"The Curse of Great Beauty" as written by and Eef Barzelay....
Your tooth ache, an ivory tower
So let down your long perfect legs
I'll untie the knots with my lips and my tongue
And rub Ambisol into your hair

'cause those paper cuts kept you from writing
A poem so epic and true
About how you are cursed with a beauty so great
I'm sure that it's hard being you

So put down that book it's too serious
I'll undress you as I make a joke
But please try not to laugh as I swim in your flesh
Just hold your breath 'til I finish

So explain it again to me slowly
About the physical world you transcend
I'll just watch you lips and perfect white teeth
And the cigarette that doesn't belong there

And the cigarette that doesn't belong there

    General CommentThis is a fairly obvious song, I think. It's an attack on an arrogant female, who thinks too lightly of herself.

    I love the line "Tell me again about the physical world you transcend."

    General CommentI love Clem Snide. Every lyric fascinates me and touches me in a way almost no other band can. This song has meaning for me. I agree that it's about a woman who can moan too much about the pains of being beautiful, also i think Eef is saying, yeah tell me again how awful it is but i'll stare at you all the same. And it shows a certian self consciousness of being with an amazing woman. And at the same time mocking her self pity for what is actually a blessing.
