So dive and lumen
never seen before…
To pray my days and blue your eyes…
I run to wipe the blue away.
I don’t want to see you techni-nothing-colored…
Take my eyes and make me blind,
colored days not in you.
Not in lumen faces
That are few in all the…

I don’t want to see you techni-nothing-colored

I and #8217 am running away
I know…
And it does….

Unsleeping, keep on running
and please hold the line…
Numb, knives, and all.
exposed ribs is intimate,
You say it hurts,
I know.
And it does….

    General CommentI think, given the lyrics and the absolutely stunning feature of a female voice in a Subtle song, that this is more or less a song about rape- which causes the singer to wish herself blind and leads her to an act of reprisal.
    Lumen is the name of the tube from the eye to the brain; the blue on the eyes are obviously tears; not wanting to seeing them techni nothing coloured; et al.
    The end of the song alludes to the recompense to the rape- knives and numbness and the ironic return of the phrase used in the mourning of the raped...

    Just my thoughts.
