You feel it all around yourself
You know it's yours and no one else
You feel the thought of love again
It's all around
You're tired of all the things you did
You work it out

You feel it all around yourself
You know it's yours and no one else
You feel the thought of love again
It's all around
You're tired of all the things you did
You work it out

    General CommentOne of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard in my life.

    I think "learning" is "love", though. I just don't hear "learning" in there. Doesn't make much sense, either.

    Lyric CorrectionI believe the line "You're tired of all the things you did" could possibly be "In spite of all the things you did."

    My InterpretationI think this song is talking about the way addiction (drugs or bad love/habits) makes you feel and its typical relapse cycle that is never ending. I think that because of the lyrics but also because of the ambient HAZE that the song makes you experience with its sounds. The sound surrounds you just like addiction. This song made me feel high/stoned just listening to it. I also think that because the song is one set that repeats itself over and over again- like the cycle of addiction. i see the cycle split into three in this song and here they are...

    in the beggining- you feel it all around yourself (your drug of choice consumes you)
    you know it's yours and no one else (it gives you a feeling that only you
    know and it's precious to you. it's
    personal)
    In the middle- you feel the thought of learning again ( i think this is referring to when you
    start to admit to yourself you have a
    problem. you start craving the life
    you had before where you learned
    things and grew as a person)
    it's all around (that craving for learning and living is all around. you feel
    it. your family tells you, your friends tell you, you can't
    deny it anymore. it's all around

    In the end- you're tired of all the things you did (the way you were when you were an
    addict. the person you were, the things
    you said and did. you're tired of it all

    you'll work it out (this is something everyone says to
    themselves at some point in time but this is
    something all addicts think to themselves
    almost every day. you reason with yourself
    that it will all work out so you keep doing it

    Song MeaningWashed out is all about the past. Especially giving nostalgia to people who grew up in the 80's. There are hidden, almost "subliminal messages" in the music; of old songs, commercial tunes, sound effects from radios, or small things people grew up hearing and didn't notice. Doing this brings nostalgia to some. This song is one of the most obvious examples, just listen to "I want you" by Gary Low. I've heard some things about the music being made by using sounds from cassettes, and that might be a reason why the audio is so wild. It almost sounds like there was way to much hypercompression before it was mastered, but it sounds cool and easy to listen to. That's good enough for me.

    General CommentI believe they are something more like this.

    Listen to the Toro Y Moi remix of this song. It's easier to tell.

    You feel it all around yourself
    You know it's yours and no one else
    You feel the thought of learning then
    It's all around
    You're tired of all the things you did
    You like it all
