Ophelia Lyrics

Morning came to pieces without offering
Is it still real?
Precious little pistol beaten senseless
Till she can't feel

Still the moment's passing by
Its only the time that we could never stop
Early morning winter came
Been too close to be so close again
Never meant to be this cold
Its only the time that we could never stop
Still the moment's passing by
I'm letting Ophelia die

Daisy dusted lightly, so politely
Till she can't see
Itchy little trigger will deliver
What she wanted to be

Still the moment's passing by
Its only the time that we could never stop
Early morning winter came
Been too close to be so close again
Never meant to be this cold
Its only the time that we could never stop
Still the moment's passing by
I'm letting Ophelia die
I'm letting Ophelia die.

Hey I added this song to the list because it is one of my favorite Moist songs of all time. It's blistering, yet beautiful at the same time. Moist are definitely masters of the concept of being abrasively beautiful, where quality truly takes first priority. Moist doesn't get nearly enough credit, especially from the USA, and I would like, as a Texan, do give them that where it is due.

Damn this song is awesome. "I'm letting Ophelia die" is such a rad line.

The song is obviously inspired by Hamlet. I have a feeling that, if this song can actually be interpreted and isn't just something that David Usher thought sounded neat, that perhaps the song is from the perspective of Gertrude, who watches Ophelia drown herself. Or perhaps the chorus is from Ophelia's perspective, making reference to the fact that the play [well, at least at the time Ophelia dies] is set in winter.

"There's a daisy: I would give you some violets, but they withered all when my father died"
