She is gone— Inside a hole like the sky, Where I once was. Now just everything I never told her And could not show her. Thoughts had no weight, Broken words sent her away. I’m kicking for floor, There’s only distance to fall. Reaching for the walls, There’s only distance to fall. She is gone— And I am going.

    General CommentThis is one of my favourite still life songs.
    It's so sad and mornful, though I don't like when people say SL just write depressing songs when actaully there's loads of positive songs just people never bother to really listen to the lyrics.
    But yeah, this song is a very dark song, I think it's about him thinking of all the things he could of done and said to her to show her how he really felt but now she's gone and it's too late and he's hanging himself.

    "I’m kicking for floor, There’s only distance to fall. Reaching for the walls, There’s only distance to fall. She is gone— And I am going."

    As he hangs himself he feet are kicking out trying to find the floor and there's only a small distance between him and the floor but it's enough. And he says how she's gone and now he's going, as in dying.
    Though I could be completely wrong and it's all metophorical.
