random ramblings on new album...

well, i hereby decree "cockahoop" to be my official happymaking album. purely because it's optimistic in light of everything cerys went through after the band broke up. and also because i'm in a good mood at the moment ;)

and that's even in light of some of the lyrics, to weightless again, which aren't really that optimistic...

We stopped for coffee in the red-wood forest
Giant dripping leaves spoons of powdered cream

I wanted to kiss you but I wasn't sure how
Like those Indians lost in the rainforest

Forced to drag burning wood wherever they went
They had all forgotten how to light a fire

That's why people OD on pills
And jump from the Golden Gate Bridge
Anything to feel weightless again

Those poor lost Indians when the white men found them
Most died of TB the rest went insane
In our motel room you were drinking ice and gin
Reading Moby Dick on the other bed

Remember the first time we slept together
You said it felt like when you learn to float

That's why people OD on pills
And jump from the Golden Gate Bridge
Anything to feel weightless again.

although even that's semi-optimistic... and can anyone explain why it's reminding me of sunset? please? or is it nautica being a pain the eema as usual?
