This is my first time here, so hello there :v
Anyway, I have bought a 2CD version of "City" (with "For Those Aboot To Rock").
I looked at the booklet, and what the shit.
These lyrics for "Velvet Kevorkian" are not only wrong, but also...too long.
Here goes:
"I want to know where the action is

It's time again
We won't get a second chance
Everything is dying
Fuck sleep, fuck beauty, I know I have to make it alone"
...and more. Some are actually correct ("We won't get a second chance" and "A new time is coming" later on)
but the rest? And I'm missing a "WELCOME THE FUCK HOME!" at the end, too.
And also, a lot of the lyric sites have this version, too.

Is there something wrong? A mistake, or...I don't know.

Hi!

Possibly those lines are mixed in really low, or I read somewhere that maybe those lyrics were printed there to more accurately describe the feeling of the song, but couldn't fit in the song itself. If you have Terria, look at the lyrics for Mountain. ;)

As for the actual lyrics you hear in VK: http://lyrics.wikia.com/Strapping_Young ... _Kevorkian

Off the top of my head... The lyrics in the booklet are what Dev wanted to say. The ones on disc are what he actually got out.

I think this was in one of the old newsletters.

Well, that's weird of him. Still, I wouldn't mind listening to the track with said lyrics. "City" is already crushing, but this?
Damn, I'd dig the hell out of any older materials of "City" (besides the ones on the deluxe edition).
Aw, but thanks anyways :)

There is an early demo version of Velvet on one of the ass-sordid demo compilations. Think it might be on volume 2 as sunmud?

HELP! Who knows the words of 46 sec. - the back Gang vocals? It sounds like:
Fuck sleep, fuck all of you
Yes... yes! (for me, for me, for me, for me, for me, for me, for me)

Gang Back vocals - "For me" or not????
