jim o’rourke’s damn fine lyrics


i said yesterday that i'm convinced that jim o'rourke is a musical genius. at the time i was simply talking about his compositions. but i spun through his 2001 album insignificance today and i submit that the same applies to his lyrics as well. see this site for a full list (plus discography and other extras. it can be slow loading), but i like these lines in particular:

Listening to you, reminds me of
A motor’s endless drone
And how the deaf are so damn lucky

-Memory Lame
