Winter taking days.
Nights filled with longer hours

Winter solstice
passing by us
temperatures dropping
try us
With colder feelings
Black ice and hidden lusts
White sheets of snow concealing
Gloves on hands, with warmer thoughts
With plastic sleds cracking the newly [chouse/inaudible]
Huddling against the walls
Shrinking college trends, with the days living faster now
We cast our make pretend
Extra heat amends
A rising constant power
Darkness taking days

Nights filled with longer hours

Gotta jagged gorgeous winter from a summer's thread
All the lies you told about me they were totally totally totally true
Thinking through the noise you go back to bed
With your tinker tinker torch gotta think it think it think it through

Drag it out

    ...I think this song is about how winter reflects relationships. Both good and bad.

    Firstly, I agree with JackFrost's interpretation

    To Syoaran,

    Maybe "shrinking college trends, with days living faster now" relates how there used to be so many things to do back in college, but now everyone's busy and doesn't really have as much time as they used to. Trends shrink, and people confine themselves to jobs.. sometimes people don't really take the time to savor the moments around them. Time flies really fast when you don't do much with it.. before you know it, a long time's already past and you've fallen out of touch. I think this song's about cherishing the few moments you do have, hence the hours feeling longer than they actually are.

    I respectfully disagree with Orange Morendo--I don't think that anything it wrong. I think that they're looking at all features that are normally associated as negatives as winter as positives. The cold is an excuse to huddle together and the increased darkness just means that the nights they spend together last that much longer. I may be reading this wrong, but I think basically things are romantically heating up between them as it get colder, hence the irony of "try us with colder feelings" leading into hidden lusts.

    My Opinion

    Can't believe this song only has one (two) comment(s). It's so amazing. I don't like any of their other songs but this one is just amazing.

    I'm not sure what the meaning of this song is. The weather seems to be reflecting the mood, or relationship, between two people. Something is wrong is all I can determine for sure. The days seem more like extended nights. Their thoughts are warm so I guess they're thinking about the problem a lot. I just happened across this song on myspace. It is glorious! Guy before me...their other songs are the shit. This band is solid.

    The whole nights filled with longer hours and winter deal...

    Haven't yall noticed that our days darken quicker during the winter? I think yall are trying too hard.

    Like usually the sun sets at around 8:00 PM in Eastern NC during summer, but during the winter it gets dark as night at 5:00 PM :)

    i think its about a relationship. this song uses alot of symbolism. if it was just about winter the ending part wouldnt fit in (Gotta jagged gorgeous winter from a summer's thread/All the lies you told about me they were totally totally totally true/Thinking through the noise you go back to bed/With your tinker tinker torch gotta think it think it think it through) i mean seriously it how do lies fit in with winter?? im absolutly sure its about a relationship.

    Correction. It should read:

    "Thinking through the the noise you go back to bed. With your tinker , tinker toys, gotta think it, think it , think it through"
