That's a frosty way to speak
To tell me how to live next to your potpourri
All this talking pulls my teeth
I believed in you so you'd believe in

Me, I cried out "God!"
You dared me in the dark
I felt a hush fall quietly from my spark
So now I hide in piles
Of princely orange peels
It feels the way you told me
How it'd always feel

Once I had a name to claim
I scraped on all the walls
Like an orthodox saint
I wish for the same old things
That turned me inside out,
Keeling in such pain
It's all a game

Me, I cried out "God!"
You dared me in the dark
I felt a hush fall quietly from my spark
So now I hide in piles
Of princely orange peels
It feels the way you told me
How it'd always feel

Never have I ever been
Clutching at your hair
To cure you of some sin
But that's the kind of state I'm in
Swimming in a pool of godly medicine

Come, come hear it calling me yelling like
If ever there was someone who could make things
Heavenly again
Feel alright!

Me, I cried out "God!"
You dared me in the dark
I felt a hush fall quietly from my spark
So now I hide in piles
Of princely orange peels
It feels the way you told me
How it'd always feel

Me, I cried out "God!"
You dared me in the dark
I felt a hush fall quietly from my spark
So now I hide in piles
Of princely orange peels
It feels the way you told me
How it'd always feel

    I think his girlfriend died and he feels betrayed by god for letting it happen and he lost part of himself thus he says "once i had a name to claim" and he's also doing things she'd do like "so now i hide in piles of princely orange peels" it doesn't really mean anything but reliving things. "come, come here it calling me yelling like" is like heaven and his girlfriend calling to him or his own plea for death. Or the whole time he could be talking about a daughter not a girlfriend which explains "never have i ever been clutching at your hair to cure you of some sin but that's the kind of state i'm in swimming in a pool of godly medicine" which is like a christening or baptising a child in holy water. But i could be wrong

    Good to listen to after school ends on friday. I feel as of it means that the person was tempted into something evil but fun. Kinda like being with a couple of rowdy friends. But then the "hiding in the orange peel" stuff resembles the guilt of hangover you feel after a tiring time with some good friends. Again, good to listen to with some friends in a car. Of course, with seatbelts on. Safety first.

    I think this song is about someone who feels guilty about something that happened in his life. He is obsessed with it and it sort of consumes him. While it has some religious references and undertones, i think it's more of a song about desperation and longing for something to make him feel better.
