“Don’t call the doctor, I can’t bear his grin, it’s too late for him…Don’t call the preacher, I will not confess my sins, it’s too late for him…But even if Jesus Christ himself, even if some great whisperer could bring me back to health…Honey, you can light those candles and watch as they burn out…But don’t you have better things to think about?”

He’s streaming the whole thing here,
and here’s a video of a live recording of the title track.
