"In This Hole (The Covers Record version)" as written by and Marshall Cat Power....
Here in this hole that we fixed
We get further and further and further
For what
We must do

I saw you asleep beside a hole
Your skull inside a hole
Your eyes blankened by the sound
And the thought of God

Where should I hang my head?
Where would you like for me
To hang my head

One absent truth
The one horrible thing I saw
What you truly wanted to become
And who you thought I was
The fall, the fall,
Afraid, the blood
Runs deeper than the grave
It goes all the way down those tracks
Everybody bow your head
For the greatest inspiration
A complete contradiction
Of ways.

In this hole that we have fixed
We get further and further
For what we must do
I know this, I know this
You know this, you know this

In this hole that we have fixed
We get further and further and further
For what we must do.

I saw you outside that hole
Your skull girl outside that hole
Your eyes glistened by the sound
And the light of God.

    General CommentI love how there is that sound of a door closing or whatever it is when she sings "your mind finally free". So subtle yet entirely appropriate.

    General CommentThis is by far the better version of the reflection on a disturbed friend following their death,
