Come to decide that the things that I tried
Were in my life just to get high on

When I sit alone
Come get a little known
But I need more than myself this time

Step from the road to the sea to the sky
And I do believe that we rely on

When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice

Hey oh listen what I say oh
I got your
Hey oh now listen what I say oh

When will I know that I really can't go
To the well once more time to decide on

When it's killing me
When will I really see
All that I need to look inside

Come to believe that I better not leave
Before I get my chance to ride

When it's killing me
What do I really need
All that I need to look inside

Hey oh listen what I say oh
Come back and hey oh
Hey oh look at what I say oh

The more I see the less I know
The more I like to let it go... hey oh

Woah oh

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided by a world so undecided
And there's no where to go

In between the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through a field where all my tracks will
Be concealed and there's no where to go

When to descend to amend for a friend
All the channels that have broken down

Now you bring it up
I'm gonna ring it up
Just to hear you sing it out

Step from the road to the sea to the sky
And I do believe what we rely on

When I lay it on
Come get to play it on
All my life to sacrifice

Hey oh listen what I say oh
I got your
Hey oh listen what I say oh

The more I see the less I know
The more I like to let it go... hey oh

Woah oh

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided by a world so undecided
And there's no where to go

In between the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through a field where all my tracks will
Be concealed and there's no where to go

I said hey
Hey yeah
Oh yeah

Tell my love now

Hey
Hey yeah
Oh yeah

Tell my love now

Deep beneath the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Privately divided by a world so undecided
And there's no where to go

In between the cover of another perfect wonder
Where it's so white as snow

Running through a field where all my tracks will
Be concealed and there's no where to go

I said hey
Oh yeah
Oh yeah

Tell my love now

Hey
Yeah yeah
Oh yeah

    Things that i tried = cocaine
    High (because of cocaine)
    Come get a little loan (for more cocaine)
    But i need more (cocaine) than myself this time.
    To the sea to the sky (like it feels when you do cocaine)
    We rely on (cocaine)
    Hey-oh = yay-oh = _cocaine_
    When it's killing me (because it's cocaine)
    Where it's so white as snow (because it's cocaine! )
    Privately divided (lines of cocaine)
    Tracks -- lines -- of cocaine
    All the channels that have broken down (because he does cocaine)

    You shouldn't cover for him in your idol worship; he was confident enough to write and sing the song, but not enough to tell you directly what it meant -- though, he didn't lie either. You cannot say he said i am wrong, because.. He didnt' say that.

    This pure brilliance, means to me, summer '11 "less than three". I went to see the rock gods at the end of june (the day before my fifteenth birthday) and i was devastated that they did not preform i think my most loved of all of their magnificent songs :(
    however, ill still treasure this greatest in my heart for all eternity :')

    The more i see the less i know
    the more i like to let it go

    I think that shows that running away from the world and everything by using drugs is just a way to cover youre own eyes with to not be able to see all that is bad

    The song "snow" tells about someone who comes into a point of confusion in his life. He can't tell the meaning of what he had done in his life, and he doesn't know how to manage his lile from now on. Thats why he feels so lost as a result of it, and the more he thinks with himself, the less he finds himself answers.

    snow means all his past deeds have been over now and they are now like how things get covered and forgotten beneath the snow. It's a metaphor for what his life has been turning out now.

    And yes ! it is a beautiful song.
