I fight this with two closed fists
Under a purple sky
Naked trees are clawing for the air
This won't pull on emotions

But it's something to do
Go ahead, try it
If you dislike, refunds at the door
I always fell for the sucker punch

I confess the changes
Maybe I'm growing up
From the shoes on my feet
To the stench in my mouth

I'll remain transparent
And while you speak in codes, I'll speak in spirit
I tasted, I did that, now I'm hooked.

    General CommentI love this song. I think it describes people needing God...trees clawing for air...maybe a temptation to do something, nothing to lose but it was a lie...i always fell for the sucker punch...then he grows up...i confess the changes...and while people do what they do...he speaks in spirit...and hes hooked

    maybe, maybe not

    General CommentThe dance team I'm on does a ballet/modern dance to this song with 4 guys and 4 girls. The piece represents the struggles we have with temptation. It builds and builds on the false highs of the physical world until there's a collapse. In the end, some realize that they can only be satisfied in Christ and not each other, while the others are left alone on the floor.

    General CommentThe end when he says "I tasted, I did that, now I'm hooked" I think he means he tasted God's love, and now he's hooked and never leaving it again.
