"Holocaust" is originally from Big Star...
Your eyes are almost dead
Can't get out of bed
And you can't sleep
You're sitting down to dress
And you're a mess
You look in the mirror
You look in your eyes
Say you realize
Everybody goes
Leaving those who fall behind
Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care
They stood on the stairs
Laughing at your errors
Your mother's dead
She said, "Don't be afraid"
Your mother's dead
You're on your own
She's in her bed
Everybody goes
Leaving those who fall behind
Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care
You're a wasted face
You're a sad eyed lie
You're a holocaust

    General CommentThis song is really haunting, very depressing. But it's extremely pretty.

    General CommentAgreed. At first it sounds like a typical depressive person, but a holocaust? Holocaust is defined as "an act of mass destruction and loss of life" ? So it makes me think of maybe someone who hurt people all their lives, and is depressed..
