Dear diary, what is wrong with me?
'Cause I'm fine between the lines
Be not afraid, help is on its way
A sentence suspended in air, way over there

    posted 04-23-2008 [1 of 2] I believe this song is about Francis Healy believing in bearing your soul on online journals, because 'I believe there's someone watching you & they are watching every single thing you say' aka Big Brother aka The Truman Show. So when you say you are suicidal on, blogs & social media, someone will try to help you by replying to your post, be it a few words of support or a whole essay. Sure throwing messages in the world wide web & infinite sea is like the 'message in a bottle' analogy metaphor, but with everyone on super fast cable/ASDL+2 internet, the task of keeping citizen lives & 'cry for attention' needs are made all that much more easier.

    posted 04-23-2008 [2 of 2] This song makes me cry, yes it is sad & mournful, but whenever there is darkness, there is a spark of light (pardon the trite cliché) with the lyric: 'be still don't stop until the end'...For who knows 'one day they will discover you' & get you a book deal. Sure your book will probably end up in the bargain bin, because there's just too much information & books already published...but at least you could possibly have something to show off to your inner circle of friends & family. Not saying it's a certainty, but 'in world of infinite possibility I hope one day you will you will see'."

    Haunting. Not the most uplifting Travis song, but it has its place.
