Lyrics and Meaning


Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I call my name
Looking for what I remember
My name I know
I love going to the movies
Verse 2
I turn and see my childhood home
On this new beach
Where strange birds fly
These birds swoop right over
Looking out for me
Verse 3
"Who is she?"
"Where does she come from?"
The building disappears
Verse 4
"Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?"
Verse 5
The sun comes up
Slower than I remember
A man I know
He lights his cigarette with nothing
Not a smile or memory
His shadow still wet as my gash against the rock
Sharp and high on the Balearic promontory
I see his ship go
What stings me?
These birds can't stop the waves
Verse 6
"Oh she's been marooned
Can anybody help her?"
Verse 7
The birds can sing a song
He covered me in cactus
I don't remember much but
Good riddance he is gone
He put me ashore
At 4 am
The man is gone
Good riddance he is gone
His billcaught their eyes
Blood is on his bill
His bill caught my neck
How unnaturally I gaze
I don't remember much but
He turned me around
My mouth quivered
Perpetually alarmed
I gaze at nothing
My emerald is gone
He lifts my hand
I hear him
