In the fall,
we circle through the leaves
and talk about the little ones.
And we smile, but never say too much.
The moment always vanishing.
One by one the neighbors’ lights come on.
Our October day is almost gone.

I know the border lines we drew between us
keep the weapons down,
keep the wounded safe;
I know our antebellum innocence
was never meant to see the light of our armistice day.

In the spring,
we climbed the rolling hills
and talked about our budding plans.
And we smiled,
our faces like a mirror
showing us our secret sides.
But then the fights:
the sharp words splintering the night,
how I couldn’t be what you’d need…
but oh how I could make you bleed—

I know the border lines we drew between us
keep the weapons down,
keep the wounded safe;
I know our antebellum innocence
was never meant to see the light of our armistice.
But how much would I give to have it back again?
How much did we lose
to live this way?

You’ll go home—I’ll stay here—
seasons keep on marching—
I’ll stay here—you’ll go home
with only strangers watching—


Vienna Teng - Antebellum

akjghdfgl I've been in love with this song since I heard it, and I've associated it with Sasuke and Itachi (having it playing endlessly on repeat while reading the manga for the first time ♥) These two are so very, very tragic, they break my heart utterly ;___; Ahhh I'm in love with Itachi again. DAMN YOU UCHIHAS, DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE D:

Antebellum means "before the war". Anyway, lame interpretation is lame. I sort of tried tying the clouds at the top to the Akatsuki clouds at the bottom, but it didn't quite work, amongst many other things D:

Thank you! I understand, I actually didn't like Sasuke very much up until recently (still not quite sure what happened there, perhaps I'm a sucker for tragedy D:)
