"Oh, Comely" is my favorite song of theirs, with some of my favorite lyrics - ever.  Jeff Mangum is quite the wordsmith. enjoy.

'Thunderous sparks from the dark of the stadiums,
The music and medicine you needed for comforting.
So make all your fat fleshy fingers to moving,
And pluck all your silly strings, bend all your notes for me.
Soft silly music is meaningful magical,
The movements were beautiful, all in your ovaries.
All of them milking with green fleshy flowers,
While powerful pistons were sugary sweet machines.
Smelling of semen all under the garden
Was all you were needing when you still believed in me."


p.s. Keep your eyes peeled for issue 08, it's well on it's way. Your eyeballs must be dry from keeping your eyes peeled for so long. And for that my friends, I am sorry.  This baby was a hard one to squeeze out....but it's oh so cute and adorable!
