The Propagation of Light (Through the Ether of Emotion)

lyrics

(Verse One)

Waves pass through the water
While sound glides through air.
But light through the ether
Is how it gets from here to there.

They say the ether is made of
Something beyond a girl.
But what a surprise to find
It's actually made up of the way I feel.

(Verse Two)

Good days are when I laugh
And the light travels fast.
The ether is thin then
And allows the light to thunder past.

But lately the billowing sadness
That blackens my heart
Slows it all down and then
It makes the light, it makes the light go dark.

(Chorus)

Speed of thought
Speed of fright
Speed of nothing
The speed of constant…

Light got caught speeding
Drop its phase
Drop its physics now
Just like her lower day.

Slow the flash
Slow the beam
Slow the photon
The slowing of the…

Stream got caught slowing
It's alright
It's a universe
Just like her lower nights.

(Verse Three)

Light passes through the ether
As my emotions allow.
And now that the people know
They cheer me up by sending flowers.

But these days the torrents of sadness
That blacken my heart
Slow it all down and then
It makes the light, it makes the light go dark.

(Chorus)

Speed of thought
Speed of fright
Speed of nothing
The speed of constant…

Light got caught speeding
Drop its phase
Drop its physics now
Just like her lower days.

Slow the flash
Slow the beam
Slow the photon
The slowing of the…

Stream got caught slowing
It's alright
It's a universe
Just like her lower nights.

Light's all bent
Light's all blamed
Light's all hammered
The blindness of the…

Shamed wish for lighting
But there's none.
Blessed darkness
For all the enlightened ones.
