If you've got nothing for me then you're making it easy, to go on and care so very little.
Like some failed retreat to the summer house in the dead of night when you came to see the colours of fall.

For I've been traveling but it's been no great escape, and wandering the gardens of the estate is doing nothing for me.
No, no no. No, no no.

Moved to up and leave with whatever wind's setting the trees, to rock and do a little dance against the house.
And if all this were just some mystery to solve, know dressing up like one of the Hardys won't work at all.

For I've been traveling but it's been no great escape, and wandering the gardens of the estate is doing nothing for me.
No, no no. No, no no.

    General CommentThis is a great song. A very moody feeling with the music and the lyrics. It sounds like a tale of a person feeling emptiness. Like someone who's got nothing for him and a retreat that doesn't turn out how you want, there is disappointment, but the character of the song does not feel so disappointed. He seems less than surprised. In the second verse he has let go, sailing on the winds of life, accepting that answers aren't worth the questioning. There is a peacefulness in letting go of disappointment, of the search for answers. This is the great escape. Traveling and wandering through gardens can't bring you this type of peace. My interpretation, of course, I could be off base.
