Show Me

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

Oh yes... :D ... all is possible until we have a definite version from the band.

And even then, lyrics are always open to adjustments in live performances
depending on circumstances, which I think is a good and healthy thing.

When did you last write a new song?

The last time I decided definitively that a song was finished and untouchable was 2010. I’ve written a lot since then, but I’m still tinkering with them. I like to tinker. With computers, information is much more fluid now. A file is infinitely modifiable. So it’s a bit hard to decide when something’s finished. That fluidity does tempt me to be very absorbed with tinkering, which I find a very fulfilling process in itself.
Interview from 2016...so we maybe shouldn't hold our breath for finished lyrics just yet ;D

Do we have any idea what that supposedly finished song he's talking about is?
Far parade, perhaps? Hahaha

Show me has been stuck in my head all week.

At the risk of ruining this song for everyone....
On the flight home from Brizzy I dozed off and was sort of singing Show Me in my head, but someone was watching a gardening thing on their Ipad in front of me and now I keep singing "Show me Monty Don."

I am sorry. :oops:

Was listening to this the other day and it occurred to me "Barbie Rock and Roll" might also refer to our new Australian member. Barbequed rock n roll, who could that be?

And we have the livenews page with the lyrics:


SHOW ME (2020)

Show me isolation
Show me disintegration
Show me reality
Show me stupid on tv
Show me pop music
Barbie rock and roll
Show me in translation
Show me on the doll

We have love
Like love
We have love like love
We have it simulated

Show me isolation
Show me disintegration
Show me your reality
Show me stupid on tv
Show me your pop music
Barbie rock and roll
Show me in translation
Show me on the doll
