"Brick Is Red" as written by and Charles/giles Stepney....
A fist is fast
And Jimmy's cast
Hang me

A white moon's hot
The other side's not
Hang me

It's not time for me to go
It's not time for me to go

My eyes have turned just the color of
Diamond
Just the color
The frayed color of ice
Diamond
Just the color
The frayed color of ice

    General Comment"A fish is fast
    And Jimmy's cast
    Hang me"

    Black Francis is the fish. He think's he is fast, but Jimmy's, or a generic name for a fisherman, "cast", or him throwing his line out, "hangs" or catches the narratorfish.

    "A white moon's hot
    The other side's not
    Hang me"

    Night fishing. The fish, in the final seconds of life, would see the moon for the first time. Maybe there is a deeper metaphor here. But, alas, he is still being "hung".

    It's not time for me for me to go
    It's not time for me for me to go

    The fish is panicking- it does not want to die. Obviously.

    My eyes have turned
    Just the color of diamond
    Just the color
    The frayed color of ice

    His eyes go white, or back in his head, and he dies.
