alden: i don't care, i don't care
leave their corpses in my underwear

nick: smoke plumes become clouds
you just blend in
tu vas est tu vien

alden & nick:
i don't care i don't care
leave their corpses in my underwear

    General CommentI think it might be "tu vas et tu viens" which means "you go and you come".

    General Commenteffing beautiful song! it took me awhile to think of a logical meaning of this song, due to the hilarity of the main line, but i think it does actually have meaning to it, but im probably totally wrong. so i thought it was about leaving old, bad sexual relationships where they belong. forget them and never let them get to you or become more than something "in your underwear". idk. i tried. not sure what kick's part means, and i dont speak french either.

    General CommentI thought it was about raping someone (including murdering them). And then hiding.

    General Commentoddly enough, the most touching thing in this song to me is the whistling at the end. i go through periods of listening and not listening to bands, and for a long time i hadn't been listening to the Unicorns.... well, whenever i stop thinking i usually start singing/humming/whistling, and that little tune comes up all the time. it was driving me crazy because i didn't know where it was from and then i listened to this song and uhn.
    dunno. it's something magic :/
