  1. Interesting picture. Did you pick it out or it came with the song? Very ominous and calming at the same time. BTW, cool song!

  2. It would be fun to dance to this song, even though it is so serious. I was surprised to like it. :)
    The world is broken.

  3. The lyrics are from Charles Bukowski:

    A Need For Glue

    Broken into echelons
    Broken like bits of burnt toast
    Broken into me
    Broken into thou

    Broken broken broken

    Broken into buses going by
    Broken into ladies in green getting onto elevators
    Broken into smoke and sleep and no sleep
    Broken into a wrong number
    Broken like Alka-seltzer
    Broken like a window
    a widow
    a moth
    a mouth
    a month
    a minute

    Broken like my mother
    my father
    my loves
    my years

    Broken like Ernie
    Like a fish pulled out of violet water
    Broken like a string
    Broken like fingers
    new years

    Broken like a toilet
    a bottle
    an eye

    Broken like men
    Broken like dogs

    The wars and the days and the nights
    the cars
    the streets
    the hedges

    The fences

    The doctor crying on the balcony
    The whole city like vomit across the plain

    Broken like Marciano
    Like Napoleon
    Like Adolf

    Broken like a dish
    a leg
    a tricycle

    A man comes to my door selling needles and thread
    I send him away on his crutch
    Turn back into the room
    Find it
    Find it broken
    The watches and the ways and the faucets
    All is terminated
    The end is a dirty piece of bone

    The entire world sobs like an old woman.
