"Twilight" as written by and Emily Haines Joshua Winstead....
Did they tell you, you should grow up
When you wanted to dream.
Did they warn you, better shape up
If you want to succeed
I don't know about you, who are they talking to?
They aren't talking to me.

I'm higher than high
Lower than deep,
I'm doing it wrong
And singing along

Go higher than high, lower than deep
Keep doing it wrong and singing along

Did I ask you for attention
When affection is what I need
Thinking sorrow is perfection,
I'd wallow 'til you told me
There's no glitter in the gutter,
There's no twilight galaxy.

Go higher than high, oh
Lower than deep, oh
Keep doing it wrong, oh
Singing along, oh

I'm higher than high, oh
Lower than deep, oh
Doing it wrong, oh
And singing along, oh

I'm alright, c'mon baby
I've seen all the demons that you've got.
If you're not alright, now c'mon baby
I'll pick you up and take you where you want
Anywhere you want
Anywhere you want
Anywhere you want
Anything you want

I'm higher than high, oh
Lower than deep, oh
Doing it wrong, oh
And singing along, oh

Higher than high, oh
Lower than deep, oh
Doing it wrong, oh
Singing along, oh

    General CommentHow you gonna talk?
    You got tunnel vision
    _____ decisions
    Stupid _____
    'Til somebody wakes you up

    i think that the bridge is actually:

    How you gonna tell
    You got tunnel vision
    stark decisions
    that start in the dark

    by the way i looooove the bridge, its awesome.

    General Commenta lot of the new metric songs seem to go along the lines of what happens when you kinda reach a goal in music, i think. or how you're going to make it in music and what you're going to do with it once you get there etcetc

    i think, anyway.

    General CommentI just listened to the Sound Academy's live version. It blew me away. I'm still under this weird, fuzzy amazement. Pure ecstasy.

    "Go higher than high,
    Go lower than deep"
    hehe, genius

    Not that kind of a song, that I'd want to take by pieces and "unmetaphor" =} But it's a whole emotional spectrum and empathy that comes from it. It's just beautiful.

    General Commentmetric's message throughout their career has always been to go against how society tells you to live your life, get a 9-5, buy a car, buy a home, raise family, etc. majority of people fall into this trap and try to impose it on others, but these are the same ppl who never followed their dreams in the first place. the song is the essence of metric.
