"My Foggy Notion" as written by and Melissa Auf Der Maur....
With her head in the clouds,
She keeps her distance and keeps resisting
They're so proud of what she's missing,
She is so delighted
Why must I find that falling down
Brings my hopes high, oh so high
Why must you cry when I fall down?
It helps me with the truth inside

The fear is tempting,
It consumes them
The loving darkness they claim she's missing
The job is hers to keep resisting
The claiming unknown they're so proud of
The job is hers to keep resisting
She is so delighted
Why must I find that falling down
Brings my hopes high, oh so high?
Why must you cry when I fall down?
The truth is mine; only mine
Don't you know it's my foggy notion?
So please don't cry when I fall down
It helps me with the truth inside

I hide, I hide
Joy to the foggy notions, in my room
Got to get away, they'll be here soon
Here's to the gloom of swine
That you roamed oh so smooth

Why must I find that falling down
Brings my hopes high, oh so high?
Why must you cry when I fall down?
The truth is mine, only mine

So take it easy baby!
Take it easy baby!
Baby, baby, baby
Ha, swine, ha, swine, ha, swine, ha

    My InterpretationI don't know if this is how she meant it, doesn't really matter either way, but I get a real dominant/submissive feel throughout the whole record. This is my favourite of Melissa's songs, and for me the whole 'falling down' bringing 'hopes high' and helping 'with the truth inside' is about being submissive in a relationship, about needing to be controlled. That's just me though, I'm probably reading my own desires into it! :p
