"See The Light" as written by and Mark Linkous....
Away with golden crows
I know their souls are old
The waves and the thunder's prose
Within her belly glows

where the sleeping old bears breathe
I can't see the light for the trees

I stayed in lake of fire
My bed was ancient pyre
The stars all fell into the sea
I can't see the light for the trees

For the trees
For the trees
For the trees
For the trees

    General CommentThis song rolls along so smoothly and beautifully. I get the idea that maybe it's about change and moving on to something new. There are a lot of refrences to age and things that dwell for a long time (bears, golden crows, stars) and it seems like he is trying to see a way out but is having trouble. Just an idea.

    General CommentI can't see the light for the trees

    Maybe it's like a critic for those who don't have any interest in the planet

    Away with golden crows
    I know their souls are old

    The people that is fake but could have a lot money, power or whatever of that, their souls are old because most of that kind of people are just totally empty, full of sadness and bad ambitions. Maybe they just feel like very important but they are not and just live the whole time in a superficial way.
