i want to hear it loud
i want to hear it true
sometimes i like the darker clouds and i feel like feeling blue
i drown myself in music, light another cigarette
i know i shouldn’t do it, but they’re so fucking poetic
tragic music scars to prove it

i want to feel the pain
it helps the heart to grow
when i’m puking in the drain you know it’s murder on the throat
i’m drinking like Bukowski
light another cigarette
i wear my heart on my sleeve doing nothing to protect it
tragic music scars to prove it.

i want to be alone until i just explode from pure grain fumes exhaled and lighting up a smoke
i’m digging for the car keys cause i’m out of cigarettes
thoughts of parking on train crossings with a mix tape in the tape deck

beat heart
beat heart sweet.
beat heart sweet stereo
i’m going to fall apart
beat heart
beat heart sweet
beat heart sweet stereo
i’m going to break your heart

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
