Lyrics

FREEZING Freezing in the land of sunshine Waiting in the land of no time Begging in the state of money Starving in the land of honey Breathing in the air of pipe dreams Living in the sleep of morphine Moving through the tar of highways Working for a hotel ashtray Chillin’ out for the big freeze Swimming in the sea of distress Saving in the town of excess Crumbling in a state of repair Pulling out chunks of my hair Chillin’ out for the big freeze Freezing in the land of sunshine Waiting in the land of no time Begging in the state of money Starving in the land of honey Chillin’ out for the big freeze Chillin’ I’m freezing c 1994 by Wishnefsky, Dave Rodgers, and Todd Jameson Dave – drums, extra crashes Wishnefsky – vocals, bass, electric guitars, acoustic guitar COMMENTS Okay, I can come clean now. This was a no frills attempt to graduate from the Midnight Oil school of songwriting. Todd wrote the second stanza of the first verse, which is, by far, my favorite part of the lyric. If I hadn’t been such an egotistical, controlling, megalomaniac, I would have asked Todd to rewrite the rest of the words. Shortly after I wrote this song, I purchased a sunburst Yamaha electric guitar with humbucker pick ups, affectionately known as “The Beast,” from our genius producer Michael James. Played through my vintage Vox AC-10 amplifier, it produced the sweet, warm, fuzzy, British tone of which I had dreamt for years. With the right amount of gain and the correct pick up configuration, I morphed into Pete Townsend’s lost American cousin. The Beast brought Freezing, and many other songs, to life. We played this song live a lot at our Southland shows. We typically dropped it from the set list for the Letterbomb shows. There was no particular reason for doing that other than we felt that the song had somewhat outlived its usefulness and we felt more strongly about our newer material. So we put the freeze on Freezing. This song got some airplay on KLOS and college radio. Mr. KFI liked this song too and used it for bumper music. We hope you like it too. Wishnesky
