"Amnesia" as written by and Nicholls....
I cannot remember my own sanity
Gods love ain't forever
He'll set us free
Thought I had to tell you
We came from the breeze but I don't care forever
I don't need a thing
I cannot remember

    General Commentmaybe this pre-dates back to when the lead singer was going through that patch when he though he couldn't rememebr any of his songs. the lyrics are awesome, but they don't rally make sense without unless you know the rythem or the melody. oh well.

    General CommentCraig and Patrick in an interview:

    “ This one’s like poetry. It’s a really slow song and it’s a real head trip. We played this one a lot when were touring last year, and we kept building it up in soundchecks. We kept working on it together. I think that working on this song was really when we all started to play together really well. We did one demo of this before the album and by the time we went into the studio it sounded really good. It’s got a cool organic vibe to it in the way we play it, but then the vocal harmonies are a bit more space age.”
    “ Moog in chorus makes me ask ‘Spaceman, can you stay a while?’ Great
    words, great drum pattern, one of my favourites.”

    General CommentI don't exactly know what this is about. I guess it's like he can't remember anything because, I don't know, maybe it's like he's depressed or something. The part about God's love ain't forever, I think it's about that you seem to be protected by God but then you realize that he's set you free to figure things out on your own or something. I wouldn't exactly know anything about God, I don't believe in him. But anyways, I guess he's saying that he doesn't care and that it doesn't matter what he has, he doesn't really need anything. God this is bad. But i gave it my best shot.

    Rock on, Jazz

    General CommentThis song means that someone has entirely lost their memory, thus he enters a period of finding bliss in ignorance beacuse he doesnt remember a thing, neither religion nor teachings can stop him, his mind enters a time of pureness, like a baby i guess, but not so simple.

    General Commentohh this song sure puts me in a mood on rainly days.

    just sit at my window looking out at the world drinking tea and pondering life.

    i feel kinda weightless listening to this and like i cant think which is what the songs about.

    just cool.

    General Commenti think its about that point in your life when you become aware of yourself, thus 'god has set you free.' you are no longer under gods wing, you are open minded and aware, you must watch after yourself from now on. everything else in the song is just normal anxieties and frustrations from life. i cant remember my own sanity means just that. we came from the breeze, sortof like a dust in the wind kinda thing.

    General CommentI don't know how true this would be, but going off the assumption that Craig is sort of a lethargic/listless guy, I think it could be about not needing the past, and just living carefree/day to day. I dunno, mostly just trying to give another point of view to consider.
