Bek Lyrics

The Spirit Moves Me

(From the Stereopathetic Soulmanure Album)

[Written by Beck Hansen]

Walkin' back to the burnin' schoolhouse
And the kids drinkin' in the park
Late at night and the spirit moves me
And I don't mind being afraid

Old man with no clothes
Leaning on my fence

Tell me where the money goes
And the food don't taste the same
I'm gettin' fast at being the last
You know I don't need to waste no time

You can call me once a week
Tell me where I been
Phoney lady layin' flat on the road
And the helicopter going by
And I'm down to the sound of the sky turned brown
And I'm loving everything you say

I don't think it's funny
When you shaved both of my arms

Lately I been spitting out things
That I didn't mean to say
But that's alright now
You don't listen to me anyway
