"Oh! Gravity." as written by and Tim Foreman Jon Foreman....
La la la! La la la!
La la la! La la la!
La la la! La la la!
La la la! La la la!

There's a fracture in the color bar
In the backseat of a parked car
By the liquor store where the streetlight
Keep you company till the next night

In the same town, there's the same scar
In the same glow of the liquor store
By the freeway where the headlight
Keep her company till the next night

Oh! Gravity
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Sons of my enemies
Why can't we seem to keep it together?

In the back room of the Pentagon
There's a thin man with the line drawn
With a red jaw and a red bite
Watch the headline on the next night

Oh! Gravity
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Sons of my enemies
Why can't we seem to keep it together?

Why this tragedy?
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Oh! Gravity
Why can't we seem to put it together?

In the fallout, the fallout
We found out the hype won't get you through
We're connected, connected
I meant it, the hype won't get you through
(Through!)

Oh! Gravity
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Oh! Gravity
Why can't we seem to put it together?

Why this tragedy?
Why can't we seem to keep it together?
Oh! Gravity
Why can't we seem to put it together, now?

La la la la la la!
La la la!
La la la la la la la la!
La la la la la!
La la la!
La
Let's put it together

    General CommentI'm sure some of these are wrong because the recording I have was obtained by someone holding a cell phone up to a radio that was playing the song acoustic. The fifth line of the song is a total guess, and the first one doesn't sound right either. Any help on these would be awesome.

    General CommentI listened to it about 500 times so far, and after thinking about it a while, what I got out of it was that it's talking about a what makes people fall morally.

    General CommentAn article/interview on the album said its a politically-motivated appeal for peace, love and understanding. Which makes sense..

    General CommentFirst of all ThisSettingSun's lyrics are compeletely wrong. Second, its pretty straightforward wat the chorus means, but the verses make no sense to me

    General CommentNotice that thissettingsun's lyrics were posted in July, when all we had of the song was a cell phone recording of an acoustic version of the song. Needless to say, it was a bit hard to understand.

    General Commentit sounds like they're goin back to their old sound with this one, but switch back to their newer more "rockish" sound with the next track. its great. switchfoot is one of the best bands of the generation in my opinion. oh and drummerjoe, you try interpreting the lyrics off a phone recording. before the cd was even out. yea thats right you cant. so shut up.
