Wish that i could come out of your phone
Superhero powers
Burst out of the sand
With a bunch of flowers and
You just say the word

Apparition comes
With a long and winning handsome smile
Wish we could connect
Step into the void

Off the diving board
Blend into the light
Down the cable-lines
Run under the earth

Re-forming on the wind
Two places at once
Taste the air with you
Undo all the ties

Wish that I could flip one of those eyes
Lift this all away
See that stretchy smile
Go right across your face

Cut a hole

    Lyric Correctionthis is the lyric version i agree with better;

    Wish that i could come out of your phone
    Superhero powers
    Burst out of the sound
    With a bunch of flowers and
    you just say the word
    Apparition comes
    With a long and winning handsome smile
    Wish we could connect
    Step into the void
    off the diving board
    Blend into the light
    Down the cable-lines
    Run under the earth
    re-forming on the wind
    Two places at once
    Taste the air with you
    Undo all ties
    wish that I could flip one of those eyes
    Lift this all away
    See that stretchy smile
    go right across your face

    cut a hole

    My InterpretationWish that i could come out of your phone

    Those are the lyrics i think are correct.


    MEANING-

    He is dead. The guy talking, the guy Thom is speaking for, is dead. I realized that at "Apparition comes, with a long and winning handsome smile. Wish that we could connect. Step into the void." He once loved the girl, but he has since passed away. She is seeking someone else, as the first three lines state.

    I believe she, his love interest, then commits suicide to be with him, and is happy in the end, hence "see that stretchy smile go right across your face".

    This song is very deep, and very hard to decipher. I hope my analysis proves to be useful.

    My InterpretationI originally thought of it as being about a long distance relationship. He wishes that he could "come out of her phone", i.e. he misses actually seeing her as opposed to talking over the phone. This is supported by "down the cable lines, run under the earth".

    He also want to be in "two places at once", so he want to be where his girlfriend is.

    "Cut a hole", for me, is how he wishes he could make some kind of portal to be able to travel to her. It reminded me of the book The Subtle Knife, where using a knife you could "cut a hole" in the air to teleport. Probably not a deliberate reference, but that's what it led me to think of.
