Okay, this is another random song that I picked from my mp3 player to be dissected in here. Unlike many other songs, the lyrics of this song can't be easily made out. It's like Viva La Vida. It's not only the words, but the story and culture that lie within this song. The point of view. The perspective. A lot of things that seem strange to me. Or else, I am simply an idiot. Let's hope that that's not true.

Anyway the title of the said song is A Comet Appears by The Shins. I first listened to this song, well, a fragment of it, in one of the American TV shows called Chuck. It was featured in a scene in which Sarah walked and sat next to Chuck who was sitting facing the sunrise on a beach, and told him to trust her. I am positive that that scene is the first episode, when Chuck learns that his life is never going to be the same ever again.
I am still trying to figure out the meaning of this song. Like I said, it's beyond dictionary-flipping. With that said, I had to copy the lyrics from a website. SongMeaning. I think in this website people will pool their knowledge and opinions about songs and discuss. Interpretation can be wildly subjective and inconsistent, so perhaps if you help each other, we could all then reach to a single conclusion at the end about the meaning of the songs. Even though we could just ask the writers/composers to explain. Can we do that?
A Comet Appears Lyrics
One hand on this wily comet,
They shone a chlorine light on,
Close your eyes to corral a virtue,
We can blow on our thumbs and posture,
Still to come,
With burnt sage and a forest of bygones,
But with each turn,
And still to come,
And listen to the song here:
What do you think? I hope you like it too. This song is one of the sort that makes me think about what kind of life that I am living right now and the mistakes I've made and keep making. When the song plays I would ponder about a lot of things, particularly about someone that I really care about. That has nothing to do with the lyrics does it? Anyway...
Hope you enjoyed it. =)
