"Closedown" as written by Robert James Smith, Simon Gallup, Roger O'donnell, Porl Thompson, Laurence Andrew Tolhurst and Boris Williams....
I'm running out of time
I'm out of step and closing down
And never sleep for wanting hours
The empty hours of greed
And uselessly always the need to feel again
The real belief of something more than mockery
If only I could fill my heart with love

    General CommentThe whole album of Disengration is genius. This album got me into The Cure about 3 years ago, and these guys are brilliant. I was always anti-Cure since I was a die-hard Smiths fan (I guess Morrissy hates Robert Smith and vice-versa). While The Smiths remain my fav band forever, The Cure are great as well. Did I already say I LOVE this album? It is truly indispensable.

    General CommentThe song is about coming to the end of self-preoccupation then justifying the self-same with self-absorption.

    See how it builds extravagantly and fills and explores the definitive. All three instruments do the same thing at different times. Instruments are expressed definitively and independently.

    Exuberant and exhaustive song.
    The song is about the meaninglessness of self examination and the absorption it incurs.

    The drums never cease.

    They never change.

    They are frantic and searching and then they die.

    General CommentYes the whole album is absolutely brilliant. Actually it was the first CD I bought when I got a CD player, abandoning vinyl.

    @ rahtwinkle: you are not alone.
