ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This song was inspired by four distinct sources (that I'm aware of):
1. Mike Doughty's vocal style (formerly of Soul Coughing);
2. King Crimson's track "Indiscipline";
3. Lena Lovitz' (and Thomas Dolby's) "New Toy"; and
4. Believe it or not, Marshall Mathers! (The rhythmic whooping synth figure that features throughout the track.)

Lyrics:

You want the thing - the thing you want
You gotta have the thing - the thing you want

You got the thing - the thing you want
You got the thing you hadda have - the thing you want

It's just a thing - a thing you want
The thing you want is just a thing you think you want

You got the thing - the thing you got
You got the thing you want
The thing you want you got

It's just a thing - the thing you want
You wanna have the thing - the thing you want

You got the thing - the thing you got
The thing you got is not the thing you thought

Why want the thing?
The thing you want
Why want the thing?
The thing you don't
You got the thing - the thing you want
The thing you want is just the thing you got

You do not got the thing!
You do not want the thing!
The thing you got is not the thing
You thought you wanted

You wanna got the thing!
You gotta want the thing!
The thing you got is just the thing you thought

You think about the thing
You think around the thing
You start imagining you're thinking thoughts about the thing

You think you want the thing
You thought you got the thing
You just stop questioning
Your thinking that you want the thing

The thing is not - is not the thing
The thing you think it ought to be
Is not the wanted thing

You thought you lost the thing
The thought is sobering
You can't imagine living in the absence of the thing

The thing is near - so near you hear
That you are whispering sweet nothings all about the thing

It will appear to be right here
The thing is ever-present in your thoughts about the thing

So you approach the thing
In your desiring
You find that in your mind, designed: the thing you're modeling

The possibilities - potentialities
Role-played scenarios so deep you almost are the thing

It's just a thing
A little thing
Something to occupy your intellect'ual wandering

So you obsess the thing
You must possess the thing
Spare no expense or recompense
'Til you obtain the thing

You can't explain the thing
The thing you're pondering
The thing that occupies your brain
'Til you attain the thing

You want the thing
The thing you want
You gotta have the thing
The thing you got

You want the thing
The thing you want
You gotta have the thing
The thing you want

You got the thing
The thing you want
You got the thing you want
The thing you want you got

It's just a thing!

It's just a thing!

You want the thing.
