"Episode IV" as written by Jim Adkins, Tom Linton, Rick Burch, Zach Lind....
Episode IV leads us away from here.
Don't expect to find what you're (looking to).
I can see the light leading away from you.

Let's disappear,
We'll take a trip of no return to outer space.
And swim in pools which keep us warm,
Cleaned off the sand from off your feet.
We'll dance off time to the songs we've never liked.

And sing off key thinking it sounds all right.
And you know I almost lost my will to live.
(we're sure) you tell time in your.
Episode IV leads us away from here.
Don't expect to find what you're (looking to).

Let's disappear,
Both take a trip of no return to outer space.
And swim in pools which keep us warm,
Cleaned off the sand from off your feet.
We'll dance off time to the songs we've never liked.

And sing off key thinking it sounds all right.
And you know I almost lost my will to live.
(we'll show) and tell time one more time.
And you know I almost lost my will to live.
(we'll show) and tell time to your friends.

    General CommentA guess: The title of "Episode IV" in the StarWars saga is "A New Hope". Perhaps this song refers to just that - finding a new hope for life in someone you love. =]

    General Commenthow has no one commented JEW's greatest love song? i especially love the 'sing off key, thinkin it sounds alright' bit because thats what a lot of people do when they're in love, in the sense that you no longer care what is happening as long as you and your partner are happy. i can't be cruel to a song with a star wars reference either. beautiful.

    General CommentI agree.

    How can there be no comments (except for us two now) over this song.

    This is easily one of JEW's greatest songs. JEW shows thier musical ability in every song they play and this song shows one of their many aspects. Beautiful.

    Great song, Great band.

    General CommentYeah I really love this JEW song. Although it always makes me really sad. Beautiful lyrics and a wonderful song all around. It is deffinetly a love song but it has such a melancholy feel to it. It breaks my heart when he says " and you know I almost lost my will to live"

    General CommentMan, this song is likely the best off static prevails. It's a pure emotion and comforting song to simply listen to. I love how this band can just warm your heart by hearing a song, even if you don't catch all the lyrics. And then, once you hear all the lyrics, it just amplifies the song's power.
    "we'll dance off time to the songs we've never liked. and sing of key, thinking it sounds alright" i can't get over those lyrics right there. perfect. Heheh, yeah, guess i'm just addicted/in love with music overall. And this band masters all that music was made for.
