At the time it came out it was too experimental to be considered pop.
Of course because we've listened to many of the songs a million times over in the last decade and because of the development of pop music since then most people don't really think of it being experimental. But, at the time it was.
Take the weakest thing in you
And then beat the bastards with it
And always hold on when you get love
So you can let go when you give it
But you are what you love
And not what loves you back
I guess that's why you keep
Calling me back
I'm fraudulent, a thief at best
A coward who paints a bullshit canvas
Things that will never happen to me
But at arm's length, it's Tim who said
I'm good at it, I've mastered it
Avoiding, avoiding everything
every normal man must be tempted, at times,
to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
and begin slitting throats.
