Witch Mountain Bridge

In better times, a spell could save you
The wine that we threw into a chasm
Came right back at you

Now it’s all so straight and narrow
And the skeptics rule the nation
The servants scream, “always wear black.”

The stupid sin, romantic wishscapes
Give you a skewed impression of the realms of the magic arts
Yes, it’s all over your heads so enjoy the dim vacation
The servant reads, “never wear black.”

There is no now — you can tape that to your devil-brow
Time came before the end, my lord, explain your cattle call
What we need is a soft second serve of your fine approximations
Shepherd read, “always wear black.”

Pavement | Cut Your Hair | Crooked Rain | Stephen Malkmus | 90’s

Pavement’s video for their song “Cut Your Hair” from their second album Crooked Rain released in 1994!

Cut Your Hair
Darlin’ don’t you go and cut your hair
Do you think it’s gonna make him change?
“I’m just a boy with a new haircut”
And that’s a pretty nice haircut
Charge it like a puzzle,
Hit me wearin’ muzzles
Hesitate to die, look around, around,
The second drummer’s drowned
His telephone is found
Music scene is crazy,
Bands start up each and every day
I saw another one just the other day
A special new band
I remember lying
I don’t remember lies
I don’t remember what
But I don’t care,
I care,
I really don’t care
Did you see the drummer’s hair?
Advertising looks and chops a must
No big hair!
Songs mean a lot
When songs are bought
And so are you
Bitch, rant down to the practice room
Attention and fame so
Career, career, career
Songwriters: Stephen Malkmus
