"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 CommentI am my mother's only one
    It's enough

    - he's saying this because he was abandoned/betrayed by people close to him

    I wear my garment so it shows
    Now you know

    - he's naked and vulnerable. now you know what it looks like to see him without his masks.

    Only love is all maroon

    - maroon is the color of dried blood. not only does love hurt, but it doesn't quite look as glorious after it's done with you.

    Gluey feathers on a flume

    - pieces of himself left behind as he parted ways...

    Sky is womb and she's the moon

    - womb is new birth. he's journeying down the flume. moon- could be guidance. he's still attached to whatever he left behind.

    I am my mother on the wall, with us all
    '
    - mother on the wall is a photograph of someone who passed away. she is not "with us all". neither is he.

    I move in water, shore to shore;
    Nothing's more

    - again, he is wandering down the river/stream..

    Lapping lakes like leary loons

    - feeling so alone it's driving him mad. same idea implied with the moon.

    Leaving rope burns
    Reddish rouge

    - rope burns don't happen unless he tried to hold on... he did. it hurt. he had to let go. now he's wounded reddish rouge.


    that's how I understand it. - Stefan
