Wainwright, Rufus - Zebulon Lyrics

Where ya been, Zebulon?
What you doing in this song?
Skating on the ice of song
About to go under

My mother's in the hospital
My sister's at the opera
I'm in love but let's not talk about it
There's so much to tell ya

I believe in freedom
Freedom's apparently all I need
But who's ever been free in this world?
Who has never had to bleed in this world?

All I need are your eyes
Your nose was always too big for your face
Still it made you look kinda sexy
More like someone who belongs in the human race

Where ya been, Zebulon?
Let's meet up, why not tonight?
In the lane behind the schoolyard
And we'll have some tea and ice cream

    No filter.

  12. Nelleke Nieuwboer

    thank you for sharing this dreamy state of consciousness which IS art, isn't it?

    Drew Layton

    Nelleke Nieuwboer Of course. All art is from the bowels of the Human psyche.

    Nelleke Nieuwboer

    or even deeper layers..because where is this human that you speak about? Like Shakespeare said: To give to 'airy nothing' a local habitation and a name...

  37. 11SoccerGirl27

    Still, it made you look kinda sexy
    More like someone who belongs in the human race
    My favorite part <3

  38. Foteini Christi

    @spartain507 I think it's a name, but maybe I'm wrong.

  39. Xnthony Keigher

    I recently watched a documentary on Rufus and his family, and it just filled me with such happiness. A rare thing. He reminds me of a sort of male Kate Bush especially with the whole family influence etc.

  40. Kekszolo000

    this song about my life!!!!! it's too impossible ... Rufus is my Jesus.

  41. spartain507

  45. missmisty42

    Absolutely stunning...

  46. Suzette Burr

    His talent is in having the wherewithal to concentrate one hundred percent on the music he is performing. He successfully locks out all distraction and becomes the music. Absolutely breath-taking!

  47. bluzebaby

    Hauntingly beautiful.

  48. Alessio Arena

    He's a fucking genius.

  49. Plottoberry

    ''I'm in love, but let's not talk about it.'' That is so me...
    & His FACE. I believe everything he sings.

  50. rstcs

    saw him yesterday in Groningen, Holland. The first set was All Days Are Nights, an performance of almost an hour. Incredible..
    Sometimes musicians are more than musicians. Rufus gave me one of the most exciting, touching, preformances i have ever witnessed. Pure art.

  51. Olivia Baker

    The dissonance in this song bothers me but intrigues me and I just can't stop listening to it. I love you Mr. Wainwright <3

  52. Tom van Messel

    I think he's wearing a Fostex T50RP headphone, in case anyone was wondering ;)

  53. Kaye Telle

    Blogged along w/ tour dates. Thanks!
