One two three four
I don't wanna live no more

Well I've got no more reason to live
And I've got no more love to give
Tonight's the night
I'll paint the town red
I'll put another hole through my head

Unjustifiable existence
Unjustifiable
Unjustifiable existence
Unjustifiable existence

Now I feel the weight of the world on my back
I've seen the future
The future looks black
It's what I must do
I have no reservations
Ain't talking bout self preservation

Unjustifiable existence
Unjustifiable
Unjustifiable existence
Unjustifiable existence

Gravity
Crushing me
Gravity
Crushing me
Crushing me
Crushing me

Yeah I feel something pulling me down
Forcing me between myself and the ground
Of all the nightmares that ever came true
I think that gravity (gravity) is you

Unjustifiable existence
Unjustifiable
Unjustifiable existence
Unjustifiable existence

Gravity
Crushing me
Gravity
Crushing me
Crushing me
Crushing me

I've got a problem
A problem with hate
I can't go on dragging this weight
A cold steel hand that won't let go
Acid-filled thoughts out of control

I built myself a nice little cage
With bars of anger and a lock of rage
I can't help asking who's got the key
When I know damned well it's me

No I ain't hinting for sympathy
I'm used to dealing with apathy
The scars on my wrist may seem like a crime
Just wish me better luck next time

So what if I died a thousand deaths
You think I'm insane but I have no regrets
One more time won't matter no question
Suicide is self-expression.

    General CommentWell the song is pretty straight forward. I could picture Peter writing this on the top on a tall building... Looking over the edge and calculating the gravitational constent to find how fast he'd be going when he hits the ground at a splat.

    General CommentHe is talking about the weight of life. And, also incorporating terminal velocity as a little black humour.

    General Commentmy favorite thing about this song is the chorus at the end (it sounds like one of Enslaved's vikin choruses). It's permanently stuck in my head, and I don't think it's ever coming out.

    General CommentThis is actually a sarcastic, playful song. Type O at their best. An epic masterpiece composition.

    An angry suicidal tirade about something that is keeping him down, and that thing is, Gravity!

    "of all the nightmares that evercame true, Gravity it's you!"

    It's really a fun song about how one can be driven to the brink, and then blame it on damned Gravity, for keeping him down, literally keeping him down.

    The depth of the song is in the realness of the downward spiral he sings about, as if he is truly suicidal. It makes you examine life and reality...
