Springtime is over
Don't head for home
Creep up the ladder
And steal over stone

No time to forget this
World's in your eyes
Sway in the cloud blur
And light up the sky

Cast off the color
And tune in to black
The moon touches your shoulder
And brings the day back

    General CommentI think it's about after being in a good place or period in someone's life. And the situation is over and that person is gotta go through an approaching dark, or harsh, phase of some sort, as in a war or something in that order- that means a lot to the person as far as his ambition to step out of it winning, or simply to get it over with... It seems to me that the narrator is lecturing to himself and it appears that he's been in that situation once before. He is femiliar with it, though it is still hard. I believe that at the same time that it is supposedly realistic and depressing it's also very impowering. Like someone or something talking you through and preparing you. Calming you... I love it that it's written so poetic and deals with elements from space throughout the album. Though it might indicate of a person that rely on things to give him strength. It could be about having an addiction for something, and getting over it.
