"Angels/Losing/Sleep" as written by Robert Jens/maida Rock and Jeremy/mazur Taggart....
Looks like the Holy Ghost is gone
Now your afraid of yourself
Over your shoulder you have to watch
Heaven fall into hell
Looks like your boat's about to sink
So it's time to prepare
Even the angels are losing sleep
And the sidewalks are bare

It's like the calm before the storm
You better swim
Just like it's cold before it's warm
You'll get back here again
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait 'till you fall from grace
It's the calm before the storm
It's there then it's gone

It looks like the wall was in your head
Not your heart
Just when you think it's figured out
Well it all falls apart

It's like the calm before the storm
You better swim
Just like it's cold before it's warm
You'll get back here again
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait 'till you fall from grace
It's the calm before the storm
It's there then it's gone

Looks like the Holy Ghost is gone
Looks like the Holy Ghost is gone
Looks like the walls in your head
Looks like the wall was in your head
Wall was in your head

I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait 'till you fall from grace
It's the calm before the storm

I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait, I'll wait
I'll wait, I'll wait 'till you fall from grace
It's the calm before the storm
It's there then it's gone.

    General CommentThe new OLP stuff sounds like a cross between older OLP and music today. It's a great mix and will be a breath of fresh air in music these days.

    I like how you can't even label the CD a certain genre.

    General CommentOh, and just a tidbit of info: The song was first named "Holy Ghost".

    I'm sure no one really cares but maybe we'll look back in a few years and see it or something... I dunno.

    General CommentI could be completely wrong about this, but I think this song's basically about Bush and his invasion of Iraq.

    General CommentTo me, it's about all the chaos that's in the world today. Expecially with terrorism and the Katrina storm. It's eerie when Raine says "You better swim".. like he predicted the flood. >_

    General Comment(i dont know why it cut off the rest of my post, so i'll post it again)

    To me, it's about all the chaos that's in the world today. Expecially with terrorism and the Katrina storm. It's eerie when Raine says "You better swim".. like he predicted the flood. XD. Also, Angels Losing Sleep, to me symbolizes that so many people are dying or suffering that Angels have to work over time to do whatever it is that they do to bring light into this world again.


    "Just like it's cold before it's warm
    You'll get back here again"

    This part is interesting to me. After all the "coldness" there will "warmness", so it kinda means everything will be fine. However, "you'll get back here again" means that we will return to the "coldness" in a never ending cycle.. because the world is just messed like that.

    I don't know if i'm right. What do you think?

    General CommentI think the song is Raine remarking to a friend who he feels has been brainwashed or a person who cannot think for himself.

    Raine isn't much a fan of organized religion, so maybe it is the story of a person who followed something so "religiously" and that person is finding out they were wrong all along (looks like the Holy Ghost is gone), and Raine is waiting with an "I told you so" type of deal.

    General CommentTo be technically correct, Raine's Agnostic.

    Now to me, this song is much about people always experiencing bad shit happening to them, but they'll always have a place to call home. Sure ti's cliche', but thats what I reckon.
