the lights distilled
as it goes hand to hand tonight
cause we were not supposed to be here
at all
is the world ashamed
the still comands
my body to remain
forever steeped in alcohol
and flames
forever i'm your shame
star wound
so look up
you're always lookin down
the time will show
the cracks i know
will lay my heart to waste
cause i know where you want to be
this is not that place
it goes on and on and on and on...
with a word
the world is moved from us
damaged deep inside
cause everything i gave to you
everything you hide
with a star the light
the heat your car
simply falls away
cause i know how you need to be
this is not that place
it goes on and on and on and on...
so look up

    General Commentgod, this is such a beautiful song. I'll listen to the album, then go back and listen to this six or seven times because the lyrics are just perfect, his voice is ethereal, etc. Frustrating as a hidden track, though - you've got to skip around to find it.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure this song is the reason my fast forward and rewind buttons are broken.... It was worth it though. Bought this CD knowing nothing about this band and started spreading it among the people I know and got Remy Zero at least 20 new fans. Love this CD. So glad I bought it.

    My InterpretationPicture, for a minute, a scene. Two lovers in a hot air balloon. Hand-in-hand. Watching the twinkling lights below and twinkling lights above.

    The world below. The world /sub/-balloon. Uninviting toward and ashamed of the lovers. The world of drinks and problems.

    Words of encouragement from one lover to the other, followed by the first’s lament. Finally, acknowledgement that the world below is not where the lovers should be.

    But the deeply damaged lovers continue to climb in their balloon until everything everything is gone. And they continue on.
