I got a girl over here and she is telling me I gotta live for eleven more years I got a girl over there and she is telling me That girl doesn’t know shit about that I got a girl over here and she is telling me We’re gonna live forever baby I got a girl over there and she is telling me Die motherfucker die motherfucker still fool Girl over here Check out the girl over here, she feels positive The future is ours for the making baby Look at the girl over there, she says its relative And anyone who talks about the future is an idiot But look at the girl over here, she says the other girl Is such a great example of a lost soul in this world Then look at the girl over there, she’s done talking She’s punching with her fists, yelling with her mouth God damn! Girl over here I love the girls, I love the girls (They are not girls, don't call them girls) Who tell me that everything’s wrong Who tell me I can’t play along Who want me to go straight to hell Who ask me to feed them as well But I am still working on this I deserve more than one kiss I need the girls who will hold me and smile And then tell me that things will be great all the while

Oh my god Look at him Let’s find a box To put you in And over here She’s a no You must be kiddng Come on let’s go It isn’t deep No one’s a creep It’s just some people can’t attract it when they try to compete With all the charm Of draper’s arm When you’re too perfect there is never any cause for alarm If you’re not fly Don’t even try ‘Cause you’ll get busted and untrusted like a bad fucking guy It’s just a law Say what I saw I tried to suck it but it stuck inside the teeth of my craw To be is beautiful But when you try to name it all It’s just an ugly mating call (Beautiful today) And even more Here’s what I swore That I would never be a left and then a right and swipewhore But then I see It isn’t me Not what you call it,I am only not to be or to be I’ll rise above I’ll try to love And all the words they decompose as soon as push come to shove We made it up Completely fucked Am I the only fucking person here who knows how to duck? To be is beautiful But when you try to name it all It’s just an ugly mating call Nah nah nah nah nah nah… an ugly, an ugly, an ugly

Then everybody fell asleep All of these people prayed their souls to keep Nobody saw that it was beautiful They were dutiful in their worship of the sheep

Today you are a baby With sabre sharp teeth You pick it up with your mouth and you Throw it around, get on the ground Bang bang, rattle and pound Kiss like a cobra, we understand Turn every boy to a man with your five foot heels Five foot heels—you tower over Five foot heels—in perfect composure I’m your meal—unfriendly takeover I’m all under your fashion Roll that rule of attraction I don’t know how you do but I do hope you’re not through with me Today I woke up hazy Forget what I knew Then I looked up from my feet at my Head in the sky, didn’t know why How’d I get so high?? Then I remembered you and your plan Be so much more than a man in my five foot heels Five foot heels—I tower over Five foot heels—in perfect composure I’m unreal—no need to show her This might sound weird but I am losing my fear just Worrying less about you and Do whatever I do Just me Five foot, five foot heels Five foot heels (Lonely at the top)

Little people, little people don’t need remembering Little people, little people won’t heed the slandering Little people are not even little people Let’s just put it all aside and be big for tonight All you people are all right Magic people, magic people aren’t crazy hard to find Giant people, giant people right beside you and behind Every people has it: blood, sweat, and magic Now that we are grown let’s pretend all the time Let’s ascend to the divine Who gives a shit how little we are? Little people, little people Oh...

I am not waiting! Mick Jagger you look pretty good And its well understood that you’re relevant still But if you were not twenty with lips that kill And you were never fucking famous you’d be shopping goodwill Mick Jagger Dave Gilmour you sound pretty great I don’t care what you ate but at this very late date If you weren’t super fetching when Pink was new You’d be playing in my mother’s fucking basement too Dave Gilmour Hey! ya ya ya ya Hey! ya ya ya I take a car Bobby is driving And David Lee handles my calls I’m a star If none of them was Then none of them is And it’s my turn now Paul McCartney the songs you write now are terrible How can you be the same person who wrote Yesterday? I know it’s not today But let’s just say you’d be hard pressed to play In the subway Brian Wilson can’t sing anymore And I sure do adore but I also abhor it When they wheel you onto the festival stage To see you I would not pay minimum wage Brian Wilson Hey! ya ya ya ya Hey! ya ya ya Caviar! On a plate Ray is serving to Mick Who carries my five-foot boots I’m a star If none of them was Then none of them is And it’s my turn now

All hail the opening band They do what they can to survive Don’t fail your opening hand The back row will skin you alive And then we walked into the room Like co-conspirators shuffling to our doom And then all the ladies, they stopped right in their tracks And tried to comprehend the thrill that crept right up their backs All hail the opening band They do what they can to survive Don’t fail your opening stand The left half will boil you alive Let’s pretend Every one of you has come for this display And maybe then Stick around to watch Hall & Oates play All hail the opening band They do what they can to survive Don’t fail your opening hand The front row will eat you alive

Faux Tuff 04:30
What once had passed as bravado, in a way Was now exposed as a cancer on the world We all were there, but it doesn’t hurt to say That you could find new ways to show your stuff Hey hey hey I show my stuff You wanna see who’s hard? I wanna see who’s fluff Can’t swing a dick if you don’t have a dick And even with a dick what’s the point of swinging it? So rough, you’re faux tuff Sho nuff, faux tuff Cash me ousside, wanna go wanna go? One for the funny but two I gotta blow Blow a puff, throw stuff So rough, Faux tuff Save the drama for your mama You handle grace like a war between the states Can’t eat your manna if you’re always saving face No love, faux tuff Ro ruff, ro ruff What did I say You said what did I say You say I say it one more time I’ll make your fucking day You go buff, you’re faux tuff That’s enough Why don’t we all stand Naked in a crowd No tuffs aloud Singing out loud? Loud left loud, yeah Loud right loud, yeah Loud front loud, yeah Loud back loud, yeah Loud balls loud, yeah Loud tits loud, yeah Loud hard loud, yeah Loud soft loud, yeah Quiet tuff much much tuffer than loud tuff

It's criminal There ought to be a law Criminal There ought to be a whole lot more You get nothin' for nothin' Tell me who can you trust We got what you want And you got the lust If you want If you want blood, you got it Blood on the streets Blood on the rocks Blood in the gutter Every last drop You want blood You got it Yes you have It's animal Livin' in the human zoo Animal The shit that they toss to you Feelin' like a Christian Locked in a cage Thrown to the lions On the second page If you want blood, you got it Blood on the streets Blood on the rocks Blood in the gutter Every last drop You want blood You got it O positive If you want If you want blood, you got it I want it, I want it, I really really want it I want it, I want it, a tiny bit of giant’s blood

I am trying not to crack I am dying for a break You can’t possibally comprehend The pains I must undertake I will take this on myself I will shoulder every load If I gave you but a fourth of it You doubtlessly would explode Signoria, signoria, signoria, signoria Signoria, signoria, signoria dysphoria I appreciate your tears They’re appropriately thick And quite honestly to stay this long It’s a dicey and tiring trick But you need me not to bend I will stay here on the block If you give to me your velvet gloves I give to you all my rock Abbraccia un dittatore Signoria, signoria, signoria, signoria Signoria, signoria, signoria dysphoria

Not enough! I’m gonna ask you to times it by ten And then I’ll ask you to double it again And when you feel like you’ve gone far enough Don’t even bother showing me that weak stuff There is always more It’s what the gear is for There is always more Unless it’s all on the floor Not enough Listen: Is this all you’ve got? I think you have about ten or twenty moon shots And then what? What can you do? I’m gonna say you bite it off and then chew There is always more You’ve got the key to the door There is always more It’s what the gear It’s what the gear It’s what the gear is for It’s what the gear is for... (First, second, third.... twenty-fourth) First gear, you could prove yourself to yourself Next year, kings and presidents will say how do you push it to the (Don’t’ say it!) To the top! There is always more It’s what the gear is for There is always more Unless it’s all Unless it’s All on the Floor

Turnaround 03:17
And then I saw what you Were trying to show to me It’s not a law but you Thought it would hold to me But I’ve a mind of my Own and I find when I From time to time use it I often don’t lose it When it’s a deal breaker When it’s a soul shaker I put my spin on it I see a win from it ‘Cause I’ve got brain power For any pain shower And I can share with you If you can dare break through Hoo hoo hoo Yeah yeah Turnaround turnaround turnaround
14.
I think a lot of myself It’s all me and I I think a lot of myself You can see that I I believe a lot in myself But you see It’s not real Oh no It’s not real No no no Yes it’s real! What did you think it wasn’t real? Did you think that I meant it When I said it wasn’t real?? No that’s when I was lying! Hahahahaha it’s so real it’s so real it’s so real I think so highly of myself It’s super real It’s super real It's super real In fact I sing it to myself all day Just to prove how I feel You can sing it to yourself all day Just to prove you’re a big deal Yeah sing it, sing it Sing it to yourself To prove that you’re for real Why would you lie When you can tell the whole world I’m a big deal, whoah whoah whoah I’m a big wheel, la la la I’m a big deal, whoah whoah whoah I’m a big wheel, hahaha I’m a big deal.

about

Tiny Bit of Giant's Blood Chicago, Illinois

Daily life is a struggle. Tiny Bit of Giant’s Blood is the new glam punk heavy rock product from Tony Rogers & John Scholvin of The Good. It’s also a lion on stimulants, a velvet jumper two sizes too small, a goblet of mysterious dark liquid that promises a night you will never forget. It features the pulsating rhythms of Jackie Schimmel & Larry Beers, and it may leave you gasping for breath. ... more
