Lay down your bricks and rest your tired arms
Wait till the morning brings another start
When the pain is gone
Then your work is done

Hurt takes you away sometimes
It hurts watching the change in your eyes
New hunts in the morning light
Sleep takes you away at night

Lay down your head and rest your tired heart
Wait till the morning brings another start
When the pain is gone
Then your work is done

When the pain is gone
Then your work is done at last

    General CommentIt took me a while to "discover" this song on their album, but know I just can't get enough of it. The start with minutes of synth with new vocals is awesome..

    The first verse sounds like, the narrator is telling someeone to stop trying to built, fix or improve something. Maybe a relationship. The fixing might not ever be succesfull, so he should give it up, and wait for a new chance to built a realionship. Perhaps with someone else? This new start might not come until the pain from the past realitionshipis gone. So his working on the relationship isn't over till he's over it.
    Next verse is about the hurt that you have to take in. During a recovery from a relationship. But in the morning light (when the morning have come, from the first verse) its time to maybe go looking for a new relationship, that is "go hunt"
    The rest is pretty much repeating the same message.

    I think the message is, that a relationship isn't over until your over it and it doesn't hurt you any longer. And thats when your ready to start a new relationship.

    General CommentI too, took a while to let this track sink in, but now it's my favorite from the album. Spleen United uses lyrics like a wire frame, and the music builds the meaning. Their songs are so subjective...I think the meanings change depending your circumstances...which in a way makes the songs more personal.

    To me, Heat is about caring for someone with a terminal illness. Watching them struggle to stay alive, and then find peace in death.
