Shame, stay, know all
but they communicate
try, fade,
the leverage of space

Star, jay,
the fall dawn aim to place
with shades on,
the leverage of...

Shame, shame, shame,
the leverage of, the leverage of

Space, shame, shame,
the leverage of, the leverage of

Hate breaks down
mountains that we
make so tame
oh, the leverage of...

Shame, shame, shame,
the leverage of, the leverage of

Space, shame, shame,
the leverage of, the leverage of

When I was down upon myself
I walked a road thats always there
you and I were everywhere
and I'm alone

She would never know the reason
that I loved to come and see her
where she sits I'll never go
you know it's always there

the leverage of, the leverage of

    General Commentit's hard to work out whether he says shade or shame. i thought he was sayign shade but didn't understand why. i msut say i don't understand the phrase "leverage of space" and the latter part seems like he's regretting the loss of someone or some sort of relatiosnhsip with someone.

    General CommentFor me this song talks about failure, about having done something you swore you would never do again... (I think I would say "shame", not "shade"... :S)

    General CommentThe leverage of space refers to the advantage gained by the first country/people to militarise space. It's a shame, but it's the one remaining frontier of warfare. It is by far the biggest advantage.
