"Collide" as written by Robert Patrick Conlon, Alexander John Gowers, Erik Kertes and Shaun Smith....
Playing my part in the dream
Light shines through cracks in a scream

The sun, the sky
Are brighter in your eyes,
We live, we die
Not knowing why.
A scratch, a bite
And then a flash of light,
As worlds collide
It's you and I.

I’m just a ghost in a shell
Finding your heaven in hell

The sun, the sky
Are brighter in your eyes,
We live, we die
Not knowing why.
A scratch, a bite
And then a flash of light,
As worlds collide
It's you and I.

Time and tide,
When worlds collide,
Tomorrow comes today.

First to last,
When future's past,
Is here with me to stay…

Playing my part in the dream
Light shines through cracks in a scream

The sun, the sky
Are brighter in your eyes,
We live, we die
Not knowing why.
A scratch, a bite
And then a flash of light,
As world's collide
It's you and I.

    General CommentWHAT!?!? I'm the onle comment here! This is one of my top 5 favorite songs! Anarchy Club's not too great, but this is a master piece. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU HATERS!!! LOL, just kidding 'bout that, but this is a great song.

    ANY WAYS.... I think this is about life and how cold and lonely it is. Or at least that's the way the singer feels in this song. They're saying that everything seems better ("brighter")in other peoples eyes. I'm not too sure if he's saying they have more faith or if he thinks their life is better.
    Ultimately, I think it's about him just living life (living my life in the dream) and dying. Where life is just some dream. The passage of time never stops flowing, then death comes. This is the flash of light and the transition between worlds (life and death) collide for a brief moment. This happens to everyone, we will all be dead at some point. It's you and I.

    General Commenti agree, but how would you explain "a scratch a bite" part?

    General CommentThis song was described on guitar hero as something like a love song for the end of the world. Considering one of the band memebers is actually one of the makers of the game, I would come to think that they'd have this right. So my vote's for that one.

    General Commentokay i'm i like The Oracle's take on this song it fits really well. As for no limit24's
    suggestion, I like the sound of that one to. I guess it just comes down to finding your
    own meaning, The one that fits for you.
