He sits among the rest, buried in his seat.
The clatter of the crowd is drowning out his speech.
He turns to look at us, a mirror burned in deep.
He wonders who you are, you wonder what he means.
We are the matched and numbered ones.
We have been placed in all their codes.
You may be blessed by your own,
You may be blessed by your own ghost.
She makes the driver blush with pains of tongues and knees.
She opens up the car leaving air to breathe.
Tthe moments all messed up with lanes that bleed in sheets
That cover up our tracks and lead us to her keep.
We are the matched and numbered ones who live in constant disrepair.
You may be blessed by your own,
You may be blessed by your own ghost.
Here i'm stressing over fallen angels with cause to cover.
We are the matched and numbered ones who live in constant disrepair.
You may be blessed by your own,
You may be blessed by your own ghost.

    General CommentNice, there are Elliott fans out there. I don't know what it is about this song. It just gets me everytime. Like those half japanese girls. I dont' think i could even tell you what the words mean to me, it just has an almost surreal sound to the whole song. I want it to be the background music for my life, calming me like an ever present hand on my shoulder. Does this song effect anyone like that? or am i just really weird?

    General CommentI hear ya. Exactly what the song's about, honestly, i'm not positive. But there's something about listening to this song that make you feel completely enveloped in it. Kinda like a warm and fuzzy sweater, only... okay, i guess the sweater analogy was bad, but who cares. Song still rocks

    General CommentOi. How I love Elliott. This song is so beautiful. It's my favorite off of False Cathedrals. This song rocks my socks so much and I can't ever say that enough.

    General CommentElliott is just...amazing. So different from everything else. It's like they said "alright, let's see what music is selling and go as far away from that as possible." Their music can't be put into a genre like others can, they are just so unique. This song proves how brutally(sp?) honest lyrics like "We are the matched and numbered ones who live in constant disrepair" and trun it into such a beautiful song. If you are relaxing or just hosting a calm party and looking for music, look to farther than Elliott.

    General CommentI love the dynamics that Elliott has. Most of their songs start off really kind of soft, and seem to stay mostly the same until you get two thirds of the way through the song, and realize it's ten times louder than it was at the beginning. But you never noticed the volume increasing at all, which is really a cool experience.

    General CommentI agree with nevermind. Elliott is amazing. This song really stands out. There's something so guilty and so soft about Elliott. It's really unique, unlike anything. You cant compare it to another genre, because it's its own. It's the music.
    I feel really strange when I listen to Elliott, almost as if somethings taken over, calmed me but made me aware. If that makes sense...
