    i think he's worth the topic starter :)

    high on amphetamines
    the moon is a lightbulb breaking
    it'll go around with anyone
    but it won't come down for anyone

    To make the scene like you always do
    goin' up stream down the avenue, to fuck some trophy boy that you win tonight at the bar.
    So bad, so far. you'll make him sad, shooting star.

    christ, ignore me

    all spit and spite you're up all night and down every day
    a tired man with only hours to go just waiting to be taken away
    getting in to the back of a car for candy from some stranger
    watching the parade with pinpoint eyes full of smoldering anger

    can't you ever treat anyone nice
    I think I'm gonna make the same mistake twice
    they draw the curtain, wait for a call
    pretty lucky if they get any kind of response at all

    like me :)

    which is what i love

    had to post all this one..

    I never really had a problem because of leaving
    But everything reminds me of her this evening

    So if I seem a little out of it, sorry
    But why should I lie?
    Everything reminds me of her

    The spin of the earth impaled a silhouette of the sun on the steeple
    And I got to hear the same sermon all the time now from you people
    Why are you staring into outer space, crying?
    Just because you came across it, and lost it

    Everything reminds me of her
    Everything reminds me of her
    Everything reminds me of her

    perplexis A change of scene, a change of style....

    Not just not crap, but absolutely brilliant.
    Definitely one of my favourites. One of the few singer-songwriters who I've consistently listened to, not got bored by when I grew up and who I still rate just as highly...

    Huge fan. Just discovered this old documentary (28 minutes). They didn't get a lot of time with him but i'm a fan so always good to see new stuff.

    ETA: I'd only watched the first 11 minutes when i said they didn't get a lot of time with him. It turns out they got a fair bit of time with him (including persuading him to fake cutting off his own right hand and getting a robot replacement).
