"Fill Me With Apples" as written by and Steele/clark....
fill me with apples
i am lovesick
like columns of smoke
your love is as strong as death
but we don't work for this
we don't grow round here
our minds are dead
they have passed their time
i feel like cement
and thee weighty tears of them
show and only pronounce loud cries
fill their faces with farms
make them become a pregnant man
and women of good spirit

    General CommentThis song/poem is in my mind one of The Sleepy Jackson's greatest achievements. I once read an album review of the lovers album and the reviewer dismissed this track as a piano doodle, which couldn't be further from the truth. I think this song may be about death and rebirth in love and in life. The following lyrics:
    "your love is as strong as death"
    "our minds are dead they have passed their time"
    "I feel like cement"
    all contribute to a meaning of death.

    While the lyrics:
    "fill me with apples"
    "we don't grow round here"
    "fill their faces with farms"
    "make them become a pregnant man and woman"
    are all metaphors for birth and growth.

    There's also quite a heavy feeling to the poem, when Steele says the words, cement, weighty tears and loud cries you get the feeling that he is at an emotional end. I also really love the way he recites the poem in a sort of semi psuedo-american accent.
