The Lonesome Crowded West - Track 11 - [548 + 845] Days To 9/11

The Lonesome Crowded West was released on November 18, 1997.



The lyrics to the album's 11th song are shown below:

'Shit Luck'

This plane is definitely crashing
This boat is obviously sinking
This building's totally burning down

And my, (repeated)
And my heart is slowly drying up


The title: 'Shit Luck' is equal to 31 (full reduction), the 11th prime.




The combined gematria of each of the main passages sung in the lyrics ('This plane is definitely crashing; This boat is obviously sinking; This building's totally burning down; And my heart is slowly drying up') is equal to 548 in full reduction.


548 + 845 = 1393


From the release of The Lonesome Crowded West (November 18, 1997) to September 11, 2001 is 1393 days.




Calvin Johnson, the founder of 'K Records' is one of the producers listed on 'The Lonesome Crowded West'.



Kurt Cobain, a fan of the label, is known to have had the letter 'K' within a shield, tattooed on his arm.


K - the 11th letter

Johnson was born on the first day of the 11th month.

Kurt Cobain died on the date April 5th (4/5) and his body was discovered in his home on April 8 (4/8).

Recall the significance of the 11th track on the album, and the number 548 derived from the combined gematria of each of the main passages sung in the song.

548 + 845 = 1393

I bring up this connection because 'The Lonesome Crowded West' was released on the 4th anniversary of Nirvana's Unplugged in N.Y. performance.
