I could sink to the bottom of you
with a stone on a chain
without breathing in
I could tell you and tell you again
that there is only one
though many have been

lie down
fall in
pass out
while I'm wide awake
with the lights out
you're in safe hands
of that one man
who can fix his petite machine

you're not lonely in seconds of doubt
and the doubt is in me
next to certainty
back and forth as it always has been
and ever will be
as long as we're not in between

lie down
fall in
pass out
while I'm wide awake
with the lights out
you're in safe hands
of that one man
who can fix his petite machine

    General CommentI'm obsessed with this song.
    More people NEED to know about this band.
    Oh, and the song is about a guy who is madly in love with a girl and promises to take care of her forever, keeping her safe and her fragile ego in tack.

    My InterpretationI definitely agree that this song is about a man who is madly in love with someone. I don't necessarily think the "petite machine" lyric refers to the other person: I think it refers to him. The kick drum rhythm in this song is strongly reminiscent of a heartbeat, and the heart can itself be thought of as a "machine" of sorts. He is saying that he is so devoted to this person that they shouldn't worry about hurting him, and that he will always be there for them to come home to because he is willing to overlook any emotional hardship they cause him.

    General CommentI agree on that he is seriously on love with this girl, and that the beat of the song could symbalize a heartbeat, but i am not so sure about the idea of him not caring about her hurting him. I belive that this "petite machine" is this girl he is reffering to, and that he is there for her, to take care that this machine will keep on going, and that there is nobody else but him who can fix her; that he is the only one that truly knows her.

    Kashmir is truly amazing with all their cryptized messages in their song.
