she called me at seven
we talked for eleven
hours but said nothing at all

what have we got but love and affection
swear it to god this is christian selection
she saw it too flew to me on the red eye
what have we got but love

i think i'm in heaven
but shes just eleven
well i guess it's over now

    My InterpretationShe and he were in touch for a period of time and got to know each other by more than words. It seems that the christian reference is a metaphor for something less immaculate, lust or maybe a small town perhaps. When he says "she flew to me on the red eye" this refers to either an intense emotional or spiritual state when they reached out to each other and were connected by an intwining circumstance, either a traumatic episode that she relived with him or maybe he brought her into his troubled world and she left 'with red eyes". He sais he thinks he's in heaven and refers to her as of young age. So he realises he cannot accept her age, innocence, whatever provokes him to call her eleven and "i guess it's over now" depicts a sense of grief and struggle with how the two related last time.

    I hope the melody is more inventive than the lyrics. Don't get me wrong, this band has a raw sound and have put together a decent film clip. I would love to hear one of their albums.
