about

Your friend gets exiled to a monastery by her mother for “falling in love with the pain”. It’s here that she discovers “something inside of her dying”. This song is about mythologizing someone and believing in their powers in the face of mental or physical deterioration. I draw an analogy between deftness at the video game “Golden Eye” and wellness because some of the most serious conversations I’ve had with my friends happened while playing Nintendo 64.

lyrics

You were taken away to a place near the river,
your mother confessed you had nothing to give her

And in a room full of sisters not one was a sinner.
I thought you were a saint, guess you’re just a beginner

I’ve always suspected you had strange powers
winning at Golden Eye for hours.
They’re saying there’s something inside of you dying
so you borrowed a car, some tapes and you’re driving

You came into my vision - a mathematician
and you tried talking to God but he just mumbled a lot

He said “it’s simple and plain - you fell in love with the pain
and now the pain follows you cause love’s not a game”

I’ve always suspected you had strange powers
winning at Golden Eye for hours.
They’re saying there’s something inside of you dying
so you borrowed a car, some friends and you’re driving

I’ve always suspected you had strange powers
winning at Golden Eye for hours.
They’re saying there’s something inside of you dying
so you borrowed a car, some friends and you’re driving

In a room full of sisters not one was a sinner.
I thought you were a saint, I guess you’re just a beginner.
