Well I lost some standing still
Talked it up and down the night
Drinking less from floating I don't care
Let's go anywhere
Preciously I don't whisper right
I don't miss that night after all
So it's possible I am the ghost of this
We are the barely slighted
Real on time lay rest the sugar
Lay rest the holiday
Lay rest the parasol
Would I care to take the hills
Shape the water really have some
Let's have them tell us all
It's a chance I wouldn't take
Please stay light
Turn around just remember
Lay rest the sugar lay rest the holiday
Lay rest the parasol
As a calling so amaze me
So it leaves me every day
Well I never be the same
But I'm yours today
Real on time real on time
Lay rest the sugar lay rest the holiday
Lay rest the parasol
Well I lost some yeah

    I can't believe no one has commented on this beautiful piece by the Sea And Cake. What I think the song means is that the lead singer is basically expressing a failed relationship with somebody, wherein they used to Walk down rainy streets together with the Parasol, and when the relationship comes to an end the lead singer is expressing how he feels like a "Ghost of this" He feels kind of bad for breaking it off with the girl, and in the end he has come to terms with his lost relationship as he says "Well I lost some.... yeah" This means he is now at peace.

    The opening guitar part sounds quite similar to the guitar part for Modest Mouse's 'Trailer Trash'. Considering the album 'Nassau' was released in 1995, two years prior to the release of 'The Lonesome Crowded West', I wouldn't be surprised if Isaac Brock was inspired by this track. Pitchfork Media has it listed as one of the 500 best songs in the genre of either "indie rock, hip-hop, electronic, pop, metal, and experimental underground." of the last 30+ years.

    This is one of the best songs I have EVER heard. I think it's about drinking and fucking up.
