"Raisans" as written by and Joseph Donald Mascis Jr.....
The lights exploded
She stood burning in front of me
She ripped my heart out and gave it to me
My eyes wouldn't open, cemented to her face
Have I begun a feeble chase?
I'll be down, I'll be around
I'll be hanging where eventually you'll have to be
I'll just stare and hope you'll care
It's only everything standing in front of me
I know what you did to me
I know what you did was wrong
You're allowed to torture me
Wait a moment until I'm gone
I know you're the ticket, you gotta be
Cause I let you be alone for long
Got to be so completely
Got to be so I can't hang on
I'll be down, I'll be around
I'll be hanging where eventually you'll have to be
I'll just stare and hope you'll care
It's only everything standing in front of me
I'll be down, I'll be around
I'll be hanging where eventually you'll have to be
They're not there, you're standing there
Now you'll have to decide the fate of my sanity

    General CommentI don't blame you

    That guy in the background during the quiet bit creeps me out

    But I'm not complaining, it all adds to the atmosphere of the song.

    General CommentShe stood burning in front of me
    She ripped my heart out and gave it to me
    My eyes wouldn't open, cemented to her face
    Have I begun a feeble chase?
    I'll be down, I'll be around
    I'll be hanging where eventually you'll have to be
    I'll just stare and hope you'll care
    It's only everything standing in front of me

    I feel like I've been living these lyrics over the past few months.

    General CommentWhat a brilliant song and what a brilliant album!!
    There should be a lot more comments on a song like this.

    Anyway I think it's pretty clear what the actual song is about, J being rejected or used by some girl that he loves. I am curious as why it's called Raisans though.
