Slept

Got any interesting thoughts on a set of lyrics? Any that don't involve the word "indeed"? Find yourself struggling to decipher all those obtuse references Von makes? Read "1959 And All That" and still no clearer? Postcards found lying in a skip around the back of the Chemists can be found here... Don't say you weren't warned.

Surely too many references to multiple girls for that to be the case? And the "girl too far with pale blue lips" suggests something altogether more disturbing. The prostitution angle makes more sense to me, especially with the repeated "shake me down again" (something the local police might do...)
i refer you to mrfiend's observation re. von's love of multiple meanings. mr marx remained convinced that "carefull lingers by the door" (some kind of stranger) was about him, despite the songs overall meaning as given by eldritch.

If I may purloin a quote from Velvet Goldmine, I think Eldritch lives in constant fear of not being misunderstood.

So via a discussion of films watched in A-Level language classes, I ended up on the Bahnhof Zoo article (c/o Wir Kinder Vom...) and noticed the reference. Did a double-take, since I remembered suggesting it, and didn't think it was there at the time. Googling for my original post turned up this page of the thread.

Cut to the first page of the thread - December '08 (3rd and 4th, respectively):

Motz wrote:This also came to mind earlier. Am I being really slow, or was it actually not this obvious?
And looking at the diff, it seems it was added by someone the day after I posted the suggestion. 99% sure I wasn't the one to do it - far too handwavy in my own mind ;)

Seems like a plausible Zoo for :von:'s protagonist to have woken up in.
