And two sad mice / chew up your bed

I am feeling at peace with the world right now, perhaps brought out by this self imposed solitude and giving ol’ Bonnie “Prince” Billy’s 2006 release another go. Perhaps it is the fact that it is warm outside again, and with it a false sense that things are going to be ok.

I especially like the imagery of the third verse of this song:
When the fever hits your forehead  / and two sad mice chew up your bed / and you call on God / but God is dead…

Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy: Love Comes To Me

  1. This has nothing to do with Bonnie, Prince, or Billy but how do you feel about some Sagonese this friday night with Katie, Sheena, Brooke, myself, you and Hayden? I hope it’s positive! (many of these people are not confirmed, but it should be a go)

  2. This has everything to do with Bonnie, Prince, and Billy.

    Great album. Along with Joanna Newsom, my 2 favourites of the year I think. I should make a list.

    I’ll try to setup a practice for this weekend. The day approaches.
