...and what it means to you
 

I remember
The day we pushed your piano
Out into the garden
Making tracks across the lawn

With tambourines and thunder
We climbed inside the limbs
Laughing down the rain
Swallow in the storm

Sometimes I
I feel like a fist
Sometimes I am
The colour of air
Sometimes it's only afterwards
I find that I'm not there

In the dream dusk
We walked beside the lake
We watched the sky move sideways
And heard the evening break

Sometimes I
I feel like a fist
Sometimes I am
The colour of air
Sometimes it's only afterwards
I find that I'm not there

 
 
To me, this reads like a love letter, and exercise in the weirdest form possible: pushing a piano.
I particularly enjoy the rhyme of "air" and "there". Air is Ethereal while there is straight to the point. 
 
Reminds me of being in a landscape garden and losing track of time in August and when my parents almost called the police to look for me.

Blackest Eyes:

A mother sings a lullaby to a child
Sometime in the future the boy goes wild
And all his nerves are feeling some kind of energy

A walk in the woods and I will try
Something under the trees that made you cry
It's so erotic when your make up runs

I got wiring loose inside my head
I got books that I never ever read
I got secrets in my garden shed
I got a scar where all my urges bled

I got people underneath my bed
I got a place where all my dreams are dead
Swim with me into your blackest eyes

A few minutes with me inside my van
Should be so beautiful if we can
I'm feeling something taking over me

It's just so sinister.
You left a note in your perfect script
Stay as long as you like
I haven't left your bed since

Swilson's lyrics can be very hit or miss for me, but when he is good - damn he is good.

In my opinion at least. 
Crushed like a rose in the riverflow.

Waiting Phase One

Waiting to be born again
Waiting for the saddest kind of pain
Waiting for the day
When I will crawl away
Nothing is what I feel
Waiting for the drugs to make it real
Waiting to be disciplined
Aching for your nails across my skin

"The wind is slowly tearing her apart"

"Sad Rain" ANEKDOTEN

I got a place where all my dreams are dead
Swim with me into your blackest eyes


He captured and collected things
And he put them in a shed
He raised a proper family
So he could tie them to a bed

The creator had a mastertape
But he left it in a cab
I stared into the void tonight
The best dream I ever had

He worked himself into the ground
And drove a spike into his head
A voice said "Are you happy now?"
Your sordid home is running red

Pills and chloroform
All the pages torn

There is no dark side in the moon, really... Matter of fact, it's all dark...

White wall, I had to paint a door
I always find that I've been through it before
Close it up and throw away the key
Break the code, how happy I could be
