Throwing Muses

Throwing Muses is an alternative rock band formed in 1981 in Newport, Rhode Island, that toured and recorded extensively until 1997, when its members began concentrating more on other projects. The group was originally fronted by two lead singers, Kristin Hersh and Tanya Donelly, who both wrote the group's songs. Throwing Muses are known for performing music with shifting tempos, creative chord progressions, unorthodox song structures, and surreal lyrics. The group was set apart from other contemporary acts by Hersh's stark, candid writing style; Donelly's pop stylings and vocal harmonies; and David Narcizo's unusual drumming techniques eschewing use of cymbals.

Ruthie's knocking
Oh my god
Who's she talking to?
Not a clue
Now she's shouting
I'll be on the floor
You go get the door

Just had to make sure you knew
That's a jack-o-lantern moon
Don't look in the mirror
Or he'll look back at you

Ruthie take a shower
I smell like a flower
Your cats smell better than you do
Her cats are pretty cool

Where's he now?
He's on the floor
She flips off the window
And spits at the door
My advice is twice what he's worth
The moon'll get him first
Mark my words
The medicine chests are backwards
Don't be surprised
If you have flaming eyes
Tonight, tonight
Yeah tonight
Ruthie's eyes are bright

Ruthie's spine is taped with feathers
They're all mine
They grew
So you see them too.
Ruthie, yeah
Your brain she's fried
You should see my mind

Dance around
Play around
Fool around
Walk around
Run around
Jump around
Fool around
Be around
