Oh dusk intended silences & corners pulling yellow
With valleys for their styluses & graphics for her fellow
Our Sunday morning starknesses sang false endearing senses
A frame of preening darknesses made mortar for their fences

It is not over, you just don’t know what you have done

When we’re nervous for all our sins in grainy wilted blessing
Deserved of whistling cardinal winds while gravity’s redressing
Oh smokepure strain of meeknesses & deathly-bound allying
Too many little sweetnesses, so much life in denying

I always wanted you to know I never wanted you to go
Your savior dies in empire glow but never tries to let it show

    General CommentNot exactly sure what this song means, but based on the frist few lines, it sounds like someone deeply depressed by a break-up. Makes sense by "It is not over, you just don’t know what you have done" and "I always wanted you to know I never wanted you to go" - To me, this sounds like a guy trying to divert his own mind by thinking of things that have always haunted him (death, religion, paths), trying not to think of her. Yet, he comes back to the same place in the end.
