"Veneno Para Las Hadas" as written by and Steven John Wilson....
When you're young you're sleeping
With the love you're feeling
Waking up to evening
To the pulse you're breathing

Nothing left, just ember
Only we remember
A bottle not for sharing
Poison for a fairy

    General CommentThis song is mis-titled. It should be "Veneno Para Las Hadas" (spanish for "To Poison a Fairy").
    I'm also pretty sure it's

    "Nothing left, just ember
    Only we remember
    A bottle not for sharing
    Poison for a fairy"

    Fantastic song, though.

    General CommentThis song is inspiredin the mexican movie "Veneno Para las Hadas", which is about two girls, one of them lies to the other one telling her she is really a very wicked witch in a disguise of a girl. She bullies her psichologically, and at the end she asks for help to make a poison for fairies, because, supposedly, witches hate fairies.

    SPOLIER AHEAD!! READ UNDER YOUR OWN RISK!

    Ath the end, the good girl starts a fire in the barn where the bully one is "preparing" the posion, and locjing her inside. Obviously, the bad girl dies.

    That's why the song comeslike this

    Nothing left, just embers. (the fire)
    Only we remember
    a bottle not for sharing
    Poison for the fairies

    To me it's all very clear. The lyrics are told by the surviving girl to someone when she has grown up and this events are just one part of her past.

    General CommentHow come there isn't any comments on this one
    It's a great Song. Insurgentes is an amazing Record and SW will always be the god.
    With appreciation to the Uploader I think There's a mistake in the last verse .
    "Nothing left just slumber
    only We remember
    A Bottle not for sharing the Poison with the Fairies"

    General CommentThe title, as hopperface said, is "Veneno Para Las Hadas", which is the Spanish for "poison for the fairies".
    The Insurgentes book says "a bottle not for keeping poison for the fairies", but it's quite clear that it's sharing, not keeping. Anyway, the meaning's almost the same.
    I think the meaning of the first strophe is quite clear, while I can't really understand what the second one is about.
    Just wondering... The line "a bottle not for keeping poison for the fairies" is written in the page next to one of the many disturbing pictures of dolls in the book... Could there be a sort of association between the dolls of the pics and the fairies of the lyrics? (you can see what I'm talking about in a pic in the official Insurgentes website...)

    General CommentI typed the title in exactly how the mp3 was titled that I got once I pre-ordered the album, but you guys are most likely 100% right(maybe they mislabeled the mp3?). And I'm sure your interpretation of the lyrics is correct, I was just trying to get some of these lyrics on here. :)

    General CommentDid anyone else immediately think of 'I Find That I'm Not Here' by PT? It was a section out of Sky Moves Sideways, but SW also performed it with John Wesley on the live album 'We Lost The Skyline'

    The introduction to this song with that, how to say...airy, kindof dreamscape, psychadelic, twisted guitar sound, the very first section immediately put me in mind of 'I Find...'. Amazing album though, as always. SW/PT is/are definitely God

    General CommentOne of the interpretations I've considered is that this song is about reflection and current situation.

    The first verse deals with the subject looking back sentimentally into childhood. S/he remembers the simplicity of youth, the ignorant bliss.

    The second verse is about growing older. The person doesn't feel things like s/he used to. The part about "a bottle not for sharing poison with the fairies" could essentially be about drowning pain with alcohol (poison being a metaphor for alcohol).

    Who knows! Just one way to look at it.
