Black Star (4:07)

For Thom, this song is special. Although he has never offered an explanation of it, throughout 1995-96, when the band played it live, he did introduce it in various ways - declaring, for instance, that the song is about "Sex in the morning. Which is the best time to have it. As long as you've cleaned your teeth beforehand". The lyrics probe the destruction of a relationship and touch on sex with a third party.

I know all the things around your head and what they do to you
What are we coming to?
