how did I end up here
curled up on this couch?
where did you leanr such a bold wink
whisking me off to your bedroom?
mousey toy
this continent is lit by the holocaust
beneath my ribs (between my lips)
mousey toy
how did two tiny ribbons untie
and unfold into a lime tree?
then to darken a room for other men
a dove hit mid-flight turns away

    General CommentThis song kind of makes me think of the movie Kids, or a similar situation.

    The first verse makes me think some kind of seduction is going on.
    Then it goes to the
    "This continent is lit by the holocaust beneath my ribs."
    In Kids, this kid (unknowingly) has AIDS and is having sex with several different girls. The several cheated girls represent the continent and the holocaust is AIDS and the boy in the movie was very skinny, his ribs were emphasized.
    And the last verse is again, a seduction type of thing.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Xiu Xiu songs. Once the snare kicks in I'm totally captivated.
