Remote places where we'll go.
Without a doubt
I don't think the stars are symbols.
But let's find out.
And here we go
up
into the
stars.

Inside the pyramid, deeper in it,
hidden exit after Osiris.
All the stars are swords, I've never been so sure.

But 'til then we'll be hanging on the wall,
all our faces will be boomerangs hanging on the wall.
All the trees started to walk and all the rivers started to talk,
but only through digital manipulation.

    My InterpretationI think this is a love song, or about hoping love will last forever. I read some interview where He (Jack) said that the songs are a lot more sentimental than you might think. And it's to do with eternity (eternal love?) Going away somewhere remote together, the rush of infatuation being the surge towards the stars. "After Osiris", it will last beyond death (Osiris was King of the Underworld in ancient egyptian mythology but also the Lord of Love). I thought alot about the ending chant. I think it's saying before we attain this, or get this feeling, we will be unhappy, our faces will be like a boomerang upside down (a frown), and the only way we'll be alive is through something more fake (digital manipulation). Love is the real thing. Also, the outro fits together with the themes of nature vs technology that we find in the album overall, so maybe is not completely related to the previous section.

    My InterpretationThis interpretation also fits in with the bit in White Chords where he says "You are in the stars, I will meet you there".
