"Dragonfly" as written by and Martin James F. Craft....
I can see it all tonight underneath a perfect sky
Where the universe revolves around the pupil of an eye
And infinities stretch out from infinities within
And I'm a part of everything, I'm a part of everything

Am I falling asleep? Is it all just a dream?
Well, the cars are like water and the road is like a stream
Rolling down through the city, flowing out into the sea
Going nowhere like me, going nowhere like me

When the morning starts to glow out in the corners of the sky
All the people come and go, and the time just passes by
Then I'm only gonna see it from the corner of my eye
When the planet spins, it sings like the wings of a dragonfly

I can see it all tonight
I can see it all tonight
I can see it all tonight
I can see it all tonight

    General CommentJust taking the time to take it all in as his soul is free and flying. The Earth "sings" and "spins" in his peripheral vision, it vibrates and blurs like the wings of a dragonfly because of his speed.

    The imagery recalls highspeed filming/photography turnning car lights at night into long filaments.

    General Commentthis song is definately the best song featured in any SKINS episode. To me the song seems really eerie and fits in with the scene. i think this song almost sounds like someone who is about to die - cancer is singing it noticing how beautiful the world can be. anyway thats just my opinion

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about fleeting moments of "truth." We all have moments when we feel connected, when we feel like we can see the meaning behind everything. Maybe an intense mindfulness.

    These moments come, then they go and suddenly they're just a memory.

    "I can see it all tonight," but perhaps not tomorrow morning, as the sun rises and the night fades away. Everything is as it was, until the truth reveals itself again.
