She said "I'm fine, I'm okay"
Cover up your trembling hands
There's indecision when you know you ain't got nothing left
When the good times never stay
And the cheap thrills always seem to fade away
When will we fall
When will we fall down

Jump back, gotta get out of here
Been too, too long this time
Jump back, gotta get out of here
When will, when will we fall down

She hates her life, she hates her skin
She even hates her friends
Tries to hold on to all the reputations she can't mend
And there's some chance we could fail
But the last time, someone's always there for bail
When will we fall
When will we fall down

Jump back, gotta get out of here
Been too, too long this time
Jump back, gotta get out of here
When will, when will we fall down
When will we, when will we fall down
When will we fall

She said "I'm fine, I'm okay"
Cover up your trembling hands
There's indecision when you know you ain't got nothing left
For the last time conscience calls
For a good friend, I was never there at all
When will we fall
When will we fall down

Jump back, gotta get out of here
Been too, too long this time
Jump back, gotta get out of here
When will, when will we fall down
When will we, when will we fall down
When will we fall

Great memories of this landmark album! I took a 10-day vacation in Guam, summer of '94, and this was on the airwaves, on the MTV videos in bars, played for long stretches in the car rental tape deck; man, it was everywhere! Loved it then, still dig it now. More TOAD!

 
I was ending my junior year of HS (at Santa Barbara HS) when this record came out, and I remember thinking then "what a cool band name, it's different" and I even liked the pop sound of the band, but not overly so.  Fast forward to my 40th bday (when you commented on March 5th 2017) and I'm in 100% agreement with you about really digging the band's sound. As just another example of how you and I would be good BUDs (lol) if we knew each other.  Stay cool bro - and keep posting your fun stories associated with the awesome (and even the not so awesome ones too) tracks we hear here on RP.

Long Live RP!

Waiting to hear Constellation!
Play the Toad!
I had tickets to see these boys on Thursday night in Portland and got snowed in.  Bummer.  Freakin' winter!

Yes - certainly their best, among many good others!

Seems they re-unite!

They still tour together occasionally. Saw them in Charlotte a few months ago. Glen said they were seriously considering reuniting and were working on new material together. Awesome!!!!!!!!!
I remain a huge fan of TTWS from the 90s.  I cannot believe I never saw them live as I had several friends who were "Toadies."  Please play some tunes from a spin-off project by the drummer, bassist, and guitarist —- Lapdog.

Yes, warderblu!  My all-time favorite Toad album!
"10"

One of the best pop-songs EVER....EVER written!

WOOOOW
I remember this one.  Back when rock and roll radio made a 90's revival with some very good songs.

Dulcinea
nice wee blast from some time back

This was the song that introduced me to Toad.  In the 1994 movie "Drop Zone", they played this as the skydivers were free-falling in a circular formation — the lyrics, combined with the images and melody, really highlighted the sheer athletic beauty of falling through the blue skies, free of all restraints...

2 years after the movie, I actually did a tandem skydive from 9,000 feet up — what a ride!!!!      {#Propeller}

 

Thanks for sharing!

The name of the LP where was originally released was Dulcinea. A great album.

Take care. 
Saw Philips's new group, W.P.A., last Wednesday night. Sean Watkins on guitar—and, oh, man, can he pick it!—and Luke Bulla on fiddle. Lush, three-part harmonies. Great band.

Celebrity sighting: Glen Phillips at Los Arroyos in Montecito on 6-9-09.
I hate to disagree with some comments below, but I think you can play more Toad - maybe some less played, but great tunes. 

They were my favorite band - till those guys from Tucson came along. . . .

If you took a nickel and Physicgenius comments and put em in your hand, do you know what they'd be worth?
A Nickel!

Sorry, didn't care for it when FM played the hell out of it and I CERTAINLY don't care for it on RP. Please keep the watered down, ultra pop out of RP. Thanks.
 

It's a good song.

That's all you really need.

I've never been able to understand how such a mainstream, blandrock band got bandname from a fairly obscure cult comedy sketch.

This has got to be the best response to one of the "late" Physicsgenius's trollings that I've read. Kudos!


TOOOOOOAAAAAAADDDDDD!!!! :D
Proof Bill & Rebecca love us!
LOVE THE BAND NAME!

Wow, I just read the lyrics. Such despair put to such a joyous melody.
jangly, pop-rock perfection :bananajam:
Used to go watch these guys play in a place called "Charlie's Seaside Cafe" in Ventura, CA. They were good then, still good now.

BY the way, this song has a Blue Oyster Cult "Don't Fear The Reaper" feel to me.
THAT's the song I was thinking of. Thanks for the memory jog.
Sigh...........another band to throw money at.

Catchy radio-pop; what's not to like?!
:bananajam: :dancingbanana: :bananasplit: GO TTWS!
Another great tune from these guys. One of the best kept secrets in music.
YEAH TOAD!

I went to High School with 2 of these guys in Santa Barbara. Back then, Glenn and Dean were artsy guys like me, and I never guess how far they'd go. I've heard rumors of reunion and I hope they do! Thanks RP for keeping these boys out there!! :bananajumprope:
