"Waffle" as written by Jeremy Enigk, William Goldsmith, Dan Hoerner and Nate Mendel....
Father may I go so slowly in my own dreams
Standing here alone in the dark know my weight

Down where I've gone next time
Show your glory
Won't go away
Won't go away
Then I saw the magic glowing of your hand
If I could move this letter
Casting eyes from above you
(Last time)
I have held diamonds in my hand
(One time)
Weren't you alone?
Opened my eyes
When I was sleeping
Thank you
The town, the field
Every to moment
Diamonds are free-well
So long whilst I remain so
Been a savior to me

Mother may I go so slowly in my own dream
Standing here alone in the dark
Well I do

Down where I've gone next time
Show me your glory
Won't go away
Just go away

Then I saw the magic glowing in your eyes
If I could move each letter casting eyes from above
You remind me of a secret, place woe
Then I saw the magic glowing out you're name
We'll ask your name oh, we'll ask your name

It's Hiding, then rise
Planets sky
Will make still
I can dream

    General Commentoh, but about the meaning...

    for some reason i always think of sexual abuse or incest when i read these lyrics. it makes me think a boy's father abuses him & his mother, and the boy is telling his mom how to escape it all. and rise with lettered sky. kind of a depressing theory, but that's life...

    General CommentI think this song, as a whole, is referring to Jeremy's ever growing faith in God, although some of the lyrics dont altogether make that obvious. I think all of the references to Parents in this song may be in reality another way of referring to Jesus. "The magic glowing of your hand" is Jeremy's awakening to the power of faith in God. I also think that this song is about realizing you can accomplish so much more if you allow yourself to believe you can.

    Just my two cents, its a great song.

    General CommentSVTristan is right. This is more or less a transcription of a mystical experience where the singer feels close to either two dieties or two facets of the same diety. It's not clear if that distinction even matters to the singer.

    The last part I interpret as: the will to make stillness inside yourself causes an almost slippery consciousness expansion. Planets, sky.
