I don't know what the lyric means but horses have long faces, having a long face means you are sad. creatures more than torn mourning our way home.

most of my interpretations were done in a joking matter. im sure some if not most of the lyrics we're talking about either were bullshit or were written without thought and just happened to be provoking

not sure if you know this but billiam confirmed it. it was written on an LSD trip or something similar

in which case, i guess you could say Mayonaise is a, uh... companion piece.

"panda show, trees and balloons"
everything is black and white, truth or lies.


I don't believe it either reprise. to me it'll always be 'must I lie' and 'planned a show'. I'm sure it's just billy trolling off some stupid thing a journalist once said to him... it's an old song, so why not get a kick out of it.

I used to always think it was "Oh, green eyes, to these must I lie?" Like, "how could I lie to those beautiful green eyes" or something.

I dunno, I thought the song was about having a schoolyard crush on someone, and her knowing you like her ("she knows, she knows, she knows"), but you still being too bashful to just admit it and claiming you don't when she asks you ("oh, green eyes, to these must I lie?")

But no I guess it was just random lysergic thoughts.

I thought it was "planned a show, too."

I don't have my Gish reissue anymore to look back into this stuff, but I remember virtually every track was just like "lol idk it's just something i wrote when i was tripping"

i used to get high and this song was the most mesmerizing
it was something about how she knows everything and the repetition of the line was a hypnotizing property where you could figure out what she knows by repeating it!

I wonder what spboi420 thought of the song!?

'Long Horses' refers to a fable where bigger, stronger, faster horses were being bred over a long period of time until eventually the horses couldn't support themselves and became horribly disfigured and died out.

I think I read that once.

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Widow wake my mind
Widow wake my mind
Widow wake my mind
Widow wake my mind

I'm looking for a love, a love that shines
That shines, a love that shines
To be mine, yes, all mine
A love that's mine

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Widow wake my mind
Widow wake my mind
Are you real this time?
Widow wake my mind

I'm looking for a love that I can find
To be mine, a love that's mine
It'll shine, in my mind
A love that shines

Accept the grace, the moment you are in
Accept the chase of where we must begin
'Cause when you crawl, you crawl into my heart
And when you fall, you fall right in my arms

We'll shine, yes, we'll shine
Our love will shine
You'll be mine, yes, all mine
Our love will shine

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

I'm looking for a love that I call mine

Shine, we'll shine
Widow wake my mind
Shine, we'll shine
Widow wake my mind
Shine, we'll shine
We'll shine...
Widow wake my mind
Shine, we'll shine
We'll shine...
Widow wake my mind
Shine, we'll shine
We'll shine...
Widow wake my mind
Shine, we'll shine
We'll shine...
Widow wake my mind
We'll shine

Get on board, this train ain't going to stop
Where I'm going, I don't know
You know, you know, you know
Wheels on fire, wings of decent desire
Punch your ticket, it's time to go

There's a force up around the bend
That drives this engine

Are you with us or against us?
Are you with us or against us tonight? It's alright
There's a matter of reckon in this fight, it's alright
Are you with us tonight?

It's alright, it's alright, it's alright
Are you with us tonight?

Soon we'll fly but on this eve we ride
A steel horse, tied to dirt, no words, no words, no words
No words will suffice against the sacrifice
For what is love, if not cause?

By misdeeds we'll scurry home
Dust in breath and bone

Are you with us or against us?
Are you with us or against us?
Are you with us? Are you with us?
Are you with us or against us tonight?

It's a matter of us or them
This fight, it's alright
Are you with us tonight?
It's alright, it's alright, it's alright

Are you with us? Are you with us?
Are you with us or against us tonight?
Are you with us or against us?
Are you with us or against us tonight?

Life on telephones/Love on open roads
Into great unknowns I stumble brightly
Indigo/breathless yet
I’ll link to your regret
Sunflowers as teachers pets/Bent from lightning
I’ll bet/I’ll bend for you
Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

Eastern days I’m unafraid/cause love to me is such a game
that I believe I can’t embrace/the dreams of lovers
Eastern days I’m unafraid/cause love to me is such a game
that I believe I can’t embrace/the dreams of lovers
I’ll bend for you
Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

Zen baby/lightning strikes
the same heart/but never twice
Zen baby/we’ve got to fight
what’s real and what becomes the night

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now
You can make this happen
You can make this happen all right now
