"Juanita : Kiteless : To Dream Of Love" as written by and Darren Paul Emerson Karl Hyde....
your rails.
you're thin.
your thin paper wings.
your thin paper wings.
in the wind.
dangling.
your sun.
fly high.
your window shattering.
your rails.
you're thin.
your thin paper wings.
sugar box. sugar boy.
riding in. sugar box.
sugar boy.
handheld candle.
sugar boy.
your rails.
you're thin.
your thin paper wings.
your thin paper wings.
in the wind.
dangling.
your sun.
fly high.
your window shattered in the wind.
your coca cola sign rattling.
resonator.
hopeless strays
gathering.
outside your window bootleg babies call to you and lie among the mosquitoes.
that summers fever coming.
cats are gathering outside your window.
homeless trees.
bootleg babies calling to you.
lie among.
lie among the mosquitoes.
your rails.
youre thin.
your thin paper wings.
get up in your sun.
fly high.
dangling.
dangling.
your window shattered in the wind.
the sun on your coca cola sign.
your rails.
your thin paper wings.
paper wings.
resonator.

::

there is a sound on the other side of this wall.
a bird is singing on the other side of this glass.
footsteps.
concealed.
silence is preserving a voice.
walking in the wind at the waters edge comes close to covering my rubber feet.
listening to the barbed wire hanging.
there is a sound on the other side of this wall.
a bird is singing on the other side of this glass.
footsteps.
concealed.
silence is preserving a voice.
silver chain.
thrown away.
broken wing.

    General CommentCouple of things: I'm pretty sure the words are not "homeless trees" but "hopeless strays". But that's just me being pedantic seeing as I don't know what it means either way.

    Also, a lyrics site I found claimed that the lines about "paper wings" were in fact "paper weights"! I spose it's not out of the question for Karl Hyde to visualise paperweights in the wind dangling, but it still seemed like an odd suggestion.

    General CommentI concur with ReActor that "homeless trees" should be "hopeless strays", though it could also be "homeless strays". The lyric reminds me of a character in the book La Peste (The Plague) by Albert Camus. This man throws bits of paper outside his window to attract stray cats (homeless or hopeless strays) then spits at them when they get near.

    I don't have a clue as to what this song means, and perhaps it's simply cryptic to be cryptic, but it's an amazing song. It's not often that you hear an electronic song with movements. On the live CD, which I wholly recommend, there is a wonderful contrast in the vocal, which is robot-like in the first half, but then turns to "human" at "there is a sound on the other side of this wall", to great effect.
