"Blue Sunshine" as written by and Justin Furstenfeld....
I see your heart beat through the bedsheets
I feel your pulse against the floor
I sleep the sadness that no one else sleeps
Feel me cunningly adore.

As the tic tock clock lies Goldilocks
What a sick enchanted view
Of the white blot sin that we all began
Not the girl that I once knew.

Blue Sunshine
I've got no vacancies
At the top of the clock was Jesus spying on me
I spoke of friends
Point me which direction
I tried a bribe of when I die but swore he never
Mentioned.

I kicked and screamed,
"Its simple, you must sing
The day I take you, you'll be sleeping
You won't feel a thing."

    General CommentSince I can't put it better myself and to give credit where credit is due, I got this from the Blue October forum (blueoctoberfan.com/openBook/…),

    They started playing this song again at the end of the tour in 2004 and Justin would explain a little about the song before they would play it.

    The story behind the song takes place one night while Justin and Ryan were in high school. They were young, like 14 years old. They were hanging out with a couple of girls, and got ahold of some acid. They spent the night at one of the girls' homes and tripped on acid. The girl's parents were home and made Justin and Ryan sleep in the living room downstairs while the girls slept upstairs.

    The beginning of the song (I see your heart beat through the bedsheet, I feel your pulse against the floor. I sleep the sadness that no one else sleeps, can you feel me cunningly adore?) expresses Justin's longing for the girl as they slept on different floors in the same house.

    Blue Sunshine is actually a direct reference to the blotter. It's also a movie from the 70's where accoriding to wiki "a group of college kids have taken a new form of LSD called "Blue Sunshine," which causes its users to lose their hair and become insane and homicidal."

    General Commenti think this is one of their better songs. the violin is played beautifully. but i dont fully know what its about. i think it might be about him being really depressed and wanting to know when he'll die but wants it to be a painless death.

    "I tried a bribe of when I died
    But swore he mentioned
    I kicked and screamed
    It's simple, you must sing
    The day I take you, you'll be sleeping
    You won't feel a thing"

    General CommentFrom Justin's book, Crazing Making, he rights this of Blue Sunshine:

    "First time I dropped a tab of acid. I watched my girlfriend sleep the whole night."

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs. I'm a bit sad that it's about an acid trip, but that does make more sense of the lyrics. It was truly amazing live.

    Song Meaning*DISCLAIMER* I have just obtained a copy of Justin Furstenfeld's book Crazy Making. It's not very detailed, but it contains all the lyrics to all current (The Answers - Approaching Normal) Blue October songs, and his inspiration behind them. As I said, it's not very detailed, but it's his words on every Blue October song that is in the book. I know everyone interprets a song differently from everyone else, but having the original intent behind the song will be helpful to people who don't fully understand a song. Also, any grammatical errors are not made by me, I'm putting down Justin's words exactly how he writes them. So yea... enjoy :)
