Description
This is another Ex-Kings song. It turned out the best out of all the songs we recorded. Lyrically it's a mess and the song is essentially meaningless. We wanted the riff to be the focus and the lyrics to just kind of be background noise.

Lyrics
I Don't Know © 2007

Heart attack. No empty promise shall prevail
Dirty cash. Redemption comes from what you sell
Take it back and burn this soulless effigy
Paint it black and turn this house in to debris
I don't know. I don't know. I don't know
Why I'm feeling so spread thin.
I don't know. I don't know. I don't know
Why I'm feeling so spread thin.
I don't know I don't know I don't know, mama
I don't know.

Take it back. You'll never get what you put in.
Watch your back. They're gonna tear you limb from limb
It's like a holy war that no one cares enough to fight.
Give me more cause I don't care who's wrong or right.I don't know. I don't know. I don't know
Why I'm feeling so spread thin.
I don't know. I don't know. I don't know
Why I'm feeling so spread thin.
I don't know I don't know I don't know, mama
I don't know.

Take it back, etc.

I don't know, etc.

I do know I like it. Its got such great energy. The riff rocks and the vocals add great flavor. The sound on the bass is excellent. Nice and edgy.

Thanks, LL
I'm not all that comfortable with writing rock songs so it's good to hear that this doesn't come off like Kathie Lee trying to rock out. Thanks!

bass sound
Thanks. The bass really holds it together. You can thank my drummer for that idea. Originally it was just a mess of guitar doing the riff. I'm glad and flatter that you liked it. Thanks for coming by!

bass
You're the third person to comment on the bass... which is great. I think you're dead on about that. The bass focuses the listener in on the riff and hopefull inspires them to get in to the song. Thanks for stopping by and for listening!

i dont know
i listened to this yesterday and it's still in my head, so i thought i'd better come back. great song and super catchy (I don't know I don't know I don't know, mama
I don't know!) and rocking. Reminds me of The Hives and The Vines too. Youve tapped into something very current with this and imo could be a big hit if the 'right' ears listen. please keep posting more like this I LOVE it! faved and downloaded.

Looks like this song has earned a superfan! :). This is going to sound like a kiss ass comment, but I think the right ears are listening to it. I appreciate your comments and your coming to listen, but above all I appreciate your zeal!

I like the guitar
This song has a cool Fugazi feel to it. Pop with a good fuzzy guitar. Like it.

great feedback sound on the intro.
Reminds me of The Hives. I LIKE it.... good hook -' I don't know', to me that phrase is totally on the mark - for everyone. Lyrically sound. Quality.

The feedback is actually a keyboard (B) run through a Tweak Fuzz pedal. It does add a little extra. I'm glad you liked it!

Got the blood going!
If a tune can get this 43-year old dude to bang his head a little, then it has to be terrific! Nice song! Love the groove and the energy--and as others have said, the "I don't know" fits beautifully with the frenetic pace of the song. Glad I caught this!

Thanks!
I'm glad you found it, too. I'm pretty self-conscious about the lyrics because they were changed at the last minute and don't make a lot of sense. On purpose, but still I get a lot of "What does this song mean" from friends. "uh.. nothing". At least it works!

Spread thin
The lyrics on this are great actually, even when pushed so far back. Great licks, tenuous breaks. This would have been great on the CBGB's challenge a few weeks ago. Lots of rpm's to spare. Love it.

I really want to get involved with the challenges, but finding time to commit to a project is kind of rare these days. I'm thinking of doing the challenges anyway - just for fun. We'll see. Thanks for listening and I'm glad you dug it.

VERY NICE
This song is AMAZING. I'm in love with the bass line. Like. you have no idea. This is a very good song! I love the sound you get! It sounds a lot like the Hives, but then at the same time it doesn't..

Love this song!

Beef-A-Roni
I love the beefy riff. You accomplished the task you set out on, but the vocals are nothing close to background noise. I downloaded this a while ago and just never made the time to comment.

For some strange reason, I think of Leonard Graves Phillips - the lead singer for the Dickies when I hear this song. The vocals are fantastic and very expressive.
