    Well, I think he said it was about death, and that seems obvious to me. I don't get the "cyaninde of an almond" I get he's a palm reader. Are those lyrics 100%? The reference to the photograph and "dear listener... You were there and so was i... " I guess as humanity he holds us all accountable. From the first verse and the last I get the idea that he accepts the futility of life but has tp put a good face on for his kids at least. I think I really get what he's saying about "skull under your curls" underneath it all where just another part of the biological landscape. Creatures in the pageant. Great song. "bitter mechanics of life" wish I knew what is meant by "under my hat it reads the lines are all imagined"
