"Heaven" as written by and Thomas Delonge....
I will run the streets and hostile lands
I will touch the rain with all I have
I will breathe the air, just scream it loud
My feet will never touch the ground
Because the days they feel like ancient clocks
Like when kids grow up and learn to walk
Because your life is full of pure desire
A place so gloriously wired

The lights and sounds
Oh God this is such a mess
And it's like our world
But we're the last ones left
And the hair it stands
On the back of our necks
And I swear it shows
Heaven must be just like this

Do you see the hills beneath the clouds?
The stars and its to lead you out
Can you sense the pain? It's everywhere
And if you try you'll never care
And the love you had
When you were young
Is right outside for all to come
Because your life is full of pure desire
A place so gloriously wired

The lights and sounds
Oh God this is such a mess
And it's like our world
But we're the last ones left
And the hair it stands
On the back of our necks
And I swear it shows
Heaven must be just like this

If you see the light break through the clouds
And fire up the distant towns
Now the world will be begin
Exactly how it ends
When you call for help when you are lost
For evermore or what ever it costs
And the world will begin
Exactly how it ends

Please stay
Don't go
I've got you now
Are you curious?
Please stay

    I will run the streets and hostile lands
    I will touch the rain with all I have
    I will breathe the air, just scream it loud
    My feet will never touch the ground
    Because the days they feel like ancient clocks
    Like when kids grow up and learn to walk
    Because your life is full of pure desire
    A place so gloriously wired

    The lights and sounds
    Oh God this is such a mess
    And it's like our world
    But we're the last ones left
    And the hair it stands
    On the back of our necks
    And I swear it shows
    Heaven must be just like this

    Do you see the hills beneath the clouds?
    The stars and its to lead you out
    Can you sense the pain? It's everywhere
    And if you try you'll never care
    And the love you had
    When you were young
    Is right outside for all to come
    Because your life is full of pure desire
    A life so gloriously wired

    General CommentI love how you can hear "The Adventure" at the beginning of this song and at the very end you can hear the beginning of "Valkyrie Missile"

    delvec, not only can you hear the adventure in the beginning, but you hear excerpts from "valkryie missile" and "start the machine".

    General Commenti just love how this song starts out using bits from "the adventure" "valkyrie missile" and "start the machine". this is the perfect song to end the great album that I-Empire truly is.

    Acoustic Songs: mediafire.com/

    The acoustic songs are in this order:

    The Gift

    It Hurts (Live not acoustic)

    Good Day

    Everythings Magic

    The Adventure

    All of those listed above are acoustic Except for It Hurts, which is live and is REALLY loud.

    General CommentThose drum beats at the start sound like the very start of dont leave me by Blink 182. I Empire is a brilliant album, it seems like tom gave us more of an insight to his personal life for this cd, especially on "Rite of Spring"

    General CommentI've heard some people say that "Heaven" is such an amazing, uplifting song. it is a great song, I have to say. but for some reason, it seems really sad and upsetting. maybe I'm just in a bad mood or maybe I'm interpreting the song the wrong way...

    this line here : "My feet will never touch the ground
    Because the days they feel like ancient clocks" seems like he is in Heaven... with the feeling of weightlessness and the time not being a factor in life.
    and then he goes on to explain how the lights and sounds and isolation is affecting him... and that's when he says "I swear it shows
    Heaven must be just like this" which leads me to the idea that he thinks Heaven won't be such a pleasant place.

    then, he says: "Do you see the hills beneath the clouds?
    The stars and trails to lead you out
    Can you sense the pain? It's everywhere"
    I think he's saying that there's a way out somewhere.. of escaping death (possibly?), but this can't be found... which explains the pain everywhere.

    what I'm confused on is the part where he says : "Now the world will be begin.... Exactly how it ends" is this in darkness?

    what sort of messes up my theory is when Tom sings "are you curious?, please stay. don't go, I've got you now"

    General Comment"I will run the streets and hostile lands
    I will touch the rain with all I have
    I will breathe the air, just scream it loud
    My feet will never touch the ground
    Because the days they feel like ancient clocks

    I believe that this talks about the feeling of innocence and no regrets...almost like as if you were a child again.

    "The lights and sounds
    Oh God this is such a mess
    And it's like our world
    But we're the last ones left
    And the hair it stands
    On the back of our necks
    And I swear it shows
    Heaven must be just like this"

    Almost touches on the subject of the rapture, and how the world will be peaceful right after the rapture happens.

    "Do you see the hills beneath the clouds?
    The stars and its to lead you out
    Can you sense the pain? It's everywhere
    And if you try you'll never care
    And the love you had
    When you were young
    Is right outside for all to come"

    This also kinda touches on the rapture, where the world goes into turmoil while everyone up high is watching carelessly upon what is happening down below.


    "If you see the light break through the clouds
    And fire up the distant towns
    Now the world will be begin
    Exactly how it ends"

    Apocalypse or something similar. Perhaps Sodom and Gomorrah?
