With tables and chairs
And holy books for all
With knives and forks
And a thousand miles to go

But brother, I love you
900 to go
One down
One down
Twenty five to go

Bad dog is barking
Where snow meets the sea
900 to go
One down

When it's time
Bury me
In my clothes

    General CommentInspired by John Franklin' expedition to find the Northwest Passage in 1845. The ship got frozen in the arctic ice and the crew tried to walk across the ice to safety - but because they were a) half-mad from hunger and lead poisoning, and b) British, they ended up trying to carry everything valuable they could salvage from the ship. Tables, chairs, bibles, silverware... The only thing they DIDN'T have was boots and coats. Everybody died. Some of them ate each other. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

    Oh, and great song. One of my favourite Breeders songs, actually.
