Whole album is beautiful imagery, although my favorite lyrics are from He Doesn't Know Why.

And you will try to do what you did before
Pull the wool over your eyes for a week or more
Let your family take you back to your
Original mind

He takes what should be such a comforting image and twists it to be so dark.

agreed, such a great song, also:

In the town one morning I went
Staggering through premonitions of my death
I don't see anybody that dear to me

Damn, it's weird how an album with such twisted imagery is still such comfort music to me. Oliver James is pretty dark too, "Oliver James/Washed in the rain/No longer" with that tapping is such a great way to end the album.

yes, as long as it sounds wonderful the lyrics can be bleak and still somehow reassuring i don't know
why (get it), damn this is poignant:

On the kitchen table that your grandfather did make,
You in your delicate way will slowly clean his face.
And you will remember when you rehearse the actions of
An innocent and anxious mother full of anxious love.
