I have seen the most incredible light
In your eyes, in your eyes, in your eyes
I have seen the most incredible light
In your eyes, in your eyes, in your eyes

So cast away all your pain
Once lost treasure in your hands again
You will rise into the flames

And reclaim the name which sees you fit
Into it, into it
Little baby born out of fables
Into ships, into ships
Friends split

So sail away on your dreams
Unknown treasure in the hollow beams

I never want to waste away
They want to take my name away
I never want to waste away
They want me dead, don't end the day with them

That's how they win
They get you in the rain
And you forget about your promise

They want to take your crown away
200 years in Ukraine
I want to see my family
I wear the past as a second skin

Hey
You are a bird of paradise
Your songs are woven into life
Then when we get you out of it
I want to rise, to set alight
The sky

    General CommentNote: I transcribed this all by ear, and I'm pretty sure there are at least a few mistakes, so if you have any corrections, please let me know! For a while I kept hearing "unknown treasure in the wallaby," but I was sure at least that wasn't right.

    General CommentI think you did a great job. I transcribed this also, but was afraid I had too many mistakes to post it. Here's how mine is different (but not necessarily right)....

    'And reclaim the name which sees you fit'
    'Unknown treasure in the hull of you'
    'And forget about your baroqueness (brokeness)' ??
    'They want to take the crown away'
    '200 years in ????' (still is unclear to me since he seems to stutter)
    'I want your eyes, to set alight the sky' (I like your line better)

    I posted the three easy songs already, but when I find time I'm going to try and get some more up.

    General CommentI think this whole Clues album is a closure on the whole Unicorns existence and ending. I read an interview somewhere where alden stated that he felt he didn't have any closure on the band and I feel like many of the songs deal with this and the past. Expanding upon this: I feel like this is a cry out to Nick Thorburn (partner in Unicorns, Islands lead now) -

    I have seen the most incredible light
    In your eyes, in your eyes, in your eyes
    I have seen the most incredible light
    In your eyes, in your eyes, in your eyes
    (he has -past tense- seen how good Nick could be from when they were together in Unicorns.)

    So cast away all your pain
    Once lost treasure in your hands again
    You will rise into the flames
    (he's telling him to rid himself off the hate and how it ended with them and their reunion -lost treasure- would be their's again)

    And reclaim the name which sees you fit
    Into it, into it
    Little baby born out of fables
    Into ships, into ships
    Friends split
    (once together, they could reclaim the name -Unicorns- and make and send their songs out but also not ignoring the past that once they're in ships again -in business together - friends split.)


    So sail away on your dreams
    Unknown treasure in the hollow beams
    (so for now, Alden is telling him to go with this Islands thing - see what kind of value, if any out of these hollow beams/rewards)

    I never want to waste away
    They want to take my name away
    I never want to waste away
    They want me dead, don't end the day with them
    (here he's talking about how he made a stance to distance himself from these record companies/expectations - about how they suck out your soul and they own you. They won't support alden's releases/direction and he's warning for Nick to not stand with them)

    That's how they win
    They get you in the rain
    And you forget about your promise
    (he's telling him that they are convincing and get him in the rain -money,fame- and make you forget about making good, new music that's true to himself - perfect fit)

    They want to take your crown away
    200 years in Ukraine
    I want to see my family
    I wear the past as a second skin
    (not sure about the 200 years in Ukraine fitting - but wanting to see his family is talking about the Unicorns family, him, Nick and Jamie - wearing the past as a second skin is saying that he hasn't forgotten about their past and he shows it.)

    Hey
    You are a bird of paradise
    Your songs are woven into life
    Then when we get you out of it
    I want to rise, to set alight the sky
    (last part- he compliments him and tells him how special his talent is and that when they convince/get him out of what he in now - they will reunite and Unicorns will rule again)

    Anyways - just my interpretation.
