We said we needed light
But nothing happened
So we forged a sun of gold
When you left us
As it wanders through the night
The thing then set afire
And the thing about it all...
We cursed what we desired

Wide open, the sky moved over
Wide open, the sky moved over
Wide open, the sky moved over
With cloud cover, cloud cover

Love like a rain washing over everything
When I wanted you to leave,
You would never let me be
And you watched me
You watched me

I closed my eyes and you made me see
I shut my mouth and you made me speak
You made me
You made me

Wide open, the sky moved over
Wide open, the sky moved over
Wide open, the sky moved over
With cloud cover, cloud cover

    My InterpretationI'm 99% sure this song is referring to the biblical story of the people of Israel in the desert in Exodus. Not entirely sure what they mean by cloud cover - if it's referring to -symbolism of a bad omen or
    -how there's inherent darkness that's tied to us wherever we go or if
    -cloud cover is supposed to be a promise of a constant chance at forgiveness for whenever we decide to look up at the heavens

    Nice song regardless. Really high quality stuff. These people got better with every album.
