The Jazz Butcher Lyrics The Good Ones


The Good Ones
Now God knows what He's doing.
And God knows me and you.
And Jesus loves the Spacemen.
yes... Three
And Jesus! I love you.
I hate you to go, there's no use in hiding,
Head for the sunset and boy, keep driving,
With the good ones.

Now I think you'd laugh to hear this tune
If you were here tonight.
But I thought I saw you the last time twice.
Turns out one time I was right.
Man and machine in the night keep driving,
Man and machine never might arrive...
With the good ones.

Now they ask if I've heard voices...
Only sometimes, late at nights.
I don't get too much sleep these days.
I don't turn out the light.
But now I'm going to bed 'coz there's no more rhymes,
We're out of our heads at the best of times
With the good ones.
The good ones.

Big Planet, Scarey Planet
Early 1989 was, indeed a strange and desperate time after all that triumphalist Tory looting that had been going on. We listened to a lot of hip-hop and soul music at the time, and I think that we considered ourselves sufficiently HARD to take the whole fucker on in an l.p. Possibly with a more "clued-in" producer and a bit more self-discipline we could have come up with something like what we were looking for.

Edward's Closet
So you've got a CD player, have you? I've got a headache and an abiding dislike of expensive food crews in dumb baseball hats. I've been in Edward's Closet and he wasnt't in. "That JBC", they mutter at the bus-stop, "turned left at the light a Long Time Ago".

    It took me a lot more than twice to be right once.
