how we work
longday afternoons mourning.
there's fruitflies on
the toothbrush and teeth
in the sink. pick and chews

time to come
clean. i'm eating
it up. time to
come to. and her
virgin birth perfect

in the room the women
come and go talking
of leonardo dicaprio

how many ways is there to count to konw if
someones dead

    a slightly altered line taken from 'the love song of j. alfred prufrock' by ts eliot. not sure how it fits within this context, but both the poem and the song are wonderful.

    General Commentreading the lyrics i feel as though i'm reliving a dream i once had. just a mess of different things all jumbled together that somehow fit. the music is mesmerizing.

    General Commentin the t.s. eliot poem, it's meant to symbolize that during that time, the wealthy and elite at their many parties would always be discussing topics such as michaelangelo without truly knowing or appreciating the artist, merely using it just as conversation. i think it applys to leonardo dicaprio at the time this was written in 97-98.

    General CommentThe way Tim sings in this song is so perfect against this music. The second verse, especially, blows my mind. It's like the best sounding thing I have ever heard.

    General CommentMan that T.S Eliot poem is depressing. This song led me to read that poem 5 times. Both song and poem are a little ambibuous, but nonetheless, this song is amazing and the lyrics are beautiful distorted.
