wash out your eyes
you've seen the dirty place
I can't disguise
all of my longings

sometimes in the night
I feel your breathing
and I want to eat your light
for you to be inside me

where's my head I swear I saw it
rolling over there
I'm falling further than
I have ever been

horizon's on fire

I'll find a hiding place
I can't deny
all of your longings

the flame is getting low
and you're in my window
if you can find me now
you can have my body

where's your head
I swear I saw it
rolling over there
you're burning brighter
than I have ever seen

    General CommentAside from the overly-simple, lyric-less, descending chords section, this could be a Radiohead song. Do I mean that as a compliment? Hell yes.

    General CommentYet again, Akron Family explains my experiences to a tee.

    How do I relate to it? Well, it reminds me of someone who thought only lust existed between us, which had me to think that I was evil, but in the end I see she was projecting it onto me.

    General CommentHe's talking to God. The emptiness and longing he's feeling is not something that can be filled by another human being.

    General CommentI listen to these guys when I'm very high...

    I just melt into whatever I'm sitting in. Everything becomes more beautiful.

    I think the song is really sad though. Lumen means a cavity. It's about feeling empty and wanting to let everything go.
