"Eros" as written by Finn Bjarnson, Ryan Raddon, John B. N Hancock ...
Eros prays we build our house upon him.
Sees how well it stands, how long we last
Built upon the sand, on the idol Eros.

So when he’s gone can I do what Eros does?
What he does for us, he does for us.
And when he’s gone can it be the way it was?
Bring him back to us. Is he all we’ve got
Our house built upon? On the idol Eros?

When our haven wavers in the wind
And walls all beg to be abandoned,
Blame the idol Eros.
When the raven calls and all his melodies
All long to be forgotten,
Blame the idol Eros.

What’s left to say but I loved the way it was?
‘Cause I said I would, I’ve done all I could.
See what he’s done to us?
Oh the idol Eros.

When our haven wavers in the wind
And walls all beg to be abandoned,
When the raven calls and all his melodies
All long to be forgotten,

Blame the idol Eros.

    General CommentOmg this song is THE SHIZ!

    Anyways, I think it's how "Eros" represents lust and eroticism and how when a relationship is built solely on that, it's bound to be weak and fall apart. It's like building a house on sand; the foundation is weak and it will eventually fall apart.

    General Commenti agree with simdanes
    it's referring to how lust makes everything waver and how relationships that are based on only that can't stand up for long

    General CommentDid a bit of research on wiki. This song is so good.

    Eros is the greek god of sexual love and beauty.

    The story is told as a digression and structural parallel to the main storyline of Apuleius' novel. It tells of the struggle for love and trust between Eros and Psyche. Aphrodite is jealous of the beauty of mortal Psyche, as men are leaving her altars barren to worship a mere human woman instead, and so commands her son Eros to cause Psyche to fall in love with the ugliest creature on earth. Eros falls in love with Psyche himself and spirits her away to his home. Their fragile peace is ruined by a visit of Psyche's jealous sisters, who cause Psyche to betray the trust of her husband. Wounded, Eros departs from his wife and Psyche wanders the earth, looking for her lost love.
