Hailed brilliant, another combination
I'm assured that it's not your care
Hailed brilliant, another conversation
But it couldn't touch your Hemingway
But they can't distort our love again
But they can't distort our love again

And the failure of the Nile
To provide a modern life
Was the excuse that you waited for
And the failure of the Nile
To distinguish black from white
Was enough to break your bows and arrows

Lost lost lost in a sea of conjuncture (x13)
Lost, and you're on your way

And the failure of the Nile
To provide a modern life
Was the excuse that you waited for
And the failure of the Nile
To distinguish black from white
Was enough to break your bows and arrows

Hailed brilliant, another combination
I'm assured that it's not your care
Hailed brilliant, another conversation
But it couldn't touch your Hemingway
Juncture!
Juncture!

And the failure of the Nile
To provide a modern life
Was the excuse that you waited for
And the failure of the Nile
To distinguish black from white
Was enough to break your bows and arrows down
To the earth
To the ground.

    General CommentCouldn't touch your Hemingway? That's either the most ingenious way of labeling genitalia.. or it actually has some depth..

    Maybe saying that either him or a person might be a brilliant person, but they'll never live up to your expectations/idols (Hemingway) Basically saying, he/the person will never be good enough/worthy enough for you.
