But let's talk about you for a minute with the vomit in your gullet
From a half bottle of vodka that we'd stolen from the optic
In the backseat in your car because it wasn't safe to start it
"You're far too fucked to drive", were the words that you imparted

    I love the idea of naming the opening track 'In Medias Res'. [2]

    and the woolen dress that clung so tight, to the contours of your body...

    "I wake from sleep, my head and shoulders wet against the window A frost had formed and melted, soaked me right through to my collar bone" My favorite part.

    if you were given the option of dying painlessly in peace at 45 but with a lover at your side, after a full and happy life is this something that would interest you?

    i like this song really much and wouldn't mind stumbling drunk through small towns at night, singing this song completely drunk and in the same moment ignoring the feeling of shame that i actually recite such awful, awful lyrics and like it.

    one of their best songs, almost musical genius level, they have really come along since their first album to this one

    such an epic song, kind of weird lyrics but thankfully I read an interview explaining them, still get creeped out sometimes tho lol. It does blend well with the song, however. overall amazing song =) let's talk about you for a minute! "Is this something that would interest you? Would this interest you at all?" ♥

    i really like this one. the delivery of the lyrics at the minute is just beautiful! And i agree, the horns at the end are nice.

    SameWayOfSaying has got it right. "awful melodic middle bit"? are we listening to the same song?

    Surely the horrible noise is brilliantly matched to the intensity of the albums core lyrical themes. If you have nothing to contrast melody to, is it really as moving when you finally get that pay-off? Surely in an album so fixated upon death and decay, unorthodox, abrasive sounds are the ultimate descriptive medium?

    it is weird how this song has the MOST amazing beginning, and an awesome end! .... and that sort of awful amelodic middle bit (2:05). god. i have to skip over "i'm losin my body to science" to get to the "would this interest you" greatness at the end. [2]
