Darlingside – The God of Loss Lyrics 5 years ago
Also (via the liner notes), "These lyrics were inspired by "The God of Small Things" which Auyon was forbidden to read as a child as part of his parents' efforts to preserve his innocence."

Darlingside – The God of Loss Lyrics 5 years ago
Via the band:

"In the book "The God of Small Things" by Arundhati Roy, the character Velutha is tangled in a web of familial, cultural, and romantic loyalties. The lyrics for "The God of Loss" were inspired by Velutha's attempts to preserve his humanity in the face of those competing forces."

Darlingside – In the Morning Lyrics 5 years ago
A fun note by the band about this song:

Written in Northampton, MA as the result of a lyrical brainstorming exercise, before the band had formed. In the end, Dave and Auyon convinced Don that being in a band would be pretty fun, and Don convinced Dave and Auyon that he was pretty weird.

Denison Witmer – Everything But Sleep Lyrics 9 years ago
In the song "Hold On" Denison makes a reference to Book of My Nights by Li-Young Lee. "Everything but sleep" is a line in the first poem from that book, so maybe that poem inspired him to write this song (or the title, at least).

A cover of a Sparklehorse song. Writing out the lyrics was a lot easier once I found that out. :)

Jaymay – You Are The Only One I Love Lyrics 10 years ago
Why would it have to be a break-up song? I think it could be interpreted as being about someone who died or maybe even someone who has to live far away for whatever reason. I definitely like your point about the children's voices though.

Butterfly Boucher – Keeping Warm Lyrics 10 years ago
I don't quite know how to explain why, but I think this song could be about being on anti-depressants.

Rilo Kiley – The Absence of God Lyrics 14 years ago
"And I'm not my body or how I choose to destroy it"

I think this could be a reference to abortion (as in the stance that the fetus is just another part of the woman's body and not a separate person).
