"Isle of the Cheetah" as written by Jeffery Dimpsey, Tim Lash, Bryan St. Pere and Matt Talbott....
She's just along for the ride
Wings melt and we hide
All this means nothing to the sun
Are we leaking this one

Mine comes true here
Bruised, expanding clear
Mine full of you here
I won't claim (?) in the sun

Are we leaving this one
And swift out, she goes to the last frame
Short lives and long days in a fast state
Then we'll lay way to you

Your ocean spreads out on sunbeams
Radiant, knowing
And your hand looks so nice in mine
And its been a thousand new seams since inception

And radiant, glowing
They say that we're doing fine
And your ocean spreads out on sunbeams
Radiant, knowing

And your hand looks so nice in mine
And the new-come struggle has both of us
Stapled to the island for awhile.
And they say that we're doing fine

    "Isle Of The Cheetah"

    Chance brought me down on your side, she's just along for the ride.
    Wings melt and we hide, and all this means nothing to the sun.
    Are we leaving this one?

    Mine comes true here, bruised, expanding clear.
    Mind full of you here, I won't claim losses in the sun.
    Are we leaving this one?

    And swift out, she goes to the last frame.
    Short lives and long days and if I stay, then we'll lay way to you.

    Your ocean spreads out on sunbeams, radiant, knowing.
    And your hand looks so nice in mine.
    And its been a thousand years seen since inception, and you're radiant, glowing.
    And they say that you're doing fine.

    Your ocean spreads out on sunbeams, radiant, knowing.
    Your hand looks so nice in mine.
    And the new construct will have both of us, stapled to the island for awhile.
    And they say that you're doing fine.

    General Commentthis song.. so awesome
    especially the bridge, what with that chugging bass and the solo with the harmonics. Awesome.

    General CommentThis is the greatest song ever. 'Downward Is Heavenward' is one of those awesome albums that you can listen to all the way through. Hum = Rock Gods.

    General CommentHum lyrics (especially on this album) are usually a scientific slant towards the ineffability of the human experience. Anyone who has experienced psychedelic (or otherwise) ego loss should understand that the best way to explain the mystery of life is to not even try.
