Of Montreal - She Ain't Speakin' Now Lyrics




Like some sepulchral tableaux
I sit frozen holding your hand
Though I'm trying to think only
Positive thoughts I understand

That this tomorrow
May not be the tomorrow
That your eviscerating suffering will end
Oh, will you ever be yourself again?

Girl with the flu, I hear the death rune
She ain't doing well
Her eyes they seem cast and fatherless
Her psyche's cracked or
Anyhow, she ain't speakin' now

Nightfall, like some leaden sea
Dilates as I hold vigil by your bed
Watching the pillowcase soaking with sweat around your head

I can't repel this snaking veil of morbidity
That's disfiguring the seraph of your face
Oh, the organisms been debased

Girl with the flu, I hear the death rune
She ain't doing well
Her eyes they seem cast and fatherless
Her psyche's shattered or anyhow she ain't speakin now

You scream that the books
Are falling off of the shelves on to you
But I can't see them
Your hallucination ravings
I'm writing them all down so
You can read them
When your mind no longer aches
And your febrility breaks

Girl with the flu, I hear the death rune
She ain't doing well
Her eyes they seem cast and fatherless
Her psyche's cracked or anyhow she ain’t speakin now

Girl with the flu, I hear the death rune
She ain't doing well
Her eyes they seem cast and fatherless
Her psyche's shattered or anyhow she ain't speakin now

  18. Klara

    Love the new album, but I wish the music videos would be less "arty and indie". I love music videos like david bowie's "the stars are out tonight" and "the next day", who doesn't necessarily have a story. But aren't covered in filters and are open for interpretation.

    DonutFather

    I completely agree. I don't mind the filters but the way they use them, it doesn't work with the video at all. I'm really fond of of Montreal's older, animated music videos. I also like the brief psychedelic scenes from Sails, Hermaphroditic.

    Andrea

    I think the video is very clever actually, considering the lyrics.

    It's like a hallucination caused by the flu/high fever
