"Two Way Diamond I" as written by and Andrew Kenny....
Bright first star
High as we are
We whisper while just beyond these walls
The engines roar
Gone five days
Then home by eight,
Ten mountain. The steel bird touches down
Its wings to wait

    General Commentthis song is the most sweet and candied euphemism for disappointment.

    General CommentSlinkstersars, that's really perceptive. I like your assessment of the song.

    Two Way Diamond hits me as being a very claustrophobic song. It's desolate, and it's brooding.

    What with the talk of "these walls" and describing the events just outside them (the star, the engine), and the routine of daily life, the song seems as though it's about being caught in a loop, a sort of a prison. It seems that there's a yearning to break free of it, however, as the last minute of part I and the entirety of part II are ponderous and much more ebullient than the first three minutes of part I.

    At least that's my take on it.

    General Commenti think its about being on the road, particularly the 2nd verse. the part about the "steel bird" or airplane, might be about a long-distance relationship
