"It's out of love"

I believe i have a new favorite most disturbing song. Listen to Fistful of Love by Antony & The Johnsons without paying attention to the lyrics. The song's quite beautiful, building to an inspirational, joyous refrain.

Lyrics:

I was lying in my bed last night staring
At a ceiling full of stars
When it suddenly hit me
I just have to let you know how I feel

We live together in a photograph of time
I look into your eyes
And the seas open up to me
I tell you I love you
And I always will
And I know you can't tell me
I know you can't tell me

So I'm left to pick up
The hints, the little symbols of your devotion
So I'm left to pick up
The hints, the little symbols of your devotion

And I feel your fists
And I know it's out of love
And I feel the whip
And I know it's out of love
And I feel your burning eyes burning holes
Straight through my heart
It's out of love
It's out of love

I accept and I collect upon my body
The memories of your devotion
I accept and I collect upon by body
The memories of your devotion

And I feel your fists
And I know it's out of love
And I feel the whip
And I know it's out of love
And I feel your burning eyes burning holes
Straight through my heart
It's out of love, ooh hoo
It's out of love

Give me a little bit serious love
Give me a little full love
Be full of love

Fists, fists, fists full of love...

Such a gorgeous, cheerful song from the point-of-view of domestic abusee...music which is entirely necessary.

I believe that maddening would very much enjoy Antony & The Johnsons as Antony sounds like a mix of a more feminine Nina Simone crossed with Scott Walker. A less grotesque, but very, very nice Antony song is You Are My Sister (with special guest Boy George):



Hope There's Someone is lovely as well.
