H with a capital Hate
Out catching souls and drilling holes and
It can make you feel like Jesus
'Til that sword gets driven in
Stepped over on the homeless night
They sprayed the wall my desperate friend
Tried to climb in vain
They felt his pulse, they swept him clean away

Oh, you fucking fool, you left us carrying your useless pain
We're trapped here 'til we die
We're trapped here 'til we die
We're trapped here 'til we die
We're trapped here 'til we die die die die die die die

The remains, the remains, the residue
The remains, the remains, the residue
The remains, the remains, the residue
The remains, the remains, now, is it you?
Is it you? Is it you?

    General CommentIt seems to be about Dwayne Goettel’s death. H with a capital Hate could mean Heroin. R.I.P. Dwayne

    General CommentHmm, what makes you think it is about Dwayne Goettel? It does seem to very much be about heroin. It was released rather close to his death, and of course LPD has close bonds to SP. Well perhaps that's the answer.
    I actually find this song very infuriating, not pleasing or fun.... perhaps that is done intentionally.

    and yes, R.I.P. Dwayne

    General CommentI figured this song was about heroin, but it's an interesting theory that it's about Dwayne. Dwayne was involved in Tear Garden after all.

    General CommentYou are right, the H with a capital hate is Heroin, it is a look back at Dwayne Goettel's death, - this and the breakup with his first wife Elke, really shook Edward Ka-Spel up in the mid-nineties. He was a friend of Dwayne's through the Tear Garden connection. Songs like "To Mourn the Death of Colour" are imploring the whole Heroin scene to quit, as it is sucking the life from it. Amongst other things...

    Heroin makes you feel great 1. If you are doing it and 2. Because you are creating new users and feeling good that you are taking away their pain - like Jesus - drilling holes into flesh with needles - but of course, the addiction and side-effects kick in and sap you of your vitality and eventually - your life.

    The Wall is related to the obstacle Edward speaks of trying to climb over in "Straight on 'till Morning" from "From Here You'll Watch the World Go By", and also later obliquely in the song "Castaway" from the album "Crystal Mass" by Tear Garden. In spirit, it carries on, on "The Whispering Wall", though that wall is more about a specific political boundary than this one.

    "We're trapped here 'till we die" reminds me of Jim Morrison's "No one gets out of here alive." Since we will all die someday, I guess we don't - unless there is an escape hatch from the Hallway of the Gods...
