Text Quotes
I may be drunk but at least I’m not insane  (Tom Waits Quotes) I sold a quart of blood and bought a half a pint of scotch  (Tom Waits Quotes) Are you still jumping out of windows in expensive clothes?  (Tom Waits Quotes) She’s got the whole dark forest living inside of her  (Tom Waits Quotes) I like my music with the rinds and the seeds and pulp left in  (Tom Waits Quotes) I’ll take a rusty nail and scratch your initials on my arm  (Tom Waits Quotes) The way you do anything is the way you do everything  (Tom Waits Quotes) We have a deficit of wonder right now  (Tom Waits Quotes) I really like your playing  (Tom Waits Quotes) He said, I’m better off without her, until I showed him my tattoo  (Tom Waits Quotes) Come down off the cross, we could use the wood  (Tom Waits Quotes) It’s new, it’s improved, it’s old fashioned  (Tom Waits Quotes) Got 27 children I never see  (Tom Waits Quotes) We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness. We are monkeys with money and guns  (Tom Waits Quotes) I’m not fighting for justice. I am not fighting for freedom. I am fighting for my life and another day in the world here  (Tom Waits Quotes) The folks who know the truth aren’t talking... The ones who don’t have a clue, you can’t shut them up!  (Tom Waits Quotes) You want soldiers who, when they get to a river after a long march, don’t start rooting for their canteen in their pack, but just dive right in  (Tom Waits Quotes) The trick is to have a career and have a family. It’s like having two dogs that hate each other and you have to take them for a walk every night  (Tom Waits Quotes) Most of us have the residue of thousands of songs in our ears, that if you end up songwriting, I think you’re mostly smoking the residue of all that material you absorbed over time  (Tom Waits Quotes) You just write and you don’t try to make sense of it. You just put it down the way you got it  (Tom Waits Quotes) (When asked for advice for younger musicians) Break windows, smoke cigars, and stay up late. Tell ‘em to do that, they’ll find a little pot of gold  (Tom Waits Quotes) For a songwriter, you don’t really go to songwriting school; you learn by listening to tunes. And you try to understand them and take them apart and see what they’re made of, and wonder if you can make one, too  (Tom Waits Quotes) I saw a crow building a nest, I was watching him very carefully, I was kind of stalking him and he was aware of it. And you know what they do when they become aware of someone stalking them when they build a nest, which is a very vulnerable place to be? They build a decoy nest. It’s just for you  (Tom Waits Quotes) Songs really are like a form of time travel because they really have moved forward in a bubble. Everyone who’s connected with it, the studio’s gone, the musicians are gone, and the only thing that’s left is this recording which was only about a three-minute period maybe 70 years ago  (Tom Waits Quotes) All records are riddles, and whatever you may want people to think it’s about, it may just be throwing them off. And you don’t want it to get in the way of what someone else’s understanding is. It’s not really about anything. At the same time, it will find some meaning  (Tom Waits Quotes) The blues is like a planet. It’s an enormous topic. You can’t ignore the impact that it has had and continues to have on the whole musical culture. It’s a tree that everyone is swinging from. Without it, I don’t know where I would be. It’s indelible and indispensable  (Tom Waits Quotes) Most songs have meager beginnings. You wake up in the morning, you throw on your suspenders, and you subvocalize and just think. They seem to form like calcium. I can’t think of a story right off the bat that was that interesting. I write things on the back of my hand, usually, and sing into a tape recorder  (Tom Waits Quotes) I’ve never been a fan of personality-conflict burgers and identity-crisis omelets with patchouli oil. I function very well on a diet that consists of Chicken Catastrophe and Eggs Overwhelming and a tall, cool Janitor-in-a-Drum. I like to walk out of a restaurant with enough gas to open a Mobil station  (Tom Waits Quotes) It’s very hard to stop doing things you’re used to doing. You almost have to dismantle yourself and scatter it all around and then put a blindfold on and put it back together so that you avoid old habits  (Tom Waits Quotes) Children make up the best songs, anyway. Better than grown-ups. Kids are always working on songs and throwing them away, like little origami things or paper airplanes. They don’t care if they lose it; they’ll just make another one  (Tom Waits Quotes)
