"Two Planets" as written by and Natasha Khan....
Show me moonlight on the sunrise
I've seen so many planets dancing
I've seen too many people hiding

Show me sunset and I won't forget
That I am one of two planets dancing
I am part of two planets dancing

Shallow men, sign your name on my sun
The song of Solomon died in a battleground
The song of Solomon died in love's battleground

I am far shattered by these sinning times
For all your suffering by night
?

Life is so much dark and light
Day can not exist without a night
And you should not separate from me
I have a heart that's full of life
To be shared on this night
Feel my hands, feel my life
For the sun and the stars
Of my mother and my sisters

I know where the form is changing
I know that the stars will fall on me

    General Commentthat's a decent interpretation.

    the more i listen to this song, the more i hear what i think it's about.

    i think this song is more of pearl and natasha battling it out for who will become the dominant personality. i think most of this song is pearl pleading with natasha to let her remain in existence. natasha knows pearl is a part of her being that is flashy, headstrong, alive, etc. but natasha also knows that is not truly who she wants to be. pearl is telling her "day cannot exist without a night," obviously stating that natasha may be day, but with day comes night, or pearl. they are intertwined.

    i listened to an interview on sirius radio when natasha did an acoustic session. she talked about how she was always connected with nature, and that pearl was brave (more of a nightlife femme fatal). the time came when she realized that natasha was who she was, and pearl was slowly subsiding.

    i think this song is definitely pearl's plea to remain alive and part of natasha's life. i think the last verse of the song is the very last night natasha lives through pearl. she's trying to fuse the two eternally, playing on the aspects of the female psyche being good-natured (natasha) and yet still vivacious (pearl) but the very last two lines are pearl's discovery that she is no longer meant to exist. "i know where the form is changing" she understands now that the transformation between her and natasha is never going to be the same and "i know that the stars will follow me" pearl is stating the natasha's identity (day) will remain with her but pearl's (night) will die with her as well.

    night no longer symbolizes pearl's awakening (describing the times when natasha would dress up as pearl in nyc with her ex-boyfriend) because it is leaving with her.

    i think this interpretation is pretty strong, as the big sleep could basically be pearl's final performance.
