Good, Matthew - Champions Of Nothing Lyrics




When Hollywood runs out of Indians
When the bar stars melt and their golden hair turns into glass
When Hollywood runs out of Indians
When the bubble bursts and the first are come for by the last
There's something in the way you move
Makes me catch a cold
There's something in your "too cool for school"
When you slide up and down my pole
There's something in the way you look
That only casts a shadow
When Hollywood runs out of Indians
Only the Indians will know

A kick in the head, pass it around
Begging for a bed, pass it around
Pass it around

And I'd say what you'd say
It makes me feel nothing
There's a car waiting to take me to something
At the end of my rope there's
A new world, it's snowing
The globe it starts shaking
Is it me not worth knowing?
The white coats are melting
The snow down our mountains
To process the rivers for hallways, and fountains
And I'd say what you'd say
But it makes me feel nothing
Til there's a man waiting to take me to something
That I'm for

Hell
It looks red in all it's pictures
My sisters sing laments
While their skin blisters
(take your time, take your time, take your time)
Halleluiahs
Offered down on the floor
Nobody goes above decks
No, not no more
They say the sun is still shining
That you can feel it in your core
But I ain't seen nobody move
That weren't going for the door

And I'd say what you'd say
Champions of nothing
But there's a car waiting to take me to something
At the end of my rope
There's a new world, it's glowing
The globe it starts shaking
Was it you not worth knowing?
The white coats are melting
The snow down our mountains
To process the rivers for hallways, and fountains

And I'd say what you'd say
But it makes me feel nothing
Til there's a man waiting to take me something
That I'm for...

    Full-on Matthew again....meaning full-on through my heart & down my spine...

  2. Nolan Sodergard

    Pass it around.....magic

  3. Kirk Syrota

    Hospital Music from start to finish is as much of a masterpiece as MGB's Underdogs and Beautiful Midnight. This jam and the whole album takes me back to sunny Jamaica in 2007.. miss that time.

  4. RainMan TheReal

    Love is a strong word !


    Scrhhhhhhh!!!!!!


    I hate you!

    When Hollywood runs out of Indians
    When the bar stars melt and their golden hair turns into glass
    When Hollywood runs out of Indians
    When the bubble bursts and the first are come for by the last
    There's something in the way you move
    Makes me catch a cold
    There's something in your "too cool for school"
    When you slide up and down my pole
    There's something in the way you look
    That only casts a shadow
    When Hollywood runs out of Indians
    Only the Indians will know

    A kick in the head, pass it around
    Begging for a bed, pass it around
    Pass it around x2

    And I'd say what you'd say
    It makes me feel nothing
    There's a car waiting to take me to something
    At the end of my rope there's
    A new world, it's snowing
    The globe it starts shaking
    Is it me not worth knowing?
    The white coats are melting
    The snow down our mountains
    To process the rivers for hallways, and fountains
    And I'd say what you'd say
    But it makes me feel nothing
    Til there's a man waiting to take me to something
    That I'm for x2
    Hell

    Just hit 38yo in january 2019 !


    Still ok with those digits, I don't really care about it after all, it's how you truly feel inside that count.


    So this being said, lets move one to my point:


    My point is, that in all my a life, I've been listening to many different bands and styles of music, but this very song just KO'ed me. I feel like I was waiting for this song since my dad past away in 2002.


    If somehow this song could have played back then, I'm pretty sure it would have helped me go trough my grief instead of fighting it and fall into a drug induced downward spiral that took me 10 years clear of my life to overcome.


    I don't account this time lost as a failure, but I surely remember this period like the closest thing to hell on earth !




    Peace everyone !


    Mental sickness is real, so please ask for help if this message shakes you !

  7. P Skidmore

    What a wonderful song I can listen over and over

    RainMan TheReal

    P Skidmore

    In some kind of way this song helps me to heal myself and suits my anxiety momentarily!

    Thanks MGB for being real and show your inner struggles in your songs!

    Good night!

  8. AttilatheThrilla

    Seeing him doing a solo acoustic performance on March 13th.... I’m already SOOOO EXCITED 😁😁

    Matt Madill

    And he did this song, how appropriate

  9. mrssamwisegamgee

    Damn I feel this song so deeply... it makes me cry every time. Amazing Matt.

  10. zen sunraw

    this songs about hitch hiking

  11. Jenn Victoria

    I once asked a friend of mine to share with me the most depressing song he'd ever heard. He sent me this. & sharing this song saved us both.

  12. mike brown

    Hypnotic

  13. chris tundern

    ive been waiting a longtime for this album to get bk on youtube.thx a mill to the person who uploaded.for reals

  14. Jesse Kramer

    Moving song, Pass it around!

  15. David Madland

    iam four

  16. Jill Michno

    Wow he is just brilliant. This song moves me to my core!

  17. Radu Crican

    Rare, awesome, song

    Kagan Roy

    how is it rare? its the opening track for hospital music., as for awesome, i completely agree. its even better live though.

  18. Sophia1721 __

    Does anyone know what they say in the beginning ??

    DeFHoez

    it's saying i hate you maybe love is a strong word in reverse

  19. Cosmic Skringus

    This might be favourite song. Ever.

    Heather Fraser

    Mine too

  20. chibilua1

    hi from Brazil . I love this man... Matthew music are treasures to me

  21. Julien Caesar

    Anyone know where he got the introduction from ."Love is a strong word"? Is is a audio clip from a movie ?

    Worb Kees

    Were those interviews not for the album titled "Vancouver"?

    ThePoodlenoodler

    @Rob Weeks Not entirely, Girl Wedged Under the Front of a Firebird contains samples from an interview with a homeless person who's daughter was run over by a car, if I recall correctly.

    David

    Mogwai a long way from home I think

    Julien Caesar

    Thanks Thein.. that seems about right.. very close listening to it

    David

    I think it is, not 100% sure. He may have got them from homeless people in Vancouver B.C.

  22. Tyler Janzen

    I don't think MG cares if his audience is large or growing or shrinking. He'd make music no matter what... because he knows how helpful it has been to his own well being. He's got a strong fan base. I've seen him live 14 times and it's always awesome.

    Newclid

    Right on. I get that vibe too. Brilliant artist.

    mike brown

    14 shows wow that's 14 days of awesome for sure

    Joseph Pearson

    I have been to his concerts and almost met him trust me he craves the crowd

  23. K Degab

    I have never listened to anything front to back so many times in my life...if I had it on Vinyl, there wouldn't be anything left to it.

  24. Hanneli Seirrah

    How tragically overlooked Good is! Beautiful song, shame more people don't know it.

    ThePoodlenoodler

    @Hanneli Seirrah It is a shame, Matthew Good is such a talented musician, yet outside of Canada very few people seem to have heard of him. I've been thinking about becoming more active uploading music to YouTube because I'd like to share more music from artists that should be more widely known, so if you or anyone else has any suggestions I'd be happy to check them out.

    Pyre Valor

    +ThePoodlenoodler Tommy Bolin

    dragonieprayer

    we, the netherlands, have heard of him ;)

    David

    My favorite songs are Apparitions, Indestructible, Suburbia, Lullaby New World Order, and now this one.

    tazztower44

    one of the most underrated artists of all time but I think Matt likes it that way

  25. M Brontë

    great song, thx for uploading

  26. Jaxson Jillix

    This gets 2 thousands views and gangnam style gets 2 billion.  /facepalm

    ThePoodlenoodler

    @Jaxson Jillix It's getting there... slowly

    Worb Kees

    That's why this song is awesome. If it got played 2 billion times it wouldn't have the same impact.

    David

    And I'd say what you'd say

    But it makes me feel nothing

    There's a car waiting

    To take me to something

  27. Kevin C

    this guy is great, almost completely overlooked in the United States

    Hallucination

    @Kevin C it's sad that in 2015 he's almost completely overlooked in Canada now too :-/

    presjo

    +Hallucination he's not overlooked in New Zealand, by me...

    rebecca rosen

    funny...this is what happens to canadian music...

  28. Gerren Gleerup

    This song is powerful in so many ways. I absolutely love this.

  29. presjo

    This song is so... I dont know... real... in a absolutely depressing kind of way. I love songs like that
