Re: [TM] Lyrics for Chains Changed

Couldn't help it - had to submit my own interpretations, as in a few parts I
had quite different ideas. Well, you did say "correct me", Guy! ;>

FINISHED

With a loud noise
Everything breaks, 
Everything falls
Rips open, leaves a hole

Follow the black moon in
Follow the flashing gates
Alone at last....

Bury it inside, bury it
Bury it inside, bury it...
Come home...

His wife died, saw her face
Revealed, refused,
Coming home
Kept it outside, 
Laughed it goodbye

He wants tears, he cries
Turning it out blind
Leaving home

Goodbye
He ?
Cannot say goodbye
Finished

Hope this dog dont spin me around again
Your face in paragraphs,
Caught in a game of hope
A year, found another year
A year, found another year
when we sit at a table
There's fire between the guests
When your hands dont touch
There's sand in your place

And fire under your nail
Nobody knew, so nobody cared
Nobody knows...

REEL

I dont want this
I wanted you to reel
Inside this dream 
There's something left of our world
I hold it
Know what danger is?
Come in dangerous...

Make these people go away
Their coats are on my bed
And they're hanging hard, 
Talking about Jesus babies
I lose it
Know what danger is? 
Cos I'm in danger

You live on one word, one word
Whats the matter with you?
You get excited to go

I wanted this
I wanted you to reel around the room
The room is what is left of our world
I love you

Know what danger is
Can be dangers eyes

I'm so human
My words
Reel around it

You can't love anything
As much as when it's dying in your head
You're always dead in mine
I'm ? round the room
You keep your word you tear it
Tell it

SNAILHEAD

Is it enough to grow old?
Is there enough to go around?
To have a box in my snailhead?
I dont know...

Is there enough to grow old?
Is it enough to have a box?
In my snailhead
I dont know
What are you do?

(rpt)

And a diamond growing old
Under the ocean that's as black
As where you came from, black as rocks
As the box inside your head
What did they do, where is the ocean so black?
Don't say the circle's broken
And the diamond smoke

What did they do, where can they run, 
What did they break the fucking spiral was a circle
We are gone what did they do?
What will we do?
What can I do?
What have you done?

Spot on the sun
Where have you gone?
What have I done?

Diamonds, rocks as black as box and smoke
The spiral was a circle
And I was broken box inside the ocean
What did they do?
What will we do?
What can I do?
WHAT HAVE I DONE??


CRY BABY CRY

I wanna cry
On a roof
I - the third time
You will lose

He moved me 
And the chains changed
I take a nervous face
Month after month after more
Mouth after mouth after her

I said a nightmare
Complete with barking dogs and coke machines
Keep feeling like a baby chicken
Keep touching life's basement

"I'm obvioulsy confused," I said, 
"I'm more more worried for you than for me"
I yell

Cry baby cry 
Cry fight it
I'm not ever getting out
I'm always getting sicker

You're the person that took me
I found last September in a notebook
It was too much for the book to hold
That's how come I wore raincoats

I said first a suicide without a note
And now a note without a suicide
First a look without a note
And now a note without a suicide

She said "maybe death is my answer,
But love is the answer of life"

He moved me and the chains changed
I take a nervous face
Month after month after more
Mouth after mouth after her

I said a nightmare
Complete with barking dogs and coke machines
Keep feeling like a baby chicken
Keep touching life's basement

Cry baby cry cry
I fight it
Im not ever getting out
I'm always getting sicker, sicker

I found last September in a notebook
It was too much for the book to hold
I lean on some

She said "first a suicide without a note
And now a note without a suicide."
I said "maybe death is my answer, 
But love is the answer of life."

An interesting PS - Kristin seems obsessed with the idea of weather
protection in relation to distress and suicide; the reference to waering
raincoats in "Cry baby Cry" reminds me of the line "I need an umbrella/If
I'm gonna slit my wrists" in "Mania"....
