"Proposition 61" as written by and Ryan Lenssen Adrian Jewett....
What we need is a good jump kick, jump kick
To the head to get our ambitions in gear
For example, Jude at the party was taking her clothes off
Below the constellations

Outside the people, they pranced becoming lord of the dance
Another typical social plights
We greeted them with conversation and delight
Since Jude was mad at her dream for landing nowhere near the marker

To a boat on a island where nobody?s been
Except your best memories and your favorite friends
There ain't no self fished for dinner

This is a place, is a place, is a place, is a place
Is a place that's soft down in a chair
We?ll talk till the break, till the break, till the break
Till the sun comes up like the signal flare

Jude trailed off the trail, got her tail caught in a fail-proof safe
Didn't really fail for a night in jail with pale hail of everywhere
The nightingale did escape the whale
Couldn't we survive, they are fed alive, we all cried
Because she went and jumped overboard

She took a sad song, made it sadder
She took a sad song, made it sadder
She took a sad song, made it sadder
She took a sad song, made it sadder

She took a sad song, made it sadder
She took a sad song, made it sadder
She took a sad song, made it sadder
She took a sad song, made it sadder

She took a sad song, made it sadder
She took a sad song, made it sadder

    General Commenti onced listened to this song 300 consecutive times.
    i like all the Jude references, too.
    i thought the lyrics went a different way but I think there's a lot of room for interpretation:

    What we need is a good jump good jump kick to the head to get her ambitions in gear
    For example, Jude at the party, was taking her clothes off
    Below the constellations

    Outside, the people they pranced becoming lord of the dance
    And other typical socialites
    We greet them with conversation and delight
    Since Jude was mad at her dream for landing nowhere near the marker
    To a boat, on an island, where's nobody's been except your best memories and your favorite friends
    We cooked south fish for dinner

    This is a place, is a place, is a place, is a place is a place that's soft down in a chair
    We'll talk till the break, till the break, till the break, till the sun comes up
    Like the signal flare

    Jude trailed off the trail got her tail caught in a fail-proof safe
    Didn't really fail for a night in jail with the pale hail of everywhere
    The nightingale did escape the whale
    Couldn't we survive, they are fed alive, we all cried,
    Because she went and jumped overboard

    She took a sad song and made it sadder
    She took a sad song and made it sadder
    She took a sad song and made it sadder
    She took a sad song and made it sadder

    General Commenti saw them perform this live and when it came to the like "she took a sad song, made it sadder" they performed it in a more sing-songy way instead of yelling it and left the whole audience singing it for the rest of the night

    "Hey, Jude, take a sad song and make it better"

    General Commenthaha good catch drmn. i did not notice that until now!

    and yes alot of their songs are hard to understand.

    i think this one is just about a girl destroying herself though.
