    This song is really dark.. sounds like hard addiction which is really real, when I thought of chalk tablet towers my mind pictured Xanax (which I struggled with really bad) but it can be any substance really and what he says in the song doesn’t sound like he’s talking about someone he loves, it sounds like he personified his addiction and is desperate to go back, like when he said “I wanna get drunk I wanna get stoned I wanna give up I wanna go home”. This song is about his addiction calling him back to where he was comfortable in life, he doesn’t care about trophies or a cell with a fancy view (rehab centers) he just want to be the drug. The rockets taking off from the parting sea (people leaving rehab centers) not being religious or anything but the parting sea was a symbol of hope in the Bible, he also says there is no form of contact there but actually there would be people there just not any contact with drugs . He’s clearly morning not having drugs with him and he just want to go back (till the end of summer). This song hits hard because I just lost my brother to drugs a month back.. I trying to help but I just wasn’t enough. I went through addiction myself, I’ve been clean for a while but if I’m being honest the craving never goes away it’s always there waiting for you to with open arms we just have to learn to live with it and train our minds to never break. To anyone going thru this I know the world doesn’t see the world the way you do and you might feel completely alone even if you aren’t. but just know that we ALL share something in common. everybody does. we all bury our pain with something it can be anything, and our pain and pain tolerance varies, it really does. But when pain gets harder so so does burying it, we just learned the unhealthy way of burying it. I wish I had everything figured out but I don’t. if I did my brother would still be alive rn but please know that there IS a way and to never give up on the person inside ever, I know it’s been scary for you. It’s easier said then done really but I believe. Godspeed

    Chalk tablet towers like drawing shadows Chemical distraction, you are not with me I departed in the spring to a distant star But I could not get back, I had gone too far (oh-oh-oh-oh) I wanna get drunk I wanna get stoned I wanna give up I wanna go ho-o-o-ome Watching rockets take off From the parting sea How will I ever touch you If you are not with me? (oh-oh-oh-oh, out here) There's only silence (out here) No form of contact (out here) I am dreaming Looking into the darkness (oh-oh-oh-oh) Home (Home) Home (Home) Home (Homе) Home (Home) Home (Homе) Home (Home) Home (Home) Home (Home) I won't be back 'til the end of summer Will you still be there? I won't give up on you, darling Just tell me that you care I don't need no trophies No cell with a view There's nothing I wouldn't give One minute with you, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh You, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh You, ooh, ooh, ooh-ooh Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

    Music video: The scene opens with 2D sitting in a field just bobbing along to the music. He looks at a picture of St. Vincent, disappointed that she is not there with him ("You are not here with me.") The background begins to slightly vibrate and change colors ("to a distant star") and 2D smiles as St. Vincent appears next to him. They sing the chorus and Vincent begins to float in the air; smiling, St. Vincent beckons 2D to follow here ("I want to go home") and flies up into the air. Following her ("Watching rockets take off"), 2D marvels at how he is in outer space. Noticing he can no longer see St. Vincent (1:05), 2D begins to panic and propels himself through space to try and find her; he travels past several planets ("There's only silence") and also passes by the Voyager 1 probe ("No form of contact"). 2D eventually finds St. Vincent in front of the 'Pillars of Creation' and they stare at it (the sounds captured by the Hubble telescope coming from the 'Pillars' is heard during the bridge). During this, St. Vincent is revealed to be an alien and transforms into her actual appearance; she points towards the Pillars, signaling that it is her home and unfortunately must leave 2D behind. Sadly accepting they can no longer be together, the two dance in front of the Pillars ("I won't give up") and end with a hug before 2D waves goodbye to St. Vincent ("There's nothing I wouldn't give for one minute with you.") St. Vincent flies towards the Pillars and looks back at 2D, shedding a tear before disappearing into the solar gas and dust clouds. The scene immediately switches to 2D unconscious and drooling on the floor; it is revealed that Murdoc spiked 2D's peppermint tea with something and the video was a dream sequence that 2D had while high. Pleased with himself, Murdoc tries to sneak away but is caught by Russel and Noodle, who are not amused by what Murdoc did.

    i’ve always wondered if damon writes these songs from 2D’s perspective or if it’s from his own? like, does he pay attention to the lore and follow it or is it mainly jamie? and if this song just so happens to be written from 2D’s point of view, who is he talking about? who is “you” referring to in this song?? who’s he wanting to touch? who won’t 2D give up on? and this song might not even be written from 2D’s perspective, the lore stated in the past that 2D’s not the only band member to write lyrics so i’m like ???? I have SO many questions

    The song makes it crystal clear that 2D is struggling again with his substance abuse and thinking of going back to his old ways (good job muds) this song really hits close to home since i know some people close to me that are going cold turkey and struggling on this journey they're on and others out there.
