Last week I could not believe what I would see the tears rolled down softly. Nudged down the stairs oh so sadly. We could steal the truth to never be seen. One stair. Two stairs. Three stairs go spiraling. At best a cracked head will stop your smiling. Playful blood streams trickling and smirking. At the bottom of a stairwell I saw you. I swear... One stair. Two stairs. Three stairs go spiraling. Waiting...I'm waiting...

    General Commentso i'm always left wondering, what does this song have to do with leonard cohen? did he write a poem about someone falling down stairs, or actually witness it, or what? as far as i know the guy is still alive. as amazing and creepy and awesome as this song is, i don't know enough about lc to get the meaning. someone help me out.

    also. i think pg 99's 'creepy' stuff, ie the coc and mr splits, is some of their best. also btfpiw, sonnet to both ugly and murderous, etc. their weird, atmospheric 'horror music' really displayed their talent. god, i still obsess over this band constantly. as i said the other day.. i have a crush on pg 99.
