We're given a garden
and gave back a parking lot.
We got about fifteen minutes to go
Before this audience starts throwing tomatoes, yeah!
It’s not the end, there is more show!
We got about fifteen minutes to go!

Survived the plague, floated the flood
Just peeked our heads above the mud. No one’s immune, deafening bells,
My God, will we survive ourselves?

I’m not an alarmist but someone should
break the glass and pull that red, T-lever down
To get their attention start lobbing the light grenades that burst and blind them with the truth,
an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth!

Survived the plague, floated the flood, just peeked our heads above the mud.
No one’s immune, deafening bells, my God, will we survive ourselves?
Survived the plague, floated the flood just peeked out heads above the mud.
Wipe off your face, we’ve come this far.

Come on, remember who you are.
Come on! Remember who you are!
Come on! Remember who you are!
Come on, Remember who you are!

    General CommentBrandon on what inspired the album's title Light Grenades: "There's a song called that on the record and it felt like the most pertinent conceptual aspect of the album, the idea of throwing ideas at problems and the ideas explode with light and good results and intention on consciousness," Boyd muses. "So I started imagining imagery of students in different countries protesting and throwing Molotov cocktails with masks over their faces. But there's one brave student who runs up to the police line and, as opposed to throwing rocks or things that destroy, there's this concept of that one courageous, lonely student running up and throwing ideas and having them actually change things. It just seemed kind of a cool concept-the redefining of weaponry."

    General Comment^^ someone likes copying off wikipedia :)
    One of the best off the album. Most reminiscent of their older stuff (thank god), so this song is definately a keeper.
    I dont think i need to explain the songs meaning as its already been explained by the previous post.

    General CommentO my... Great fucking song.
    I don't know if alot of people will like it though. Especially alot of the people who think they love Incubus now because of Anna Molly. This is the true Incubus.
    Either way though. I love this flippin' song.

    General CommentSkry, you may like the song, but you can't constrict this song to what Incubus. Because incubus is so much more than this song.
