We've talked about it in letters
And we've talked about it on the phone
But how you really feel about it
I don't really know


What's Yr Take on Cassavete's?
What's Yr Take on Cassavete's?
What's Yr Take on Cassavete's?
What's Yr Take on Cassavete's?
Misogynist? Genius?
Misogynist? Genius?
Misogynist? Genius?
Misogynist? Genius?


What's Yr Take on Cassavete's?(x4)
Alcoholic? Messiah?
Alcoholic? Messiah?
Alcoholic? Messiah?
Alcoholic? Messiah?


What's Yr Take on Cassavete's?(x4)
Genius? Misogynist? Alcoholic?
Hey where's Gena?
Genius? Misogynist?
Messiah? Alcoholic?


What's Yr Take on
What's Yr Take on
What's Yr Take on
What's Yr Take on Cassavete's?

    General CommentWith her film career and all, Johanna is excellent at using sounds to get a certain feeling across. Hence the dogs.

    General CommentJohanna? I didn't realize I said that until just now. I meant Sadie Benning, of course. Ah the consequences of sleep deprivation.

    General CommentGena was cassavetes' wife too. This song is about dealing with contradictory feelings about art. Like cassavetes, who is absolutely a genius and a misoginist too...so the song is about dealing with this as a feminist artist.
