0 Shouts   -   45,848 Scrobbles


The Prefab Messiahs began as a proto-lo-fi post-punk left-field garage pop band associated with the "Wormtown" (Worcester, Massachusetts) punk/arts scene of the early 1980s. Stylistically, their early sounds have been compared with Television Personalities, Swell Maps, Josef K, White Fence, Thee Oh Sees, The Clean, and King Tuff.

    You tie your laces left over right
    Read Herman Hesse by a 60-watt light
    Part your hair on the improper side
    You think you're cool but you're just trying to hide
    The fads will come and they will go

    I had a vision driving home from the shopping mall
    Dishpan hands grabbed for me and I began to fall
    Twinkie wrappers bind the dreams the Golden Arches state
    Walking down the aisles there, I saw the Savior's face
    In swirling clouds of TV fuzz transcending time and space

    One morning, as I awoke from uneasy dreams
    I found myself transformed in my bed -- into Franz Kafka!
    One day I woke up and I was Franz Kafka
    One day I woke up and I was Franz Kafka
    I -- I was metamorphosized
