I had a thought just then
Nearly did me in
But I hummed and said 'no'
Just to make it go
This is the crude discipline
That keeps me running
A honeycomb spun
Could I spin it any thinner?

Should I hoard all my money
Or spend it all in one night
On the biggest woman
That I can find

Well it doesn't seem to matter much
And worse still this tremendous touch
To conquer what I will
To turn without a chill
And feeling open still
And wanting to be filled

Seek and ye shall find
You need more seeking time
And when I overcome
Nothing rises to meet me

Destroy everything
Examine the remains
Destroy everything
Then rebuild it again

This is the crude discipline
That keeps me running...

    General CommentHi, I hear some of these lines in a different way. Here it is what I understand, even if I'm not really sure:

    Nearly did me in= Nearly did me end
    But I called and said 'no'= But I hung and said 'no'
    On the biggest woman= I'm the biggest moron
    And worse still this tremendous touch= And wear still...
    Return without a chill= And turn...

    In the part 'A honeycomb spun/ Could I spin it any thinner?', the only word I can clearly spot is 'Honeycomb'.
    Thanks for posting anyway!
