"Permanating" as written by and Steven John Wilson....
Somewhere on the highway
With a luminous moon
Swimming after dark and then
Awaken to you

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And sing it
And live it
It's always there

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And feel it
Believe it

And time is moving on
And listenening to the song
We get older
Together

And every time we breathe
Another moment leaves us forever
To the nether

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And sing it
And live it
It's always there

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And feel it
Believe it

Permanating
Celebrating
Now we're levitating
High above the clouds
Yesterday
Is the place where all your friends will always

Permanating
Celebrating
Now we're levitating
High above the clouds
Yesterday
Is the place where all your dreams are always

And time is moving on
And listenening to the song
We get older
Together

And every time we breathe
Another moment leaves us forever
To the nether

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And sing it
And live it
It's always there

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And feel it
Believe it

Permanating
Celebrating
Now we're levitating
High above the clouds
Yesterday
Is the place where all your friends will always

Permanating
Celebrating
Now we're levitating
High above the clouds
Yesterday
Is the place where all your dreams are always

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And sing it
And live it
It's always there

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And feel it
Believe it

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And sing it
And live it
It's always there

Hold on
Hold onto the minute
And feel it
Believe it

    Song MeaningIt refers to those breathtakingly surreal moments we long for and realizing they're temporary, knowing there's nothing we can do to stop them from ending.

    He uses love as an example, and acts as a guy who tries to enjoy every second with his girl, hiding those negative ideas of time slipping by as a romanticly quirky "we're growing old together at least". But in reality he refers to any profound moment that makes us feel fulfilled and whole and knowing it'll end.

    Steven has named this "his happiest song", but he also explicitely said that this song refers to wishing those perfect moments in our lives to never end. He coined that concept of the adjetive "permate" and made it into a verb, refering to the action of "making something eternal, permanent, never ending".

    The video ends abruptly leaving the song incomplete, he does this live as well (at least in the To The Bone tour), reinforcing the idea that it's not entirely happy.
