"Your Rocky Spine" as written by and Anthony Dekker....
I was lost in the lakes
And the shapes that your body makes
That your body makes
That your body makes, that your body makes

And the mountains said I will find you here
They whispered the snow and the leaves in my ear
I traced my finger along your trails
And your body was the map, I was lost in it

Falling over your rocky spine
The glaciers made you and now you're mine
Falling over your rocky spine
The glaciers made you and now you're mine

I was moving across your frozen veneer
The sky was dark but you were clear
Could you feel my footsteps?
And would you shatter, would you shatter? Would you?

With your soft fingers between my claws
Like purity against resolve
I could tell then there we were formed from the clay
And came from the rocks for the earth to display

They told me to be careful up there
Where the wind rose up there, in this rage through your hair
They told me to be careful up there
Where the wind rages through your hair

    General CommentIt seems to be one big metaphor for exploring your lover's body like new land. So ridiculously beautiful.

    General CommentOr it's the other way around, and it's a metaphor for how exploring new land is like exploring a lover's body. Either way, it's great.

    Lyric Correctionyou forgot some lyrics! before the last lines, he sings "they told me to be careful up there, where the wind blows a venomous rage through your hair"

    Song MeaningIt is about two things at the same time. Obviously it is about making love to a women or at least could be interpreted that way.

    The other meaning is about ice climbing a frozen waterfall sprung from a spring in the rock landscape at night or in darkly cloudy conditions. The beautiful ice its innocence, the claws of the ice ax ripping into the soft ice, being told to be careful by others in his ice climbing, the blowing wind out in the elements, up in the mountains in are area carved by glaciers, with rock-the body- all around, in an area with lakes.

    Lyric CorrectionI was lost in the lakes
    and the shapes that your body makes
    that your body makes
    that your body makes
    that your body makes

    And the mountains said I could find you here
    they whisper the snow and the leaves in my ear
    I traced my finger along your trails
    your body was the map, I was lost in there

    Floating over your rocky spine
    The glaciers made you and now you're mine
    Floating over your rocky spine
    The glaciers made you and now you're mine

    I was moving across your frozen veneer
    The sky was dark, but you were clear
    Could you feel my footsteps?
    And would you shatter, would you shatter? Would you?

    And with your soft fingers between my claws
    like purity against resolve
    I could tell, then and there, we were formed from the clay
    and came from the rocks for the earth to display

    They told me to be careful up there
    where the wind blows a venomous rage through your hair
    They told me to be careful up there
    where the wind rages through your hair

    General CommentI agree with the poster that said they think that this song is meant to sound like exploring a lover's body, when it's just about really liking going hiking. A very sexy nature song.
