Imaginative rehersals: I'm a big Leonard Cohen fan & on his latest CD, Ten New Songs, there is a tune called "In My Secret Life":

I smile when I'm angry
I cheat and I lie--
I do what it takes to get by
But I know what is wrong
And I know what is right
And I die for the truth
In my secret life.

Cohen extends the syllable /die/ in the penultimate line of the stanza in what must be one of the most subtle uses of self-deprecating irony ever in popular music. There's another song on the album about day dreaming, about which more later. And I will get back to the text we are ostensibly discussing soon, honest.
