Some destinies, they should not be delivered. But in her eyes I saw a thousand reasons Day and night I feel her skin. Just day and night Day and night. You get nothin' back for all you've saved Just eternity in a spacious grave She said, Nothing is true, everything is permitted Things just go from bad to worse Starts like a kiss and ends like a curse But nothing's true, she said everything is permitted She got jewels on her tongue to time the stars She drives all morning in unmarked cars But nothing's true, it is all permitted She got these special tools just to keep things tight They robbed her eyes long ago of light But nothing's true, she told me it's all permitted She got inscrutable poise and nihilist charms She gets her sleep through tubes in her arm She said nothing is true, she said everything is permitted She nods on graves, the marble's cold and white, Her dreams surround the sun like a satellite She said nothin' is true, she told me it's all permitted The spiders [milk?
It was great living in the New York City area and having a station All the people in the song were real so I heard. Catholic Boy is a great album His songs come off more as poetry set to music Looking forward to RalphB's take on Jim Carroll. LandHorses , Jan 15, Thurenity and Scott S. Absolutely great album.
I was familiar with the late Jim Carroll from his book The Basketball Diaries and other poetry before his debut album came out, so I was very much looking forward to it. Catholic Boy didn't disappoint. Those three are my favorite tracks off the album.
His follow ups were good, but not as good as his debut. Downey even plays his band's drummer. Rocketdog , Jan 15, Location: Down The Shore. Absolutely loved that album, especially the opener, "Wicked Gravity". Killer guitar solo by Brian Linsley. And the cold ending leads into another scorcher called "Three Sisters". A lot of the material is autobiographical, and based on his book "The Basketball Diaries", which is a great read. The greatest radio station that ever was even if it was incredibly short lived in that format , PIX in NYC, played songs from Catholic Boy pretty regularly.
Last edited: Jan 15, Artist: Jim Carroll Band. Album: Catholic Boy. The sky seems so low, It hasn't moved this slow Since the virgins, since the virgins went dancing for the rain You know the stars in the night They're like the holes in the cave Like the ceiling of a bombed-out church But gravity blocks my screams It's like an enemy's dreams My guardians quit They quit before they started their search Refrain: I want a world without gravity It could be just what I need I'd watch the stars move close I'd watch the earth recede I wanna drift above the borders against my will I wanna sleep where the angels don't pass But now my lips are blue Gravity does it to you It's like they're pressed against a mirrored glass I want my will and capability to meet inside the region Where this gravity don't mean a thing It's where the angels break through.
It's where they bring it to you It's where silence, silence can teach me to sing Repeat Refrain 2 times I wanna lay beneath these sheets and never turn blue I wanna hold you, hold you tight but never touch I want some pure, pure white; hey, we can nod all night We can do it without thinking too much I want the dilettantes and parvenues to choke on my wrists They think the pearls I wear are pills I want their gravity to shatter.
Repeat Refrain Wicked, wicked, wicked, wicked gravity. Wicked, wicked, wicked, wicked gravity. Wicked, wicked, wicked, wicked.

This may be way off but I always thought of them as a band who could drive a song with just the two chords, like the Waterboys.
