lyrics

When you go to bed and lights extinguish
(When you go to bed and lights extinguish)
When you're all tucked in—watch the world vanish—
(When you're all tucked in—watch the world vanish—)
Evil thoughts come and play around in your skull

When your body's tense and perspiring
(When your body's tense and perspiring)
When you're left alone with hateful things
(When you're all alone with evil things)
You've never known your mind could be so full

Go to sleep
Darling Lee
Hush—rest—
Feel me

When you go to bed and lights extinguish
(When you go to bed and lights extinguish)
When the thin nails pound in your flesh
(When the thin nails pound in your flesh)
You've never known an appetite so cruel

When you close your eyes and feel your thoughts dancing
(When you close your eyes and feel your thoughts dancing)
When they make your life sick and rancid
(When they make your world sick and rancid)
You've surrendered to their ugly rule

Can't you feel better?
Don't you feel better?
Won't you feel better?
Don't you feel better?

Hop in the shredder
Ceaseless endeavor
Lonely together
No one gets better
No one gets better

Go to sleep
Darling Lee
Hush—rest—
Feel me
Forget such things
That make you grieve
Give me your lips
And speak

Pale People Missoula, montana

Take an embittered music school dropout. Add two spoonfuls of faintly balding neurotic. Add heaping handfuls of dark-eyed love prince. Add antidepressants, a piano, small noisy crowds, unsatisfying sex, a wheelchair, a lamp. The band is called Pale People, and one of their songs contains this phrase: "Fetish food play--babysitter wet dream." ... more
