I'd written a poem wherein
the sum of all the stars in the sky = the sum of all lights on earth
It eventually evolved (or devolved perhaps) into this song.
The poem I've long since lost.


Now In every heart there's a tiny filament
maybe it's something that you haven't quite discovered yet
it's just an incandescent arc that warms our blood through summer days
but wires can burn and wires can snap and winter's always on its way
So now our angels thought to find a way
to make our supernovas not so strained
they say "build a light bulb for every star up in the galaxy
so all our heavens can look down upon
everything you used to mean to me"

so no one hunts in neon lights these days
you never know when you'll become the pray
I been trying to find the ways to skin a wolf most delicately
the incisions aren't my finest baby
but I'm trying so hard you know
I mean it's not a simple surgery.
Maybe it only works if you believe...
It's just a call to prayer
the lights and sirens they'll ostentatiously
let us bow our heads together baby
to everything you used to mean to me

said don't believe
they say don't believe

We bought the stores all out of christmas lights
so somewhere that nebula it's still shining bright
the copper strands will stretch along from star to star so easily
that maybe you can just look up there and see now
everything you used to mean to me.

Catharsis is a religious experience. Sin is universal. The Gomorrans seek to blend the two into a transcendent soul happening. Seeing the them is like smoking a $50 cigar that's sealed with the sweat from a Cuban woman's inner thigh, or freebasing powdered absinthe: you'll never be quite the same person. You'll know something the others don't. The Gomorrans tarnish your soul, but in a good way. ... more
