I keep meaning to ask Mike this at Baddies gigs, but it always slips my mind. What does Dave sing around 4:11 of 'Did You Hear What Sylvia Said?'? It goes something like this;

"The selfishness that you convey to be completely within your reach, is nothing if just a series of stupid ??????"

It's not written in the album sleeve for some reason. It sounds like "stupid poet statistics", but that can't be right.

Any ideas? It's been bugging me for ages.

EDIT: Added a poll to sort this shit out

(even though it's obviously 'coincidences')

It's more likely to be something incoherant - this is Dave Gardner we're on about here; King of the Incoherant Scream.

To me it just kinda sounds like "Stupid Goingssaarrghg gressharrgghhh!"

Or something. I don't think I got the spelling 100% though...

EDIT: secondtimeuser's ideas on this seem much more likely though...

I hate to be all cheesy, but I think you're both right in a way. It sounds like the lyrics are "coincidences", but he decided not to bother saying it properly, so it comes out as "a series of stupid coincidencAAAAHHHGGHHH!!"

I'm fairly sure it's Dave's wonderful inflection on "Stupid coded sentences".

P.S: That whole bit is awesome. It sounds like the gates of hell opening.

Coincidences, I recall one gig where David said it very very clearly, almost in a speaking voice and then just pretty much screamed his lungs out the second he finished the word coincidences!
