i once adored a chemical reaction
her eyes were made from pieces of the moon
but now i fight the angels for a halo
she feels that she has nothing left to prove

we once owned dreams of being something useful
a sword someone would keep at their side
a friction that would spark a revolution
a radio in tune with the sky

well we tried

now everyone can share what's left
we can share a breath
we can share the air pollution
and we can all control the sun
that's what we'll become
you'll become a resolution

oh i adore a chemical reaction
her features look just like my disguise
we see the world through identical lenses
so i never ask what's going through her mind

it's mine

now everyone can share what's left
we can share a breath
we can share the air pollution
and we can all control the sun
that's what we'll become
you'll become a resolution
now everyone can share what's left
we can share a breath
we can share the air pollution
and we can all control the sun
that's what we'll become
you'll become a resolution

    General Commentearth day anthem? this is a pretty song any day. not quite sure what this song means other than the obvious 'earth' tones. Maybe a relationship going bad, but the narrator refuses to break up and rather share whatever they have left nomatter how bad(pollution) it is for both of them. far stretch?

    General CommentIts a 'sort someone would keep at thier side' isnt it.
    And its about a guy who falls in love with a girl who wants to leave earth (die?)
    'but now i fight the angels for a halo
    she feels that she has nothing left to prove' and its talking about how much everyone wanted to be something big when we're younger and then our dreams die and we become nothing really, 'resolutions'

    General Commenti think the "chemical reaction" is saying that it wasnt love between him and a girl, just a chemical reaction.
