Lyrics:
Violet, Violet
Violet's the color for me
Halfway between blood and the sky
Everything I want to see

Violet, Violet
Violet's the chakra for me
in the key of B at the top of her head
Seeking divinity

On my way to another place
I stop long enough to breathe

Violet, Violet
Violet's the flower for me
the ancient Greek symbol of love
Flower of fertility
Flower of fertility


Notes:
In Ancient Greece, the violet was both a symbol of love and fertility and the symbol of the city-state of Athens.

Quotes:
"This one takes a lot of cues from Leonard Cohen too, even though it's a very personal song. Violet, my girlfriend, suggested putting this one right before the last track, to have a little calm before the storm"
- Frank on recording Honeycomb - Night Times. 12/06/2005

Did your fianceť cry when she heard 'Violet'?
"Um, I don't know. i think she might have cried when she heard the other song that i'm singing with my ex-wife...but for different reasons."
- Interview in The Clash.

Chakra
The word comes from the Sanskrit cakra meaning "wheel, circle", and sometimes also referring to the "wheel of life".

The seven main chakras are described as being aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each chakra is associated with a certain color, multiple specific functions, an aspect of consciousness, a classical element, and other distinguishing characteristics.

Chakra - The Crown
Colour - Violet
Primary Function - Connection to the Divine
Element - Space
