I've seen your face before,
I've known you all my life.
And though it's new,
your image cuts me like a knife.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
The neon from your eyes is splashing into mine.
It's so familiar in a way I can't define.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
And though this is awful speedy,
We needn't bother sleeping,
All we might say is understood.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
The fierceness of my feelings,
Rocks me like a war.
It's good to know we won't be strangers anymore.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home.
And now I'm home, to stay.

    Dropping acid and looking inside yourself, seeing yourself the way you appear to the outside world for the first time (I've seen your face before, I've known you all my life / And though it's new, your image cuts like a knife) or coming to terms with your own personality. Very introspective, deep stuff for early psychadelia.

    i'm pretty sure that the lyrics to the bridge actually go like this:

    And though this is our first meeting We needn't bother speaking All we might say is understood

    My Interpretation

    its about dropping acid with a friend, saying about time dilation (although this is rather speedy), the connection you have with your friend is perfect that you dont have to speak to them to understand them (all we might say is understood), also talks about how your emotions rage (the fierceness of my feelings rocks me like a war) & the feeling of connection with your buddy after the trip (its good to know we wont be strangers anymore)

    I, Clementine Hall, wrote "Splash 1." Some of the lyrics attributed to it are comically incorrect. I've corrected two lines as follows: "Though this is our first meeting [not "though this is awful speedy"], we needn't bother speaking" [not bother "sleeping"] and "the fierceness of our feelings rocks me like a roar" [not "war"].

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
