Spidey's Curse. I Don't Wanna Go Home. Notown Blues. Sea of Blasphemy. Can't Dance. Hippie, Hippie, Hoorah. Bad Kids. I'll Be With You. Drop I Hold feat. Veni Vidi Vici Diplo remix. Starting Over. Trapped in a Basement.
Body Combat. I Saw God. The Drop I Hold. Old Man. Big Black Baby Jesus of Today. Step Right Up. Cold Hands. Off the Block. Transcendental Light. Vini Vedi Vici Diplo remix. Slime and Oxygen. Closer "I Saw God" takes an already near-inscrutable ode to a minor drug epiphany and manipulates it with tape-masking and censoring "bleep" noises, before its full-band climax goes off less like a tidal wave of sound and more like someone falling over a drum riser.
If there's beauty in imperfections, some of these songs are shrines. No one's going to mistake this record for anyone but Black Lips, but they are stretching out as band here, pulling back their own tics in favor of things like style and tone.
Vocal duties are spread more democratically among the band, and more styles are dabbled with, though they haven't moved the needle too far on the college radio dial.

I'd worry about that later. It was impulsive, I was an enamoured 17 year old, and we were perfect for each other. Four years later and my brief but brilliant dalliance with the band's music had long since ended.
Live, they were still electrifying and trailblazing literally around the globe, but 's Million Thousand had left me cold. Which is why Arabia Mountain was such a bolt from the blue.
It ticked a lot of boxes for a twenty-something fan without the same natural enthusiasm or devotion as a teenager.Black Lips - Million Thousand Album Lyrics; 1. Take My Heart Lyrics: 2.
