"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

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about losing his innocence, and the pain and confusion that come with maturity and first love. I believe he had a hard time facing the "adult world", and feels alone as he travels into maturity, down the flume. When he says "Only love is all maroon", I believe he is trying to convey the message that love scarred him, and he is creating a powerful image of the pain that has come with heartbreak. The maroon being the blood, and gluey feathers adding to the image of a hurt loon. I believe the picture he paints of the sky and the moon symbolizes how he felt about this girl who hurt him so, and he cannot quite get over her. This girl made him feel young again (sky is womb, and she is the moon). Now, he is lost again, facing the adult world, and as he tries to hold on to the broken love, it's hurting him in more ways than ever. Not only is he a heartbroken, wandering loon, he is rope burned, forever scarring him with the rouge.

    BUT that's just what I think. I'm such an amateur. ;D
