Wonderful Remark
Van Morrison Lyrics


How can you stand the silence
That pervades when we all cry?
How can you watch the violence
That erupts before your eyes?
How can you tell us something
Just to keep us hangin' on?
Something that just don't mean nothing
When we see it, you are gone
Clinging to some other rainbow
While we're standing, waiting in the cold
Telling us the same old story
Knowing time is growing old

That was a wonderful remark
I had my eyes closed in the dark
I sighed a million sighs
I told a million lies, to myself, to myself

How can we listen to you
When we know your talk is cheap?
How can we ever question
Why we give more and you keep?
How can your empty laughter
Fill a room like ours with joy?
When you're only playing with us
Like a child does with a toy?
How can we ever feel the freedom
Or the flame lit by the spark
How can we ever come out even
When reality is stark?

That was a wonderful remark
I had my eyes closed in the dark, yeah
I sighed a million sighs
I told a million lies, to myself
To myself
Baby, to myself
Baby, to myself, to myself
To myself, to myself

"Better to be king for a night than schmuck for a lifetime."

Ah, but what about a werwolf on malaria drugs?

Django Manhattan

Better to be a king for a night and a schmuck for the rest of your life, than a schmuck for a lifetime.

John-Pierre Richard

@John Kenneth Wiseman Heh-heh .. You're right 😄 Italians are famous for doing that 😄

John Kenneth Wiseman

Dan Walrus

Rupert Pupkin, ladies and gentlemen! Rupert Pupkin!

John Kenneth Wiseman

it took me a second viewing to really love King of Comedy. oh my god i love it now

Jason Neil

Jeff Powanda AFTER HOURS is tremendous! Fantastic film. But this is still fantastic to me. Terrific performances (def one of DeNiro’s best most transformative roles) and is dripping with dark comedy and has some of the greatest scenes of discomfort I’ve ever seen in a movie. Sorry you didn’t care for it.

Jeff Powanda

@Jason Neil After Hours is Scorsese's best comedy. The King of Comedy isn't funny at all.

Terry Dockter

Agreed. A comical study of narcissistic detachment from reality. Pupkin was the ultimate first class schmuck. "I gotta go Liza, yeah I gotta catch a bus."
