Play Crack The Sky Lyrics


We sent out the SOS call.
It was a quarter past four in the morning when the storm broke our second anchor line.
Four months at sea, four months of calm seas only to be pounded in the shallows off the tip of Montauk Point.
They call them...

    The band that played Crack the Sky was Mylon Lefevre and Broken Heart.

    Didn't Jesse's father die in a shipwreck off Montauk Bay? I think he's taking his grief for his father and turning it into a metaphor for a failing relationship. Also, he quotes the Bible when he says "The tongue is a rudder..." that is from James. Almost every line in this song could be taken literally, as if written about the death of his father, or metaphorically, as if written about the relationship. "They call 'em rogues, they travel fast and alone..." perhaps a rogue wave was the cause of his father's shipwreck? "What they call 'love' is a risk; you'll always get hit out of nowhere by some wave and end up on your own..." <--- no Jesse's father didn't die in a shipwreck. I saw him at Bottletree in Birmingham and he was talking about his dad and how he inspired him when he wrote aloC acoC

    The title of this song is about the guys going to a show. They saw a member from and old band they used to listen to and he was with his new band. His image had changed since the days they listened to him. When one of them recognized him, he called out "Play Crack the Sky!" and this guy looked at him with the look of "here i am, in the middle of nowhere where nobody knows who I am except this kid who remembers me from this old crappy band I used to be in!"

    It is pulling from the Bible. "The tongue is a rudder..." refers to James 3:4-5. He is using a metaphor from the Bible to describe a real-life situation.

    Means:

    We need help
    It's four in the morning and the fight/argument broke out
    It was the second time
    Four months together that was nice and easygoing only to be ruined by something

    Yep the ship is definitely a metaphor for a relationship. It was good but it went bad. When it talks about how the tongue is a rudder is probably saying how important your words are so choose them well. It says the tongue is a rudder that steers the whole ship. That's said in the bible but not in the exact way. In another place in a song it says "I need you like water in my lungs." That sounds like he's saying he still wants her but it's hurting him.

    I think this is about a relationship that is going worng, no matter what they try. The voice is desperately trying to hold on to what they've had, but he can't "Need you like water in my lungs."
    Then when its like "Your tongue is a rudder..." and that bit its like saying that what ever happens it is down to what is being said.
    When it says "You know that you are not alone" I think he means that the gril knows that he will always be there for her.
    Basically I think Jesse is using a boat and a ship wreck as a metaphore for a relationship falling apart (the boat is the relationship)

    Could be wrong though, could be a load of bollocks that seems to fit!

    I would like yall's feedback but I think this song and the whole album Deja Entendu have a lot of allusion to Moby Dick, the book. The band talks a lot about the sea and I don't know let me hear what yall think.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
