"Charge" as written by and Jesse Alejandro/hart Tobias....
The way you love
Have you got a name for it
Cause I don't understand it
The language is an annoying necessity
And I depend on all the regular things
Got a list tattooed on my memory
Of how our tryst should unfold

I'm falling from the opposite
What good is it
Fight the map with no key attached
My heart's enlarged and I charge

What do you say
To a dream that won't go away
Cause I don't know if I can stand it
Forever isn't something you want to be
And I rely on familiar things
Seven days all have special meanings
But you just call it a week

I'm falling from the opposite
What good is it
Fight the map with no key attached
My heart's enlarged and I charge

I'm falling from the opposite
What good is it
Fight the map with no key attached
My heart's enlarged and I charge

The night is young
And the moon is a mother to both of us
We both understand this
Marriage is an old and tired religion
And I love all the traditional things
Domestic bliss and all that shit
Confusion is a definite direction

I'm falling from the opposite
What good is it
Fight the map with no key attached
My heart's enlarged and I charge

I'm falling from the opposite
What good is it
Fight the map with no key attached
My heart's enlarged and I charge

I'm falling from the opposite
What good is it
Fight the map with no key attached
My heart's enlarged and I charge

    General CommentThe song is about the opposition between expectation and actual experience, specially when it comes to romance and its rapture. It deals with the inadequacy of the mind, the familiar as confronted with the somehow wild experiences of being in love. It is a song about growing old, in a way.

    Especially the verse "My heart's enlarged and I charge"; portrays the somehow juvenile experience of having to take in a lot and further explore, which experience can cause one to feel intoxicated by the delight of knowledge but bothered and confused by the feeling of emptiness, meaning, the realization much is yet to be known, to be conquered, to be figured out, and the uncertainty about whether this emptiness will ever be gone.

    This existential problem is very important for a metaphysician called René Guénon, who tried to purport the idea the Eastern traditions have a better answer to it, at least in some ways, than the West. The idea of understanding things comprehensively through universal notions or predicates can aliviate this confusing experience because the universal notions dismiss the feeling there is an unknown beyond. Or, as a religious, e.g. a traditional Catholic like, the holding to a faith can aliviate the feeling of not having enough grasp over things.
