Well I know it's just a spring haze
But I don't much like the look of it
And if omens are a god send
Like men breezing in
Certain these clouds go somewhere
Billowing outto somewhere
A single engine Cessna
You say we'll never make it there
All we do is circle it
Uh oh. Let go. Off on my way
Unsee this eternal wanting.
Let go
Way to go
So I get creamed
Waiting on Sunday to drown
Waiting on Sunday to drown
And I know it's just a spring haze
But I don't much like the look of it
But all we do is circle it
And I found out where my edge is
Ad it bleeds into where you resist
And my only way out
Is to go so far in
Billowing out to somewhere
Billowing out luna riviera
Waiting on Sunday to land
Waitng on Sunday to drown
Why, does, it, always end up like this
Waiting on Sunday
So I get creamed
Waiting for Sunday to drown

    General Commentto me this song communicates how it feels to be suffocated by your own confusion and current of emotion. you don't know where you're going with it, if you're even going anywhere, or just circling the indistinct object of your confusion. the feeling seems too big to not lead to anywhere--hence the line, "certain these clouds go somewhere." the song portrays an unhealthy but addictive emotion of uncertainty and inexplicable passion. and it seems like any day it will be the end of you (in whichever way you choose to interpret that.) it could be about the unexpressed connection you feel to another person who does not recognize it ("and it bleeds into where you resist"), one of the most intense and heartrending experiences possible. and the only way to ever overcome this unnameable mass of emotion and passion is to dive deep into it, to show that not only are you unafraid to surround yourself with it, but that you are brave enough to immerse yourself in it with the notion that you may very well drown if you breathe in too deeply.

    My OpinionPerfection. So subtle and intense. Probably my favourite one from Venus and totally underrated. One of the most beautiful Tori lyrics and amazing melody. Stunningly great.

    General CommentI was always under the impression that this song was about Robert Kennedy's plane crash.

    Tori has always had an interest in the Kennedys, Jackie especially, and this song seems to pretty closely follow the events and conditions that led to Robert Kemnedy's tragic plane crash into the Atlantic.

    He was flying a single engine Cessna, which is explicitly mentioned in the song. All major authorities agree that the extremely heavy "haze" from that evening made visibility nearly impossible, and most likely directly caused the crash.

    The plane went down very late on a Saturday night, hence Tori's speculation that they were lost in the clouds, and "circling," "waiting for Sunday to land." She's imagining that maybe if they'd made it til Sunday morning's light they could have beeb able to see through the haze, and might have been as to land safely.

    But unfortunately they could only have just made it into the earliest hour of Sunday, darkness still shrouding the landscape, and because of that they were instead "waiting on Sunday to drown."

    General CommentI always heard "Someday". Waiting for "someday" to land, end, drown. Stop circling in the clouds and land to begin.

    General CommentAs most Tori followers, I face a darkness in my life that Tori expresses. I do very well in school, almost with no difficulty, but before each week, I am faced with crippling anxiety, just wondering if I will be able to get through my busy week at all. When I think logically, I know that I will pull through and do well like I do every week without difficulty. So I try to tell myself not to listen to my anxiety. But it's there. It's as if Sunday is the worst day of the week. The anxiety that accumulates in that day outweighs the actual events I am dreading on the weekdays. So even though, every Sunday, I know it is just a "spring haze," I spend my time waiting , waiting , ... "waiting for Sunday to drown."

    General CommentIt,to me, sounds like its basis is unrequited love. Becoming so emotionally attached to another person who does not reciprocate causes for self examination and transformation. Being unsure of your future and looking into the past. Being in the present it feeling daunting. Realizing that self-preservation is top priority in the sense of loving one's self enough to realize that you must go- flung out into the sky like billowing clouds and just hoping that you and they end up someone where meaningful and balanced.
