Every utterance can't be a masterpiece of poetry. To me, it's the way he sings his lyrics. Put down on paper they could appear quite trite.
This is a Morrissey song, so I suspect it's written about laying his head in a male lap. In which case, the 'almighty crack' in question would be an arse-crack, rather than one that gives life.The 'almighty crack' of the bombs. His face in the lap. The other almighty crack. The one that gives life.

Today's song is this Morrissey/Manzur composition from the Low in High School album.

Wha, musical, as in, "Boomer on the Roof"?Is it just me, or do quite a few of the songs on LIHS sound like they could be in musicals, especially on the second half of the album? I've never been able to shake that feeling. (Not saying it's good or bad, just kind of ... unexpected!)
