dream feels cold
your head is full of snow
there’s too much irony here
some things are shown
they can’t be told
the dress you stole is much too small

how can you tell what you want? oh yeah
how do you know when you fall? oh yeah
makes no sense at all
black hole love

three years to mars
and light-years to the stars
how could we drift so far?
let’s do it, punk
strip out the junk
who could have thought of us?

how can you tell when you fall? oh yeah
how do you know what you want? oh yeah
makes no sense at all
black hole love

how can you tell when you fall? oh yeah
how do you know what you want? oh yeah
makes no sense at all
black hole love

black hole love
black hole love
black hole love
black hole

    Lyric CorrectionTechnically not a correction, but an addition. The original lyrics were: Let's do it punk, in a garbage truck, and the idea of a lost couple (such as my boy friend and I have been for years) climbing into the back of a garbage truck to be crushed along with the rest of the detritus (I wouldn't say trash, one interpretation of the "liebestod" aria that ends Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde" is "To be wafted away on the breath of the world" ("Welt Atem's wehenden All, versinken, ertrinken, unbewussst..")).
    I like that much better. The decision to end life rather than the "accidental" or otherwise drug overdose. Can't imagine why they changed it except that it rhymes better??
    Jerry and I have been together many years. Shoplifting drag that didn't fit fits the lyrics of this song so well. The first time I heard it on Brandon Liebermann's "Drinking from Puddles" on Portland Oregon's KBOO, during the first ominous chords he said something like "life is hard, but you've just got to keep on.."
    It is a heartbreaking song, and one that has become "our song." Two queers, one schizophrenic, the other (me) so angered by the idiocy of the world that we feel so far at the edge of everything that we are about to fall off the edge of the flat world...who would have thought of us?
