"Gramarye" as written by and August Cinjun/tate Tate....
You show me a sign
To rise up from the world we know
And she's strung out on life
He soon rolls his teeth
Spilling out from a mouth into overflow back into me

Chorus:
She moves and it's fire
Underwater...
Speaks and it's flame
She speaks my name...
Well they all really want you
If only you had wanted them
Lights move to the chalk line
Change into dream that I am
Here we are again
How could I have seen
Always she's driving...
How could I have known
Right through the strange calling
Straight through the sound
Gramarye I've found
See how she's driving me down

Straight from the sound
She is seen as a bright sun to anyone
Hollow in mind
With the weight of the world
Trailing out 'til the last stream discovers me
Alive on vine
(Repeat Chorus)
I used to see something in the idea
But only once did my hands reach anything beautiful
Now she's turned away and I'm so...
(Repeat Chorus)

    General CommentOk, I am going to go out on a limb here and say that I think this song isn't about a woman at all.
    It is about inspiration. from start to finish, it seems to me that this song is about the search for the muse of creativity (personified as "she"). I'll attempt to explain my idea.
    At the start, the song describes using imagery of birds circling over a house, but the singer says that they are "in my confusion," meaning the birds are his thoughts. He has thoughts circling in his head all the time and they won't leave until he gives them sufficient attention.
    So the magic of the song is the artist's creativity, which gives him the belief that he can "rise above the world we know" into the abstract world of art and music that we all love so much.
    However, the muse that exists within his mind is muddled with reality. He can't escape from the archetypes and impacts of the life he leads each day to original and creative ideas. But when he listens to other artists. I'll continue this post in a second

    General CommentI love this song from Stigmata OST.
    Doesn't is seem about some glorious woman that everyone wants? She's everything to everyone, pure desire, but she's strangely poisonous, no good for him. She screws him up, but he still wants her. Perhaps?

    General CommentI get the idea that this "magical" girl is some sort of siren. They all want you, they're destructive as fire, they call for you...

    Or maybe it's about some cult...or drugs...

    But I always hear it as sirens when I listen to it.

    General Commenti think it's just a cool poem they wrote with imagery. artists do that sometimes. it doesn't necessarily have to mean anything specific, about like a person or something.

    General Commentso like I was saying, when he listens to other artists, he feels like they are singing with words that he would've used.
    overall, I think that this is just the expression of a perfectionist that is frustrated at always falling short of his own creative ideals. words like "sound" and "she" confuse because I believe they are symbols rather than their denotative meaning. Sound is the distraction of the artist's life, and she is the personification of creativity, or just the magic of an impactful moment in general.
    The theme continues through the song with the chorus, the artist's aside to the muse, telling her that everyone wants her but that she is aloof from all of them. yet she tempts them to drive towards creative aspirations following any idea they can (strangest calling), and they continue to pursue it though it will ultimately be far from their opus.
    As far as my attempt to explain the chalk lines, I believe he is referencing art, where it is common to draw lines with chalk to better understand proportion and scale, though it seems that when he references the light moving within those lines he is referring to them as more of a prison of standardized methodology. This is reinforced by the next line which refers to the "chains that define who I am." So the artist feels trapped by his inability to escape his own perspective on life.
    in the second verse, the artist again addresses the listener, talking about the muse as the well of creative ideas that has already become "hollow and mined," but to find that last nugget of originality is still very important. it carries the weight of the world, and the artist waits for when he will finally come up with that amazing idea after everyone else has given up, gotten off the "train." Vine refers to an actual avenue that showcases the work of artists.
    So the bridge is kind of a looking back for the artist, back to when he believed in his inspiration. But once the muse has turned away from him, he is again in despair, searching for his voice in the endless vibrations of "sound." And I'm out.
