I saw this alone. The city was aflame.
Did I turn right in or turn away?
Seems I went back home, holed up for
a day. Some say a year passed but
that's okay, I'll stay. Disappear with
me here where the sun shows no fear,
as it burns my resolution to remain,
to refrain from the contending the flame
as I join this great illsion
reappears. Summertime is long. In
god's name who would stay? God left
yesterday but I remain. So I left my
home and took a whole new name.
Blessed be the ghost the fire claims
today. "Who will sing my name?" So
sang the flame that gave my name.
Dissapear, disappear...dissappear.

    General CommentAwesome song, but very depressing. In my opinion, meaning is same as meaning of The Great Disappointment from STS. Something to do with Davey's disappointment to God.
