Arienette Lyrics - Bright Eyes

Review The Song (4)

The fragile keep secrets, gathered in pockets,
And they'll sell them for nothing a cheap watch or locket
That kind of gold washes off.
And the sad act like lepers, they stick to the shadows
And long to ring bells of warning to tell of their coming
So that the pure can shut their doors.
And the angry are animals senseless and savage.
They act without order in logical lapses,
They stain their mouths with blood.
So take my hand, this barren land is alive tonight.
The corn has grown stalks that form a wall too high.
But the wind carries sounds that I can't see from beyond that line.
Then the stalks begin to sway
Oh stay with me Arienette until the wolves are away.
Well the wicked are vultures, and they bake in the canyons.
They circle in sunlight and wait for their victims
To collapse and call to them.
And the desperate are water. They will run down forever
As they soak into silence mend up together,
In a dark and distant, dark and distant place.
So don't leave me here with only mirrors watching me.
This house it holds nothing but the memories.
And the moon it leaves silver but never sleep.
And then the silver turns to gray
Oh stay with me Arienette until the wolves are away.

I can definately understand if this is about the woman he loves most, even if he hasn't yet met her. I wrote a song about the same thing. I named him Tyler. It didn't really make sense to me, since I didn't know anyone with that name, but knowing someone else has done the same thing makes me feel less lonesome.

Perhaps 'Arienette' is his symbol for the woman in his life that he loves the most. Maybe her name is not Arienette, or he hasn't found her, but he can imagine her and he gave her the name; Arienette.

And maybe, this song, in a way, is describing life's hardships and the people in it.

For example, 'The desperate are water'. The desperate people, meaning, and they'll 'they’ll run down forever as they soak into silence,
and end up together in a dark and distant
dark and distant place'.

I had just heard this song for the second time, and had not analyzed it completely, but on the album 'Fever's & Mirrors' there is a 'song' titled 'An attempt to tip the scale' and in it (It's like an.. interview) the interviewer says 'who is this Arienette? What does she symbolize?' and Conor replies 'I don't want to talk about that, she might be listening' and the interviewer replies 'oh, she's real?' Conor replies 'No.' And the interviewer is kind of like.. she's made up? and Conor responds 'only as real as me and you'

Or something on those lines. (Google the lyrics to get the exact words) and in this, I was like.. hey. Lets listen to that song. And.. well, that is what I think the song is about.


Conor Oberst is jesus. Sweet peanuts.

Yeah. | Reviewer: I learnt your favourite song on piano. | 11/21/07


I think it's purly about authority taken to a higher level in most cases.
About limited curtoisy for people too.
Different stabilities of peoples emotions. It's like there's no sympathy left.

I find it pretty hard to understand where he's coming from all the same. I dunno i'll probably figure it out properly one day.

song that makes me
naw i love bright eyes,
i'd marry conor oberst , =)
i live off his music,
especially fevers&mirrors,

the fragile keep secrets
gathered in pockets
and they’ll sell them for nothing
a cheap watch or locket
that kind of gold washes off
and the sad act like lepers
they stick to the shadows
they long to ring bells of warning
to tell of their coming
so that the pure can shut their doors
and the angry are animals senseless and savage
they act without order in logical lapses
they stain their mouths with blood
so take my hand

prodigy is to less a meaning
