"The Earth Stopped Cold At Dawn" as written by and Darius/felber Rucker....
Another reason to doubt me
Another teardrop falls
Can't wait for a friend when loneliness calls
Another kiss in the basement
Pour salt on my tongue
No one cries for heros left unsung

Look at me when I'm talking to you
Look at me in the eyes
Then look away and tell me why...why

Another tasteless movie
Another kiss goodnight
Could be a dark oasis in my life
Another icon smashed to pieces
By yesterday's romance
Another hated person no more chances

Look at me when I'm talking to you
Look at me in the eyes
Then look away and tell me why...why

Playin' with a happy boy
A cold place for a man
Familiar faces in a foreign land

The hands kept spinning around the face
But the earth stopped cold at dawn
For a moment, then moved on
For a moment, then moved on...

    General CommentMr Bryan (Mark, one of the guitarists) wrote this when his grandmother passed away. He says so in the linear notes.

    General CommentI love this song because it captures that moment when you get bad news and there's a pause and your heart sinks. But as it points out, it's only for a moment, and then the earth moves on.

    General Commenti found the meaning of this song when my own grandmother passed away..it is like every time you lose someone,either in a relationship or in a much grander scale-like death-we'd always feel helpless and powerless, but the world moves on regardless... its a savage cold and unaffected world out there,
    so lets give the finger back to it!
