"Ophelia" as written by and David/pearce Usher....
Morning came to pieces without offering is it still real
Precious little pistol beaten senseless till she can't feel

Still the moment's passing by
It's only the time that we could never stop
Early morning winter came been to close to be so close again
I never meant to be so cold
It's only the time that we could never stop
Still the moment's passing by
I'm letting Ophelia die

Daisy dusted lightly so politely till she can't see
Itchy little trigger will deliver what you can't be

Still the moment's passing by
It's only the time that we could never stop
Early morning winter came been to close to be so close again
I never meant to be so cold
It's only the time that we could never stop
Still the moment's passing by
I'm letting Ophelia die
I'm letting Ophelia die

There is another verse at the end, but for the life of me I don't know what he is saying.

    General CommentHey I added this song to the list because it is one of my favorite Moist songs of all time. It's blistering, yet beautiful at the same time. Moist are definitely masters of the concept of being abrasively beautiful, where quality truly takes first priority. Moist doesn't get nearly enough credit, especially from the USA, and I would like, as a Texan, do give them that where it is due.

    General CommentDamn this song is awesome. "I'm letting Ophelia die" is such a rad line.

    The song is obviously inspired by Hamlet. I have a feeling that, if this song can actually be interpreted and isn't just something that David Usher thought sounded neat, that perhaps the song is from the perspective of Gertrude, who watches Ophelia drown herself. Or perhaps the chorus is from Ophelia's perspective, making reference to the fact that the play [well, at least at the time Ophelia dies] is set in winter.

    "There's a daisy: I would give you
    some violets, but they withered all when my father
    died"
