Once I thought I was in love
But that was a mistake
For it was a warm feeling
Wrapped around me like a shawl
Learn to love the corners
And the angles of the world
To not love them you'll never live
The only peace is death.

Love isn't a glow or a song in the heart
It's bony fingers tugging through your hair
It's sharp hipbones bruising blue your thigh
It's saying something softly that goes unheard.

Love snarls up the patterns
Of everything you know
It doesn't send you off to space
But buries you instead
Love holds on to gravity
And gravity is love
To love another human is
A puzzle for the head.

    General CommentThis is a brilliant fast paced anxiety ride with elements of jazz, hip hop and pram's lo-fi experimental sensibilities sewn into the music. The lyrics are very dark and sinister about the concept of love and obsession. Something maybe darker is projected in the second paragraph. I also thnk it's saying how love can be seen as this truly wonderful thing but in reality it isn't. Pram always throw many shades and tones into the equation which are like puzzle's for the head
