when the ghosts of me refuse to speak
and in my dreams I watch tv
I’m blue inside, I’m the blue light
and I need this town, this white town
and I’m the red blood of this white town
parade in someone else’s crown (x4)
from the back of my head tied to the back of my head tied to the back of my head tied...
a braid of voices: david, david

    General CommentHe mentions red, white and blue. Perhaps a reference to USA? If so, it seems like he's talking about the weight of realization that your freedom was bought with others' bloodshed; and he contrasted that with the mundane, tv watching culture of Americans now refering to himself. It gives me the impression he was dreaming of the history channel or something. The "I" is someone on the screen. But it also seems more personal, because the last line mentions his name. It's so somber.
