Planemo feat. Mike Patton
The Book Of Knots Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Planemo
Planemo

Tonight, I orbit a row
My own galactic halo
When dark night of flows
With your celestial goals
Molecular clouds
In the carvers of the soul

Planemo
Planemo

In our helium paws
I've lost my mother's straw

Planemo
Planemo (my)
Planemo

From the avast straw
A far villein
The point where we find us from the sun
From the sun

And with the super coal
A supernova drawn
Bubbling ejector of the flames
Of the flames

Feel the stone kiss
In my veneries
See the blue ship flow
You crossed the bay, no escape
There's a city

Hyperstatic
Keep pulling me up
Keep so strong just in broad day
An international
Past another goal
You go

Another fusion
My illusion
We're finally losing gravity




Gravity
Zero gravity

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to The Book Of Knots's song Planemo featuring Mike Patton present themes of celestial travel, emotional distance, and the search for meaning in the cosmos. The first stanza finds the singer orbiting their own "galactic halo," exploring the depths of a dark night sky with their "celestial goals" in mind. They observe "molecular clouds" that carve through their soul, highlighting a sense of deep exploration and internalization.


The second stanza references "helium paws" and a "mother's straw" to suggest a detachment or sense of loss from home, further emphasizing the weighty introspection of the first part of the song. From here, the lyrics shift to a description of the universe's more explosive elements, including supernovas and ejecting flames. Despite these cataclysmic events, the singer ends the song by musing on the beauty of the universe's stony landscape and exploring a sense of weightlessness in zero gravity.


Overall, Planemo presents a number of themes worth considering, such as the beauty and the terror of space, the search for purpose within an ever-expanding universe, and the struggle to find a sense of belonging while voyaging away from one's origins.

Tonight, I orbit alone
In my own galactic halo
Where dark matter flows
With your celestial goals
Molecular clouds
In the covers of the soul

Feel the stone kiss
In my veneries
See the blue shift pull you close to me
no escape velocity

Hyper-static

You go

Bubble fusion
An illusion
We're finally losing gravity

Mike Patton is the most versatile artist ever!!!

@robertjones5689

planemo. Noun. (plural planemos) (astronomy) an astronomical object with enough mass to achieve hydrostatic equilibrium, but not enough to initiate core fusion at any time in its existence. That is, it is rounded in shape and is smaller than a star.



 This is the perfect song for that discription.

@fortieschic

Love this..... Builds from So dark and haunting.....to pattons powerful full on vocals
