Oh honeybear, honeybear, honeybear
Mascara, blood, ash, and cum
On the Rorschach sheets where we make love

Honeybear, honeybear, honeybear
Fuck the world
Damn straight malaise
It may be just us who feel this way

But don't ever doubt this
My steadfast conviction
My love you're the one I want to watch the ship go down with
The future can't be real
I barely know how long a moment is
Unless we're naked getting high on the mattress
While the global market crashes
As death fills the streets we're garden variety oblivious
You grab my hand and say in I-told-you-so voice
It's just how we expected

Everything is doomed
And nothing will be spared
But I love you honeybear
Honeybear, honeybear, honeybear

You're bent over the altar
And the neighbors are complaining
That the misanthropes next door are probably conceiving a Damien.
Don't they see the darkness rising
Good luck fingering oblivion
We're getting out now while we can
You're welcome boys
Have the last of the smokes and chicken
Just one Cadillac will do to get us out to where we're going
I brought my mother's depression
You've got your father's scorn
And a wayward aunt's schizophrenia

But everything is fine
Don't give into despair
Cause I love you honeybear

    General CommentCynics attract. Find someone who shares your dark view of the world and the darkness becomes irrelevant.

    (About his girlfriend, Emma, who stars in the "Nancy From Now On" video. It's sweet to see/read him talk about her in interviews, because he does kind of seem obsessively in love with her.)

    General CommentI'm not claiming that it does so on purpose, but I sort of think of this song as mocking Death Cab's "I Will Follow You into the Dark."

    General Commenthow 2 people can not care about society
    how they are right in doing so
    but also how they are wrong
    both

    General Commentthere seems to be two perspectives. the world is going to shit in two different ways. the couple might worry the world will be swallowed up by violence and chaos, and the neighbours are waiting for Oblivion. for both perspectives, the danger comes from the other.
