Favorite Love Battery Lyrics

Post by incessantmace » Fri Jan 20, 2012 4:35 am

First of all: it really sucks that there's seemingly no way to get these guys' lyrics. (Or maybe I'm too dumb to find them on the net.)

Anyway, what are your favorite Battery lyrics?

I'll start with some of my faves:

"Your dreams are all out of focus / knock you up when you're feeling down / all the world seems so unreal..."

"If it wasn't me it'd be somebody else"

"I sink and rise nowhere"

"Unusually far gone." (this is one of my most favorite song quotes evarrr!)

EDIT: Okay, now I have listened to some and this line really stands out to me

I feel like the world could explode right now and I'd be happy

"If it wasn't me it'd be somebody else" is my ever favorite!

"Freedom's right between the eyes" -this one is all deep n shit.

"Got drunk and lost my paisley shirt
it was the only one I could find"-this one is pretty silly

"I wish I could change this hollow body"-iunno, this was very relatible (relatible?) when I was sick. When I couldn't eat I had the worst feeling in my stomach, along with all the physical pain, but the feeling of an empty stomach for days, weeks, months, and then years just makes you feel "hollow."

"I bet you could care less
or you're desperate as me"-I can't even explain this one.

"I wish I could change this immune system..."-story of my life in this one simple sentence.

"Beside your mind in the summer heat"-I find this adorable.

"It's nothin that I want
it's nothin that I need
it's nothin you can touch" -this is just amazing. It's like, when you're in a mental funk or something, and you know you're missing something in your life, but what you're searching for isn't tangible. You can't buy it. You can't make it. You can't even hold it. It's something outer-worldly that you need to find for yourself. Or within yourself. (DEEP, I know.)

"Unusually far gone
I'm beginning to pull right through
The knob of the wishing chair??
and break through the anesthesia
the doctor says we're all here"-Another sick-related favorite. When I FINALLY got home from the hospital after my surgery, and after going back to the E.R. I laid on the couch for 3 straight days. I was so drugged. Everything was slow and spinning, and I was so weak I literally couldn't move. I needed help walking to the bathroom, it was that pathetic. It was like I wasn't in my own body, but I was still seeing through my own eyes. I couldn't feel a thing except for numbness and pain (I know, how contradictory. Trust, it makes sense.) So I guess I was really "far gone."




Also, does anyone know what they're saying in hollow body when they're like:

"I wish I could change this hollow body, was...........?once a destroyer that's ultra fine???? Is that even it? That's what I hear anyways.

Also also, this is an amazing thread! I like :3
The Jeevies. It's a feeling you get.

Awesome choices, Evee. Love Battery is such a great and underrated band, I just can't see why anybody wouldn't love them.

^This, as well as "I could blow the stars right out of your eyes", "I can't stand it when you wear that dress", "Half past you is my new point of view", and "Your dreams are all out of focus, knock you up when you're feeling down, and all the world seems so unreal"

I actually have all of those written on my shoes, a trend I hope to keep with me my whole life with each new pair of shoes.

These two hit home right now.

I'm gonna get a "Notice my pain can swim, I'm drowning in the words it brings" tattoo, it kind of sums up my whole life.

Things like "By the way,does your face show traces/ did you walk on water" and "I've seen the minds of this generation, totally taking, screaming hysterical" always cross my mind when I think of either Love Battery lyrics or this generation :)
I'd probably have to post the whole Brazil and Punks Want Rights lyrics aswell :D

Could maybe anybody try and post full lyrics for some songs? :)

I really hope they seriously put out a record this spring or at least year. And if they do I hope they're open to coming to somewhere close.. I would pay the flight and everything just to have one Love Battery live experience :D
