I thought I told you
Not to be so nice
I thought I’d hold you
Just once or twice
But you stayed around
All this time
If I didn’t go
You’d probably have changed
But because I’m gone
I still see you the same
It’s like you’re frozen
Time doesn’t change you
You’re still around
And you’re the same
Sometimes I see you
You’re in a dream
Just like you were
A long time ago
I’ll take what you give me
This memory
I don’t need nothing else
I made you this way
I took your life
Put it in a box
I pray at your gravestone
Remembering when
You walked my path
You slept in my bed
It’s a long, long time
I’ve got a pain in my head
But you gave me an earthquake
Everything is rearranged
I take this new place
As the world is now
It’s just I remember
Your frozen image
You wild, wild thing
You gave me a jungle
To cut my way through
The beasts and the dangers
Made me what I am
So walk with me, frozen beauty
As I reclaim my life
I’m sure that you’re melting
Some other place I don’t know

    Song MeaningThe narrator mourns the death of a lover that he has murdered and reflects on how she changed his world. The narrator still perceives the lover as alive and able to help him 'reclaim' his life by the reassurance her 'frozen image' somehow provides him. Jandek's lyrics can ramble, but they are deliberate and written with purpose and style. Very Freudian.
