Music I Never Get Sick of…

Standard

Let’s just say that my formative years (my twenty-somethings) were spent in the late 80s and 90s, so it’s no surprise that my early love of punk rock in the 70s and its thematic use of social alienation and apathy would appeal to me. Both I would consider my normal states of being, then and now. The Pumpkins had it all for me, with their heady blend of styles and aggressive lyrics. I’d be hard-pressed to pick a favorite album; I do have them all, but this is on the work commute menu for this week.

Mellon-Collie-and-the-Infinite-Sadness
“Stumbleine”

Boredoms in the bathroom shaking out the loose teeth
Sally’s in the stirrups claiming her destiny
And nobody nowhere understands anything
About me and all my dreams
Lost at sea
Jack it up judy set your heart alight
Mayfair mistress of the satellites
Misspent youth- faking up a rampage
To hold off the real slaves
Paid off and staid
And what you never knew
Can never get to you
So fake it
I’ll be your stumbleine
I’ll be your super queen
And make you
Jukebox fuckup hanging round the drugstore
No matter what you say he’ll be back for more
Mommy’s in the manger with the little kids
She’s got her reasons, got my forgets
Of tears and idle threats
Misplaced
And no matter what they do
They can’t get to you
So fake it
I’ll be your stumbleine
I’ll be your super queen
And make you me
Come around ruby I could never sleep alone
