Default Pretentious dickbag

Should be 'whoever wants you alone'.

Does he think he sounds archaic and/or eloquent when using the wrong fucking word?

Whoever for he/she, whomever for him/her.

Opening line of the album too.

Cunt.

he thinks he's the bald daddy version of Stevie Nicks, so he says "whom" whenever possible (grammatically correct or not) and puts unnecessary "u's" in everything like he's British

these are just a couple of things i find myself unbothered by in my day to day life given i pay no mind whatsoever to the existence of CYR

I like that he spells words like "colour" correctly, however he does get a bit pretentious with words.

I think you're wrong, it's an inverted sentence.

The original lyrics:

Quote:
Whomever wants you alone
Whomever wants you atoned
It's with this prayer I disown
Whomever wants you alone
What he is saying

Quote:
With this prayer, I disown whomever wants you alone and whomever wants you atoned

He should get his words in the right order then.

Inverting sentences = bigger dickbag than erroneously using 'whomever'.

fucking board won't let me make new threads., but this seems thematically relevant:

~~~~~~
Songs like Whir are sorely missing from the later catalog
~~~~~~

just breezy acoustics with Iha leads. that's all i ask

last time he was anywhere close was some of the live takes from this zwan gig --> https://archive.org/details/zwan2003-02-08.shn
