about

TECH SPECS:

"Man of the Crowd" was originally recorded to Ampex 456 tape on November 22nd, 1997 at CMC Studios in Canton, Ohio by Jim Smith. It has survived only via the unfinished music video for the song started in 1997 and finished in 2018 by (Brian's brother) David. The demo cassette dub from CMC was transferred to SVHS video using a Panasonic AG-7750 deck and preserved in "glorious monophonic sound" (as Mike Crooker says elsewhere in this booklet). What is heard here went through the same audio sweetening and mastering process as the Odeon show.

lyrics

Verse 1:
Swimming to you just to feel the coldness of your lies
Leaving a trail of games and tricks just to waste all of my time
There's nothing left to do but end this selfishness and greed
But I am dumb and you are sick I don't know what to plead

Chorus:
Someone smack me for I think I have a life
All my thoughts and dreams are full of all your lies
Smothering wishes can't bring me to my knees
I want to start anew just to show you who I need
To stand out like that man of the crowd
To stand out like that man of the crowd

Verse 2:
Your fire is never as hot as the passion of my hate
I know you're never in love and you're always too late
Blowing kisses to the one I love a lot
You're spitting on my grave while I'm down there smoking...

Chorus:
Someone smack me for I think I have a life
All my thoughts and dreams are full of all your lies
Smothering wishes can't bring me to my knees
I want to start anew just to show you who I need
To stand out like that man of the crowd
To stand out like that man of the crowd
