Title: Your blessened lyrics!
Post by: klump on September 11, 2003, 10:11:08 AM
what are the lyrics to this beatiful song????


the only thing I understand is :

     -Your blessened-

womans only distant relative,
has  descended on its own,
you know,
womans only distant relative,
has  descended on its own,
you know,

your blessened,
I can feel your pain,
your man like your friendly
your ???????

i like your hands,
mr cancelled see(cows reference?)

------------------do any of you have thoughts around this song and maybe have a clue what its about?

(and also i want to add that i think eye flys is inspired p

I don't think it's about anything.  I think Buzz wrote the lyrics arbitrarily, without any redeeming meaning.  Don't get me wrong, the song is really good.

I actually agree with you on that, he writes his lyrics so abstract that almost everybody can draw something from it and see things ,but i just have a feeling about that song... i dont know,hehe im a total retard :oops:

And i never thought about the dazed and confused thing. I don't think they had it in mind when they wrote it, but its kina similar.

HAHa, funny, i was just gonna say "But unlike led zeppelin, the melvins don't use that song to make some 20 minute wank jam"

But they do with collosus. oy vey!

I don't think that it was a Cows reference.  The Cows album with the song Mr. Cancelled came out a few years after Bullhead, if I'm not mistaken.  But maybe the Cows played it live a few years before they recorded it or something.  I'm not really sure.

This is how I always screamed along to it, one of my all time top 5  Melvins tunes.


WHEN MAN'S ONLY DISTANT RELATIVE HAS DESECENDED ON HIS THRONE
YOU WILL KNOW

It works for me!

Love blacksanta

If Ipecac rereleases Bullhead, it would be cool if lyrics came with it.  But I don't think they'll have lyrics.  They'll probably have liner notes from Buzz in the insert (like Gluey and 26 songs), which is cool too.



By the way, is Bullhead going to be rereleased on Ipecac?

They decided the Melvins were Dead to Themâ„¢ after they changed genres to barbershop when they brought the Big Business guys on

Or maybe they just don't know the band is still around. I was wearing a Melvins shirt out a couple weeks ago and this middle-aged guy stopped me on the street to talk about how back in the 80s and early 90s, the Melvins and Meat Puppets were his two all-time favorite bands and that he wonders whatever happened to the Melvins. His mind was blown when I told him they were still making music and that I got that shirt at a show a few blocks from where he was standing like a year earlier. So I guess it's possible?
