You and I make a lovely shape
Two circles cubed draw a number 8
It's a perfect day to dress the kids in snowsuits
While we bake bread through the monsoon
Cause I'm in love with you
And all that we've been through
We're finally coming to
Two by two by two

This is the meaning of the number 8
The meaning of the number 8
The meaning of the number 8
8, 8, 8, 8...

Shape the pain into something great
Disintegrate and reintegrate
Let's go live like Sunday morning cartoons
Grow Christmas trees from tombs
Cause I'm in love with you
And all that we've been through
We're finally coming to
Two by two by two

This is the meaning of the number 8
The meaning of the number 8
The meaning of the number 8
8, 8, 8, 8...

    General CommentIt doesn't matter what has happened in the past. We can make the best of anything. Start things from other's ends. We are just in love, and at this moment that is all that matters.

    General Comment"Grow Christmas trees from tombs" is a beautiful line. It's kind of an "epitome of Cloud Cult" line. This song just came up on shuffle and I never realized it's greatness.

    General CommentThis album came six years after Craig Minowa's son died suddenly at the age of two. Listen to the album with that in mind and the "meaning of the number 8" will blow your mind, even more than before. This song is about how he has come to terms with the the past eight years, the life and the death, thinking of how his son would be turning eight if he were still alive. Much of the album does the same. It's incredible how much strength it would take to turn an event like that in to music like this, absolutely amazingly intelligent and beautiful
