Lyrics
I don't like your mother
She’s getting kind of fat.
I don’t like your father.
Like, where’d he get that hat?

Everybody wants to be a rockstar.
Everybody wants to climb up into the sky.
I come running, every time you leave your door ajar,
and there you lie.

I don’t like your brother.
He always wears a cape.
And I don’t like your sister.
She lied about the rape.

And it’s not just you
who finds it reprehensible,
that I should fly above,
like a kite.
Its not my view that’s so indefensible.
It’s just my plight.


I don’t like the mystery,
or when it falls at night,
and just because it’s history,
well it doesn't make it right.

Everybody, thinks it’s disgusting,
to watch a man fall so far.
It’s my body
and my brain is rusting.
It’s so bizarre.

Alternate/additional Lyrics:

I don’t like your picture
or why you left it there.
And just because I miss you,
well it doesn't mean I care.

Everybody thinks that you’re lonely
when you telephone, late at night.
Don’t be frightened, no I didn’t come here only
for a bite.

I don’t like the monkeys,
that gather on the shore.
They’re acting just like junkies
and they’ve taken things before.

Everybody wants to climb into the boat.
Even though, I’ve never sailed.
You were shivering, when I handed you my coat.
And still I failed.

I don’t like the movies
Things always move too fast.
And I don’t like the actors.
But can you tell me where they cast?

Everybody thinks its amazing,
to watch the moon fill the dark.
your mouth is closed, but your eyes are still gazing
its such a lark

Troy-esque
When it comes to listing things you don't like, its hard to write a short
song. I liked the "cape" and "boat" stanzas, several other lyric details. In
a song this long, tho, it may be better to have sections where you can use
a different register, just for variation (and I like the hints of a lower voice
you let slip now and then). And the multiple instrumental breaks didn't
bother me so much except the drumming was often not precisely in sync
and the melody had a randomness to it the didn't speak to me as clearly
as I wanted. Nonetheless, I like this piece, altho I think a second run at it
might yield a tighter track.

Thoughts
It's a good song. The lyrics are filled with mystery -- what's he getting
at here? What's that a reference too? etc. -- and your singing has a
haunting quality that really suits the song. The only suggestion I have
for the lyrics is that they might be a bit too difuse; I read the alternate/
additional lyrics, and they all seem good, so the question is, which do
you use, which do you leave out? For my taste, it might have been
good to have a little more continuity between verses... right now they
feel like they're referencing a whole collection of dissatisfactions, and,
as Tobin, says, it's kind of hard to cover ALL the things we feel
disaffected by in one song, so maybe a little more of a focus might
help? Not sure. Also, it sounds a bit like "Loosing my Religion," by
R.E.M., so if you come back to this, you might want to look at changing
things up a bit so it's less similar. Very tastefull guitar solos. The
rhythm guitar strumming slightly loose feeling, which may have been
intentional, but I personally would have liked it to be a little tighter,
rhythmically. But very intriguing song, to be sure, and please do more!
