If your arms are brittle beside you,
Wrapped so soft your blood, is running
I'll be there

If you're movin slowly, if we still get there
I'll be there
Such a strong desire, like hunger

All you need to hope you keep your head
Yeaaaah
Is the slow hand quickens

What youve done with all those around you
Hopeful always that someone will come and save you
I'll be there
To watch you sultry turning, seething
I'll be there
Minutes hold on to hours, gets you twisting

All you need to hope you keep your head
Yeaahhh uhhhh unnn
The slow hand quickens

How to leave it with the love you lost
You made them crawl to be without you,
The slow hand quickens

Yes, the sand is empty, in the hour glass
I'll be there
To turn it over and over, in your head

So you keep the hope you'll get your day
Yeaaah ohhhhh
As the slow hand quickens

You see too hard, to break, too cold
To burn, afraid your chance is gone
Wires are crossed, your mouth is lost
You fear you've left it far too long,
The minutes pass, the hours are gone
So hard to find your way alone

The slow hands quicken
The slow hands quicken

Aaahhahaaa

The slow hands quicken

I always feel like Matthew's vocals are completely independent from the instruments. You could overlay any of his vocal tracks over any of their songs and it would sound about the same to me.

A lot of people are probably pretty indifferent about him, but why bother to write anything about that?

 
True that, Proclivities!  Like they say, Apathy sucks, but who cares!!?

And as my past posts will point out, I'm on the "Uggg, DMB" team, even though I've encountered him while living in Seattle, and he's a pretty cool and normal dude.

Stop it, h8r. Your intolerance of others' opinions is unbearable.
Your name is five characters too long.
No Dave Matthews, RP!

I broke up with a girl once because she LOVED the DMB and I HATED it.  Now that 10 years have passed (edit - it's actually been more like 17 years now...uggg), I'm more of the 'meh' crowd, in fact I even found myself "liking" this track and rated it a 6.  That's probably the highest rating I'll ever give a DM song.

**EDIT** double UGG....I had to re-re-rate this track...back down to a 4.

If they ever do re-makes of The Beverly Hillbillies Dave Matthews could be voice coach for Jed to do the "whee-doagies!"

thank you psd gods!

Super Freek-eeee!!!

 

real music  : P
This guy's face reminds me of Keith Allen, father of singer Lily and typecast film hard man (he cameo'd in the wicked Shallow Grave, mainly as a stiff). Sadly, his voice sounds like what Keith Allen's voice might be like :(
If mediocre was the highest measurement of listening pleasure...this would fit nicely into that category. I can actually stomach this better than most of his other rambling tunes. However, the bar isn't that high, folks.
this "music" is pathetic

I don't know enough of their material to hate them like everyone else seems to, but I like this track.

 
I actually don't like this band at all....except for this track.  Weird.
