"Laughing Hieroglyphic" as written by and David Michael Portner....
Do you know where you are?
No
I was talking to
The other day and
He told me that
The reason I guess so
I was angry
It was so strong

The flies in the dark
With their ways of
Shedding some light
Now I've lost all my day

I think they all very lucky
With internal parts like a lemon sunray

It's so easy to get lost in the mixture
When forces strike
Hard
You wear your real
Throw your shoe

I didn't think you were struggling
So long
With all of the wild things
That we could so young

I must have wrapped you up and left you hanging upside down
But I was too busy getting lost in
The big sound
The big sound

I traded but all life is saved and
To burn in those nights
And ask how are you mother?

If we could have just engaged
How to do things my weakness
In detecting other

But the worlds are all jumbled and faded
My heart is a nurse but
My tongue's in the blender

Now it's become something creative
I know it's not much but just let it right into your gut

And hold me up inside the days
The light will change its gifts every hour and hour
And the same things halt me me what's halting you

Lately I've been seeing things
They look like they float at the back of my head room
I don't find it strange when I'm talking to you

Lion in your dreams, the lion is you
But your dream, except that I am the lion,
Would probably try and come and risk you too

And when I get fucked up I
Do my best to make myself not fucked up again
And my heart and my lungs do
Why can't I do the same for everyone I love too?

I'm flying with you and you and me and if we don't close
I'm flying with you and you and me and if we don't close

Lately I've been seeing things
They look like they float at the back of my head room
I don't find it strange that I'm talking to you

The lion in your dreams, the lion is beautiful
Your dreams, except that I am the lion,
Would probably try and forward and risk you too

    General CommentLove this song. Surprised there's not any comments yet. The sounds caught me from the beginning(especially the strained notes he sings on certain words) but now that I know the lyrics this song's amazing.

    General CommentLyrics:
    The flies in the dark with their ways
    Of shedding some light, now I've lost all my day
    I think they are very lucky
    With internal parts like illumined sun rays

    It's so easy to get
    Lost in the mixture
    When forces strike hard
    You wear your layers or you'll shiver

    I didn't think you were
    Struggling so long
    With all of the wild things
    That we took so young

    How it must have wrapped you up
    And left you hanging upside-down
    When I was too busy getting lost in
    The big sound, the big sound

    Now I'd trade in all I'd saved
    To fly to those nights and ask, "How are you brother?"
    If we could have just engaged
    I'd have enhanced my weakness in comforting others

    But the words are all jumbled and faded
    My heart is a nurse, but my tongue's in the blender
    Now it's become something creative
    I know it's not much, but just let it right into your gut

    And hold me, I've been sad for days
    The light does change its gifts, every hour's devoured
    But the same things haunt me, what's haunting you?

    Lately I've been seeing beings
    They look like they float at the back of my headroom
    I don't find it strange, but I'm talking to you

    Lion in your dreams,
    The lion is good for your dreams, accept the lion
    The lion would probably try and come and embrace you too

    And when I get fucked up, I'll do the best
    To make myself not fucked up again, my heart and my lungs too
    Why can't I do the same for everyone I love too?

    How about it'll be you and me and the leader of the ghosts

    How about it'll be you and me and the leader of the ghosts

    Lately I've been seeing beings
    They look like they float at the back of my headroom
    I don't find it strange, but I'm talking to you

    Lion in your dreams,
    The lion is good for your dreams, accept the lion
    The lion would probably try and come and embrace you too

    General CommentThis is my interpretation of the words:

    The fires in the dark
    With their ways of shedding some light
    Now I've lost all my day

    I think they are very lucky
    With internal parts like a lemon sun rays

    It's so easy to get lost in the mixture
    When forces strike hard
    You wear your real
    Throw your shoe

    I didn't think you were struggling so long
    With all of the wild things that we took so young

    How it must've wrapped you up and left you hanging upside down
    But I was too busy getting lost in the big sound

    And I traded with all I have saved
    To fly in those nights
    And ask "How are you mother?"

    If we could have just engaged how to do things
    My weakness in confronting others

    But the words all jumbled and faded
    My heart is a nurse but my tongue's in the blender

    Now it's become something creative
    I know it's not much but just let it right into your gut

    And hold me I've been sad for days
    The light who change its gifts every hours and hour
    And the same things haunt me in what's haunting you

    Lately I've been seeing things
    They look like they float at the back of my head room
    I don't find it strange when I'm talking to you

    The lion in your dreams,
    The lion is good for your dreams
    Except the lion that I am
    Would probably try and come and erase you too

    And when I get fucked up
    I do the best to make myself not fucked up again
    My heart and my lungs do
    Why can't I do the same for everyone I love too?

    I'm flying with you and me and the idea of the ghost
    I'm flying with you and me and the idea of the ghost

    Lately I've been seeing things
    They look like they float at the back of my head room
    I don't find it strange when I'm talking to you

    The lion in your dreams,
    The lion is good for your dreams
    Except the lion that I am
    Would probably try and come and erase you too

    General CommentI love the line when he says "But I was too busy getting lost in the big sound". Most likely referring to his band.

    I also love how Avey sings "I don't find it strange when I'm talking to you".

    My InterpretationDown there
    Do you know where you are? No
    I was talking to
    The other day and he told me that
    The reason I guess so
    I was angry
    It was so strong

    The flies in the dark with their ways of shedding some light now I’ve lost all my day
    I think they are very lucky with internal parts like illumined sun rays

    It’s so easy to get lost in the mixture
    When forces strike hard you wear your layers or you’ll shiver

    I didn’t think you were struggling so long
    With all of the wild things that we took so young

    How it must have wrapped you up and left you hanging upside down
    But I was too busy getting lost in the big sound, the big sound

    Now I’d trade in all I’ve saved
    To fly to those nights and ask how are you mother

    If we could have just engaged
    I’d have enhanced my weakness in confronting others

    But the words are all jumbled and faded
    My heart is a nurse but my tongue’s in the blender

    Now it’s become something creative
    I know it’s not much but just let it right into your gut

    And hold me I’ve been sad for days
    The light does change its gifts every hours devoured
    And same things haunt me
    What’s haunting you?

    Lately I’ve been seeing beings
    They look like they float at the back of my head room
    I don’t find it strange when I’m talking to you

    Lion in your dreams the lion is good for your dreams accept the lion
    The lion would probably try and come and embrace you too

    And when I get fucked up I do the best to make myself not fucked up again
    And my heart and my lungs too
    Why can’t I do the same for everyone I love too

    How about it’ll be you and me and the leader of the ghosts

    Lately I’ve been seeing beings
    They look like they float at the back of my head room
    I don’t find it strange when I’m talking to you

    Lion in your dreams the lion is good for your dreams accept the lion
    The lion would probably try and come and embrace you too
