i'm sick again. in a blizzard lit by city streets, sll the night's salt and time have come to light in the morning. nature's what we've made of it. can't it just be nice to see me? nothing is without light. ah-ah-ah-ah i'm sick again. the bulb's dust-skin's just it's beginning. all night's pride and shame has been redeemed ny the shadows. the cure is the cause, but thinking happy thoughts works in a way. nothing is without light. ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah what does delay mean? i'll change my cheap woven clothing. can't let the devil recognize me. what does alone mean? i comed, muttering, "jesus." and with me "i'm coming" muttered jesus. i said "every face i saw was the same face, so may we all make it home safely, cuz nothing is without light." ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-ah ah-ah-ah-

    General CommentWell to people who think this song is about fucking the holy ghost, it can be looked at that way, but another. Just Holy fucking Ghost, the saying. Not the verb. You can think that what Tim means when he says, "I Comed" as something as ejaculation or as he died, coming to heaven, and when Jesus says, "I'm coming" means that Jesus is coming back to earth. This song is definitely about Tim's struggle with faith. It's obvious if you stop looking at it as a sexual thing, and look at it as someone who is trying to the see the light in everything. Good song. This is why I love Tim Kinsella.

    General CommentOwls always remind of my friend saying 'Owls are assholes", but I must say this band does a greatjob conveying some desperite emotion- and they do very well in this song in particular. I especially enjoy the break and all the clapping at the end-- Does anyone else think the singer whines like Bono sometimes?

    General CommentI love when the word 'fucking' is both a verb and an adjective. Like the holy ghost is fucking. Which is where the whole "I comed..." part comes in. It sounds like Tim is literally fucking the holy ghost.
