Spirit White, blackened ground
Hold the world up to my face
Nothing said, all implied
But its so certain all the same
Wanna be somewhere else
I stand alone, I step away
Stop and stare, look away
Forget yourself and look again


Hidden glass, weigh me down
I tread the same old paths again
Open up, find the park
Finish up and walk away
Never end, leave behind
Come again and lose myself
Can't remember, to forget
What it is I thought I said

    General CommentThey've got what they reckon the meaning is on their website (geocities.com/…), but they do themsleves a disservice, and my belief is that it is a lot more subtle:

    The first verse seems to be talking about the writer's tendency to "hold the world up to (his) face". He knows that all it will lead to is a feeling of useless, impotent melancholia, yet cannot prevent himself from thinking the same thoughts over and over again.

    Hence, he utilises the only means he knows to drown his melancholia. But he recognises the ridiculous spiral that he is on, and the second verse seems to me be his personal lament at his state, and his inability to escape.
