  1. hey you lovely people!

    i've been trying to find an interpretation of the song "signs of life" by poets of the fall but been without success so far. the lyrics itself is pretty easy, i'm just not quite sure which message it is carrying. can some of you smart folks help me out? i'd be very interested in hearing your opinion and interpretation of the song's meaning! :-)

    here's the lyrics, so you don't have to google it:

     

    She stands by the corner shop
    At the edge of a rainbow she thought the solution
    Someone painted on the wall
    He writes in his daily journal
    Eyes blindfolded, gathering pieces
    With no direction to go anymore

    When what's real becomes just another source of hurt
    And when meaning's gone from every word

    Signs of life color your skin
    Emotions within show you the fast lane to your love
    When love is a kiss of terminal bliss, designed to erase all
    Signs of life from the smile on your face to the lines you rephrase
    Will always guide you to your love
    Your love is a kiss, my undying wish, designed to retrace the signs of life

    She disguises herself in her New York fashion
    To find her passion she lights her beacon
    High on coffee shop produce
    And he still picks his trains by chance
    Chooses opinions to fit his circumstance
    To find something he can use

    When you're free to choose, but the choices leave you lost
    When you feel you paid way more than it should cost

    Signs of life...

    If you feel you've exhausted all your options
    And if you still find yourself with nothing to believe in
    Free your mind and you will see

    Signs of life...
