"Becomes the Color" as written by and Emily Jane Wells....
I became the color
I became the daughter and the son
When the feast is over
Welcome to another one

I lay my body down, down
Down upon the water
Wrapped up in the clothes of
My mother and my father

Oh this is longing
And I wanna be complete
I was waiting around my little girs seat
I had hunger, a mouthful of M

    Song MeaningDiscovered this song because of the movie ''Stoker''.

    The song meaning of this song in 1 phrase:

    ''Genius goes around the world in its youth incessantly apologizing for having large feet. What wonder that later in life it should be inclined to raise those feet too swiftly to fools and bores.'' , by F. Scott Fitzgerald


    This song is a coming of age, about a person who finally succeeds in life: only in her adult life, after all the suffering she went through during her childhood/ teenage years.
    It resembles a bird, finally flying, and it's laughing at the others left in the cage forever.

    ''I became the color
    I became the daughter and the son
    When the feast is over
    Welcome to another one''

    Introduces How She finally becames free, happy, successfull. She turns into the ''daughter and the son'', which represent the idea of youth and happiness and enjoyment, only after she enters Adulthood (''when the feast is over'')

    The character missed in her childhood, she was never young, But now she becames ''young forever'' after she is an Adult person. In other words, she turns into Big News. A bird finally is flying.

    She becomes The color, the darkness, the Truth ''When the feast is over''. When all the curtains were closed, Truth reveals itself.

    ''Welcome to another one''

    '' Lay my body down down
    Down upon the water
    Wrapped up in the clothes of my mother and my father
    O this is longing
    I want to be complete
    I was waiting round in a little jump seat''

    She lays her body down, as if it is some offer of expression about Herself/ Who she is.
    ''Wrapped up in the clothes of my mother and my father'', an expression of Who they made her, her both parents, who they are responsible for Who she is.

    ''I was waiting round in a little jump seat'' she waited 18 years to become adult, and finally it happened.

    ''I had a hunger
    A mouthful of interludes
    Youll do anything just to get rescued
    I had longing
    Isn't that the key
    Take take taste taste sweet''

    She is thristy for someone/something to rescue her, to free herself and finally express herself. She always waits for the right time, and the right circunstances.

    ''They said I'd gone south
    I'd gone asunder
    They don't know hunger or what I been under
    They were all laughing
    Thought I was debris
    I was just free''

    And the right circunstances to express herself is in Adulthood.
    In her past Childhood/Teenage years nobody understood her, because she was already an Adult since the beggining.

    ''We were ready to behave
    But there's no freedom
    Without no cage''

    Represents a bird, finally free, flying around the cage, now mocking the other ones stuck inside the cage.

    It also represents her being a prisioner all her life during Childhood, and how that suffering was turned into something beautiful after she grows up and becomes a beautiful adult.

    ''O no no, take me from my misery
    There's no such, thing as living comfortably
    There's no such, thing as going home
    I'm not formed of myself alone
    All the other others they'll just fade to black
    When you think you have me's when I don't look back
    Keep on laughing, callin after me
    Keep on laughin, I'm just free''

    ''Im not formed of myself alone'' states that, she knows that human beings are not isolated creatures, they are formed by all the stuff that is around them.

    But SO... this character is a killer inside, she cuts off all the others around her: -- ''All the other others they will just fade to black''-- ''When you think you have me is when i don't look back''--
    And, in the end, what lefts is only her. Her moment of glory, she wins.

    ''Keep on laughing, callin after me
    Keep on laughin, I'm just free

    We were ready to behave
    But there's no freedom
    Without no cage''
