"Calvary Song" as written by Jonathan Michael Mobley, Jay Michael Palumbo, Christopher J. Higdon and Kevin Ratterman....
Simple seams with single lines that operate with poised precision.
we'll orchestrate and bend with time and all the strings will fade with fury.
laced with light, all divine the angels sing what is rippled runs in circles all combined which bleeds the seams of sin and sanctity. and we'll lay low till it's close to call, we'll search to sever the calvary song. wel'l look for signs of flashing lights, we'll search to sever the calvary. send down circles that won't subside. in reverence we search to find these compact people with sloped designs. we slip on in and learn to drive these slimmed down people with molded lines. we shape and bend, we modify amorphic people are soon defined. (lay it over lay it on) we'll search and sever the calvary song.

    General Commentgod... when he sings "laced with light, all divine" it sends shivers down my spine. his voice is so moving... even haunting sometimes. but it's SO AMAZING!!! elliott is such a great band. if there's one word i could use to describe their music, it's passionate. they don't fit into any category... their music is just so unique.
    this song is about people fighting for something that they believe in so deeply. I love it... i think it's the best off their new album with maybe the exception of Drive on to Me... but all the songs are so amazing i can hardly decide

    General CommentThis band is amazing and doesnt get the credit it deserves. There in a mood/league of there own. I find all of "False Cathedrals" (there best CD in my mind) to be great for putting in while driving by yourself, or with your gf/bf, at night down a highway. They have that kind of feeling. Great band, great CD.

    General Commentim going to agree + disagree with that comment. False Cathedrals is my favorite album by this wonderful band, but Song in the Air is AWFULLY close, the string section really sculpts Elliott's sound to something incredibly beautiful. the lyrics and structure arent really as good as false cathedrals though. its really hard to choose.
