Proven in theory your heart can be lost by the brain.
Staring hard the devil is just out of frame.
Mother where are you?
I love you I'm right here.
Twisting and turning and loving and braiding your hair.
It was a good day she died.

It was a good day to die and run from the night.
It was a good day to die, she died.

Help me I'm wasted my heart has been lost in the rain.
Covered in ashes and dust my tears pump through your veins.
Father where are you?
I thought you were my friend.
Well I'll be your mother, your Mary, your Jesus and Zen.
It was a good day she died.

It was a good day to die and run from the night.
It was a good day to die, she died.

With her head this close to the floor, I feel so alive.
She died.

It was a good day to die and run from the night.
It was a good day to die, she died.

Just let me die old. She let me die old, she died.
Just let me die old.
Just let me die old, she died.

    General CommentThis is such a great opener to one of the greatest albums of all-time. I think Atomsplitter is right about it being a boy's mother dying, more specifically thru the eyes of the child the day of the death. (therefore Day of Daze) The first lines appears to be before the mother's death...with the devil being "just out of frame". After her death, most likely abruptly thru some kind of accident, the child can't believe she is really gone. "Mother, where are you..." and recounts happy memories of her "Twisting and turning and loving and braiding your hair". The final line of the verse is one of my favorites "It was a good day....she died!" describes how quickly life can change. The next verse is the child grieving and questioning how God has taken away his mother "Father where are you? I thought you were my friend". I am still trying to breakdown the next line...any thoughts? My only guess there is from an actual father's perspective where he claims he will be everything to the child, and take on the role of the mother. The end of the song seems to be about her death making him appreciate the true value of life "With her head this close to the floor, I feel so alive...Just let me die old". Anyways, thats my interpretation of the song.
