    Dave really was a genius. It would be hard to pick a favourite lyric- there's so many

    honestly tho, trigger warning, do not listen to that new album if you are feeling very down, it is great but is about as direct a suicide elegy as could be written, so possibly dangerous.

    Not heard all of it, but do you reckon the plan was to release it as an actual note and then check out?

    Have a listen to American Water.

    It's got David's lyrics and songs but Malkmus' guitar. Perfect combo.

    This is a great song with cheery lyrics. We have lost a true poet.

    Moments can be monuments to you
    If your life is interesting and true
    It's just the same for a man or a girl
    The meaning of the world lies outside the world
    People love people and they understand
    If you want to renovate your background mind
    A federal woman needs a municipal man
    People gotta synchronize to animal time
    You can't change the feeling but you can change your feeling about the feelings in a second or two
    People always come around
    I'm studying the ceiling on a little afternoon and when I paint my dining room
    People gonna come around
    I love to see a rainbow from a garden hose
    Lit up like the blood of a centerfold
    I love the city and the city rain
    Suburban kids with Biblical names
    People ask people to watch their scotch
    People send people up to the moon
    When they return, well, there isn't much
    People be careful not to crest too soon
    The drums march along at the clip of an IV drip
    Like sparks from a muffler dragged down the strip
    I really hope you'll come around
    It's sunny and 75, it feels so good to be alive,
    Come on, baby, don't stay inside
    Everybody's coming out tonight

    Have you heard 12 Crass songs by Jeffery Lewis? Worth a listen.
