If I could put you in a frame, I'd draw you smiling
With a cigarette in your mouth and your hands reaching out for something
If I could, if I could wear all your clothes I'd still be different
And if I had your speaking voice I'd never whisper
I'd talk and talk and talk

We will be winners
Our heads glued together
And all is indefinite in you

Whatever you've been told
Don't turn to God because you're cold
Try the black one, white is nice
If you want blue, you'll pay the price
Is there no room for us
I'll make a space for us

We will be winners
Our heads glued together
And all is indefinite in you

Meet me in front of the room where we kissed
Where you changed me, estranged me
Where no one resists
Where I followed you, hollowed by you

We will be winners
Our heads glued together
And all is indefinite in you
We will be winners
We will be winners

    General Commentthe last song of Cocoon Crash... You know? I didn't even notice this song for a long time, but the minute I *really* listened to it, it grabbed me. It always makes me quiet (and that's hard! trust me! hehe)

    Does anyone know the meaning behind this section? it sounds like Sarah is questioning any faith that she may/may not have

    General CommentI love the darkness of the chord under "we will be winners", it' almost threatening!

    General CommentI've always kinda had the opinion that this was written about Sarah's first lesbian love, or at least some kind of socially taboo romance.
    I think the line 'try the black one, white is nice, if you want blue you'll pay the price' is saying that you have to do what's expected by society and considered safe and normal: picking a colour instead of just black or white has the price of being shunned and misunderstood.
    Plus the line '...where we kissed. where you changed me, estranged me' sorta feels like this person, by kissing her, opened up this whole new world that she hadn't even considered before.
    No idea if its even remotely on track, but its such a damn good song, who cares what it means?

    General Commenthi all. rikku, i agree with you. actually, if you take a look to k's choice's last work ('ten' - sort of like a greatest hits and unreleased tracks - AMAZING!!!), you can see that under 'winners', sarah explains that she wrote the song based on the movie 'heavenly creatures', by peter jackson (with kate winslet, about two girls falling in love).
    'meet me in front of the room where we kissed...' is word-by-word what you have described.
    k's choice is the greatest band ever. nobody DARE say otherwise or i'll kick their asses. yeah.
