lift the wheels up from the roadway
close your sparrow's glassy eyes
and walk upon the water once more for me
are those dead diamonds baby
or are they stars gone to sleep?

so low that you might miss me
slowly fades the light
so low that you might miss me
slowly fades the light

wait for the spring
and to this thing I do surrender
into the darkest sin I climb with the vine
on a graveyard train pulling away
drowning to dive down full fathom five
to wear the hollow crown
to haunt the hollow trees

and what from heaven's tongue is heard?
through the veins
love sustained
another night out

so low that you might miss me
slowly fades the light
another night out
another night out

wait for the spring
and to this thing I give myself
on a graveyard train pulling away
down into heaven
down into heaven
down into heaven
to wear the hollow crown
to haunt the hollow trees
to wear the hollow crown
to haunt the hollow trees

    My InterpretationWhen I hear this song, I think of a man old in age, well-traveled, going for one last trip because of the first verse, and near the end, transcending into the chorus, he asks if "those are dead diamonds" or "stars gone to sleep?" I believe that he is inferring to the twinkle in a lover's eye, long with him, but she has aged too, and thus the light, though it may be there, is dulled, not because of loss, but because it is glazed over. He puts it in such a loving way I cannot see it otherwise, and so he says in the chorus "So low that you might miss me...slowly fades the light", refers to that when he dies that he hopes that he will be missed, but not forgotten. The second verse alludes to his acceptance that he will die eventually, though I believe he says at the end of the second verse "..to wear the hallowed (holy) crown...to haunt the hollow trees...", as if to say he awaits whatever fate brings him, whether it is Heaven, or simply roaming as a spirit. He speaks again of heaven when he says that it's speech/chorus runs through his veins, that it is undying love, for yet another night.

    That is my interpretation, and I'm sure there are many ways it can be interpreted, but it really is a beautiful song and one of my favorites off of the new album.
