"Granite" as written by and Maurice Joseph Ravel....
You can hide your eyes you can dim the lights but they are watching!
This is a new time with a different kind they are the future
The only one!

This is the final call for the setting sun when they get closer.
And with a fall from grace thy will be done the show is over.
It's a new dawn!

Just leave this place behind
I'll clear your bloodshot mind.
They only wanted your love on demand.
This is a better way!

We are standing by no time to hide no meeting half way.
You were sucking life through the needles eye this is a new day.
They have won!

We will surrender now or be outdone left in the open.
It's the cooling of horizon they are the future.
The future!

When all your fears combined the manifest was refined
And I know you really tried to understand.
This is a new way!

    General Commentafter listening to the .flac version here's what I've got, I think it's better than the above interpretation.

    You can hide your eyes, you can dim the lights, but they are watching.
    This is a new time with a different kind, they are the future.
    The only one.

    It's a final call for the setting sun, when they get closer.
    And with a fall from grace, thy will be done, the show is over.
    It's a new dawn.

    Just leave this place behind.
    I will clear your bloodshot mind.
    They only wanted your love on demand.
    This is a better way!

    We are standing by, no time to hide, no meeting half way.
    You were sucking life through the needles eye, this is a new day.
    And they have won!

    We will surrender now, what we have done, left in the open.
    The cool we know will rise up, they are the future.
    Future!

    When all your fears combined, the manifest was refined.
    And I know you really tried to understand:
    This is a new way!



    One of my favorite songs, so I listened extensively.

    General CommentI think the music video pretty much explains it: it's about an alien apocalypse! Except I don't see why it's called "Granite..."

    General Commentthis songs pretty obvious really, life as we know it has changed and all that shit, aliens are here and what not. to be honest it's the music that counts and this tune really delivers.

    General CommentNice call Arsekicker, much better lyrics than the ones on top. "...I'll grill your place, don't mind..."? Come on, I'm sure Pendulum can come up with lyrics better than that.

    General CommentWW: What about the references in “Granite” to a “new way” and a “new dawn”? What was your focus there?

    RS: This was around the time of Hurricane Katrina happened. There was all this shit in the world that was changing on such a massive scale, and it was the first time I’d ever seen an entire city flooded out. It was a sense of being invaded by something. It got into our head, that feeling.
