Jenny Hval - The Great Undressing

[Spoken Intro: Annie Bielski and Zia Anger]
It's fruit with cake and like, cinnamon, it's very fruity and good
What's this album about, Jenny?
It's about vampires
No!
Yeah
What?
Well, it's about more things than that but, a large theme of it is—
That is so basic. "It's about vampires!"
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 in-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 in-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 staged ritual undressing taking a place of consummation
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

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