Saw her at Go kissing girls, what a shock I said you must be an artist She muttered her reply, I was judging her friend As the DJ played a dead jam No one wants to dance They're outside smoking cigarettes Matthew was there, yes, he gave me the eye Saying, "It doesn't kill to try" then blue lights all around Eva, I'm sorry, but you will never have me To me you're just some faggy girl And I need a lover with soul power And you ain't got no soul power Eva, I'm sorry, but you will never have me To me you're just some faggy girl And I need a lover with soul power No, you ain't got no soul She lead me outside to the church with the swing There I was her confessor Her come on made me blush, was her crush for the night? Until I screamed, 'Stop' ?Hey, you must be aware I'm not alone I've got a tigress back at home and besides You wouldn't know what to do with me" And under the blue lights you see them gossiping Gossiping, gossiping, gossiping, gossiping Gossiping, gossiping Eva, I'm sorry, but you will never have me To me you're just some faggy girl And I need a lover with soul power And you ain't got no soul power Eva, I'm sorry, but you will never have me To me you're just some faggy girl And I need a lover with soul power And you ain't got no soul power No, you ain't got no soul power No, you ain't got no soul power No, you ain't got no soul power Say you ain't got no soul power No, you ain't got no soul

    General Comment:Actually, PortionsForFoxes only has the more rumored part of the story. They were divorced, but now they're back to being boyfriend and girlfriend.

    "My wife and I had a daughter. But then, kind of in an unconventional sort of way I reacted—well probably maybe very conventional—but I guess I reacted in a negative way to her pregnancy and having a daughter and stuff. At first I wasn't really capable of accepting it. It was really difficult because it's such a lifestyle shift. All of the sudden all these things are changing internally and externally, and it was totally freaking me out, and I was trying to balance being in a band and touring and all that and also being a father and being supportive to my wife—because I couldn't, if I'm going to be on tour, I can't be there with her, and if I'm going to be with her I can't be on tour—so it was conflict that I couldn't resolve, which eventually led to this intense depression period. And as a result of the depression, all of these paranoia and anxiety problems were popping up. And I just started totally freaking out, like a total collapse, which I've never ever gone through before. And eventually my wife and I split up, and we got a divorce, and she moved back to Norway, and I went through this hedonistic period, and all this turmoil and all this craziness was going on in my life. The record represents all that, that journey that I went through.



    Luckily, I was able to come back and sort things out, and figure things out in my mind, so now, even though we're still divorced, we're living together. So, like, she's my girlfriend now. (laughs) You know, we're raising our daughter together—so the record kind of represents that. The first half of the record is like—you can kind of sense a lot of tension and turmoil and stuff, and then there's this 11-minute song that just is like a total just primal scream of a song, you know, like everything, it's just kind of like, just lay it out there. And after that, it's sort of a release. And then from that point on the record becomes a lot lighter and a lot happier sounding, sort of these weird little dance numbers. So yeah, in that way it sort of reflects what was going on in my life and how my life is a lot better. I feel a lot happier, and my relationships are better, and everyone's getting along, and things are working out in a cool way, and I'm super happy to be a father, super happy to be involved in the circle."

    General Comment:i will forever love kevin barnes for writing heimdelllsswhatever like a promethean curse. Come on chemicals!! Biggest insight i have ever received about my own depression! My brother was comparing them to elliott smith the other day upon hearing them for the first time. Must be why Jon Brion is such a fan!

    General Comment:Oh my god, me too. Favorite off the new one. It appears to be about a girl who really liked one of them, and obviously it was not reciprocated.

    General Comment:Not every comment needs to be about what the song means, you're allowed to say you like the song and leave it at that y'know.

    "you must be aware I'm not alone
    I got a tigress back at home
    and besides, you wouldn't know what to do with me"

    Brilliance.

    General Comment:I would say that these need fixing:

    "said it doesn't kill to try" ... the "said" should be "saying"

    "and there's blue lights all around" ... the "and there's" should be "then"

    General Comment:"for a shock" is "what a shock"

    It doesn't sound like "so a hot girl" either. It might be "saw her at go" ... I can't really tell on that one.
