Really? From Menos on ... I've thought they were great. Quirky and full of double meanings. "Pachuca Sunrise" is damn good.
Midnight on a beach in the Mediterranean
And I miss you
Even here, taking it all in
The sand, silvered, carries the moon on its shoulders
Is it possible to put this night to tune, and move it to you?
Don't cry, I'll bring this home to you,
If I can make this night light enough to move
Don't cry, i'll bring this home to you
Cargo ships move by, tracing on the horizon line
There's a luster from the city lights on the waves that kiss our feet
And we're thinkin' of goin' in (thinkin' of goin' in),
The time's getting thin
"God awful" seems ridiculously over the top.
While they've consistently gotten better I've still never really like them at all. I'm probably just really horrible at analyzing the meanings to them, but I still feel like they're very empty and straightforward, which some people might like, but it doesn't strike me as anything very good.
