"Flume" as written by and Justin Deyarmond Edison Vernon....
I am my mother's only one
It's enough

I wear my garment so it shows
Now you know

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she's the moon

I am my mother on the wall, with us all
I move in water, shore to shore;
Nothing's more

Only love is all maroon
Lapping lakes like leary loons
Leaving rope burns
Reddish rouge

Only love is all maroon
Gluey feathers on a flume
Sky is womb and she's the moon

    General Commentits not just about a break up with his girlfriend (who, for the record, wasn't called Emma). the whole album is a cathartic response to the breakup of justin vernons previous bands and previous girlfriends. its not about one specific moment or relationship, more about the false hope that comes with each new one.
    having become overwhelmed he went into the cabin to get away from having to start something new, just concentrate on day to day living. the record is him putting everything that happened up until then into perspective.
