musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme, created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, where I focus on a song I absolutely love and feel needs to be shared.

Song: “A Song for the Deaf”
Artist: Queens of the Stone Age
Album: Songs for the Deaf (2002)

Lyrics taken from genius.com

[Spoken Intro: Natasha Shneider]
A song for the deaf, that is, for you

[Verse 1: Josh Homme]
Nobody’s coming down the hall
Nobody echoes in my head
Broken reflection, outta luck
Nobody ever needed it

[Chorus 1: Josh Homme, Mark Lanegan & Both]
I got what was
I want to take what’s left
(Ready now)

[Verse 2: Josh Homme]
Beautiful senses are gone
Canary in a gilded cage
Singin’
Sweet, soft and low
I will poison you all
Come closer, racin’ to your tongue

[Chorus 2: Josh Homme, Mark Lanegan & Both]
I got what was
Want to take what’s left
No talk
 will cure

What’s lost, or save what’s left
(For the deaf)

[Bridge: Mark Lanegan]
The blind can go get fucked
Lie beside the ditch
This halo ’round my neck
Has torn out every stitch

[Guitar Solo]

[Verse 3: Josh Homme & Mark Lanegan]
Who are you hiding? Is it safe for the deaf?
Beautiful cancer, infiltrate then forget
Yeah, I saw you coming and I heard not a thing
A mistake not to listen
When I knew where you’d been

[Chorus 2: Josh Homme, Mark Lanegan Both]
And I got what was
I want to take what’s left

No talk will cure
What’s lost, or save what’s left
(For the deaf)

[Spoken Outro: Dave Catching]
You’re listening to W.A.N.T, the high desert wonder valley favorite radio station. s’been a good night. Dave Catching here, not saying goodnight, just saying…

[Sung Outro: Queens of the Stone Age]
Ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaa
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaa
Ha ha ha ha, ha ha ha ha, HAH HAH HAAAH
Ha ha ha ha ha
