Nirvana be alone

No, I don't know what this song, "Pentecost Hotel," is about — except that it's not Christian. Post-Christian, yes; Christian, no. I do know that it was my favorite song during the summer of 1994, when my peers were listening to the other rock band called Nirvana. And it's still got the most beautiful melody and arrangement of any "rock" tune before or since (far more beautiful than the lyrics deserve), which is no doubt why it still is able to make me sad.
