"A Hole In The World (Acoustic)" as written by Robert Iii Keeley, Timothy Payne, Steven Pedulla, Geoffrey Rickly and Thomas Rule....
In this blackout inertia will hold our thoughts
And the exit sign offers no light to see by
Can we cast our shadows alone in the dark?
I can't see without you

When the world comes crashing down
Part with it
Start again
When the world comes crashing down
These notes will fold themselves
Standing at the margin's edge
To see where the daybreak ends
You can find compassion here
But the page turns too fast

We fell in this hole that opened up
Giving up on hope
Living without love
And we still type black lines
When the world comes crashing down
These notes will fold themselves

Adjust the aperture to focus on the negative
Like phosphors in the darkroom ignite
Like dodging faces in the corner of the print
Frame by frame this hole is opening and we fall in

There is no such thing as whole
There is a hole in the world

    General Commentyes, "Love is love" is a Frail lyric. Thursday decided to include that because it's a remembrance, an echo of the thing that was shared between him and a friend who killed himself. the last conversation they had was about how everyone is so focused on romantic love and didn't seem to care about love in general and compassion towards people who are unlike you. I think that's a great message and it makes most people look pathetic that all they care about is their significant others.

    General CommentI think the line "Love is Love" has ties to homosexual love as well. I know that Geoff has expressed his positive feelings on homosexuality in his lyrics before so it makes sense to me.

    And didn't Tom write this song?

    General CommentUm no, Geoff does not write everything. Tom (or someone else from the band, I forgot their name) has written a song that they play before too. And I think it may have been this one.

    General Commenti like this version a lot better than the other. thursday should make more acoustic songs.
    i think the whole song is based on that one lyric 'love is love'; as thursdaynight said, the whole thing about people being over-obsessed with romantic love.

    General CommentSo much of our last record was about just a general passion too. Especially in the song "Hole in the World," where it has that refrain "love is love is love is love." It's definitely about all kinds of love. Too many people only recognize love as romantic love and even the basis of Thursday having the dove as the symbol. For me, since the dove has been about so many different things, it's such a loaded symbol. What I thought it should mean, like the best possible meaning for a dove would be passion. If there is one pure aesthetic value that I wanted to represent in a living thing, it would be a general love, you know what I mean?
