Objectivity lyrics

1. OBJECTIVITY

First of all, I wake up up up up up
In pain, muscle strain from hours of inactivity
Try to crawl to my feet, standing up up up
My brain is same this morning as it was last night
I dunno what my problem is
I dunno what my problems are
Need a goal, take a stroll

Objectivity lays right next to me
Got to do it right, got to do it alright
Subjectivity rolls on top of me
Not a fair fight, not an equal opportunity
Ah, say ah
Objectivity positively you you you you

Now it's time to smoke up up up up up
Nicotine comin' clean comfort shower sensitivity
Try to climb to the top, moving up up up
My day will be the same as yesterday and tomorrow
I dunno what my problem is
I dunno what my problems are
Need a goal, take a stroll up up up up up up up

Objectivity lays right next to me
Got to do it right, got to do it alright
Subjectivity rolls on top of me
Not a fair fight, not an equal opportunity
Ah, say ah
Objectivity positively you you you you

It's a crime how I mess up up up up up
Each day disobey the rules of this festivity
Try to grow but I know I'm fuckin' up up up
My future is so useless, it's a past due bill
I dunno what my problem is
I dunno what my problems be
Need to try not to die die die die

Objectivity lays right next to me
Got to do it right, got to do it alright
Subjectivity rolls on top of me
Not a fair fight, not an equal opportunity
Ah, it's a crime
Objectivity
Objectivity

2. NORWAY

I had a quick lunch, then I drove off
It was a very bizarre departure from your house
The weather was beautiful
I stopped to call you and you said yes
You were nevertheless optimistic of our love,
but

When you're not around me, I get blue
I can't begin describing it to you, no
I feel a kind of invisible pain
Without you there's no reasonable gain
Norway Norway Norway

I've begun to dwell in misery
If only it was you that I could see, though
I feel a kind of unthinkable fear
There's no desire to live without you here
Norway Norway Norway

I'm eating breakfast all by myself
It is a typically bland existence without you
Filling the coffee cup

1978 r.stevie moore - h.p. music (ascap)


3. LOVE IS DEAD, PAL

My ears are ringing, my ears are ringing
My voice is singing, what are you bringing?
Love is dead, pal
Don't you kid yourself, it's over
It's over your head, pal
You're below it

Questions? Comments?
Love is dead, pal
That's what I said

My heart is stinging, my eyes are stinging
My voice is singing, my mouth is drinking
Love is dead, pal
Don't you kid yourself, it's over
It's over your head, pal
You're without it

Questions? Comments?
Love is dead, pal
You're my pen pal.

5. TOM WASTED

Tom Wasted (tick tock tick tock)
Tom Wasted (tick tock tick)
Tom Wasted (tick tock tick tock)
Tom Wasted (tick tock tick)

Have you seen Geraldine?
She just walked out on my scene
I must've yelled a little too loud for her ears
I was angry at how she showed no passion about
Makin' love like we used to do

Seduction, really? Tom Wasted
Touchy feely, Tom Wasted
In my Austin Healy, non-tasted
No sex to be had, so goodbye.

Have you seen Geraldine?
She just walked out on my scene
I must've yelled a little too loud for her ears
But I was angry at how she showed no passion about
Makin' love like we used to do

Seduction, really? Tom Wasted
Touchy Feely, Tom Wasted
In my Austin Healy, non-tasted
No sex to be had, so goodbye.

Gerri once was a hot
Little girl on my lot
I must've felt a little too much for her touch
Cause I was angry at how she showed no passion about
Makin' love like we used to do

Seduction, really? Tom Wasted (tick tock tick tock)
Touchy Feely, Tom Wasted (tick tock tick tock)
In my Austin Healy, non-tasted (tick tock tick tock)
No sex to be had, so goodbye. (tick tock tick)
No sex to be had, so goodbye. (tick tock tick)
No sex to be had, so goodbye.

6. GOD SONG

What on Earth are you doing, God?
Is this some sort of joke you're playing?
Is it cause we didn't pray?
Well I can't see the point of the word
Without the action
Are you just hot air, breathing
Over us and over all?
Is it fun watching us all?
Where's your son? We want him again!

And next time you send your boy down here
Give him a wife and a sexy daughter
Someone we can understand
Who's got some ideas we can use,
Really relate to
We've all read your rules, tried them
Learnt them in school, then tried them
They're impossible rules, and you've made us look fools
Well done, God, but now please...

Don't hunt me down, for Heaven's sake!
You know that I'm only joking, aren't I?
Pardon me I'm very drunk!
But I know what I'm trying to say, and it's nearly night time
And we're still alone, waiting
For something unknown, still waiting
So throw down a stone, or something!
Give us a sign, for Christ's sake!

1973 robert wyatt/phil miller


7. WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW

It's a surging notion playing
Where we are right now
No use dwelling on the past of
Where we are right now
Simply be as it was, as if
Now was the only point that mattered

Time has played a hand in being
Where we are right now
Fate we move into forward motion
Where we are right now

("so much for melody!
and now, segregate the simple sexes!"
"how many sexes are there?"
"2"
"it's not enough, i say!")

It's a surging notion playing
Where we are right now
The essence of it all beckons a happy glow
Where we are right now
To let the mind simply be
As if now was the only point that mattered

1996 r.stevie moore/krys olsiewicz - spunky monkey music (ascap)
