Eels - Novocaine for the Soul

Life is hard
And so am I
You better give me something
So I don't die

Novocaine for the soul
Before I sputter out

Life is white
And I am black
Jesus and his lawyer
Are coming back
Oh my darling, will you be here
Before I sputter out

Guess whose living here
With the great undead
This paint by numbers life
Is fucking with my head once again

Life is good
And I feel great
'cause mother says I was
A great mistake

Novocaine for the soul
You'd better give me something
To fill the hole
Before I sputter out

"Novocaine for the Soul" is the first single released by American rock band, Eels. The track comes from their 1996 debut album, Beautiful Freak. "Novocaine for the Soul" was the first song that gave Eels international success, most notably in the UK, where it hit #10 in the UK Singles Chart in February 1997 and also hit #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks for two weeks in late 1996. The song samples Fats Domino's 1961 US Top 20 single "Let the Four Winds Blow". The song's popularity was also aided by its later (and rather frequent) use in the British television show Trigger Happy TV.
