Deep
At the end of space,
Further than the Sun
Is a crowd of chairs.
Way out
On a crystal sea,
protecting you and me,
is a battleship.
I...

I had my eyebrow
Into a question.
Who is this captain,
And where do his friends live?

We were walking in the snow
Down the street from your front door,
I jumped a neighbor's fence at dawn,
Danced my way across your lawn,
Used a diamond on the glass,
Slithered slowly through the dark,
Made my way up o'er your stairs,
Crystals flying everywhere.

I...
I...

We will
Drive you in the boot
Through the crooked past
To your resting place.
We will leave you in the woods,
Tell your friends you slipped,
Down the Lumen Tree.

If you're
Seen there,
Blooming
Inside

Each time I
Hope that
Talking
Improves

I will
remember
You...
You...(In June?)

Follow lonely crowds as clouds will come.
Follow lonely crowds as clouds...
Follow lonely crowds as clouds will come.
Follow lonely crowds as clouds will come.

    General Comment'It Fit When I Was A Kid'
    as in, a personality and attitude to life that worked for him when he was younger
    but now he's outgrown it and feels lost, stuck "following lonely crowds"

    General CommentIs it just me, or are Liars like 50% Animal Collective and 50% Mezzanine era Massive Attack in this song? They are VERY odd.

    General Commentthat's a good analysis. I am surprised by the poetry of it. I also thought he was talking about the Bristol sea. But that would be stupid. (If a little poignant to the Massive Attack comment).

    General Commentwhat's a lumen tree you ask? The Lumen Tree is an oil lamp shadow projector that will project the image from an acid-etched, stainless steel tree onto a wall when placed on a shelf or mantelpiece. Created by inventor and artist Adam Frank - mocoloco.com/archives/…

    General Commenti think it's 'i aim my eyebrow in to a question.'

    at least that's what it says in illegible writing in the album booklet.

    General CommentMan it's hard to interpret, but I love this song, it's so haunting, especially the part that goes:

    "We were walking in the snow
    Down the street from your front door,
    I jumped a neighbor's fence at dawn,
    Danced my way across your lawn,
    Used a diamond on the glass,
    Slithered slowly through the dark,
    Made my way up o'er your stairs,
    Crystals flying everywhere."

    General CommentI love this song,
    but i think the ending sounds more like
    "Follow lonely crowds (those) clouds will come."
    just sayin'!:)
