"Dear Lucid, Our Time Is Right Now" as written by and Kevin James Clarkson Joseph Daniel Lauzon....
My word for dark rhymes
With your word for light and
It's not quite as pretty
as the pictures you painted
But those were just afterthoughts
And all your fates are after us
I think they're after our heads

Dear lucid, my time is right...

Dance away, where the bullets fly
You know they come so close
Oh, but they put something in the air tonight
Just to light your face

Now both at the sky like
Are fireworks just like
The ones that ignited
The first time our eyes met
But this time it's over wars
Your payback, you're wanting more
Is gonna make this all over for us

Dear Lucid, your time is right...

Dance away, oh where the bullets fly
You know they come so close
Oh, but they put something in the air tonight
Just to light your face

For me

Dear Lucid, our time is right now

Dance away
They'll have the bullets fly
You know they come so close
(Oh fix this impossibility)
I be they put something in the air tonight
(Oh, and it's crushing your throat)
So we can dance away
(Will you fight for your agenda)
where the bullets fly
(or will you fight for air?)

Dance away, oh where the bullets fly
You know they come so close
Oh, but they put something in the air tonight
So we could dance away
Where the bullets fly
I know they look so close
Oh, but they put something in the air tonight
Just to light your face

For me

Dear Lucid

    General Commenti believe that Lucid is a womans name, like 'Blessed' from the first album, so-on-and-so-forth.

    General CommentFirst off this is my favorite Evans Blue song now. I love it. I think this song is about is about breaking up,

    "Now both at the sky like
    Are fireworks just like
    The ones that ignited
    The first time our eyes met
    But this time it's over wars
    Your payback, you're wanting more
    Is gonna make this all over for us"

    But everytime the end is in sight and they are fighting,

    "Dance away, oh where the bullets fly
    You know they come so close"

    They realise they really do love each other and it makes the guy realise just how lovely she is,

    "Oh, but they put something in the air tonight
    Just to light your face"

    I know it's probally way off, but that's what I think.

    General Commentsome minor corrections from the booklet:
    1st verse: "But those were just afterthoughts, and all new thieves are after us"

    The chorus is: "Dance away while the bullets fly... I'll bet they put something in the air tonight"

    Start of the 2nd verse: "Now bombs light the sky like, our fireworks just like..." (which is the start of my favorite line in the song)

    The backing part in the third verse: "Who will fix this impossibility, when it's crushing your throat?"

    Yeah, I'd agree with Markie that it's about a breakup. A really messy breakup, at that.

    General CommentThat is my favorite line too, it sounds so...any way I put it is understated. Yes most definitely a break-up, most songs are. I don't think Theory of a Dead Man has a single one focused on anything else. Not that I'm complaining, they're an amazing band, just a little one-tracked.

    General CommentHonestly, I don't see it as a breakup. Rather a relationship that pretty much everyone, but the couple, doesn't think highly of.

    In the first set, he covers that even they don't have it clearly hashed out what their relationship is about or for. But even though everyone is gunning for them to break up, and the bullets (gossip? rumors?) fly, he begins to see her for who she is and while their relationship is gonna end... rather badly, at that... he finally has a clear idea of what he wants out of a relationship.

    He's found that lucid moment.
