Bobby

Post by Castlevanyan » Wed Mar 15, 2017 8:08 am

Plagued in porn for many days
Tried and trained all my old waves
Spain won't drop out anytime
I give permission to lose my mind
Lots of hate, never knew she was
concentrated on the (?) curse
And I tell myself it's only time
before I fall or before I cry

Bob is all alone
Bobby's on the phone
Bob is always stoned
Bobby's on the phone

All I need is someone to hold
But first I need something like a soul
In just one minute, I will be
(???*)
Frustration complaced with me
Compose my hand, baby one I need
I believe that I'm strong enough to destroy
and the kids (?) at my house
One at a time

Bobby's out cold
Bob is gonna phone
Bob is always stoned
Bobby's on the phone


*Listening to this line on headphones I can hear him goof the vox on the left audio track, especially on the 1999 Underground and Cemetaries/Railroads mixes

I think that's near spot on! But I heard a few things differently;

Layed here for so many days
Tried and trained all my old waves My brain won't drop out anytime
I give permission to lose my mind
Lots of hate, never knew she was
concentrated on the right kind of curse
And I tell myself it's only time
before I fall or before I cry

Bobby's all alone
Bobby's on the phone
Bobby's always stoned
Bobby's on the phone

All I need is someone to hold
But first I need something that I console
In just one minute, I will be
Much less useful for you and me(?)
Frustration complaced with me
Compose my hand, with everyone I need
And I'm not even strong enough to destroy
and the kids (?) at my house
One at a time

Bobby's out cold
Bobby's on the phone
Bobby's always stoned
Bobby's on his phone

And I have no clue of that last 'verse' at the end
