"Laid So Low (Tears Roll Down)" as written by Dave Bascombe and Roland Orzabal....
Chewed the bone down too low
Got fed on tea and sympathy
Blew the sail like the wind
I wish you were my enemy

I was humble for you
What a fool I've been
to have laid so low for so long
So long

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down

Drew the blade way too slow
Was shackled by your honesty
Made a mess, I guess I have should have known
That life was lust and liberty

Not a chance mutation
or the last temptation
Laid so low for so long
so low

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down

Into that void of silence
Where we cry without sound
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down
And where your mother's violence
Sent your soul underground
Where tears roll down
Where tears roll down

    General CommentAmazing song, No idea of the meaning or whats behind it. Would love to hear other people's thoughts.

    I can't make a very good interpretation, because I draw so much of it as parallels to my life.

    General CommentThe bulk of the song was written after the split with Curt, and Roland admits the phrase "so low" is an intentional play on words (solo), however the chorus itself is a leftover from the Seeds Of Love sessions (released in its own right as the song 'Tears Roll Down', which was the b-side to 'Sowing The Seeds Of Love').
