"David Comes To Life" as written by and Falco Miranda....
David was a boy, just a letch,
A simple means of birth, oh so sick,
Another wasted life, like so many before,
But David wanted better, so much more

David’s got a feeling, earthly bounds are retreating,
He’s gonna get to heaven tonight
David’s got a feeling, earthly bounds are retreating
All he has to do is step into the light

The promise of heaven out of reach.
With expectations he couldn’t meet
But David found a way to jump the line
A back door in to a life divine,

Death comes swiftly, for those who wait,
But he’s just like the rest of us, an impatient ingrate

    General CommentTo me, this seems like a song about taking drugs as a shortcut to a higher conscience. It makes sense, Damian Abraham is straight edge as far as I know.

    General CommentI always thought that this was a song about suicide.

    General CommentI hear it more as a dream and less about drugs or suicide, though both of those could be involved... Mostly basing this off of the female vocals singing softly: "David its time to get up." Could be awakening from a dream or from a suicide attempt or drug induced coma though I suppose.

    General CommentI think the great thing about this song is that it can apply to so many things... generally: the quest for god / higher understanding, but that can manifest itself as drugs use, religion, relationships, blowing up a factory that makes lightbulbs (LOL) etc.. anything used with the expectation of "jumping the line" David is a flawed character.. just like the rest of us.
