The color of the sky as far as I can see is gull gray
I lift my head from the pillow and then fall again
I get a shiver in my bones just thinking about the weather
A quiver in my lip as if I might cry

    One of those seemingly chirpy songs that's utterly harrowing beneath the surface. A couple of lines still floor me. It's ridiculous how underrated Natalie Merchant is as a lyricist. She's one of the very best. I don't think there's another song that captures the sheer lethargy of depression as well as this. "Well by the force of will my lungs are filled and so I breathe / Lately it seems this big bed is where I never leave... it is such a long time since my better days."

    so, this song is supposedly about depression? i suppose it could be... i never thought of it that way. But after living in Chicago for a few years, i can relate to the not wanting to get out & do anything part... heck, even Texas heat will do that to you. You get cabin fever - that in itself can make anyone feel depressed, esp. when it's 20 degrees out & there's too much snow on the ground! So i think it's a little bit of both.
