Drive ~
Up and down thru water
Live where you're poor
Between snores

Sighing babies go to work ~
Crying days rooted lurk
To the back of the room, play him a tune
Down low if the sun could melt like snow

I would run to you
And flow into a cloud
Melt running away into you ~

    General Commenthow we all have diffrent views.
    must be what we think of john as these days
    i think its about being horrible to young people (like myself. mabey thats why i think this) and making them do things they dont like and they dont have the confidence to tell anyone so they might try to run away OR run out of this world by running into a new one.
    i think that this is one of the best songs he has ever made. it makes me think of why i should actually stay here at all.

    Maybe it's about a repeated dream?

    General CommentI thought this song was pretty straight-forward. I think it's about a grown up society with its members or citizens who are too young for its rules and boundaries, and are trapped in a cycle of depression. John is the only one who is conscious of it in the song and returns to nature (away from the man) at the end.
