"Inside" as written by and Peter John Lawlor....
Swing low
In a dark glass hour
You turn and cower
See it turn to dust
Move on a stone dark night
We take to fight
Snowfall turns to rust

Seam in a fusing mine
Like a nursing rhyme
Fat man starts to fall
Here in a hostile place
I hear your face start to call

And if you think
That I've been loosing my way
That's because I'm slightly blinded
And if you think
That I don't make too much sense
That's because
I'm broken minded

Don't keep it
Inside
If you believe it
Don't keep it all inside

Strong words
In a Ganges sky
I have to lie
Shadows move in Pairs
Ring out from a bruised postcard
In the shooting yard
Looking through the tears
Out of the black slate time
We move in line
But never reach an end
Fall in a long stray town
As the ice comes round
River starts to bend

And if you think
That I've been loosing my way
That's because I'm slightly blinded
And if you think
That I don't make too much sense
That's because
I'm broken minded

Don't keep it
Inside
If you believe it
Don't keep it all inside

    My InterpretationTo me this song speaks of a good time turned bad (see it turn to rust), and a struggle to come to terms and accept what has come to pass for the lyric writer.

    After looking at the phrase "Strong words in a ganges sky, I have to lie, Shadows move in pairs" it strikes me that the there is allusion toward imprisonment, perhaps a reference to where prisoners are shackled together, and inmates keep themselves to themselves.

    A second experience seems to be born in the later words of the song, where the songwriters speaks of being broken minded, and to myself that speaks of mental illness, so where I have mention imprisonment above, it could be that patients of an aslyum are known to pair together in a smoking area.
