Back to summertime
It was almost 6 months to the day
Eyes clock to his hand
Liquid crystals on his watch catch rays of morning peeking through
Moving the pillows out of the way
Tries to make the time
Falls asleep with his watch on again
Cracked LCD

He has got last years summertime, the one she liked
On daylight saving time, hoping that the world catch up with him
Before he catches her
It happens once a year
She had better run
Was summertime for all
Alpine retreat off the A40
Cracked LCD

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the classic book "Momo", about how scary men steal the time of the world in the "Time Savings Bank." First off, and LCD is a sort of projection screen, and this song is about a very elaborate projection. It is kept up by a man persuing a woman. He times everything, and he never takes off his watch (even as he sleeps. Daylight savings time often is like a Time Savings Bank, you allocate time and end up with more or less. The man in the song is perhaps an hour early, trying to quickly court a girl. He times himself, everything is overplanned. He is a sinister character, and the alpine retreat is merely a facade where he keeps his new girlfriend. There, he controls on the seasons and all else, successfully controlling the world. Now it is winter, and the girl thinks she has it all: perfect guy, vacationing at an Alpine retreat. When she notices the retreat is a facade (the cracked LCD) she seeks to confront him in a fiery rage.
    There the song ends.
    Erm, that is all.
    CHOW! And don't touch the sushi.

    General Commenta lot of songs on light + magic are about illusions, youth and technology. I think this song relates to seventeen in a way, and Blue Jeans.
