my taste has become cumbersome

Everything is different when you've got a good buzz going. There's no such thing as a bad song. I'll sing to anything, basically.

Right now, Everclear's Santa Monica is on. I always hated Everclear and that freaky looking Art guy. But with a few Swirlspice drinks under my belt, and the giddiness of it being the Friday of a very free weekend, I catch myself singing along, happily.

I wonder if I'll still want to sing it when I'm not half in the bag.

See, the thing about Friday night blogging is, no one is listening, so I can just sit here and talk to myself while my husband shoots rubberbands at me.

I'm livin' large, I tell ya.

Ohh, here's a song I like even when I'm sober.

She calls me Goliath [corrected] then I wear the David mask
I guess the stones are coming too fast for her now
You know, I'd like to believe this nervousness will pass
All the stones that are thrown are building up a wall

I have become, cumbersome to this world
I have become, cumbersome to my girl

I'd like to believe we could reconcile the past
Resurrect those bridges with an ancient glance
But my old stone face can't seem to break her down
She remembers bridges and burns them to the ground

I have become, cumbersome to this world
I have become, cumbersome to my girl

Too heavy, too light, too black or too white
Too wrong or too right, damn tonight
Cumbersome
Too rich or too poor, she's wanting me less
And I'm wanting her more
The bitter taste is cumbersome
No, yeah, no no no, yeah...

There is a balance between two worlds
One with an arrow and a cross
Regardless of the balance, life has become cumbersome

Too heavy, too light, too black or too white
Too wrong or too right, damn tonight
Cumbersome
Too rich or too poor, she's wanting me less
And I'm wanting her more
The bitter taste is cumbersome
No, yeah, no no no, no no no, yeah, no no no, yeah...

Your life has become cumbersome

Great song! I'm pretty sure the first line is "She calls me Goliath" though. It doesn't make sense the way you have it, unless it's some weird Laurence Simon reference ;-)

You're not the only one stuck at home. And I can't even get drunk because I have to go pick up my sex toy (wife) later.

I took those comments off of a site...maybe I'll just change it to monkey.

There was a time when I liked Everclear.
Then I saw them live - they have to be one of the worst live bands I have ever heard. I mean, they sound like a third-rate cover band that doesn't even know the songs very well.

The first time I saw them in person was back when Santa Monica was out as a single. It was atrocious, but I thought that possibly they just had an off-night. Last winter I saw them again at a multi-band show in Dallas (I went to see the Donnas), and if anything they were even WORSE.

They're so bad live, I guess it's possible they're doing it on purpose. Maybe they're trying to prove that they're really punk, and they just do the records to make money. If so, someone needs to let them know that sounding like shit isn't punk, it's just idiotic.

If they really are that bad, then I'd say they must have one helluva producer.

Nope. you're both wrong. Though Ian is closer... "HE calls me Goliath and I wear the David mask"

My friend Nate's band used to cover a few Seven Mary Three tunes, and I used to sit in on their rehearsals. I have those lyrics burnt clean into my mind... its also the song I lost my virginity to...

I looooooove that song, I hate Everclear !!
