"Shine" as written by Shi-anne Ragsdale, Monty Powell and Anna Wilson....
We live around the hydro towers
Listen to them singing in the park
Wind our clock too tight
And all the radios are glowing in the dark
Mothers lie down in the day time
And dream about Hollywood
I know that they'd get there if they could

[Chorus:]
It's just a matter of time
Before we get to shine
It's not a question of when
Or who does the crime

We show our skin through picture windows
Sit around cross legged on the floor
Our living rooms electric,
TVs, light bulbs, irons, cancer to the core
Out in our back yards waiting
For women in flying saucers
Under the stars and power lines

[Chorus:]

The fans and the air conditioners
Runnin' in movie houses
The mother's not coming home again

[Chorus:]

    General Commenti don't think it's about dying.. most of the lyrics talk about how everything's gone electric, and how we live in such an unnatural world now, we live beneath the towers and radios, mothers dream of the hollywood lights/camera instead of their own children, everything around us has gone electric, light bulbs, television, and even as its causing us cancer we are all still attracted to it and that lifestyle.. everyone wants to shine like all these flashy toys we have to play with.. we used to look up at night and see the stars, now the power lines are in between.. and the women we desire are no longer our average common women but plastic, alien-like..

    these are great lyrics btw, just found this song..

    General Commenti think by shine he means die, into another life freed from this one to 'shine' eternally.. from cancer and death caused by power lines maybe??
