I woke up in a Lego bedroom
Sleeping in my burlap sack
And all the mosquitos know I love you
Can I love me just as much
And I had breakfast with my shadow
We had quite the discussion
Can you fall in love with the things you only know the things you may never touch?

My day at work was just like it always is
The same old same old
I appreciate the opportunity over and over
But I had supper with my shadow
And we had quite the discussion
If I truly believe that things can change will I wake up to something different?

    General CommentI can't believe no-one has commented this song! It's so lovely.
    It gives off a feeling of loneliness, I think.

    General CommentI agree this song is awesome. totally about loneliness which makes sense, considering his son had died and he and his wife were separated at the time.

    General CommentThis song helps you feel sorry for yourself! You need to realize a human's loneliness occasionally a.k.a your own.

    General Commenti really like the questions that he poses when he's dining with his shadow...

    i was thinking about the one about change yesterday when i was riding home from work on the bus yesterday, and about to have dinner with my shadow. i decided to try to believe in change and today has been the most wonderful day. things DO feel different. i guess if you truly believe things can change, you will wake up and find something different.

    General CommentThis song definitely is about his loneliness. But it's a great song.

    Song MeaningAs said elsewhere, lead singer/songwriter Craig Minowa lost his 2-year old son previous to this song being written. In interviews he spoke on the time, saying he wrote about 100 songs whilst alone in his home, never leaving, trapped in his own grief.

    In the interview he said that the songs would mostly never see the light of day, that there was no way to produce them in any effective way. It seems this is one of them or, at least, of the same mind.

    This is a man alone having experiences in his own mind, wishing to %&$^ing God or anyone that if he just could wish hard enough that wish could become true again.

    I have a really hard time listening to Cloud Cult.....
