About Land of a Thousand Words

"Land of a Thousand Words" is the second single from the American band, the Scissor Sisters' second album, Ta-Dah. It is the fifth track of Ta-Dah, and it was released on 4 December 2006 in the UK and Ireland. The single was released and charted in various European countries including Germany, Austria, Italy, Poland, Norway and the Czech Republic. Unlike the first release off the album "I Don't Feel Like Dancin'", "Land of a Thousand Words" is a slow ballad track. The video for the song, directed by Brumby Boylston and Chris Dooley of National Television, is a homage to the James Bond film title sequences (in the style of Robert Brownjohn and Maurice Binder), featuring all of the band, and the credits for the music video itself.

Another constellation dies
Do what you want 'cause it's your own sky
Just call me when the phone stops ringing
Thanks for coming by
I'm just glad I'm on your good side
Where it's smoldering you're freezing
It's never all that easy to decide

This is the land of a thousand words
But it seems so few are worth the breath to say
Sit doubting looking after my own worth
And you just keep on saving the day
I'll try to stay but it's in vain when you're far
I'm on the run to wherever you are

And that's the nature of the chase
You fall so far behind you end in first place
Pass the torch this time we're running to each's own regret
There's no harm in playing hard to get
Boundlessness deceives me
But baby you may turn the corner yet

This is the land of a thousand words
But it seems so few are worth the breath to say
Sit doubting looking after my own worth
And you just keep on saving the day
I'll try to stay but it's in vain when you're far
I'm on the run to wherever you are

I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way
(to where ever you are)
I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way
(to where ever you are)
I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way
(to where ever you are)
I'm not gonna do everything you say
Tried to stay but time is running out
But now I'm on my way

Scissor Sisters

Scissor Sisters are an American pop group formed in 2001. "Spawned by the scuzzy, gay nightlife scene of New York," the band took their name from the lesbian sexual act tribadism. Its members comprise Jake Shears and Ana Matronic as vocalists, Babydaddy as multi-instrumentalist, Del Marquis as lead guitar/bassist, and Randy Real as drummer (who replaced Paddy Boom). Scissor Sisters have incorporated diverse and innovative styles in their music, but tend to sway towards pop rock, glam rock, nu-disco, and electroclash. more »
