Germute
Livingston Burgundy
$5.99, two for ten
We're here in together
Anti-vitamin in the crudest form of nutrients
"You can't hold it against them," she said
She believes that all those who suffer from life is from an illness are in the right
The woman in the lobby stares me down, mocking and unconcerned
In California, news anchors all look like they were plucked from a threesome porno scene
You've got one slutty vixen type
One down from her is the short hot business woman
And in between them is an orange colored three piece suit
White-haired and fifty something
Witty with a dirty, tired smile
The man standing next door
Plays his radio just loud enough so you can tell there is something really close... on
When this whole thing started I was a name
Now there's a definition and a reason
The more I expect the harder things are
Jesus and the Sharp Electric Star

    General Commentthe last line seems to be about christmas and the juxtaposition of the religious aspect to the commercial aspect. perhaps he expects this discovery of faith, and all he gets is hallmark cards and cheap gifts. i don't think it necessarily has to be about faith, and maybe that's just a symbol for something else, i'm really not sure.

    General CommentOk, aloha.loves, let's rethink your comment.

    Anthony Green has been off drugs since his early Saosin days, possibly before. So, to say he's 'always' high when he writes his songs is a common mistake. Getting off drugs was a big accomplishment for him, so let's give him some credit for that.

    Thanks.

    General CommentI think this song is broken up into paragraphs and that's how it should be read. It seems like there is a space imbetween 'the woman in the lobby...' and 'in California', 'with a dirty, tired smile..' and 'the man next door, 'something really close...on' and 'when this whole thing started...'

    If you make it that way, it is easier to understand. Maybe the woman in the lobby is in the lobby of a hospital, which would mean he (or someone else) had done something (overdosed?) on the things that were 5.99.

    I think the whole thing with the California news anchors has to do with watching TV in the hospital room (if that is where it takes place).

    The man next door could be in the hospital room next door, probably listening to the TV really loud.

    The whole next part doesn't make much sense, but maybe has to do with realizing that things are worth living for. 'Jesus and the sharp electric star' makes no sense what so ever, maybe it just sounded cool.

    This song made sense to me as soon as I heard it and maybe after reading this it'll make sense to other people. Maybe I'm just crazy.
