"The Levy" as written by Matt Good, Travis Brandon Richter, Derek Alan Bloom and Sonny Moore....
Now, rise, rise, rise to fall
I never cared, never cared to try until now
To find home
The distance grows as the ground approaches

Faith at least in the form of gravity
Keeps me low at the ladder
Time to crawl to the salty heel that pins my life

Rise, rise, rise to fall
I never cared, never cared to try until now
To find home
The distance grows as the ground approaches

Now, rise, rise, rise to fall
I never cared, never cared to try until now
To find home
The distance grows as the ground approaches

Climb, climb, climb, to fall!
Climb, climb, climb, to fall!

    General Comment1st to post...I must say...this song is amazing, I've been listening to it since it's been up online, although I don't think the lyrics are "the salty hill" because that doen't make any sense... anyways, I love Sonny's voice on this track, it sounds different, but I love it :) by the way--CD OUT MARCH 21ST GO GET IT!!

    General CommentI have no idea what the meaning of this song is. I guess its still personal to the band, which is how it should be if you ask me. I am just SO impressed by FFTL. Bringing out music with a new sound is hard, and they have been getting alot of criticism for it (just look on their myspace). However, the song seems really deep compared to the older stuff, and shows that FFTL do not need to rely on great, catchy lyrics (note to self, etc.) to create an awesome track. I love it.

    General Commenti love how haunting this song is...and when sonny screams NOOO i love the double bass at the end, it sounds absolutly perfect. i think the song means that when you lose everything is the only time when you really start to try and pick yourself back up..because you never really start out with nothing unless you lose something to begin with.
