"White" as written by and Will Sheff....
We crashed through cased glass
And the white pot burst of the fiery blast
We fled through chilled air and the deafening land, scattering ash
Sun is here and I'm gonna crack, crack, crack
Sun is here and I'm gonna crack

We soared through sharp quotes in a jewelry store
As your sister and dad
Concerned with kept poisons, why in the world is here his light?
Sun is here and I'm gonna crack, crack, crack
Sun is here and I'm gonna crack

Sun is here and I'm near a heart attack
Flash of fear and national blasting wield to black

'Cause kids, when I forsake the morals I was right and she was wrong
But that just kinda meant she was bringing back
When I was first the driver, I felt good and he felt bad
But kids, you'll find that most the time you feel trapped
Spring is gone and you go gas, gas, gas
Spring is gone and you go gas

And friends, when I first say the ' in the darkness of the tomb
I was unversed through it all, I was right
When I first saw the problem inside I just cried
Some have cars and cries to stop, just say it now
Fall is here and you talking down, down, down
Fall is here and you talking down, down, down
Winter is here, it's too cold to drown, drown, drown
Winter is here, it's too cold do drown, drown, drown
Winter is here, it's too cold to drown, drown, drown
Winter is here, it's too cold do drown, drown, drown
Winter is here, it's too cold to drown, drown, drown
Winter is here, it's too cold do drown, drown, drown
Winter is here, it's slowing down
Winter is here, and I'm nearly '
I don't want me around

    My InterpretationThis song seems to serve as a reminder that amongst the chaos of everyday, our lives keep moving. The seasons change.

    The first half reads as a record of a youth's wild summers when everything moved fast and each day was a cinematic adventure.

    As the song progresses, he presumably gets older, talking about marriage, and the song takes a desperate turn. The seasons keep changing, but it's moving too fast, and the things that should change, don't. We run out of time, we miss opportunities. We begin to see the changing seasons as a way to procrastinate, or push back responsibilities/goals.

    The song also progressively picks up pace. The first half feels hopeful about the future while the second half has the urgency of someone who thinks they're running out of time.

    General CommentSince LyricFind is stupid and messed up the lyrics, here are the lyrics again, from the Silver Gymnasium booklet:


    We crashed through crazed glass in the white-hot burst of the fiery blast. We flared through choked air, in the deafening blare, in the scattering ash. We said, "Summer's here and I'm gonna crack crack crack." We sort through shocked quartz like a jewelry store -- while your sister and dad consort with kept courtesans, while the whole world sits in ruins. We laugh, "Summer's here and I'm gonna crack! Summer's here and I'm near a heart attack or flash of real feeling, teeth gnashing, and blasting and reeling through black."

    Because, kids: When I first saw your mom, I was right and she was wrong about just the type of man she was bringing back. And when I first met her dad, I felt good and he felt bad. But, kids, you'll find that, over time, you're just trapped. And spring is gone and you're gonna gasp gasp gasp.

    And, friends: When I first saw the groom rise from the darkness of the tomb, I was unnerved (though, overall, I was wowed). And when I first saw the bride, the look inside her eyes just cried, "If someone has some cause to stop, say it now!" But now fall is here, and the leaves all go down. And then winter's here, and it's too cold to drown, and I'm nearly whited-out, snowblind, like it's no business of mine if life doesn't want me around.
