HAVE FAITH - THERE IS NO SECURITY LIKE POCKETS JINGLING

in #ripelast year (edited)

Faith No More were one of my favourite bands in the 90's, back when music was awesome, and totally unlike the pathetic lame bullshit that passes for music now.

I saw them in concert twice around 93. They kicked arse. Midlife Crisis is an all time great, from the album Angel Dust. Check out the lyrics - twisted genius.

Faith No More - Lyrics - "Midlife Crisis"

Go on and wring my neck
Like when a rag gets wet
A little discipline
For my pet genius

My head is like lettuce
Go on dig your thumbs in
I cannot stop giving
I'm thirty-something

Sense of security
Like pockets jingling
Midlife crisis
Suck ingenuity
Down through the family tree

You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you
You're only you
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleeding enough for two

It's a midlife crisis

What an inheritance
The salt and the Kleenex
Morbid self-attention
Bending my pinky back

A little discipline
A donor by habit
A little discipline
Rent an opinion

Sense of security
Holding blunt instrument
Midlife crisis
I'm a perfectionist
And perfect is a skinned knee

You're perfect, yes, it's true
But without me you're only you
You're only you
Your menstruating heart
It ain't bleeding enough for two

It's a midlife crisis

You're perfect, yes, it's true
(Go on and wring my neck)
(Like when a rag gets wet)
But without me you're only you
Your menstruating heart
(Go on and wring my neck)
(Like when a rag gets wet)
It ain't bleeding enough for two
