Eustacia Vye,
forbidden fruit of my eye;
Oh why that long face
of utter sorrow?

I was getting high
when you proposed
that you and I
clandestinely meet
on the 'morrow

But, I haven't seen it yet
I want to see it, yes
So let me get you into bed
so that I can see it.

I'm glad you were born, kid
We are stars in a septic sea
Meet me in the sky
so that we can be free

My Bostonian love,
out of fear of sounding dumb,
I think you have a
drinking problem

And my Bostonian love,
out of fear of sounding dumb again;
Why do you date
so many women?

But, I haven't seen it yet
I want to see it, yes
So let me get you into bed
so that I can see it.

I'm glad you were born, kid
We are stars in a septic sea
Meet me in the sky
we can be free

I'm glad you were born, kid
We are stars in a septic sea
Meet me in the sky
we can be free

I'm glad you were born, kid
We are stars in a septic sea
Meet me in the sky
we can be free
Meet me in the sky
we can be free

    My InterpretationNightmare of You also has a previous song which mentions "Eustacia". It is their song "You're Very Dear to Me", where he confesses to women that he finds them very dear to him, and why he feels that way. Eustacia's verse goes like this:
    "Eustacia, bounding and gagging,
    you're such a thrill, I put you right on the pill,
    you're very dear to me, now have your way with me."

    This makes me think that if this verse, and the song "Eustacia Vye" have any truth to them, that Eustacia was a lover of someone within the band. I think that this song describes his meeting with Eustacia, his desires for her, how he had wanted to get into her bed. It also suggests that he cares for her very deeply, but in a more friendly way than love. With the way he describes Eustacia, it seems as though she is careless, and fun loving, and that's why he is so attracted to her. So when he says "meet me in the sky, we can be free". It's just him saying that when he dies, he hopes to meet her again so that they can be together and fun loving once more.
