You were discovered bended over the dead
Only to find out you were not even in the room
See through but solid, holy but complete
All will be followed
Seen to, tended none the least




Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "See-Through" by Low explore the idea of perception and reality. The opening line, "You were discovered bended over the dead," sets a morbid scene in which someone is caught in a suspicious position. However, the second line, "Only to find out you were not even in the room," reveals a twist that challenges the initial perception. This suggests that what we see and assume is not always accurate or true, and highlights the importance of questioning our assumptions and investigating further.


The themes of perception and reality are further explored in the following lines: "See through but solid, holy but complete / All will be followed / Seen to, tended none the least." These lines suggest that something may appear transparent or "see through," yet still have substance (solidity). The concept of holiness is thrown in as well, implying that our conceptions of goodness and morality may not always be clear cut. Finally, the idea that "all will be followed" and "seen to" may suggest some form of judgement or accountability.


Overall, "See-Through" is a thought-provoking song that encourages listeners to question their perceptions and assumptions, and to consider the complexity of reality.
