"Opus 40" as written by Jonathan Donahue, Sean Mackowiak, Adam Snyder and David Fridman....
Well she tossed all night like a raging sea
Woke up and climbed from the suicide machine
With her Spanish candles and her Persian poems
Stuck on the rocks inside opus 40 stoned
And scratching her wrists in the pouring rain
She collapses down upon the ocean floor again

Tears in waves minds on fire
Nights alone by your side

Catskill mansions buried screams I'm alive
She cried but I don't know what it means
Somewhere out there across the moonlit sands
There's a line drawn like the lines on her own hand
And slamming her eyes locking the door
She collapses down upon the ocean floor again

Tears in waves minds on fire
Nights alone by your side

Tears in waves minds on fire
Nights alone by your side

    General CommentI always figured it was about some wealthy but lonely person who tried to kill herself at Opus 40 and spent the night in the sea but somehow she survived it. She sees that there must be kind of divine reason why she survived but figures she's only go to eventually anyway so just throws herself in again.
