"Aeolus" as written by and Charles Criss Kevin Joseph Read....
Send me to the docks where we met
The disappointed bridge that haunts the egrets
Slip under the floorboards (my love)
With all his crooked fingers waving at us

Take me to the wave where I came
Flush into the world with blue skin choking
Little bits of diamond crushed up
For all the animals to eat on Sunday

Pier into their insides (they glow)
With all the precious metals we dug up for
Circuit boards and spaceships
My fluorescent gods I've waited for this

Keep me in your warm arms (my love)
Cradle me while I unhinge my neurons
Power down the wind farm
All the animals are laughing at us

    General CommentI'm not surprised that there aren't many comments on the songs from Diluvia; Weathervanes was much more narrative and Diluvia is more challenging to interpret. These songs have to be viewed from the general theme of the futuristic destruction of Earth (diluvia = flood, with its biblical implications): interstellar travel, robots developing emotions, transferring alien DNA into humans in ancient Egypt, and the like.

    This song: really vague pronoun use, very hard to disentangle particulars. Generally, though, this song seems to be about robots evolving sentience and fleeing Earth.

    Aeolus = god of the wind (given)
    Crooked fingers = kelp
    little bits of diamond crushed up = carbon
    animals = humans
    your warm arms = spaceships
