Noah And The Whale - Jocasta Lyrics




When the baby's born
Oh let's turn it to the snow
So that ice will surely grow
Over weak and brittle bones
Oh let's leave it to the wolves
So their teeth turn it to food
Oh its flesh keeps them alive
Oh its death helps life survive
Oh the world can be kind in its own way

Oh well your future's a machine
With the mechanics of a dream
And it's your mind that spins the wheel
And your heart that makes you feel
All the guilt for all your sins
Oh and as that wheel spins
Oh well it plays as they believed
And for your husband you have grieved

Oh the world
Still deceives you as it turns
And in my lucid moments I could see
Oh that the heart may be
The weakest part of me

Oh and the moon controls
The movements of the tide
Oh but it has no weight on the movements of my mind

But if you turn your hands to flames
Oh the light will burn the same
Whether you just pass it through
Or if it's what you meant to do
And your sense of culpability
Is from the guides that you perceived
Their constant lie that you believe
Will show you grace
Oh when you turn to a ghost
Oh but now the love you found
Is raising you from muddy ground
And oh the death will let you down
'Cause your curse will still go on the same

    What’s the meaning of the lyrics?

    Kelly

    Oedipus the king by Sophocles is a play that the main character Jocasta in short married her son Oedipus who unknowingly (killed his own dad ) Laius

    When the baby's born
    Oh, let's turn it to the snow
    So that ice will surely grow
    Over weak and brittle bones
    Oh, let's leave it to the wolves
    So their teeth turn it to food
    Oh, its flesh keeps them alive
    Oh, its death helps life survive
    Oh, the world can be kind in its own way
    Oh well, your future's a machine
    With the mechanics of a dream
    And it's your mind that spins the wheel
    And your heart that makes you feel
    All the guilt for all your sins
    Oh, as that wheel spins
    Oh well, it plays as they believed
    And for your husband you have grieved
    Oh, the world still deceives you as it turns
    And in my lucid moments I could see
    Oh, that the heart may be the weakest part of me
    Oh, and the moon controls the movements of the tide
    Oh, but…
    But if you turn your hands to flames
    Oh, the light will burn the same
    Whether you just pass it through
    Or if it's what you meant to do
    And your sense of comparability
    Is from the Gods that you perceive
    Their constant lies that you believe
    Will show you grace
    Oh, when you turn to a ghost
    Oh, but now the love you found
    Just lays you down on the muddy ground
    And oh, the death will let you down
    'Cause your verse will still go on the same
