The Dresden Doll - Brechtian punk cabaret band

i've been driving around town
with my head spinning around
everywhere i look i see
your '96 jeep cherokee
...
but with every jeep i see
my broken heart still skips a beat
i guess its just my stupid luck
that all of boston drives that same black fucking truck

 

The Jeep Song / the Dresden Dolls

i've been driving around town
with my head spinning around
everywhere i look i see
your '96 jeep cherokee

you're a bully and a clown
you made me cry and put me down
after all that ive been through
you'd think i'd hate the sight of you

but with every jeep i see
my broken heart still skips a beat
i guess its just my stupid luck
that all of boston drives that same black fucking truck

it could be him or am i tripping
and i'm crashing into everything
and thinking about skipping town a while
until these cars go out of style...

i try to see it in reverse
it makes the situation hundreds of times worse
when i wonder if it makes you want to cry
every time you see a light blue volvo driving by

so dont tell me that you're off to see the world
i know you wont get very far
dont call me if you get another girl baby
just call me if you get another car

the number of them is insane
every exit's an exboyfriend memory lane
every major street's a minor heart attack
i see a red jeep and i want to paint it black

it could be him or am i tripping
and i'm crashing into everything
i can't wait til you trade that fucker in
by then they will have stuck me in the looney bin

it could be him my heart is pounding
its just no use i'm surrounded
but someday i'll steal your car and switch the gears
and drive that cherokee straight off this trail of tears

 

נא להכיר (למי שעוד לא): הדרזדן דולז. להקה בוסטונית של שני אנשים, אמנדה פאלמר בשירה ופסנתר (וכתיבה) ובריאן ויגליוני בתופים. להקה שעושה מוזיקה קבארטית-Pאנקית, ומתנהגת בהתאם (לבוש, איפור). ללהקה יש אלבום אולפן אחד מ-2004 שנקרא כמו הלהקה.הטקסטים נעים בין הכואב (אהבות לא גמורות - ראו שיר הג'יפ למעלה) לאקסצנטריות (Girl Anachronism) וניתוק (Coin-Operated Boy). ללהקה אלבום קודם משנת 2003 של קטעים מהופעות, שאותו לא יצא לי לשמוע (בכלל, אני חושב שבהקלטה של הופע החיה יש משהו סותר), שהוא נקרא A is for Accident.

שווה לנסות, להשתדל להקשיב למילים, ועדיף בחדר אפלולי ומשרה דיכאון.
