"Earthless" as written by and Maida....
I know this girl
As pretty as can be
The sign of an Aquarius
She was born on the 18th
UFOs, snakes and spiders
Give her the creeps
And she's got a half life, a half smile
And lives in semi luxury
Questions God, drugs and bullets
And the high school beauty queen
And she's courageous but scared to death
But that's what courage means

She's looking for some courage
She feels faithless, she feels earthless
She wants to run
She's strugglin' for purpose
I tell her hang in you know it's worth it
You've just begun
You've just begun

Her bedroom is her temple
The books and the stereo her muse
She feels humbled by this equation
And sets fire to all her shoes
Not because of Henry Miller
She's just not leaving anytime soon
And as the smoke pours out her window
An image forms behind the moon
And it looks like the face of Jesus
But if it's Jesus she needs proof
At the heart of the matter, and a matter of fact
The science of matter
She hopes that it's true

She's looking for some courage
She feels faithless, she feels earthless
She wants to run
She's strugglin' for purpose
I tell her hang in you know it?s worth it
You've just begun
You've just begun
And you've just begun

    General Commenti love this song. the way he sings it, it's like he's reciting poetry. i know music is basically poetry to music, but this is different. prose maybe? utterly beautiful.

    General CommentThis Song is very beautiful. I think that it's aboout a girl that's very important in Raine's life. a Girl that is lost and confused.

    "And it looks like the face of Jesus But if it's face of Jesus she needs proof"

    She questions all aspects of life and doesn't want to be the sterotypical girl in society.

    The way Raine recites the lines, he tells you a story. I really love the style of the lyric and the way he sings it.

    Very Poetic...

    General CommentThis song really stood out when I listened to The Hunters Lullaby. It spoke to me. Raine is a great lyricist, a great musician, and a great singer. He really has a way with words. I'm listening to this right now. And I feel shivers.

    It's about a girl, who is confused, and doesn't know her meaning in life. She's very scared, but toughs it out.

    This song reminds me of me. :S
