I fancy you
But I've been destitute
And all I know dissolved
I could never reundo you
I will always say it's so
I will always speak the truth
Descend into a noose
I could never reundo you

I want to bury you
I want to bury you

Vultures circle around
Feathers float, wings flap, beaks pound
And though my heart's exposed
I could never reundo you
I will always bleed the truth
I will always speak
And know I was sent to cut you loose
I will never reundo you

I want to bury you
I want to bury you

Dismantle me
Dismantle me
Dismantle me

It's warm and humid on Swanston Street
And the air is filled with electricity
And the sky is deeper than a dream
And the sky is deeper than a dream

Dismantle me
Dismantle me
Dismantle me
And the sky is deeper than a dream
And the sky is deeper than a dream

    General Commentthis is pretty random, and i got the idea off of hey-now saying "the sky is the limit"
    but people always say there's no limit to your dreams (they're endless, whatever), and playing off "the sky is the limit" maybe she's saying that her dream (what was once her relationship with tim) has been crushed and the sky seems so much deeper than her dreams, saying her dreams have crashed and burned. just a thought.
    or something along those lines, like i know what i mean i just cant seem to put it into words to explain it :) (maybe why brody used metaphors ;] )
    this is one of my faves by the distillers though

    My Interpretation"sky is deeper than the dream"

    sky is the limit is kinda right I feel but its more than that

    I think she is saying that the dream of the relationship for her was not as deep as it should be. That she wasn't reaching as high as she should of.

    it would be like having a dream just to be mediocre... there is so much more possibility.

    General CommentIt's a little hard to decipher any lyrics that brody dalle writes mainly because a lot of them are metaphors.

    Good song.
