Oh brother, now we're going undercover
Cause she's more than just a lover to me
Can't you see that there's a reason
For this geresy and treason
It's the season for instability

Good lovin' two and one more in the oven
This is way above a discovery
Supercede your jurisdiction
Let's pretend that this is fiction
Make a story out of all that we see

So can we agree enough is enough?
Madeline see the magazines for the trees
So she tells me that
Everything needs some time in the sun
Everyone breathes there oxygen quietly
carefully carrying along

Hey neighbor can I ask you for a favor?
See I'm sketching up the neighborhood's dreams
Cause I need to hit the walls
of coffee bars and shopping malls
And show the world a side that they've never seen

So what do you think about teaming up?
Gravity sleeps when we see
that all we are is not all we will be

    General CommentThis is an awesome song! The more I listen to it the more I like it. I'm not sure what it's about, sometimes I think it's about love in general, sometimes I think it's about life in general, sometimes I think it's not about anything in particular...

    General CommentMy interpretation, it may be a little out there, but a friend of mine told me and i think its possible. I think this is an anti-war song. Look into it, its a 'season of instability' with all this 'heresy and treason.' In other words, theres a lot of things going on in this war that isnt really being talked about. Maybe the truth needs to be uncovered. "Madeline sees the magazines for the trees," just like trees get their time in the sun, the war needs to get its exposure for what it really is. The magazines can hit the 'walls of coffee bars and shopping malls' where everyone can see how bad this war is. My favorite line "gravity sleeps when we see that all we are is not all we will be,' meaning if we band together, theres no telling what we can do and help. I promise im not a crazy liberal, i just think that could be a meaning, cause its quite confusing when you listen to it. If it is, mad props to Matt, thats some impressive song writing.

    General CommentI think it's about everyone but the protagonist seeing things strictly in black and white. There's no in between and no one cares to rememdy or fix the situation.
