I took what I wanted, but I can't have what I want
Balled up or sprawled out, flame on the seat of the couch
Seemingly intangible, I cup it, rekindle it, and ward the wind
We clicked and I clicked
I pointed,squinted, and pulled
And I can never take it back
I live in this heat, I freeze in its wrath
I can't win

    General CommentThis song has crazy lyrics no doubt. It's got to be highly metaphorical, and I can't quite figure out what it means. The "flame" on the couch represents something, maybe a passion that he brings back to life (rekindles) and protects (wards the wind). But then the last part sounds like he murders someone he likes. First they "clicked" meaning they get along great? Then he "clicked" the trigger of the gun, "pointed, squinted, and pulled". Then he's forever punished for this action. That's just my interpretation, whatever it means, awesome song, Movielife rocks.

    General CommentAlso, I can't decipher the title or how it would relate to this song. I know that "valens" comes from the Latin word that means strength or power (where we get the word "valient" and others) and it was also the name of a Roman emperor. So basically means something about power?
