Hotelier, The - End Of Reel Lyrics




First breath following wakes of the
Palms pressed, brushed on my arm and then
Wave stretched sending me off to descend,
Leading me into the bend.
Keep pulsing my hand to the beat of you.

Shapeless hiss hanging over the
Mixes of midnight and twilight.
It passes, dims to make space and suspend
While she's singing her swan song again.
It got stuck in my head as the sound of you.

In the night, we will celebrate cyclical spin
As we ritually send off the fire at both ends
Yet I'm blanketed, wet with the thought in my head:
I don't know what I want, what I want's where I've been

The kind of thing that hangs inside a moment.
A kiss of good that's temperate and golden
That permeates the surface of the woven
And seeps into the piece of you inside of my head.

Goodness, present and hallowed
Is thanking walls of the shallow
Embankments for flowing in over the
Ranks of soldiering messes of
Dayglow blades scorched by hovering halos.
Washing away until I don't even cringe at the thought of you.

In the light of the day, stabilize and reset
And then burn in the image until I can't forget
And end ceaselessly speaking until nothing's unsaid.
I don't know what I want; what I want is where I've been.
In the night will rest you head into my hands
Will you disrupt this pattern from starting again?
If I ask you for nothing, will nothing there stand?
I don't know what I want; what I wants where I've been.
I don't know what I want; what I wants where I've been.
I don't know what I want; what I wants where I've been.
I don't know what I want; what I wants where I've been.

And oh, the resonant calm comes hard
And hums off the walls of the block uncarved.
It's new, but I don't know what to do
With the sight of you brimming.

    "and Oh, the resonant calm comes hard

    and hums off the walls of the block uncarved.

    It's new, but I don't know what to do

    with sight of you brimming."



    what does brimming mean here? i take it the album is supposed to be about rebirth after death of any situation. is it that he is over this person and he/she no longer affects him? The tears/feelings/thoughts? The music after this part is more cheerful too

    ParkwayDrive505

    I think you might be correct here. Brimming in the sense that the individual is full of emotion and from that point on they'll "carve the new block" of their life per say.

    i think its about relief. Someday even hardest and deepest feelings tend to go away and you leave it behind with the feel of deep calm and acceptance.

    Christian DiMare

    Henry M the way I interpret this song, Christian is saying he can't process the person he loves being happy. The whole song feels to me like being caught in like pattern of loving and hating the person he's with, where there are these beautiful poetic moment that make him fall back in love and he burns these moments into his mind, and there's the moments he cringes at his "other." It's gotten to the point where he's so unsure in love that he can't process the other person's feelings anymore because it's like he's asked for nothing from of the number of times he's asked and experienced the same cyclical patterns. That's just my interpretation.
