LYRICS


God rest his head Sunday afternoon, and
The wicked in me is surly the wicked in you
We pray to a ghost that we've never met
Time turns for a cure, from the scientists for

Madness, madness of the heart
but you knew it,
you knew it from the start

And Hawking will tell us no tall tales this spring
Our eyes hold the chaos that stared everything
Maybe it's faith, and the sadness takes hold
Sill stars through the window, will ever know this

Madness, madness of the heart
but you knew it, you knew it from the start
There's a madness, a madness of the heart
but you knew it, you knew it from the start

Stare a sleepy smile into a sunbeam
Cause there's nothing more than a daydream
Colored stained glass cathedral
Confines a past that wont let you go

God rest his head Sunday afternoon
And the wicked in me is surly coming through
I pray to a ghost that I've never met
Still searching for someway out of this mess

It's the heart
It's the heart
And there is a madness, a madness in the stars
But you knew it, you knew it from the start

Hmmmmmmmmm
Hmmmmmmmmm
Hmmmmmmmmm

Just as an update, I changed the name of this topic as the name of the song has changed from Waltz (2008-2010) to tall tales of Spring.

personally i thought it was "hark, he will tell us no tall tales of spring"

but hawking? like stephen hawking? that's interesting too, especially since v's talked about "time slipping and mind floating" as being a theme for the album. maybe she's been reading some physics-themed books lately.

(Coerced/ Colors) in glass cathedral

I think that should be "color stained glass cathedral".

I really like the interpretation as "Coerced in glass Cathedrals" because I feel that the word "coerced" is layered with so much hidden meaning. It adds a really great emotional undercurrent to the song that gives it real power--- especially how that verse goes right back into the "God rest his head" line.

Agreed, I hear the other more now that I listen, but I like coerced.

What "coerced" means?

Coerce - to cause to do through pressure or necessity, by physical, moral or intellectual means :"She forced him to take a job in the city"; "He squeezed her for information"

Sure thing.

"It's the heart
It's the heart
And there is a madness, a madness in the stars
But you knew it, you knew it from the start."

Makes me think of everything the celebrities (the stars, hmm?) are doing because it feels right to them. And that she's talking to herself, saying she knew about it from the start of her career.


But I'm one for the conspiracy theories, me.

I know. It's quite similar in a way to HAWBTW if we view it that way.

The more I listen to it the more I also hear "color stained glass" ... but I still really prefer coerced! haha...

To me all this talk of stars and science just has a very sci-fi feel to it. To me, asking the stars if they'll ever know this madness is like asking the universe about other intelligent life. And by declaring there's a madness in the stars, it just makes me feel like there's chaos everywhere. I like the feel of those lyrics.
