I Love You in Your Tragic Beauty
by The Legendary Pink Dots

I watched you in your tragic beauty walk beneath my window.
Eyes aimed high, but unfocused . . . . sure, you never noticed me.
You always wore the same dress; always bore the same
expression: "It's a loveless world so what's the point of looking?
Let it be . . ." I considered throwing roses--thought I'd maybe
wave a flag. Had to try and force some small connection--
but, there's a snag. It's my confession that I watch you in
my tragic isolation. In my fear . . . that's the way it's been
for years. That's the way it will always be . . .

I'm 372 years old and I'm listening to this song because I have ears.

Enjoy your youth! It doesn't last.

When I saw the Pink Dots in Cambridge a couple years ago, my favorite moment of the show was in between songs, someone in the audience called out a request, "Tragic Beauty!"

Edward leaned over the microphone slowly, and in his low, ghoulish whisper of a voice he responded, "No."

Yup. He did that a bunch here, too. "Lisa's Party!" "Nope." "Princess Coldheart!" "Nope." Until somebody hit upon City of Needles, and he kind of perked up a bit, and said "okay", and launched into a raucous, cacophonous version of that song. The end of that fucker was pretty close to what a nitrous oxide rush sounds like.


"It's my confession that I watched you in my tragic isolation"

Beautiful song; beautiful voice; beautiful lyrics.

No disrespect to the Floyd, but this album is Dark Side of the Moon for those in the know...
