A Crush

And track 6 from Petit Morts. This one's about a creepy stalker. I sing from his twisted, obsessive point of view.
The picture up there is famously known as "The Most Beautiful Suicide". On May 1, 1947, Evelyn McHale leapt to her death from the observation deck of the Empire State Building. Photographer Robert Wiles took a photo of McHale a few minutes after her death and was published in Life Magazine, I believe. She landed on a New York City cab. Her pose looks elegant and serene, her body laying on the crushed roof of the vehicle. (Crush, see what I've done there?)
