"Grave's Disease" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
You do not worry
You do not try
The winter froze all of your things and you went inside
It's not surprising
No there's no surprise
This cold here is one of the properties of the elements
This cold here is one of those I wish not to defend

Don't wait in the last light and the warmth of the winter sun
Don't get caught out with the temperature going down
Don't try to defy the properties of your decisions
I'm heating this space that's been saved for warmer conditions

There is no future
If you think you know better
The year ends in December
So why even bother
Above the weekends
Above the thrills
Beyond the worth of every day there is to fill
If you're distracted
I'm letting you go
Out into nature
Noble and cannot be owned
To live for the weekends
To live for the thrills
I want the worth of everyday there is to fill

Don't wait in the last light and the warmth of the winter sun
Don't get caught out with the temperature going down
We'll see next summer there could be something so much better
Off come the sweaters and who are you to stop it

    General CommentI believe it was someone far wiser than me who said if you love someone, set them free. It Apppears old Matty boy agrees.

    General CommentThis song is amazing, and the title depicts the song perfectly. Because Grave's Disease increases your heartbeat, makes your very tired, throws off your sleep patern, makes your eyes protrude and some areas of rasied skin. And when you look at this song, its a perfect representation of this song. Not only is it beautiful, it has a very deep meaning.

    General Commenti think that this is about a summer relationship that fizzles out as winter approaches. they try to make it work in the winter but they simply don't have time for eachother beyond the weekends. But the last line about the sweaters comming off suggests that the relationship might rekindle (sp?) as summer comes around again.

    General CommentFor some reason, there's a certain part of the music that just hits me. The music that plays during the line "beyond the worth of every day there is to fill" and then into "if you're distracted." Every time I hear that change (when it goes from the E-minor, B-flat/D, G, C, and then back to the Gsus) it's like the first time I heard the Beatles (not close, but it's the closest thing I can compare it to). It's so beautiful and layered, but it's tastefully layered. There are no wasted notes in this song.

    General CommentBy the way, that's really sad that the last comment before mine was made exactly one year ago. MPPA is so great!

    General CommentJust discovering MPPA and buying up the back catalogue. Love this song. I thought it was about someone who doesn't live much of a life and Matt is urging them to get out and enjoy life while they can. I equate winter here with death.
