Eyes lose their fire
Stage set in red
All of this time
Lost in a mask

Eyes lose their fire
She smiles, hides
life support falling
eyes bloodshot and lost in a mask
they all, wait
crowds have been forming
noise spell binding out of control

Eyes lose their fire
Stage set in red
All of this time
Lost in a mask

Eyes lose their fire
Stage set in red
All of this time
Lost in a mask

Green lights, fly
cats eyes so blinding
hearts taken behind sheets of glass
She sits, still
hands out the window
eyes bloodshot and lost in a mask

Eyes lose their fire
Stage set in red
All of this time
Lost in a mask

    My InterpretationIt sounds to me like someone dying in a hospital.

    "Eyes lose their fire / Stage set in red / All of this time / Lost in a mask"
    She's dying. The life is fading from her eyes. The "stage set in red" likely means that she's bleeding, and as a result the area around her is bloody. The mask could be metaphorical, but I was thinking more along the lines of a ventilator.

    "Life support falling"
    Self-explanatory, though I wonder if it's not failing instead of falling or if it's just stylistic.

    "They all wait / Crowds have been forming / Noise spell binding out of control"
    This is someone important, and crowds are forming outside as people hope that she'll live. If not, perhaps its only friends and family members that seem more like a crowd with the pressure of apprehension? They're spellbound and can't move away.

    "Green lights fly / Cats' eyes so blinding"
    The heart monitor. Not entirely sure on the cats' eyes, but perhaps to give the imagery of green eyes on a black background?

    "Hearts taken behind sheets of glass"
    She's not getting any better, perhaps she's even dead by now. They're heartbroken behind the window(s) into the room.

    "She sits, still / Hands out the window"
    Not entirely sure...

    I have a very literal interpretation, but it seems to me that a lot of Kyte songs are literal.

    General CommentI wish there were more comments here, this song is so beautiful.
    Anyway, CicadaGhost might be right but after thinking about it a bit I had another idea.
    This might be about someone who kills herself by crashing her car. A lot of what was said in the other comment still fits. The red stage is because of the blood. And though I also think the green lights might be from medical devices, I think they are from the LEDs on them. They seem bright and blurred to her because it's dark and she's dying.

    She couldn't take life anymore, wearing a figurative mask, pretending to be happy. That's why she smiles to herself as she knows she's dying while medics are trying to save her, blood and pieces of glass all over her, crowds watching.

    I was wondering why she'd be sitting still with her hands out the window, that's what got me thinking of her sitting almost lifeless in the seat of her car after a crash.
    I might be totally off track and rambling here. It's just a thought that seemed to fit pretty well.

    Also, are their songs so easy to understand? I find them kinda cryptic. And maybe they even are supposed to be, so everyone would find their own meaning in them.
