"Note To Self" as written by and Neil Hannon....
Restate my assumptions
Heaven and hell
Do not exist
Restate my assumptions
If you die you do so
At your own risk

Into the heart of darkness
Beyond the point of no return

Restate my assumptions
Beauty is not
The same thing as youth
Restate my assumptions
Only one thing beautiful
That's the truth

Into the heart of darkness
Beyond the point of no return

What the fuck is happening?
Where has everybody gone?
What the hell is going on?
There is nothing as frightening as being alone

Restate my assumptions
The writer writes for himself
Not for you
Restate my assumptions
A song is not a song
Until it's listened to

    General CommentIt's a song about artists and the relationship they have with their work and with the audience. Do they write for themselves or for people?

    General CommentIt's only about that at the surface level. What makes it a great song is its obvious subliminal meaning on existence and why are we here and all those kind of philosophical questions. Basically we don't exist without others.
