Come up crash with the muses fell, dust into ash
Come so close that I might see the light inside me, I might see
Let me hold you tight and arms tight and arm, you lost your chance
Come so close that I might see the flashing lights come down on me
With good luck I'll find the dark, stop me now, find me to your heart
Let me hold you tight like a ray of sunshine on a rainy day
See the lights, see the light come down on me
Searching like the fresh goes by small like wind refuse to die
Free me now so I can see and touch the wind below me
Does the wind blow like me? Does wind blow like me?

With good luck I find the dark, stop me now, find me to your heart
Let me hold you tight like a ray of sunshine on a rainy day
Let me hold you tight and arms tight and arms, you lost your chance
Come so close that I might see the crash of light come down on me
The crash of light come down on me, the crash of lights come down on me

Let me hold you tight and arms tight and arms, you lost your chance
Come so close that I might see, the crash of light come down on me
With spin luck I'll find the dark, stop me now, find me to your heart
So tonight the crash goes by small like wind and refuse to die
The crash of light come down on me
Come so close that I might see, see the light come down on me
I hold you tight like a ray of sunshine on a rainy day
Sunshine on a rainy day
Sunshine on a rainy day

Sunshine
Sunshine

    General CommentThis song is surreal, and actually rather creepy. While not necessarily a bad thing, I can see how it wouldn't suit a lot of tastes. I like it, albeit I could do without the long, drawn-out instrumental portion at the end. The guitar is actually a little too screechy. That part of the song could easily be cut in half or more...and if there was a version like that, I'd for sure download it to my iTunes. I do have this one. It runs 7 minutes and 14 seconds long!

    Anyway, onto the actual meaning: it's simple, isn't it? Hope Sandoval (lead singer) is simply speaking to someone she loves dearly; most likely her lover, as far as I can see. The only line that confuses me is, "You lost your chance." This, along with "Mary of Silence," appear to be streams of consciousness. I think that's all the lyrics are, hence why it sounds rambly to me. So it's rambling with an amazing beat and a drawn-out end. It grew on me, I must say - even though Hope talks and does not sing. It's a standout track on the album.

    General CommentUgh, I meant to compare STTIMS to Umbilical from Among My Swan, not to Mary of Silence. My mistake...

    General CommentThis is hands down the trippiest son I've ever heard. Up there with "Mary of Silence," "Umbilical," and "She Hangs Brightly," all by Mazzy Star. Oh, and "Glass + The Ghost Children," by Smashing Pumpkins, too.
