"Into the Blinding Light" as written by and Geoffrey/keeley Rickly....
We stare into the blinding light
To see what's between us
It's red and it's white
Like lies, like lipstick on last look goodbyes
The substance assimilating to watch the bodies burst
Into a string of lights when there's nothing left the party crashes
And the rings come out from all the jacket pockets into the blinding light

The fire is dying out.
And there's nothing left to burn except for ourselves
The cinema speaks as you take off all your clothes and burst in dissimulation
Just let your body burst into a streak of light.
When there's nothing left, the wedding crashes and the rings fall off, rol out of the bedroom window and into the blinding light

Please someone help me, take away my loneliness
Please someone fill me, take away my emptiness
Please someone touch me, take away my longing
And please someone show me the light

And the rings fall out like a silver snowfall into the blinding light

Just make your body burst into single line when there's nothing left the heart rate crashes and the rings fall out as we turn each other into the blinding light

White night coming down,
Silent arnies all around.
Deep sleep covering,
Entering in clean white sheets.

    General CommentAwesome live song. I've seen them play it live twice...so much energy...it's one of those songs that Geoff just REALLY pours his heart out into, more than any other.


    So good.

    General CommentWhat do you think this song is about?

    Personally, I think this is one of their most difficult lyrics to decipher. But after re-reading the lyrics several times, I've come up with an explanation:

    Maybe this song is about adultery and temptation. About marital loyalty
    (the rings come out of all the jacket pockets)
    (the wedding crashes and the rings fall off, roll out the bedroom window)

    "Like lies, like lipstick on last-look good-byes" adulterous affairs are often discovered by lipstick on collars and of course there's always a lot of lying and hiding involved

    "Just make your body burst into single line when there's nothing left the heart rate crashes and the rings fall out as we turn each other into the blinding light"

    Again wedding rings fall out and when your marriage is ruined, there's nothing left but adrenaline rushes with another lover.

    White night coming down
    Silent armies all around
    Deep sleep covering
    Enemies in clean white sheets" >

    I see a couple sleeping after sex, the night is still white from the blinding light they have engaged in (blinding light as a metaphore for the bliss and oblivion which unfaithful sex gives them) and the silent armies = all the people who would disapprove.

    "(the sky went off-white, it snowed for fourteen years the sunlight splintered into all our darkest fears)"

    after discovery by the husband/wife, the relationship turns cold for a long time and the blinding light that the adulterous spouse has created, makes all fears come true.

    maybe it's too far-fetched, but in my opinion it makes sense:)
