Jenny Hval – The Great Undressing (Uncensored)

[Spoken Intro]
J: It’s fruit with cake and like, cinnamon, it’s very fruity and good
What’s this album about, Jenny?
J: It’s about vampires
No?
J: Yeah
What?
J: Well, it’s about more things than that but, a large theme of it-
That is so basic, it’s about vampires
J: It’s about blood-

[Chorus]
Like capitalism
It works like unrequited love that way
It never rests
Just like I need the love I’m not getting from you
And all the people in the world
Are between you and I in that way
And in the way of love

[Verse 1]
You must be disgusted
But I need to keep writing because everything else is death
I’m self-sufficient, mad, endlessly producing
I don’t need money, I just need your love
Or your approval, anything

[Chorus]
Like capitalism
It works like unrequited love that way
It never rests
Just like I need the love I’m not getting from you
And all the people in the world
Are between you and I in that way
And in the way of love

[Verse 2]
Any sign is a promise of love, of being exposed
A stage ritual undressing taking a place of consumation
I’m here writing, working, making myself
Available for love
Making myself available for love
Because I love you
Because I love you
Because I love you

[Outro]
I just need a sign
Any recognition is a reward
Because I love you
