Throwing Off Glass - Lyrics

Pin It Now!




Last played: 2009/11/25 Groningen, NED
Debut: 2002/06/12 Toronto, ON
Notes: By my count Throwing Off Glass has been played 20 times in concert. 13 of those came on the 2009 'We Are The Same Tour' with the other 7 all being from 2002. Hopefully it sticks around. The Hip are a much better band when they carry many songs around with them. Especially this one. It's exquisite. Give it a listen if you haven't in a while. I mean a Real listen.


'Why is the world so creepy?' she asked
after a car full of haircuts drove past
a backseat full of 'the boys'

I told her that 'It isn't...
that...that it's exquisite
but like love, it has it's barbarous threats

still in spite of the cads
and the stoop-shouldered teens
I know I'm losing you
I know what that means, yea

I told her that it isn't
that it's real exquisite
but like love, it can have it's
stubbed-toe effects

and just like after she heard
the word 'iridescent'
and everything was iridescent for awhile,
it wasn't long
before she exalted out of nowhere,
'Isn't this exquisite?'

Once you've said 'mmm' in unison
and 'oh' in double surprise
and shared relief with a mutual 'phew'
and a look in each others' eyes

I tell her that is isn't
insisted that it isn't
because like love
it has too-cunning effects
I told her that it isn't
that it's just exquisite
because like love it has
it's barbarous threats

'Why is the world so creepy?' she asked
after a car full of haircuts drove past
a backseat full of the boys
breaking glass
throwing off glass.
