Everyone is Wrong

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Many years ago, I posted my interpretation of the lyrics to Lyle Workman’s Everyone is Wrong (as performed by Frank Black and the Catholics in a 1996 John Peel session) on, but Google no longer finds the post, and doesn’t recognise the lyrics. Here they are in the hope that Google can find them again:

I saw a man in shackles/Shut down ’cause he heeds cynic drone/Opinions everywhere/Foolin’ around inside his head/Shake them off/And sic the dog/Believe me/Everyone is wrong/They called his genius shallow/They called him every name to show they had word-skill/Judgment from everyone/From the sublime, the deft and the numb/Sticks and stones/May break my bones/Believe me/Everyone is wrong/If you must evaluate/You must appreciate it/I don’t give weight to your proudly jaded rape of my creation/Everyone is wrong.

A righteous ‘fuck the critics’ song! Here it is, for reference (right-click to save):
