"Lemon Meringue" as written by John O'brien, Matthew Wilder and Annie Decatur Danielewski....
Hold on you've gotta wait just a minute
See the cookie jar
I've got my hand caught in it
Just let me try and explain

You know I've been a good girl
But I hit a limit
I know there's not a lot of logic in it
But my life's been feeling to me

(Like lemon)
Sometimes it tastes so bitter
(Like lemon)
I've gotta make it sweeter

Stop right there before I get bitter
(Bitter)
There's got to be a way to make it sweeter
(Sweeter)
A little more like lemon meringue

So the other day well I found me a lover
Had a little hustle under the covers
It was delicious to me
Can't you see me there
Day dreaming of our future
I painted such a pretty picture
But my prince he never got back to me

(Like lemon)
Sometimes it tastes so bitter
(Like lemon)
I've got to make it sweeter

Stop right there before I get bitter
(Bitter)
There's got to be a way to make it sweeter
(Sweeter)
A little more like lemon meringue

It is November sixth and we are in Madrid, Spain. It is a very special day
And to celebrate it Anne will sing a song

    General Commentyou guys really need to read House of Leaves to fully understand this album. it was meant to reciprocate the novel House of Leaves by Poe's brother, Mark Z. Danielowski. and the novel is meant to reflect their relationships with parents, but thats a whole nother story. the deal is...this song is about Karen's relationship with Holloway and Wax. before exploration 4 in the novel, Karen offers the team some lemon meringue pie. but it goes deeper, as she flirts with both of them behind her husbands back, and even even kisses Wax. and shes caught in the end when her husband views the Hi 8 films, but by then it doesnt matter. you really gotta read the book to get any of it...
