Oh whoa.
Oh whoa.

Oh whoa.
Oh whoa.

Oh whoa.
Oh whoa.

Oh whoa.
Oh whoa.

I remember they would say,
"It's all okay. I'll be alright."
Every night I could hear it.
I remember.

I could hear it in the wind:
that melody that they would play
every single day to remind us
it was over.

And it went,
"Oh whoa."
"Oh whoa."
And it went,
"Oh whoa."
"Oh whoa."

And it went,
"Oh whoa."
"Oh whoa."
And it went,
"Oh whoa."
"Oh whoa."

I remember they would say,
"It's all okay. I'll be alright."
Every night I could hear it.
I remember.

I could hear it in the wind:
that melody that they would play
every single day to remind us
it was over.

And it went,
"Oh whoa."
"Oh whoa."
And it went,
"Oh whoa."
"Oh whoa."

I remember.

    My InterpretationThe lyrics sound like propaganda that is being used to make citizens believe that everything is normal and in order.

    Song MeaningI belive the song is about nostalgia and the hardness of saying goodbye to people/places/routines/memories.
    Here is what I think of the lyrics' meaning:

    "I remember they would say its all okay, you'll be alright, and every night i could hear it, I remember."
    This line talkes about the attepts to convince yourself, or to be convinced by others, that this goodbye will not be as bad as you think.

    "I could hear it in the wind, that melody that they would play every single day, to remind us it was over"
    This line talks about the unspoken truth. The fact that a good time is now over and there is nothing you can do about it.

    "And it went: ooowwoowooah"
    This is probably Tristam's way of explaining that feeling with a melody, which is very emotional and deep, but also a little cherring. The sadness of a goodbye with the sweetness of happy memories.
