Oh, Honeybear, Honeybear
Honeybear, ooh
Mascara, blood, ash and cum
On the Rorschach sheets where we make love
Honeybear, Honeybear
Honeybear, ooh
Fuck the world, damn straight malaise
It may be just us who feel this way

But don't ever doubt this, my steadfast conviction
My love, you're the one I wanna watch the ship go down with
The future can't be real, I barely know how long a moment is
Unless we're naked, getting high on the mattress
While the global market crashes
As death fills the streets we're garden-variety oblivious
You grab my hand and say in "I-told-you-so" voice
"It's just how we expected"

Everything is doomed
And nothing will be spared
But I love you, honeybear
Ooh, ooh

Honeybear, honeybear
Honeybear, ooh
Ooh, ooh

You're bent over the altar and the neighbors are complaining
That the misanthropes next door are probably conceiving a Damien
Don't they see the darkness rising? Good luck fingering oblivion
We're getting out now while we can
You're welcome, boys, have the last of the smokes and chicken
Just one Cadillac will do to get us out to where we're going
I've brought my mother's depression
You've got your father's scorn and a wayward aunt's schizophrenia

But everything is fine
Don't give into despair
'Cause I love you, honeybear
Ooh, oh

Honeybear, honeybear
Honeybear, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Cynics attract. Find someone who shares your dark view of the world and the darkness becomes irrelevant. (About his girlfriend, Emma, who stars in the "Nancy From Now On" video. It's sweet to see/read him talk about her in interviews, because he does kind of seem obsessively in love with her.)

    I'm not claiming that it does so on purpose, but I sort of think of this song as mocking Death Cab's "I Will Follow You into the Dark."

    there seems to be two perspectives. the world is going to shit in two different ways. the couple might worry the world will be swallowed up by violence and chaos, and the neighbours are waiting for Oblivion. for both perspectives, the danger comes from the other.

    It’s June 2020 and I’m stuck on this song. We’re on a plateau with COVID 19 as the markets crash and our zany president tries to make America racist again. They only need one Cadillac to get where they’re going, but they don’t need smokes or chicken.
