The thing that leaves you in the darkness is her.
The thing that maybe once seemed harmful is her.
The lamp, the car, the door.
The lamp, the slip, the floor.

You wouldn't eat unless I told you so.
I never knew that you would burn it so slow.
The mouth, the breath, the smoke.
The mouth, the breath, the choke.

(Niagra)

Who would have thought
I'm maybe caught.
Lover, don't do anything!
The choke.
Lover, don't do anything!
The choke.

The thing that leaves you in the darkness is her.
The thing that maybe once seemed harmful is her.
The lamp, the car, the door.
The lamp, the slip, the floor.

Is this attention just a burden to bear?
A sick reminder that I didn't care?
The mouth, the breath, the smoke.
The mouth, the breath, the choke.

    I haven't seen it yet, but will.

    Has anyone seen it or know whether I'm on the right track?

    General Commenti'm pretty sure that this song is my favorite. the line 'the thing that maybe once seemed harmful is her' just feels very sad to me. sort of pathetic and desperate, as well as 'you wouldn't eat unless i told you so'--the person in the relationship who's in total control and then the person with none of the control. but sort of switched up, because it seems like the person who has the control ends up bearing the burden of the attention from the person they supposedly 'don't care' about; it's a really perverse and gorgeous song.

    i love it a ton.
