"Shade" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
Claims, they crawled from those clouds
And over mountains cried
Into the streams where they ran the length of
Past and time that called out
With their hands beside you
As all the people shouted
Up to the northern territories

My, they glowed like a bug
Burning at the ends
Of shade covered crowns
Whose only words were
Wicked mumbles that shake unstable
Manners brought these thoughts about you
Lights up like flies and ants that dip about
And aim to

Just swallow us up like them bread baked gums
Now I remain glowing at the ends
I remain glowing at the ends
It's because it's you they've become

Shade drifts around, southern where the sheets are
Growing ash and steeple factories
Old boy, you'll never know just what they think
It never finds you
Cheap work finding pockets
Only when we're aimed to

Just swallow us up like them bread baked gums
Now I remain glowing at the ends
I remain glowing at the ends
It's because it's you they've become

These lights were waves that spilled through my space, (In the plains.)
Where no one knows if they'll ever need again. (I want to.)
These lights were waves that spilled through my space, (In the plains.)
Where no one knows if they'll ever need again. (I want to.)
These lights were waves that spilled through my space, (In the plains.)
Where no one knows if they'll ever need again. (I want to.)
Come and get and take me home
These lights were waves that spilled through my space, (In the plains.)
Where no one knows if they'll ever need again. (I want to.)
Come and get and take me home
These lights were waves that spilled through my space, (In the plains.)
Where no one knows if they'll ever need again

    General CommentJust some minor corrections (removal of some unsung words, etc). Great job on getting the lyrics down. Couldn't figure out what they were singing ><

    Claims, they crawled from those clouds,
    over mountains cried
    into the streams where they ran the length of
    past and time that called out
    with their hands beside you as all the people shouted
    up to the "northern" territories
    My, they glowed like a bug burning at the ends of
    shade covered crowns
    whose only words were
    wicked mumbles shake unstable manners
    brought these thoughts about you
    lights up like flies and ants that dip about and aim to
    to swallow us up like the bread baked gums

    Now I remain glowing at the ends
    I remain glowing at the ends
    It's because it's you they've became

    Shade drifts around, southern where the sheets
    are growing ash and steeple factories
    old boy you'll never know just what they
    think, it never finds you
    cheap work finding pockets only when we're aimed to
    to swallow them up like the bread baked gums

    Now I remain glowing at the ends
    I remain glowing at the ends
    It's because it's you they've became

    These lights were waves that spilled through my space (in the plains)
    Where no one knows if they'll ever need again (I want to)
    These lights were waves that spilled through my space (in the plains)
    Where no one knows if they'll ever need again (I want to)
    (come and get and take me home)

    I can't begin to interpret this.
