S.A.M.
DEER FROM SPACE Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

On these streets I have wandered on
Amidst the smoke comin' from my lungs

I'm a long long way from home
May it cradle me till it break my bones


I never see the light of a star
I just see it fading

I've never seen it shining above
Me..


On this road I've been too long
Dragged my corpse through mud and stone

Everybody just comes and goes
Never again, never have belonged


I never see the light of a star
I just see it fading





I've never seen it shining above
Me..

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of DEER FROM SPACE's song S.a.M. depict the feeling of being lost and disconnected from one's home and surroundings. The singer is wandering on the streets and inhaling the smoke, indicating that they might be going through a period of stress or addiction. Despite being far away from home, they crave the comforting embrace of their hometown, even if it means breaking their bones.


The lines "I never see the light of a star, I just see it fading" suggest that the singer is so consumed by their problems and worries that they are unable to appreciate the beauty of the night sky. They feel disconnected and isolated from the world around them as they've never seen the star shining above them. The repetition of this line emphasizes the singer's loneliness and desperation.


The second verse continues to describe the singer's journey, which has been long and arduous. They've been dragging their corpse through mud and stone, indicating that they're tired, physically and mentally exhausted. The line "everyone just comes and goes, never again, never have belonged" suggests that the singer has been unable to form lasting connections with anyone they've met along the way. They feel like an outsider, unable to find a place where they fit in.


Overall, S.a.M. is a poignant and introspective song that captures the sense of alienation and disconnection many people feel in modern society.


Line by Line Meaning

On these streets I have wandered on
I've traveled aimlessly on these urban streets


Amidst the smoke comin' from my lungs
As I exhale the fumes of my toxicity


I'm a long long way from home
I'm far from the place of my origin


May it cradle me till it break my bones
I hope this place will comfort me until I perish


I never see the light of a star
I've never seen celestial radiance


I just see it fading
Instead, I witness its decline


I've never seen it shining above
The starry brilliance has never been above me


Me..
Just darkness surrounds me


On this road I've been too long
I've traveled this path for too many lifetimes


Dragged my corpse through mud and stone
The weariness of my journey now takes its toll


Everybody just comes and goes
People enter and leave my life without meaning or permanence


Never again, never have belonged
I've never truly found a sense of belonging
