about

originally written in the summer of 2002, this new version features some blistering electric guilt from both Nick Stephenson and a wild solo from Mike Scott.

lyrics

Well I’m lying in a drainpipe, snowy white note. Hazy on a Monday, forget what I’m about.
I don’t have nothing and I don’t know what I need

In a room where I forgot myself surrounded by my friends. Heart keeps beating all for nothing, all for what I’ve spent and I don’t have nothing and I don’t know what I need.

Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom wall, can’t stop it from hitting you now, Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom walls, can’t stop it from hurting you now.
Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom walls, can’t stop it, can’t stop it no. Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom walls, can’t stop it from hitting, hitting you now.

Damaged from the shaking, infected through the veins, using what you need the most to saturate your brain.
You don’t have nothing and you don’t know what you need.

And your dropping by an underpass, waiting for an hour, friends are fascinated by it’s loving strange power and once you had nothing, now you know what you need.
You know what you need baby!!

Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom wall, can’t stop it from hitting you now, Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom walls, can’t stop it from hurting you now.
Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom walls, can’t stop it, can’t stop it no. Stoned aching breaks through your bedroom walls, can’t stop it from hitting, hitting you now.

Stoned Aching (repeated)
