"Trilby's Piano" as written by and Pete Townshend....
Your mother loves her brother
But her brother loves his lover
And his lover is my cover
My one and only other - my angel

My angel Trilby
Who said I will be
What I should still be
Genius would fill me - she loves Hymie

Only one Hymie
No one else on earth could ever blind me - like this
Or even find me - such bliss
If you were gone
You'd still be here

Only one Hymie
Why can't they see that life excites me
This boy ignites me
His family fights me
But he's still here

Only one Hymie...

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. It is about a widowed mother who places all her hopes in her brother, Hymie being a great man.

    General Commentim afraid thats wrong. this is the part in the story when the main character realizes that the girl he loves is in love with his jewish friend. i think when he says trilby he means the book trilby, trilby being the girl that everyone loves, but she is tone deaf, so the jewish hypnotist hypnotizes her into being a wonderful singer until the hypnotist dies of a heart attack, yada yada yada, she doesnt remember it. he is refering to how he has lost her love to the jewish kid, and in the story of wire and glass, there are the 3 unholy trinity of a jew, a muslim, and a christian, the girl is the muslim, and hymie(being a stereotypical name for a jew) is the other band mate. together they form the band named "glass" and the girl falls in love with him until he screws everything up and she falls in love with the other band mate.
