"Lamentation" as written by and Leah G./marlette Andreone....
Oh God we're here
And goodbye chokes on my tears
While your exit seems so effortless
So mean, you don't fool me
When the morning wakes you'll grab for me
But the plane took me away
Are you scared of what you'll see
Do they mean more than me
Trying to try
Trying to give you all your lines
Trying to walk away without a move
Trying to catch your eyes

So they fall down
Out of reach out of sight
Are you scared of what you'll see
Are you scared of me
Immersed in love's encounter
The heavens merge with hell
My arms release my body
Your arms hold what I held
Finally I know you'll take me
Finally I know you fell
I climb into your body
Climb into my own cell
Don't turn the lights on
Don't turn the lights on

What's on your mind tonight
Don't think too much you'll go blind
Make it easy find a beast in me
Now I'm not your type
And I'll fly solo into my loner love
While you walk and play it safe
Aren't you scared I'll leave
Do they mean more than me

    General CommentI completely agree that this song is incredibly written & performed. It's hauntingly beautiful.

    I think that she is not only talking about the general ups and downs of a relationship, but also feeling self conscious & unsure about losing your virginity.

    "I climb INTO your body"
    abstract but easy to interpret way of hinting towards sex
    "Don't turn the lights on"
    She doesn't want him to see her because she is self conscious
    "Do they mean more than me"
    The "they" is the guys friends. The girl is afraid that he is using her for sex to impress his friends - a way of saying "is what they think of you more important than how I feel"

    It's kind of an abstract way to think about it, but when you listen to the song it does fit.
