about

This song was inspired by Symbolist poetry and painting, including Félix Vallotton's "Rape of Europa."

lyrics

(J'ai plus de souvenirs que si j'avais mille ans.)

When we entered the harlot's house,
I saw you toast and spill red on your blouse.
"Ha, ha," you laughed and shook your curls.
We kissed and chocked on "lamplight swirls."

Mirror, mirror on the wall: who's the frailest of them all?

The notes I want to play for you, my Anna,
are just beyond the reach of my piano.

(Je suis un cimetière abhorré de la lune.)

We danced and clapped and moved our feet.
You pulled me down the lamp-lit street.
You sighed so hard it made me spin.
You sighed just like a violin.

Mirror, mirror in a ditch: who's the poorest of the rich?

The notes I want to play for you, my Anna,
are just beyond the reach of my piano.
The dust you feed me tastes just like ambrosia.
You lay on me just like you're my Europa.

Every word felt pained.
And we grew bored so soon.
And both our feelings waned,
'neath a honeymoon.
And every word we say feels like a cliché.
