Luke from Manchester, Uk"who will survive..." is a sample, not a lyric.
Stacie from Plano, TxAllegedly, "I'm already dead" were Abigail Folger's last words.
Pj from Someplace, MbThe spoken bit is:
"I keep a close watch on this heart of mine / I walk the line, I walk the line", which is from Johnny Cash's "I Walk the Line". Sort of a weird way of sampling, I guess.
Rob from Detroit , MiThis song is not about Charles Bukowski. It may mention it, but it's actually about the life and times of another Charles...mass murderer Charles Manson, leader of the psychotic Manson Family. The line "cut through the bone, cut through the wire," references the attack on the Sharon Tate/Roman Powlanski house, when three members of the Family cut the telephone wires outside the house, and broke in where they stabbed and shot Sharon Tate and four of her friends. The "I'm already dead" refrain is taken from Manson's 1970 testimony, in which he claimed that he couldn't really be punished for his crimes, because "I'm already dead." In fact the title of the song is a reference to The Beatles song, "Revolution 9", which supposedly inspired the murders. That's the reason for the audio clips at the beginning and end of the song. The song is entirely about the Manson Family...not Charles Bukowski...though he may be referenced.
Michael from Rohnert Park, CaInteresting fact: This osng is abot the great American poet Charles Bukowski. The line '...see the ordinary madness' is a reference to a film of the same title which portrays Bukowski as the hard-drinking, moody, poor, woman-loving and genius-level poet he was.
