well yeah, that's harsh line. and there are harsher lines in their music. but they hope someone chokes as they run away to be happy together.
ill admit to feeling pretty down after listening to their music sometimes. but it's not like, ( ), you know? that stagnant, cold misery, radiohead is so much more alive than that. even htdc is kinda serene. the panic is swirling around you but youre rocking back in forth in your little hole saying 'im not here this isnt happening' and managing to calm and soothe yourself a little.
i just dont like applying the word 'depressing' to things i feel good about listening to anymore. it's obligatory that a regular come and shoot that word down everytime its mentioned anyways.
