Let's face it, Leonard Cohen is an underground hit, but I don't mean in the alternative rock sort of way. Everyone loves him without every knowing or admitting to it. It's not out of shame, just out of lack of thought about the man.
This particular song is Leonard talking about or to himself. While that can get too confusing/deep if you think about it too much, the lyrics are spectacular and provoking, and the overall tone just plain fascinating.
