"Symmetry" as written by Andrew D. Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, Asa Taccone and Jorma Taccone....
How would we have known we would wash away. It's two solemn searching souls together to the sea. Amongst the creatures underneath the deepening. Hold it to the flame burning you and me.

Sacrifice the talk and praise the eyes and all. Wonder and amazement. Notice every star floating in the arms of symmetry so ageless.

How would we have known we would wash away. It's two solemn searching souls together to the sea. Among the mountains underneath the deepening. Rising to the sun but in the shadows all along.

Sacrifice the talk and live for holding on, to everything sacred. Surrounded by the mouths of broken oars and trouts covering the surface.

Sacrifice the talk and cherish what we told, come what may surround us. The drift with clutching arms in a world so ever dark, wonder what that took us.

How would we have known we would wash away. It's two solemn searching souls together to the sea. Amongst the creatures underneath the deepening. Hold it to the flame burning you and me.

Sacrifice the talk and praise the eyes and all. Wonder and amazement. Notice every star floating in the arms of symmetry so ageless.

    General CommentThis song is amazing. It certainly seems full of regret for a failed relationship, but there's something more to it that I can't put into words.

    General CommentFrom the booklet from Feast And Famine:

    How would we have know we would wash away? As two solemn searching souls, together to the sea. Amongst the creatures, underneath the deepening, holding to the flame burning you and me. We sacrifice the talk and praise the eyes in all wonder and amazement, and notice every star floating in the arms of symmetry so ageless. How would we have know we would wash away? As two solemn searching souls, together to the sea. Amongst the mountains, underneath the deepening, rising to the sun but in the shadows all along. We sacrifice the talk and live for holding on to everything sacred. Surrounded by the miles of broken oars and trials covering the surface. We sacrifice the talk and cherish what we're taught, come what may surround us. And drift with clutching arms in a world so ever dark, wondering what betook us. How would we have know we would wash away? As two solemn searching souls, together to the sea. Amongst the creatures, underneath the deepening. Holding to that flame burning you and me. We sacrifice the talk and praise the eyes in all wonder and amazement, and notice every star floating in the arms of symmetry so ageless.

    General CommentAs said by chuck on his daytrotter.com session about this song

    :: This is for my wife Jill. My foundation and my love that keeps my chin up and keeps me looking forward to everyday I have left on this rock. Life is too damn short and we never know what we'll be dealt. Or who will stay and who will pass. I do believe in true love but I also believe in choice and will, just as much as chance and fate. If you're reading this and you're a person who believes there is no one out there for you, you may be right. Or you may just be lazy and drab. Life is what you make of it and sometimes we have the choice to reach and go for what we desire or grab what we feel may fulfill us. And sometimes it reaches out and smacks you in the head and drags you up a mountain to slide down sideways through the clouds right before bringing you to Mexico to be humbled by seahabilitation and what I like to call "the real world." If you don't believe in true love, you may as well not believe in the stars. If there's someone you believe in, a love you feel is true and real. Saturate yourself with it. Give freely and fairly and wear no regret.
