"Letters to the Far Reaches" as written by and Daniel John/von Bohlen Didier....
Flickering on, sad to see the season
Come and gone away
My black-eyed friends couldn't stay
I'm afraid

Now I'm left with a mess
I'm way too overdressed for casual guests in time
They've all always got to be leaving
All the long long times

Sometimes we fight
And I don't treat my stomach right
Every night
It hurts
and I don't know what's worse
the eyes or words.

Flickering on, sad to see the season
Come and gone away
My black-eyed friends couldn't stay
My black-eyed friends couldn't stay
My black-eyed friends couldn't stay

    General Commenti think the black-eyed friends are snowmen, and since the season is changing, they are melting and leaving him. and he's saying how nothing every stays the same.

    General CommentThat's brilliant. I have racked my brain thinking "Who the hell are his "black-eyed friends"? That's a great observation and sheds a little more light on this idea of things change.
