Back into those things you wish to undo
the crown for your tomb
not a day goes by or the nights for you
then dance in the rain
cause them town's all will miss your face
when we'll toast for the pain
then we'll taste of the halo of shame

and if you'll pass that number
waiting for the summer
so that you can not rest

curious perfections
those haunting life lessons
oh that you can not rest


You'll pass that number

    General Commentyea. i musta been far too in love with it at the time to listen to the words properly...seriously that was way back in may and it's still my favorite woods song. favorite song ever.

    im not sure about what it means anymore than i did 8 months ago. i guess no-one else is either...


    This is a badly written understanding of it. im feeling pretty sad at the moment so im probably going to think it's about death. which i actually think it is, but it's probably not. (but i really do think it is)

    i think the first line, whoever wrote this is talking about themselves, how they wish to undo the past
    and they mention the grave of someone they loved
    thinking about how time passes or doesn't pass for them any more
    and asking them to do the things they used to do
    because everyone misses them
    and when they drink for the pain
    they'll feel even more ashamed for trying to forget. the 'halo of shame' is a


    ...and i guess like they did in life, that person is waiting for it to be summer so they can do the things they used to do when they were alive
    but the perfections of life/death come back and can never go away

    and then he asks them to 'pass the number'
    wanting and believing that person to still be around to call up
    or that passing the number means that person wants to be a ghost too



    strangely sweet and comforting and spooky and bitter and perfect all at the same time
