try to hide down in the darkness
get accustomed to our shapes
reined in 'til next week at the earliest
go through an old box full of betamax tapes

pull the blankets up to my neck
and the screen began to glow
i cried real tears when they beat chuck norris down
wait here in the shadows 'til the shadows let me go

and treat each crushing moment like a gift
and wait for the fog to lift

pretend i'm waiting for a notice
from someone somewhere far away
sit here and break things while i'm waiting
as day gives way to day gives way to day gives way to day

but though i try to let the shadows mask my movements
they're never gonna hide me like they used to
i watch the delta force save everybody from that plane on fire
i was watching wishing i had not lost track of you

i treat each crushing moment like a gift
and wait for the fog to lift

    General Commenti believe the screen begins to "Glow," not "go," and it's the Delta Force ( imdb.com/title/tt0090927/ ), not the delta four.

    General Comment"Can a man take fire in his bosom
    And his clothes not be burned?"

    My InterpretationThis sounds like a song about depression. Sitting inside during interminable rain, unable to muster the effort to do anything but watch old movies and get pretty sentimental. This might be reaching a bit, but the last verse sounds almost like beginning to feel the depression slip away, and missing the privacy and intensity of those shadows.
