"snowdrop" as written by Alan Griffiths and Roland Orzabal....
The writing on the wall changes everyday
Moving the lights about
We live by stealth alone
By simple truths - that's our philosophy
Oh what a perfect day - stretch it out forever
With flowers for your grave
A snowdrop for your soul
Down on your knees and pray
May lightning strike your bones
The devil makes his own pornography
Oh what a cross to bear
Freaking out completely
You locked yourself away
Now you're dead inside
You dug yourself a grave
Now you're dead inside
The promises you made
Were all dead inside
The calm before the storm
The bitter taste of mediocrity
Turning you inside out
I'm waiting in the wings
No news of joy - just more hypocrisy
Oh what a strange affair
We belong together
You locked yourself away
Now you're dead inside
You dug yourself a grave
Now you're dead inside
The promises you made
Were all dead inside
You locked yourself away
Now you're dead inside
You dug yourself a grave
Now you're dead inside
The promises you made
Were all dead inside
You made your bed
Now lie in it - dead inside

    My InterpretationThis album came out in 2001 but I only discovered this guy and bought this album recently. The sound is very well balanced and high quality sounding. This is my favorite off the album, Hey Andy! being my close second. Frankly the mood and lyrics sound kinda similar to Hey Andy! even though the beats certainly sound very different.
    All this guy's lyrics seem to be almost purposely vague, but here's my interpretation of this one-- it's from the point of view of a gay guy, to his lover who is breaking up with him and going into the closet due to pressure from his homophobic religious community. The speaker is telling this guy that doing this is actually counter-productive to his soul's salvation.
