"Reflections Of A Sound" as written by and Daniel Johns....
In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound

I know it's been far too long
Stormy weather
My arrested hope won't take forever
Like a memory, I need it never

We walk, wrapped in thought
Some are vacant, some have grown too short
It's the only thing I've ever had that keeps me lonely

[Chorus]
In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound
When nobody is around
In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound
When nobody is around

Condemned from the waste of time
Feel so empty when I feel so fine
Starting over, we can change this life
Shout out sober

I've been waiting for far too long
Let's stick together
'Cause you're keeping me warm
And it's a lonely setting sun

[Chorus]

I wait so long
Now my head is full of pressure
I need time to cure my mind
It's like a loop that lasts forever

I've been waiting for far too long
Let's stick together
'Cause you're keeping me warm
And it's a lonely setting sun

[Chorus]

In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound
For nobody
In the sun we are found to be
Reflections of a sound
For nobody

    General CommentWe walk, wrapped in thought
    Some are vacant some have grown too far
    It’s the only thing that keeps me lonely

    I think it is

    we walk, wrapped in thought
    some are vacant some have grown too short
    Its the only thing that I ve ever had
    that keeps me lonely

    ..AND
    "Condemned from the waste of time"

    could also be

    "Come down from the waste of time"

    it continues to...
    Feel so empty when I feel so fine
    Starting over we can change this life
    "Shout out sober"

    sounds like "shadow sober" or "shout it sober"

    I wait so long
    Now my head is full of pressure
    Need time to cure my mind
    (What the missing line here it sounds like
    "Its like a loop that last for ever")
    Lasts forever

    General Commentbottom 3? are you kidding?
    i think this song is about hope, thru good and bad, and just being yourself without guilt.
    Silverchair is the best!

    General CommentThis has Pure and Easy written all over it. Every time he sings "In the sun we are found to be Reflections of a sound", I just feel like adding "and words when you played your guitar".

    General Commenti can't say i love this song.

    i don't hate it, but i certainly don't love it.
    it seems a little to happy-go-lucky for my liking.
    theres nothing wrong with happy songs, but this one reminds me of sunshine and rainbows.

    General CommentThis song is about how bats use reflections of sound off solid objects to navigate around the caves

    General Commentok so aside on whether you like the song or not....what do you think this song means?

    General Commenthmmm i dunno but the title always makes me think that their sound as a band changing. And some lyrics seem to reflect that
    "i know its been far too long lets stick together"
    "i wait so long that my head is now full of pressure" (needs to write songs again now that the band is back together)

    Its probably wayyy off and not about that at all
    on the website i found interesting that its written "come down from the WAIST of time" (as opposed to waste and makes it a very visual lyric.)Wanted to check the cd sleeve but its not with me at the moment

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are wrong. I don't see how anyone could place this song in the bottom 3 of this album. This is one of their best songs. (Even though I prefer their rock music better. Even their alt rock/romantic songs like "Miss You Love" are what I prefer most.) But this song makes them sound like an Australian version of The Beatles. I love it, and it shows that they are diverse in their music.
    What lyric from this song I want to understand the most is "In the sun, we are found to be reflections of a sound, when nobody is around." It's very pretty, but I don't know what it means...any ideas?
