No good with faces
And I'm bad with names
Gave me directions
But it's all the same
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try
Street lamps are broken
Black the way I came
Who broke the moonlight
Watch it wax and wane
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now
There's no need for rain
Its our own parade
Let's not be afraid of our reflections
Its not only you
You're looking at now
Road signs were stolen
Left here holding this flame
Who stole my patience
Who stole my way
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now
There's no need for rain
Its our own parade
Let's not be afraid of our reflections
Its not only you
You're looking at now
Let's not get ahead of ourselves now
There's no need for rain
Its our own parade
Let's not be afraid of our reflections
Its not only you
You're looking at now
Who you looking at now
Who you looking at now
No good with faces
And I'm bad with names
Gave me directions
But it's all the same
I'm lost
I'm too tired to try

why giblets? I remember those from thanksgiving.... yuck
I have been an RP listener for a few years and no other artist gets so many bad comments or evokes such strong feelings. I really don't understand why. He's not bad, he's not great, just an ok artist.  I will put it down to jealousy since I hear he is a man of many talents.
You've perfectly summarized my sentiments about Jack Johnson's "talent".

No good with lyrics and I´m bad with rhymes
Gave me no brain cells and I'm just lame oh oh
I´m a waste, I´m too stupid to try

House plants are totally slack the way I'm lame
I broke my brain watch it crack and drain oh oh
I´m a waste, I´m too stupid to try

Let's not piss on ourselves
There´s no need for brains
Brains are our own marmalade
Let´s not be afraid of our defecations
It´s only goo, you´re listening to now

Brain cells were stolen left here holding a butt flame
Who stole my intelligence, who stole my brain oh oh
I´m a waste, I´m too stupid to try


 

I doff my hat to Vandal.  True wit resideth below.
His voice makes me very, very sleepy.........

I'm not a fan of Jack Johnson, but "At or With Me" is a good cut off this CD. Perhaps someone could upload it?


Kind of love him - but all songs sound the same {#Confused}

It looks almost exactly like the cover art from the Derek Trucks band album, Already Free!

 
I see a person trying to create a live action version of World of Goo, but that's not quite right...

Oh, WHY did yours have to be the first comment?? {#Lol}  I happen to love Jack Johnson's music. He's a new generation of Jimmy Buffett, and to me, that's not a bad thing. His music makes me grin and ache to be on a white sandy beach (to quote Jesse Colin-Young) with my toes in the sand and a margarita in my hand - maybe a cabana boy to fan me with a palm-frond.

Geez - I think I just wrote a song.

I always get the feeling that if you haven't been to the east coast of Australia (or any other place with the same kind of atmosphere) to hang with a bunch of surf people, you don't get why this would be so great...

All Jack produces sounds the same to me and it's all low paced and easy... There aren't any surprises to his music...

My girlfriend's been to Australia and she likes this a lot.... {#Neutral}
