Just let me fall into your movements
Movements of subtle serenity
I need to recycle all the feelings I've had in the past
Paint me a picture
A unique image of your inner kept feelings
Kylie, say the words

With silent ears and silent hands
I've seen the boat and it seems to be sinking
I've seen the boat and it's stuck on dry land

Saw you last night, said I saw you last night
You were walking with the angels
Tried to remember what it means to freeze it up

Now it seems to me that missing photos equal missing memories
Say the words with silent ears and silent hands
I've seen the boat and it seems to be sinking
I've seen the boat and it's stuck on dry land

Just a key to the concept I'm feeling
Give me your heart, won't you give me your heart
And I'll give you my hands
Come on kylie
How you get what you deserve

    General CommentIt's about their Highschool Student Body President, Kylie, who apparently none of them liked.

    General CommentIt's definitely about a girl it seems.

    The last line is "Now you get what you deserve" not "How".

    MemoryNot an interpretation, but an experience others might appreciate to read (I myself like reading these sorts of things). Note: I always heard the line "you were walking with the angles" as "you were walking with the haters".

    The same girl that introduced me to this band back in 2005/6 was the one who ended up breaking my heart 2 years later. I was absolutely enamored with this person and the blow was devastating. When that all fell apart I didn't have much to lean on and I developed some substance abuse problems. The first stanza of this song made me feel connected to it because I remembered feeling like I liked these drugs and drinking too much when I was a teenager. I also felt like since we had broken up I just kept recycling thoughts over and over in my head and it was making me feel rotten.

    Like the words in the song "with silent ears and silent hands" she didn't have much to say about the whole ordeal and seemed to move on immediately. She took a semester off school and I had a new found fear of women and had been secluded to my guy friends and substances. 6 months after we broke up -when she was supposed to be away- I was at this party weekend on the beach that everyone in our school goes to when I had a big moment. I was completely mashed on a bunch of things and was walking down the beach late at night headed to a party. I had hooked up with the friend who I was walking with earlier that night, the first person I'd hooked up with in half a year. We were walking down the beach and I through my hazy vision I saw my ex, on the beach, "walking with the haters". The hater was one of those record shop sorta guys who are super insecure and because of that insecurity liked to make fun of everyone I saw them walking and it was clear that they saw me before I saw them and when I noticed what was going on I burst out laughing, really I was laughing like a crazy person. I couldn't control it even when my friend tried to make me stop. All these different things had coalesced and there she was walking by after so much had changed and so much hadn't and .....you get the idea.

    Anyways, that line "saw you walking with the haters" literally happened and it was at such a dark and memorable point in my life. A point in my life where I learned a hell of a lot about myself and about the world. Just wanted to share on the off chance someone comes by and reads this and gets a little comfort out it if they are in a bad situation.

    Be safe out there.
