Lyrics From The Guinea Pig EP

In case you're interested, these are the non-sensical ramblings written by Bob Whelan that were sung on the guinea pig EP. All songs copyright Bea and Millie Music, ASCAP...blah blah blah.


"Did I Hurt You"

Holding out, for the long run
This time thinking if I keep thinking
This time thinking if I keep thinking sound
Thinking sound, overdue..
Walls around, watered life
If I'm the captain of my soul
I need to mutiny, regain control
Regain control, I'm overdue

Trying to find, trying to find
A room without a ceiling
Trying to find some way to keep from feeling
Did I hurt you? Did I? Did I hurt..

I've been lost for a long time, on my own
Hiding out, from the people I can't see eye to eye with
I keep slipping
All I know is I keep slipping down again
Why? Am I the one who's tripping?
All I know is I need to hear that sound again

Trying to find, trying to find
A room without a ceiling
Trying to find some way to keep from feeling
Did I hurt you? Did I? Did I hurt...


"Given Up"

Once I was lost for an ending
I'd end it to try to begin
Grit my teeth, close my eyes
Turn my outsides in
Put it out...

If you take away the parts that make up the whole
You put out the light in my soul

Watching someone I'm not in beginning
Become someone I'm not in the end
I lie awake at night, my insides tighten up
Feel the lights grow dim

If you take away the parts that make up the whole
You put out the light in my soul

Given Up/Lost my inspiration
Given Up/Got no hope, no sense if he could
Take it back/ Under deep sedation
Given up/ I sleep at night
And leave it all behind...
Put it out

If you take away the parts that make up the whole
You put out the light in my soul

Given up/Lost my inspiration
Given up/ Got no hope, no sense
Take it back/no sense of self to look into
Given up/no sense of self to pull me through
Given up/I think I can live without you
Given up/I think I've been knocked down

And leave it all...
It seems that I was might to die in the end.


"My Town"

You've got to bring it down
In my tribe, there's a way that everybody speaks
In my town, there's a wall that no one there can see
Nailed down, unwritten laws, say no one there can leave
Rules to live, rules to love, and nothing in between
And you've got to bring it down...

In my tribe, there's a way that everybody speaks
Telling lies, the smiling kind, and no one says what they mean
When I try to make a difference - I've been turning on myself
I keep lying to the people, I've been lying to myself
And it's all up to you

You've got to bring it down
Bring it down all over me


"So Little"

Oh, I just found out, I've been tripping on the shadows of my doubts
If you backed them up, the way we're taught to hide
A rage that's ripping at me from all sides
And I said my sister, my sister twists, and there's nothing I can do
You make me feel so little

If you backed it up, to the times when I
Trusted, oh I trusted all the time
But nothing that I'll ever do can heal the holes that they bore through
Oh lee oh lee infrey in my mind

Brother Sun, Sister Moon, stand beside give me some room
I'm falling down from the sky

You make me feel so little

I don't know why - I lied, I lied
I don't know why - It's dark inside
It could be my pride
If someone had watched over me, if someone had protected me
Can someone bring me in out from the cold?

Brother Sun, Sister Moon, stand aside give me some room
My Mother Earth, My Father Sky, where do I go when I die? I go east...


"Dance"

I said there's something in the way you move that makes me think that I'm in love with you
There's something in the way you move, that makes me think I hate myself
I said there's something in the way you move that makes me think
I think that I am falling, falling back again
And I'm falling/out of time
Time out of sight/it's out of mind
I look for the courage/I can't find
Then she walks up and she says
Dance with me

I think there's something in the way you're cool that makes me sweat
I think I'm breaking up inside
I think there's something in the way you're cool that melts me
I think I fall apart
I think there's something in the way you're cruel that makes me think
I think that I'd come crawling, crawling back again
Time out of sight/it's out of mind
I look for the courage/I can't find
Then she walks up and she says
Dance with me


"Rico"

I'd say for certain to watch over me
Phone rings at half past three
I'd say for certain to watch over me When the phone rings at half past three
My mind,
And it's coming back to back to me from my dreams
Only knows that bad news never sleeps...

Yeah, Rico carved his name in a tree
Not with a knife but with his life
Or so it goes
Yeah, in dreams I see his face
I recognize the place right next to dashboard Jesus

Cold snow, a small red river flowed
In the stage of the lone headlight
Clothes shorn, it seems that they've been worn for the last time
Tonight

I knew then, these couldn't be my friends
They know enough to know that you don't make snow angels with your face down
Angels with your face upon the ground

Rico carved his name in a tree
Not with a knife but with his life
Or so I'm told
Yeah, in dreams I see his face
I recognize the place right next to dashboard Jesus
Had to get me home in time
In time to tape The Simpsons
And it seems, I lost this time
It seems that last song that they heard
The last song that they heard, it plays on and on and on and on and on in my head
It seems the last song that they heard was "Sweet Emotion"
It's cold, it's cold, it's cold, oh my friend Rico
It's cold, it's cold, it's cold, oh my friend Rico
(It gets colder as I touch his shoulder
It gets colder, and he'll get no older)
Yeah, in dreams I see his face, I recognize the place right next to dashboard Jesus.
