ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There are bands, and then there are groups. And The Frogs, from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just a short shot north of America's Midwest, are a fine group. These days being in a band means as much about perception as calculation, but there is little manipulation in this group because you see, The Frogs just are; point is they exist. They shouldn't really, because they are either too good for rock and roll, or too politically incorrect to matter. But they are one of the greatest rock groups to come out of the 20th century precisely because they are too good for rock and roll, and too smart to care about caring. Fine tunesmiths, they craft memorable hooks out quite readily before stomping on them because they dare to exist. Nothing is sacred, but the reverence is there for the unspeakable uncomfortability that is at the heart of merging electricity and feeling and commerce. They have neither won nor lost, they persist. Deal with them before they put you in their sights and deal with you by ignoring what you care about. Their agenda is clear; to love, but never in the way you love. Their love is strong, willful, and brutish. make a wish, and they can make it come true. - Billy Corgan

Lyrics :

THE SADDEST DAY

Ohh
It's a sad story I'll sing today
About the day when I caught
Aidsy aids a-i-d-s

Oh
The Tower was wet
Beneath my pants
Beneath the world
Beneath the universe
My kilting curls
The kilting ways beyond
My breasts were twinkling

Dawn was spreading it's lights
Across my chest
My chest was the best in the west

And I was a boy
This was the saddest day of another boy

THEY PROMISED ME THE WORLD :

Before all this I was told
Of your beauty I was to behold
Way before the womb
Of the time, the place and the room

They promised me the world
Then they took it all away
Now I've only got you
What can I say

Everything is right
Still the animals still roam the night
I could have had one of those
And I could have had a scratch or bite

I NEED TO KNOW (Petty)

Well the talk on the street
Says you might go solo
A good friend of mine
Saw you leavin' by your back door

I need to know, I need to know
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so
I need to know, I need to know
"Cause I don't know how long I can hold on
If you're makin' me wait, if you're leaden' me on
I need to know

Who would've thought that
You'd fall for his line
All of a sudden
It's me on the outside
I need to know
I need to know

NO ONE LIKES SEX

You know I'm not the only one girl
No no, no one likes sex
Agreed upon, take everything off
You're not gonna like it

Pay no attention to the blood
No no no, it's gonna be alright
When I kill you all the way

You know they don't even know
I'm out on the loose
So in case you fall in love, agree with me
No one likes sex

I made some xxx films
Turn turn turned me into a star
If you don't believe me
What's that oscar coin' on my mantel?

No no no, no one likes sex
No no no...

HOW MANY, TIMES, TIMES, TIMES

Oh how many times have I told you
To wear your pink triangle
We're goin' someplace special

How many times
How many times, times, times

How many tomes have I told you "I live You"
How many times have I told you "I need you"

How many times
How many times, times, times

5 times 2 equals 10 months t' live
After I caught aids that's all I had left
With my pink triangle

Times. times, times
How many times, times, times

Did they say "Don't do it"
But I said "I'll do what I want anyway"

EVERYONE PRETENDS

They're all alone
There is no air
This black and blue
We all must share

Everyone pretends
Everyone pretends
Nothing ever ends
Nothing ever ends

I brought you love
'twas always there
By breathing you
By breathing air

Everyone pretends
Everyone pretends
Nothing ever ends
Nothing ever ends

As if you don't
Don't really care
It's obvious
Beneath your stare

Everyone pretends
Everyone pretends
Nothing ever ends
Nothing ever ends

ALL THIS GREY

Who's to believe me
If I say I love you
Certainly not me

I woke up and the sky was drawn
I kissed your cheek but the artist was gone

Who left this grey
All this grey
All this grey

All you adore
Lives inside a canvas
Certainly not me

I woke up in the flower bed
Minus you and the sun what's left

All this grey
All this grey
All this grey

THE QUILT

When one is weak, one needs a hand
When one is cold, one needs some warmth
When one is one, one has the quilt and a name

When things get tough, one goes to sleep
When things get rough, one goes to weep
When time is up, one knits a name in the quilt

Guilty
The weight of the world isn't fair
All I have left is a lock of your hair

When one is gone, one comes again
When all along, one has a friend
Within our hearts, we all commend the quilt

Guilty
The weight of the world isn't fair
All I have left is a world that don't care

When one is weak, one needs a hand
When one is cold, one needs some warmth
When one is one, one has the quilt and a name

ENJOY

When the sun turns to tan, I'll take it like a man
When the sun turns to red, I'll return to bed

Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy
Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy

When the sun turns to grey, I'll restore the day
When the sun becomes black nothing will I lack

Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy
Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy

When the sun turns to green, It'll be a scene
When the sun turns to white, I'll create the night

Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy
Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy

When the sun turns to sin, who on earth will win?
When the sun turns to you, turn into a zoo

Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy
Disappear destroy magic luck enjoy

LAUGH

If there's a face I could make
I would make it
If this would make you laugh

Transfer my heart to frankenstein
'Cause this one's breakin'
And your smile turns me on

So go on and laugh
Laugh, laugh, laugh
Laugh

OUT OF LOVE

Is that the best you can do?
Looks like it
I'm not getting involved
"Cause I would slaughter you tonight

Out of love
Out of love
I'm out of love

Oh, my love I have too many feelings
I see
I'm not getting involved
"Cause I would slaughter you tonight

Out of love
Out of love
I'm out of love

Poisoned promises
Didn't go down good
Aborted dreams
And the garbage you stood by and stood for

Is that some new garbage on your arm?
Looks like it
I'm not getting involved
"Cause I would slaughter you tonight

Out of love
Out of love
I'm out of love

KISSED LIPS = HELL

All in all I've done well
I've kissed your lips, I've gone to hell
But every time I see a star or the moon
I've gone too far

Fireworks underground
Hummingbirds fly around
Nectar drips from my heart
There's a tale but it's too dark

She draws you in, she takes your eyes
She turns your bed into a butterfly
It's not just me, there's a spell
I've kissed your lips. I've gone to hell

YOU & I

It was hard for you
To come to the realization
I don't love you anymore
You can't go on
It's hard to function as a human being

Skid row's alright
But you never thought
You'd wake up here one night
You made new friends
They've got a thing for you when the evening ends

I said "You and I are no more"
I said "You and I never were"
You said "You and I had a chance"
I said "You and I had one dance"
That was all, that was all, that was all

LADY B.S.

When you sucked me off
Well, lady that was bullshit
When you cut off my jogging path
Well, lady that was bullshit

When your dog took a chunk out of my ass
When we took a splash in puget sound

When you pureed my balls in your mouth
Well, lady that was bullshit
When you made the Seattle sun come out
Well, lady that was bullshit

Don't you think that dog should be on a leash?
No, no, no, no, no

lady that was bullshit

MAY I HELP U

Your wrists are slashed in every direction
No note is needed, it's sort of a celebration

Down your throat went a handful of pills
Suddenly you recall you had not made out a will

The cliff is steep, you love the feeling of flying
You took a gun along, it seems you never stop trying'

Your snuff collection is interesting
If your next attempt doesn't work out
I'm a friend of yours, may I help you

SHE IS THE MOST

When I'm alone I understand
And in my mind I hold your hand
I close my eyes, I give myself to you

The moon is full, the stars are young
We have to dance, the time has come
I'll close the door, give yourself to me

And I love a girl, she is the most
And I love a girl, she is the most

How lucky I to have met you
You're pure of heart and so true blue
My lips are yours, I give myself to you

An angel did fall from the sky
To have met you, how lucky I
Sleep in my arms, give yourself to me

"Count Yer Blessingsz"
