    VelBG, there's a lot more predicted on his album The Future than what's in the lyrics. That's all I'll say. This is a brilliant, beautiful, tear-jerking song which, along with Democracy and Anthem, make up the gems of my absolutely favourite Leonard Cohen album.

    I've actually always appreciated Leonard's slightly faster tempo songs a bit more

    except for the silly "crack & anal sex"-line and his offhand simplification of abortion its a stunning song with haunting poetic imagery

    And there's an endless roadway, everyone birthing and being born, eating, dying like lover-suicides and fucking like murderers. NBK outro.

    Surprise surprise, everything Cohen predicted is now true. "Give me crack and anal sex, take the only tree that's left and stuff it up the hole in your culture."
