"Peace Of Mind" as written by and Natasha Khan....
Look at this and look at us
We wonder, oh we're wondering
Unalike to say we're lost
Try my best with needing us

Build a ladder to the sky
(To the sky)
Sit up there and say oh my
(Say oh my)
Does looking down make a me a queen
(Make a me a queen)
All the sorrow that I see
(That I see)

If I ever get back down
Find a map that takes me back
Through the wounded, through the wars
To a time that came before

To hover bored into the sun
Come back when my time is done
A mother for this childless world
An arrow of light for every boy and girl

Peace of mind
Peace of mind
Peace of mind

    General CommentLook at this and look at us
    We wonder,oh, we're wandering
    And I don't like to say we're lost
    Try my best with leading us

    I was struck by the narrator refering to more than one person, which makes me think that the two beings of herself are being addressed- especially due to this song being primarily about reflection upon solitude.

    Build a ladder to the sky
    Sit up there and say 'Oh my!
    Does looking down make me a Queen?
    With all the sorrow that I've seen'

    She begins daydreaming, she cuts herself off and lets her imagination take her somewhere else. She is watching and observing. In this role she places herself in the familar spot of the queen (which as I've mentioned was who she played on moon and moons album, but I'm curious as to why she keeps going back to it...unless she views the queen as someone who is wise and powerful, but not all about those factors- I mean think about how a queen contrasts with a king, or a princess...) and cuts herself off. She can look and judge without anyone knowing.

    And if I ever get back down...
    Find a map that takes me back
    Through the wounded, through the wars
    To a time that came before

    if she ever breaks from the constant watching, she will get to a place that came before the heartbreak (possibly to Daniel). With a map she will always have the knowledge to get to that place.

    To hover-board into the Sun
    And bring back when my time is done
    A mother for this childless world
    And an arrow of light for
    every boy and girl

    The sun is essentially a creator and the nuturing force of this earth. Maybe Natasha believes that the soul will unite with a higher force (the sun) after death and that the light she will create as part of this being will be her children. I also view this as perhaps a maternal tug. I read in an interview that she'd love to be a mother (this was dated summer 08, so maybe the split was taking or had just taken place) but she'd never find the time, or that she couldn't even look after a cat. When you daydream, your mind can take you anywhere you wish.

    Natasha is an imaginative person who looks to fantasy and I get the feeling that she recieves 'peace of mind' from being deep in thought that being alone can provide. When I think about it, I feel that way too sometimes.

    By the way, does anybody actually like this song or what?

    General CommentI do in fact enjoy this song and the folkish/torch song vibe it gives off. Very excellent listening on a hot summer's day.
