"Spiders And Flies" as written by and Lee,alex/langley,john/duff,patrick/allen,joe/poole,julian....
Plans and schemes
Thoughts and dreams
Who care what they mean
When they work they're amazing things
When they don't I hear you scream
Spiders and flies
Live and die
Six legs to stand on and two wings to fly
I can't remember and I can't decide
What was the season and the color of your eyes
Pharaohs and kings
Favorite queens
Buried with their precious rings
When they lived they loved complete
But in their tombs, I hear them scream
Spiders and flies
Live and die
Six legs to stand on and two wings to fly
It makes you wonder, why can't I
What was the season and the color of your eyes
Psalms and spells
Magic blast
Who cares what they cast
I dreamed I'd always love you complete
I never thought I'd hear you scream
Spiders and flies
Live and die
Eight legs to stand on and two wings to fly
It makes you wonder, why can't I

    Lyric CorrectionPlans and schemes.
    Thoughts and dreams.
    Who care what they mean?
    When they work they're amazing things.
    When they don't, I hear you scream.
    Spiders and flies,
    Live and die.
    Six legs to stand on and two wings to fly.
    I can't remember and I can't decide.
    What was the season and the colour of your eyes? (eyes)
    Pharoahs and kings,
    Favourite queens,
    Buried with their precious rings.
    When they lived they loved complete,
    But in their tombs, I hear them scream.
    Spiders and flies,
    Live and die.
    Six legs to stand on and two wings to fly.
    I can't remember and I can't decide.
    What was the season and the colour of your eyes? (eyes)
    Psalms and spells.
    Magic blast.
    Who cares what they cast?
    I dreamed I'd always love you complete.
    I never thought I'd hear you scream.
    Spiders and flies,
    Live and die.
    Eight legs to stand on and two wings to fly.
    It makes you wonder, "Why can't I?"
    What was the reason for the colour of your eyes (eyes)
    Spiders and flies,
    Live and die.
    Eight legs to stand and two wings to fly.
    It makes you wonder, "Why can't I?"
    What was the reason for the colour of your eyes? (eyes)
    Spiders and flies,
    Live and die.
    Eight legs to stand on and two wings to fly.

    General CommentThe color of your eyes got changed, the mirror of your soul grew dark, and i can't remember what they were reflecting in the beauty of the seasons. All these future plans and impossible dreams only make you gloomier.

    Think about those pharoahs, those kings and queens, dead and buried, who would gladly give their gold and glory for a chance to live once more. I naively believed that loving you was enough to make you happy, but it seems that the pain is way deeper, that psalms and prayers won't change it.

    The fly will sooner or later be ensnared by the spider. One dies and one lives. But has it ever keep her from flying? Look at them, how they seem to accept the life they inherited. The spider won't ever stop spinning her web, the fly won't ever cease flying. In front of death, they won't refrain from living.

    The spider is not safe from accidents, and two legs are quickly lost. But has it ever keep her from walking? You, you do lost nothing, you're only looking for things you can't get, and you make yourself in despair. But see how we only need few things to live. And ask yourself what are the reasons for the color of your eyes.

    General Commentoh goodness. this is Magic
    to me this captures feelings of magic and loss, some beautiful bitter sweet lyrics to evoque the ridiculous fact that we're here today
    as small things, temporarely alive, wondering about the meaning of life and behind death, if there was any.
