Introduction by Jimmy Flemion


Song 7 off of our LP "Hopscotch Lollipop Sunday Surprise", is "Better Than God". How can a song be better than god? Oh but it is, it is. It was written on September 1, 1998, between 4:30 and 5:30 A.M. The original title of the song was, "Everyone Of You Is Better Than God". In the gospel, according to the book of James in the magazine "Better Heavens And Gardens Of Eden", everyone of you is better than god. If I were a betting man, which I am not, I would bet your sweet bippy that the lyrics to "Better Than God", with the original 4th verse intact follow this colon :<br&>

Lyrics


I scream in the winter<br&> I laugh at you all<br&> The Pleasure is all mine<br&> In Eden I fall<br&>

The kingdom looks different<br&> From down below<br&> Don't ask me to tell you<br&> I wouldn't know<br&>

Everyone of you is better than god<br&> Everyone of you is better than god<br&>

You've got it, it's nothing<br&> I laugh at you all<br&> And so it continues<br&> I hope you're having a ball<br&>

I listen with both ears<br&> I listen for lies<br&> Who tells you they love you<br&> Without their eyes<br&>

Everyone of you is better than god<br&> Everyone of you is better than god<br&>

Notes


The chord progression for the verses is : C Major 7 / E minor 9 / A minor / G Major / D Major (G b in bass) / C Major 7 / E minor 9 / A minor / F Diminished. The chord progression for the chorus is : F Diminished / G Major / F Diminished / G Major / F Diminshed / E minor 9. The final time through the last verse, the chords fluctuate between C Major 7 and E minor 9, instead of going down to the usual A minor / G Major / D Major (G b in bass) progression after the first 2 initial chords. This was a suggestion from Billy Corgan, who thought the song needed a change up in the song there.<br&>

I scream in the winter. Of the four seasons to choose from, other than Frankie Valli, winter sounds the most poetic. Insert the others, spring, summer and fall, and you will get my drift. He said insert. As a sun sign, i prefer warmth. I laugh at you all. This was in response to the music television stars of the day. The pleasure is all mine. Pleased to meet you. In Eden I fall. Eden was part of an e-mail address of someone i fell for. The kingdom looks different from down below. When you are gazing up at kingdoms, it is a totally different vantage point. Point kingdom, advantage kingdom. Don't ask me to tell you, I wouldn't know. I wouldn't no. I am holding back from imparting the annointed wealth of knowledge. How friendly of you indeed, Dr. Smith. Everyone of you is better than god, everyone of you is better than god. That is a tall order, but go for it, your eminence, order up. You've got it, it's nothing. There's nothing to it. The flip side of that coin is that what you have is nothing, so it in fact is not something. I laugh at you all. God's comic. Why else would he put lesser "rock 'n roll talents" in coveted positions and cloak wisdom. And so it continues, I hope you're having a ball. Stop the insanity god. By the way, as this blog commences, I do hope you're having a ball. Happy Labor Day. Where's Jerry Lewis? He's on television right now.<br&>

The track "Better Than God", features electric guitar and vocals by myself and a drum machine programmed by Chuck Myers in Sandy, Utah where the track was recorded. The guitar was done in 2 takes and the vocals in one take.<br&>
