Once
This garden grew just light.
Just like an ivy, blinding eyes to the walls that hide behind, ascending high.

We looked away and everything was waves.
We worked our eyes and they snapped back into place,
but they never changed.
We looked away and everything was waves.
We worked our eyes and they snapped back into place,
but they never changed.

Once
This farm grew only faith.
Like an I.V. blindly placed
It demonstrates the safest way to stay awake.

We looked away and everything was waves.
We worked our eyes and they snapped back into place,
but they never changed.
We looked away and everything was waves.
We worked our eyes and they snapped back into place,
but they never change

And I want you
I want you to see
That I'll be there when you're trembling;
that I'll be there with you relapsing
into madness, into madness.

And I want you
I want you to see
That I'll be there when you're trembling;
and I'll hold you up when you're collapsing into sadness.
I can stand it.

We looked away and everything was waves.
We worked our eyes and they snapped back into place,
but they never changed.
We looked away and everything was waves.
We worked our eyes and they snapped back into place,
but they never changed.

    General Commenti only know a few people that listen to this cd, which is kind of funny cause (in my opinion) it's their best. i remember hearing in an interview that this song is about the heisenberg principle, which is way over my head, but i think it's also about knowing what makes your loved ones sad and being there for them, even if you don't fully understand it (as i don't fully understand the heisenberg principle.)

    General Commenti use to think the lyrics for the last verse were

    "and i'll hold you up when you're collapsing,
    it's just sadness, i can stand it"

    Which I quite liked, because i interpreted it as him having experienced so much sadness before that it's not really a big deal anymore.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song of the album for sure. I think it can be interpreted differently by people but i agree with masoupistoocold that it seems theres been so much sadness that it's expected now. I also think that it can be about a relationship in the lines

    We looked away and everything was waves.
    We worked our eyes and they snapped back into place,
    but they never changed.

    To me it's like even though this person has changed and gone through so much the feelings will always be there and that "i can stand it" to me shows that regardless how hard it is/gets that will never change.
