Inga_123 Posted July 10, 2015 Report Share Posted July 10, 2015 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 shopAt the edge of a rainbow she thought the solutionSomeone painted on the wallHe writes in his daily journalEyes blindfolded, gathering piecesWith no direction to go anymoreWhen what's real becomes just another source of hurtAnd when meaning's gone from every wordSigns of life color your skinEmotions within show you the fast lane to your loveWhen love is a kiss of terminal bliss, designed to erase allSigns of life from the smile on your face to the lines you rephraseWill always guide you to your loveYour love is a kiss, my undying wish, designed to retrace the signs of lifeShe disguises herself in her New York fashionTo find her passion she lights her beaconHigh on coffee shop produceAnd he still picks his trains by chanceChooses opinions to fit his circumstanceTo find something he can useWhen you're free to choose, but the choices leave you lostWhen you feel you paid way more than it should costSigns of life...If you feel you've exhausted all your optionsAnd if you still find yourself with nothing to believe inFree your mind and you will seeSigns of life...
