This town has no seasons-- it's the middle of October, and you'd think there'd be a nice, cool breeze by now (but you'd be wrong). The summer lingers here for half of the year-- and I'm convinced that we are all about to crash into the sun. I fell asleep on paper wings. These people have no feelings-- their heads are the only things that ever teach them anything about love. And I'm not sad, I just want to trust someone so badly. I just want something beautiful to happen here right now. I fell asleep on paper wings. These words have no manners-- they come to me at night when I am trying to sleep (and shake me violently, like it's the end of the world or something). And I wake up on paper wings.

    General Comment"I feel asleep on paper wings"
    What do you think that means? I was thinking maybe something as sinple as "I feel asleep while writing" :)

    General Commentyou can't fly if your wings a paper, you just flop to the ground, and every time you try to fly with them, you'd just flop to the ground again.

    this song is so super cool.

    General Commentthe song is based on a reference to icarus, who flew too close to the sun when his dad made him wings and he burned up.

    General Comment^ not true. the story of daedalus and icarus, he fabricated wings from actual feathers and attatched the feathers with strings and wax. Icarus was warned not to fly too close to the sun for fear of the wax melting and not too low to the ground because the humiditiy would dampen the feathers.

    General CommentA.k.a. it's about complacency for moderation... and Chris is singing about being unhappy with mediocrity.
