Question about the lyrics

Postby Sapromind » Sun Sep 05, 2010 9:25 pm

Ok, god damn it \:o\\
I'm listening to "You'll Never Get to Me" right now. It always bothered me - after the first chorus - is it "I sighed in silence" or "I sat in silence"?\
I know, it's insignificant, but I want to know \:o\

Well, looking at your signature, I think you're a reliable source ;]

Actually the lyrics are in the liner notes of the CD and you can also search for them on the internet...

I know, but they differ everywhere. I never really trusted the 'official' ones, I don't think Jaz writes them \:o\

He probably has bad handwriting. I see a new thread here.\
\
Written lyrics that do not match up to what Jaz is singing;\
\
Millenium\
Invocation/Implosion- lyrics fused together I think from memory\
Love of the Masses( fookin awesome track).Lost mixes have a verse missing\
\
Any more he say's trying to detract from the current negativity.\
\
I heard that a book was coming out with all the KJ lyric's in. I just cannot see Jaz remembering\
all the words where they are not written on the album sleeve.

Yeah, also first two lines of Gratitude do not match the ones from the CD booklet.

Huh that's wierd. I'd like to see the official book of lyrics and maybe some background or meaning to some of them.

That'd be great if indeed Jaz was the one who wrote everything down. I'm afraid writing down lyrics for booklets etc. must be the job for some poor guy from the record company who doesn't even have access to Jaz's handwritings and has to type things the way he is hearing.
