"Get Blown Away" as written by Damon Minchella, Simon Fowler, Oscar Lloyd Harrison and Stephen Cradock....
And when she blows the candle flame to smoke
She says a prayer for all of those who live in houses and in homes
And Monday she'll go down town standing naked in the road
You may know what I am
But who I am you don't know

She'll run across the mustard dust sand
Scream down the wind
And the sea is in a cold
Like when in holiday homes
And houses like sweet confectionery
And sandcastles and drinking wine
Hungry dinners perfectly timed

And mother and father glowing young
Happy to be each other together
When she blows the candle out
She goes to bed and lies and drags through her head
The day that went way of every day
But tomorrow she'll fly a plane
Over the fields where the houses aren't built yet

She smiled sweetly across the room
Through the lunch time smoke
And I loved her for a second
And discarded the queen and I know
How sweetness turns sour
And leaves they turn to brown
And then to earth and dust
And settle in this town
You get blown away...

(repeat 1st half)
She smiled sweetly across the lunch time smoke
And I loved her for a second and discarded the queen and I know
When men are being little boys again
And women cruel step mothers of old
And this is the invention
The adventure of my own
I get blown away...

    General CommentNo no no its about the circle of life. She is senile, going naked , you think she's a mad old women but she was a little girl and lives there in her senile mind now. Ocs are speaking about the concept of youth to old age , death, leaves turn to brown etc .
    She remembered at first in death then she is forgotten , blown away. It's a beautiful song.
    Ocs really have been in that dark place and you hear it in his voice, it's a cuse and a cut that never really heals
    I love ocs

    My InterpretationIn the song, 'she' is nostalgia. She's travelling over fields where houses aren't built yet etc and at the end he says 'this is the invention' meaning he knows that whatever love he feels for those old days and the beautiful nostaligia, deep down he knows it's an invention of his mind, his own adventure.

    General CommentI think it's about the holocaust, if you think about it, you'll see I'm right.
