    I just finished listening through YFLM again after a long time...

    I couldn't even remember how good this album was lyrically... Dig it!

    Big Train:
    "I've known fast livin' and I know wine, women and songs become a long locomotive for me, babe
    That train be rollin' not me, I'm going before wine and women turn into beer, the old lady and TV"

    Experience:
    "And as I feel it
    Is life art or imitating?
    'Cause if it's art
    Then all my life's been fingerpainting
    Had my best luck, though
    With a big easel
    I'd rather be an art project, babe
    Than just weasel out with wearin' one
    And come to suspect the whole experience"
    ----
    "Till I finally made it
    Life was kinda hit or miss
    But after I made it
    Life was "Take a hit of this"
    And I'd love to talk philosophy
    But I've gotta take a piss
    Man, that philosophy runs right through ya
    Take it from me, baby
    I've got experience""

    No Big Ting:
    "Can't seem to sew
    A single hole in my pocket
    Lord, I've tried
    Yeah, money talks
    I should know
    Mine always says, "Goodbye"
    ---
    "Stamps in my passport
    Now they're polaroids and drinkin' stories
    And I've got some good ones now
    It's getting harder to ignore me
    Now I'm believing half the reason
    Just for leavin'is coming home
    Where ya been
    Who'd ya do and
    What'ya done?"

    YFLM:
    "She needed classical music
    Or she couldn't make love at all
    And I was up there frequently
    Bringin' down the walls
    Drop dead bombshell
    Clean-cut classy gal
    She was a good pal
    And if you turned up the volume
    You could hear the demons call
    "Fuck me like Chopin
    Or don't fuck me at all!""
    ---
    "How bout a little Henry Miller
    With your Huckleberry Finn
    Assume the position, honey
    Let's begin
    You can do your penance
    Right along with that special sin"

    I'm not musically huge on the album, DAMN_GOOD, but I think lyrically he's got some interesting ideas. BIG TRAIN really kicks ass, though.

    Problem with YFLM is that before the records over, Dave is all over the map. Probably should've edited out a couple of songs. The deal with Travis Tritt was probably a mistake. Blues, country, hard rock, it's all there. Then again, that's Dave for ya. Some great heavy stuff though, first 5 or six songs for example, My Machine, Big Train etc. Alot of great lyrics too.

    I agree that A lot of Dave's best lyrics are on YFLM. It's too bad that he didn't have Steve Vai or Jason Becker as his guitarist when he recorded it, it would have been an even better album than it was.

    She's My Machine is great, and Your Filthy Little Mouth.
