we'll walk through candlelight and artificial flowers on sun street and drown ourselves in the swimming pool on the avenue of the little girls. you can't go three steps without encountering ghosts bearing all prestige of their legends. our vision fragmented, these monuments draw us back, draw us in, draw it out...but will never repeat.

    General Commenti reckon its about living with the myths of mass culture all around us, seems nice and innocent if you don't think about it ('artificial flowers', 'little girls') but it actually fucks up the way we see the world ('our vision fragmented') to the point where 'you can't go three steps without encountering ghosts bearing all prestige of their legends'. we are all complicit in the culture industry to some extent but we can resist it too: 'these monuments draw us back, draw us in, draw it out...but will never repeat.'
