"Pitiful" as written by and Ken/edwards Andrews....
Down by the railroad tracks I will enjoy you
Can't feel a single thing that won't fade away
We'll laugh like we always do when we hear the whistle
So high and satisfied, let's sleep for a spell

Pitiful laughable, once again silent
You're pitiful laughable, once again silent

Down at the carpet shop you want to cut me
The patterns are laughing out, I know it's not fair
Go ahead roll me up in your detachment
I'm here to decorate your fear for awhile

You want to hold on to me, I want to hold out on you
That's what you'll tell yourself as I fade away
Into your isolation

    General Commenti actually think alot of thier songs have duel meanings, usually drugs and realationships cause they make eachother so difficult, but you are right, 99% of that cd is about drugs and addiction

    General CommentGod I love how naiive I was growing up with this album. This site has proven that Fantastic Planet was nothing but drugs, but still I hold on to whatever traces of old interpretations I once had for these songs still lingers. "You want to hold on me, I want to hold out on you" that strikes me as a girl who is tricking herself that the relationship she is in is not only for the sake of sex. I guess it is me who was the tricked ha ha ha!
