You came down from the sky
said you meant no harm
with your eyes upon my woman
and your feet upon my farm
and you brought the finest gun
that ever was made to kill
so we shot you in the back
put your bones upon the hill...

First Contact

You came down from the sky
Said you meant no harm
With your eyes upon my woman
And your feet upon my farm

And you brought the finest gun
That ever was made to kill
So we shot you in the back
And put your bones up in the hills

Seven days and you came again
with a hundred hungry men
said, “let’s try this thing again
did you catch my name yet, friend?”

Yes, I know your name
I know your name is "Doom"
‘cause you suck out all the air
when you came into the room

and you wanted golden stones
brought down from the streams
you were laughing about a trade
like I wouldn’t know what you mean

‘cause you thought I was your fool
and you’re the better man
so I sharpened my stone tools
and I killed you once again

seven days and you came once more
like the time you came before
said, “let’s get down to the core
I think you know what I came here for”

I know why you’re here
You’ve not come to make a home
Yeah, I know why you’re here
You’ve come to suck blood from the stones

With a bible in your left hand
Your right hand holds the knife
You got me on the run
I’m hiding in the night

The Good Stuff
Another Bob song that I need to add, Tood good.


Acoustic Meltdown
Excellent track. Acoustic guitar driven tune with interesting lyrics and great vocals. A real talent.


All The Best
an amazing ballad, this song really got to me. It's abstract and weird in all the right ways!

Biggie's Big-Time Radio Revue
Really nice sounding track. Very original. Great vocals and playing.


What the Folk!
I should have had Bob up on numerous stations ages ago. I dont know why I Neglected to listen in on his material and missed out, but hopefully can listen many times to all his works to fully appreciate and gather in his incredible musicianship and lyrical gems that are glittering throughout his artist page here This one jumped right out, the fine finger style guitar picking is just so wonderful to listen to, even that is in itself is enough to make this song stand out,. but then his vocals come at you and the story he relates engages your mind and challenges you to listen. This song is Evocative, spell binding and thought provoking...I have to go back and read those lyrics again and listen to the song many more times to really grasp what is going on...i sure enjoyed the song....This is pretty cool stuff By the Way Bob. I have an old Roland Jx8p. nice little synth


JUST LISTEN!
Excellent work here by Bob Elliot! ...I always loved it when the Smashing Pumpkins did stuff like this. -M-
