Song of the Day

Today's Selection is...

"Fast Cars" from How To Dismantle an Atomic Bomb


It's too bad that when I bought HTDAAB, there was no version with this on it. If this song doesn't make you feel like you are in the middle of a desert in Mexico, something like the Vertigo video, then I have no clue what does. I think I heard 3 guitars in there at one point.
Plus it has the album title in it!
It's not as "rock" as the original verison, "Xanax and Wine". "Fast Cars" has that bullfight sense to it.

I see why it's not in the wide release of HTDAAB, as it really doesn't fit in the rest of the cd. I think "Xanax and Wine" would have fit in though...I actually prefer "Xanax and Wine" to "Fast Cars".

Image hosted by Photobucket.com Edge actually gets the "vocal" award in this song because the harmony/background vocals in this song are awesome.


My cell is ringing
No ID
I need to know who's calling

My garden's overgrown
I go out on my belly crawling
I got CCTV, pornography, CNBC
I got the nightly news
To get to know the enemy

All I want is a picture of you
All I want is to get right next to you
All I want is your face in a locket
Picture in my pocket
I take a pill to stop it

I know these fast cars
Will do me no good

I'm going nowhere
Where I am it is a lot of fun
There in the desert to dismantle an atomic bomb
I watch you shadow box
Check the stocks
I'm in detox
I want the lot of what you've got
What you've got can make this stop

All I want is a picture of you
All I want is to get right next to you
All I want is your picture in a locket
Your face in my pocket
Take a pill to stop it

I know these fast cars
Will do me no good

Child inside

Don't you worry 'bout your mind
Don't you worry 'bout your mind
Don't you worry 'bout your mind
Don't you worry 'bout your mind

You should worry 'bout the day
That the pain it goes away
You know I miss mine sometimes

The size is much too big

There is no fiction
That will truly fit the situation
I'm documenting every detail
Every conversation
Not used to talkin' to somebody in the body
Somebody in a body,
Somebody in a body

Any idea on what it's all supposed to mean?
