sonic youth - the empty page



the words to the song:

these are the words
but not the truth
god bless them all
when they speak to you

but that’s all right
on an empty stage
sing out when
there’s no other way

come drift the town
where secrets lie
where friends & neighbors
keep drifting by

but that’s all right
you’re here to stay
sing out tonight
the empty page

i always thought i’d see
your name in flashing light
you did it all for free girl
& freely ripped the night
(yr free to fight)

these are the words
but not the truth
god bless them all
when they speak to you

but that’s all right
you’re here to stay
sing out tonight
the empty page

do you remember the time
when you were new in town
you smashed yr head in the mirror baby
and kissed the frozen ground
(yr ripped up sound)

the empty page has wasted down
the empty page is ripped
the empty page will waste this town
the empty page has slipped
