mmm.
not great, but salvaged by 'you and whose army' [...]

[...] there was some protool arranging on
'follow me around' and an attempt to do vocal, piano and drums on 'egyptian
song'. was sounding ok. [...]
there is a version running around. it is long. there
is a cool drum machine on it. some piano. err. ed on bass. i need to take a
break from it now. it has taken me months to write the words properly.
