"Emblems" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
Stayed up for ages
But the clock counts in hours
Asleep we watch standing
Let's give up on cowards
Speaking in fables
Burns out holes where we stand

Doors lean towards leaving
You know somebody's looking
Two tend to wake up
Let's see disparate footing
Beams help the light fall
Superstition is strong
Mostly suspicious
Looking sideways straight on

Like ideas or emblems we've been had
The way that ghosts watch themselves go down

I'm my own suspicion
Of what it might mean
To be caught in a story
You were told in a dream
If we took the pictures
Our smiles staining the floor

Like ideas or emblems we've been had
The way that ghosts watch themselves go down

    General Commentthe whole meaning of this song is wrapped up in the line "the way that ghosts watch themselves go down." or, in other words, the way that people who have made dire mistakes always focus solely on the poor decision or whatever it was that brought them down, like a ghost watching its own death.

    General Commentthat makes sense... but i can't really figure out what they mean by "like ideas or emblems we've been had" in a way that it makes sense to compare it to "the way that ghosts watch themselves go down" ...thoughts?
