Butterflies in your hair,
Reminding us it is the time of year,
For cool shade and a spot in the sun
A cold struggle but the tiresome brawl is won,

How can you talk about suicide?
How could you possibly see it as right?
The long road through the deep ravine
Is leading out into the sunbeams

Ooh, let's go out tonight,
You don't need to be frightened
Don't say it isn't right,
Move on, jump in, fall out

The old smoke is coughed away,
A new breeze is blowing in our way,
Tough luck, you've got to change,
For such a long long fall you've been out of range,
Look in the mirror, there's still good news,
Don't need the makeup, you won't look used,
Can't wake the dead up, no what you need
Is just a bar and some debauchery.

Ooh, let's go out tonight,
You don't need to be frightened,
Don't say it isn't right,
Move on, jump in, fall out

I passed the church on my morning walk,
Crossed my mind, she's made of chalk,
More white than the holy saints,
But not quite immune to this black malaise
I grabbed a smile off the midday sky,
It got me thinking, you wanna know why,
It's all there and it's right outside,
Come on kick the door and go face the light

Oooh, let's go out tonight,
You don't need to be frightened,
Don't say it isn't right,
Move on, jump in, fall out

    General CommentI think this song is about moving on from relationships - making changes, starting afresh, readjusting. I think the She's Made of Chalk line refers to her instability - how she, and the relationship, can crumble away, and is fragile.

    Awesome song, anyway. I love the whole psychadelic vibe running through its entirety.

    General CommentI like Arky's interpretation, but I see this song as simply being his serenade towards a goth/emo/sad girl.
