    General CommentNow it's your turn to see me rise,
    You burned my wings, but watch me fly.

    Great song. Very uplifting, like a Seagull might, I guess.

    General CommentWell, having listened the hell out of Vapour Trail and Taste off of Nowhere, I guess this is my new favourite song.

    Very beautiful lyrics. I'd guess that it's about being cheated on, and ending a relationship because of it - the first verse describes how crestfallen the narrator is feeling at the point of revelation, and how transcendental the partnership had been before that.

    The second seems to describe the unspoken feeling that all is not well - no words are needed, or even adeguate to express the emotion felt. Finally the narrator describes how, through his partners action, he has been able to escape into honesty. The final two lines describe the narrator now free of this painful relationship, now happy and free.

    The whole seagull thing is of course a reference to freedom. I always thought that they were the most free of birds - gliding atop the ocean, free, free of predators (as far as i know - ???) and joyous. Pretty nice.

    Ah well, I always miss the mark by just a little on meanings, but I think I understand this song. The music seems to go wonderfully with the lyrical theme, right?
