Learning there is nothing to gain from advice
Hey doubt, come on around any time
Anyhow mistakes are what lead you through life
Down and out's only if you think up and in's right
I've gone along with the sins that are versions of you
But guidelines were all I had time to get through
It's like reading of love that's gone wrong
If time was laid out like that
Everything would occur at once
And all the laws were laid down twice
And the clouds were doubled in the sky
And being tall meant lacking height
And being wrong meant being right
You're perfect
You fit snuggly right in the lie
One host is going to teach how to die
Lay down
The Darkness tonight is so bright
There's one for each time cars collide
I hear that that telling moments divide
And the only important moments
are the in between times
And being confused is an exercise
I'm missing your thoughts tonight
But we reach out for what's out of our sight

    General CommentWell it's probably the most interesting line of the song to me. I'm not really sure how much I buy into it being exactly true - but I think I understand what he means. And when you think in that way, I feel it is an awesome way to be.

    I take it as though he is saying every point in time is important and maybe that it is good to have a heightened sense of awareness that all the moments of your life are important. I don't know - now I'm iin an exercise myself (confused). I think John always provokes a sort of mental exercise - which of course could lead to doing physical things.

    General Commenti think this song means to look behind the upfront meanings of things, and looking deeper to find out what people really mean. sort of like you can't judge a book by its cover. and once you can do this(judge correctly) then you know that every moment is special, and you understand more about the meaning of life. but then again its only my opinion

    General CommentThis is my favorite John Fru song.
    I can't explain it in words, but in my head it all makes complete sense. That subconcious understanding I guess
