No crickets, no creatures are a stirring
On the last night of the Chinese year
I need a warm hand over the water
Ever since I lost mine
Fireworks disaster

I laid up wide awake
Gonna take my life
Gonna take my life back one day

Now I'm watching you changing in the mirror
And I'm unable to move
When all my girlfriends appear in the doorway
I don't know how they got here
I don't know what to say about this

And they all go that way
Gonna take my life
Gonna take my life back one day

    General CommentI think it's just, "I laid up wide awake." (Or maybe he does sing "quite" instead of "wide"?)

    That last line gets me so bad...

    General CommentGreat song. I read it as this being a narrative of his worst nightmare.

    He loses his hand in a fireworks accident then takes his life.

    What's really cool is the second half of the song is like he's narrating as if he's dead and his ghost is seeing what's going on.

    All his girlfriends coming into the funeral home while he is lying there.. he can't do anything.. he just watches along as a confused, motionless ghost. it's truly a mess.

    so dark

    FJM is amazing
