We are spending all our time away from one another
We are coming to a tender age of miracles and robbers
We try to live a life respecting all the animals
Like wind behind the grass in sway
Asleep at certain times of day

Don't turn away looming moon
You'll have your revenge very soon
Don't turn away from what you love
Soon you'll be finding it's much too tough

I have thought of sharing all these different feelings,
From under covers
We try to live a life respecting all the animals

May we all turn into leaves that crack and break apart
And I'm anxious to relieve my mind from desperate thoughts
I hope you remember me always

    General CommentAnother great song by SAW! What i get from the last verse is that he's about to commit suicide, which is really sad and pretty dark. But, thats what i think he must mean by "relieving my mind from desperate thoughts". And why would he want people to remember him unless there was a reason to forget him (aka he's dead)?

    General CommentJUST KIDDING!

    I just read somewhere that this song is about a time when Charles was considering leaving the music industry (when he wuit/was kicked out of thebleedingalarm). Which makes a lot of sense.

    General CommentI believe the song deals with living and dying (a common theme in their music I've noticed) as well as commenting (and possibly lamenting) on how humans are just one part of a greater cycle and all we can really do is just live our life the best we can ("respecting the animals" as they are part of the same cycle) and do what we love (or be with those we love) until we can't anymore: "Don't turn away from what you love
    Soon you'll be finding it's much too tough" because no matter what we do in our lives, in the end: "May we all turn into leaves that crack and break apart." I don't think they necessarily look at this as a depressing thing, just a truth that should be realized to keep on the right path.
