‘For a second that thought became a sword in my hand’

I’m on an XTC listening streak. When they get too Rundgren/Beatles-esque I tune out. When the drums and guitars clatter I get restless. This means our relationship will remain fraught for decades. I love this song because it gets to the problem of words and guitar — or words versus guitar. They’re meaningless and all that’s true.
