"Lock and Key" as written by and Matthew Thompson Samuel Fineberg....
We saw the sun was going down
through the iron bar spiderwebs
they turned the key
but we were already dead
we were already stone dead

We are the wind tonight
blowing up blowing down blowing left and right
shake shake 'cause we put that chill in your bones tonight
take that lock and key and shove it

Caught every lightning bug out in the yard
not a lone breath leaks the lips
as they come to grips with this.

We left them there and drifted west
when you and I coalesced

Later on, one swore he saw us open the jar
all the chemicals luminesce in their chests
and shine right through
kinda like me and you
kinda like me and you do

    General Commentits about sex. awesome song by the way, if they hired a better producer/mixer, i think it could've been a hit.

    Song Meaningah, dude, it totally is about sex, huh?
    ahahhahahaha, i read that, thinking-
    "fuckin perve, it can't be-"
    (then read the bits about blowing up, blowing down, &taking a lock&key&shoving it.)

    well, i think that's a bit too literal.
    it's sort of beautiful, though.

    "we left them there and drifted west
    while you and i coalesced."

    "Later on, one swore he saw us open the jar
    all the chemicals luminesce in their chests
    and shine right through
    kinda like me and you
    kinda like me and you do."

    'one swore he saw us open the jar' kinda sounds like the singer/writer getting caught in some affair or other with a significant other.

    i don't know; i'm surprised few people commented on this.
