PostSubject: Autism Vaccine Blues   28.09.13 22:35

My attempt to write down the lyrics, please correct what seems wrong to you Smile

I got texts flying in and missed calls on my phone
I got debt collectors that won#t leave me alone
I got a cricket for a conscience, I can't shoo away
I got the blood of the lamb over my doorway, oh no
Oh No oh no oh no
Oh No oh no oh no

That little pill made me well, now I feel everything
I hear Doubting Thomas, the song that he sings
I see the screens that we worship, the holes they don't fill
I smell the sweat on her neck, it's how I know I could kill, oh no
Oh No oh no oh no
Oh No oh no oh no

Bless me Father, I have sinned
Have you seen the shape I'm in?
The cure has opened up my eyes
But now I can't pray away
These autism vaccine blues
I've got autism vaccine blues

They said "take this to relax, it'll keep you calm"
They said the tumour would shrink, before it killed my Mum
I called to tell you I love you, would you please hold the line?
I go to the altar and I wait for a sign

The car wont charge, and the phone's outta gas
The gulf's on fire, full of plastic trash
There's a lump in my chest, the bees are in my head
I never wondered before if I'd be better off, oh no
Oh No oh no oh no
Oh No oh no oh no
Oh No oh no oh no
Oh No oh no oh no

Bless me Father, I have sinned
Have you seen the shape she's in?
The vampire squid sucked me dry
And now I can't pray away
These autism vaccine blues

Texts flying in
The holes wont fill
The sweat on her neck's is how I know I could kill
I called to tell you I love you
Bees are in my head, I never wondered before if I'd be BETTER OFF DEAD!

So bless me Father, I have sinned
Have you seen the shape I'm in?
The cure opened up my eyes
But now I can't pray away
These autism vaccine blues
I got autism vaccine blues

I got autism vaccine blues

And for future references here is what Dave had to say about the song:

Hause has this to say about the song: "'Autism Vaccine Blues' is obviously a loaded title, and I've received quite a few questions about the song's intent over the last year of playing it live, so I'm thankful to be able to explain it a bit here.

"The title itself is something I've had for a while. Between thinking of the title and writing the song, the myth was basically debunked that autism developed from vaccinations given to children. I wanted to still use the title and wanted to examine the irony that in the future we may end up with a vaccine that cures autism. It got me wondering whether the people who had been stricken with the disorder, upon being cured, would prefer to go back to their former state after being awakened and subjected to all of the complications and stress of life in America. The song is written from the perspective of someone who has been recently cured of autism and isn't so sure they are ready and willing to cope with all that we have to offer here in modern society. I'm not so sure I am either.

Good work with the lyrics! I caught only a couple mistakes (I believe) that I thought I'd point out.

- "I can't shoot away" should be "I can't SHOO away"
- "I hear Dylan Thomas" should be "I hear DOUBTING Thomas" (it's a religious reference)
-(this is small) "This autism vaccine blues" should be "THESE autism vaccine blues"
-"As I open up my chest, visa in my hand" should be "There's a lump in my chest, the bees are in my head"

I really can't figure out the word that you left blank either! I'm gonna keep trying though, we're bound to get it eventually Smile

Oh and this American doesn't agree with how you spelled "mom" or "Tumor" Razz

Thanks, Shelby. What you wrote down made much more sense and I changed it Smile

It's very hard to understand. Let's see if we can find out what he sings before the album is out Wink

Since the song is written by an American I should probably change it, right? Wink

thought of this, too. And i think this would make sense: it was on fire when bp had this accident in the gulf of mexico and everybody knows the oceans are "full of plastic trash". but who knows Very Happy

Haha I'm listening to it right now and I was like "Gulf! yes that's it!" so I jumped on here but it looks like you guys beat me to it! I'm 99.9% sure we're all right and it's Gulf.
