i know i know i know it’s over
upon the platform inside the slaughter house
just a slip away from murder
ooooooooooover
in the night a mystery should unfold
where i wish for waking up unaware
but it’s not unclear at all
underlined in red on your jacket sleeve
were the curse blank as a toothache
but it’s not unclear at all

I KNOW!

i know i know i know it’s over
your final descent ick ick ick ick ick
mixing pills and gas with incest
on the plane ooooover
folded up the last year of your life
every play you tried to write in school
venice is the right place to kill yourself
like a cricket blob in the cactus club
pass away and chirping in my ear

    General Commentthe whole song is a reference to 'i know it's over' by the smiths
    there's obviously more too it but that's the most obvious bit of understanding

    General Commenti love this song. it almost seems like someone is feeling relief after a person commits suicide. i'm not exactly sure but just a thought.

    General CommentI adore this song, but I always thought he was saying "How do you know? oh oh" I guess now it makes more sense though.

    General Comment"in the night a mystery should unfold

    to me that seems like it's about someone who wants to get raped in the middle of the night.

    General CommentWow BigNothing, that's one of the stupidest things I've read all day. And I've already been on the internet for a few hours! Congrats.
