'Big Head' is a song about the EGO gone mad and spraying stupidness like a firehose. 'Clothesline' is a reflection on simple things in life and my relatives who used them.

About the song
I guess people who get a little too big for their community britches kinda get on my nerves.
I work with some extremely self-righteous people, who IRONICALLY have so many skeletons in their own closets that you can see the lil' toe-bones sticking out under the door. GOT'CHA, Bubba.
Lyrics
BIG HEAD
by bret harold hart

you've got a big head, not too full
the world's a chinashop
and you're a bull

I see the doughnut, you see the hole
some hearts beat warm with love
your blood runs cold

don't need a big head to hold small thoughts
like how to break a heart and not get caught
don't need a big head if you don't dream
your head is empty
just like it seems

you got a big head, not much inside
a closet full o' skeletons
you need to hide

I see the doughnut, you see the hole
some hearts beat warm with love
your blood runs cold

don't need a big head to hold small thoughts
like how to break a heart and not get caught
don't need a big head if you don't dream
your head is empty
just like it seems

your head looks big, it's made of glass
we see right through you
you've got no class

I see the doughnut, you see the hole
some hearts beat warm with love
your blood runs cold

don't need a big head to hold small thoughts
like how to break a heart and not get caught
don't need a big head if you don't dream
your head is empty
just like it seems...

'Clothesline'
by bret h. hart

Clothesline clothesline lookin’ fine
20’ long, 4 lines wide
underwear and bedsheets swingin’ and flyin’
tell ya what it brings to mind

as a boy I was a backyard lad
imagination was all I had
we moved around a lot, it mad me mad
time on my hands, few friends to be had

sheets on the line, me inside
a pirate ship on a rising tide
runnin, jumpin’, laughin’ and hidin’
ask my sister if ya think I’m lyin’

Clothesline clothesline lookin’ fine
20’ long, 4 lines wide
underwear and bedsheets swingin’ and flyin’
tell ya what it brings to mind

Grandma and Grandpa, just startin’ off
Kid next door has the whoopin’ cough
Workin’ that hard’ll make yer hands get rough
You do what ya gotta when things get tough

Clothesline clothesline lookin’ fine
20’ long, 4 lines wide
underwear and bedsheets swingin’ and flyin’
tell ya what it brings to mind…

REVIEW:
Hipbone - "Decoupage"
(InstrumenTales/Szum Music 2000, ITSZ 001)

From Aural Innovations #14 (January 2001)

From North Carolina, Hipbone plays songs that are very much in the mold of Dire Straits, T-Bone Burnett, The Band... you get the idea. The songs are well written, the vocals passionate, and the guitars are non-flashy but well played and keep the music that backs these fine songs interesting and rockin'. The band includes the Rev. Keith Prescott, Peter Zolli, and Mr. InstrumenTales himself, Bret Hart. I don't see instrumentation credited but I hear a couple guitars, bass, drums, some keyboards, and vocals.

The disc opens with "Big Head", which has a thumping rhythm section, cool metallic rock guitar licks, some of which have an acidic Robin Trower sound, and vocals that sound like Mark Knopfler. The songs has the same Dire Straits inspired style that the rest of the disc has except the guitar adds a welcome aggressive jam element to the music. But whooah! "Big Head" ends abruptly and launches immediately into the quirky swingin' "Clothesline". Talk about shock. There's some nice guitar work here though. Nothing flash or exciting. Just really well played, which characterizes most of the guitars on the album. "Punching Clown" is another of the heavier rockers I liked.

The rest of the disc is similar and even includes a cover of the 60's hit "Walk Away Renee". In summary, Hipbone might be a bit mainstream for Aural Innovations readers, but the songs are solid, and the guitars are as passionate as the vocals.
