Message 266: Videotape

Today, “Videotape” was released via From the Basement.These may be the lyrics. Corrections are encouraged.

when I’m at the pearly gates
this’ll be on my videotape
when Mephistopheles is just beneath
and he’s reaching up to grab me

this is one for the good days
and i have it all here in red blue green
you are my centre when I spin away
out of control on videotape

this is my way of saying goodbye
’cause I can’t do it face to face
or talking to you
after it’s too late from my videotape

no matter what happens now
I won’t be afraid because I know
today has been the most perfect day
I’ve ever seen

You can listen, but not see, here.

Keep in mind that this was recorded before the Eraser, so lyrics such as the “I’m talking to you” part are probably long gone by now. In addition, one can assume that the tone of the vocals are probably going to be more like the second Amsterdam performance rather than this performance.

This is still a fantastic version of Videotape, regardless of what the one on the album will be. I love it. Thanks for the mp3 🙂

i hope as sincerely as i can that i am yet to see a perfect day of that sort. as if any other sorts matter. hmm…
