"The Earth Isn't Humming" as written by and Edward Carrington Breckenridge Teppei Teranishi....
I hear these times are the end.
And another one must fall down.
I don't think I believe it.
When another one must fall down.
Give us the distance.
And another one will fall down.

The sun in the open sky.
Fall down, fall down
Stare back into my own eyes.
Fall down, fall down
A stranger in my own skin.
Fall down, fall down

One decade later.
And another one must fall down.
The earth isn't humming.
I watched them all fall down.
Fell into the sound in front of me.
Unchanged by those around.
Directionless.
An open sea.
We'll watch as time tumbles down.

The sun in the open sky.
Fall down, fall down
Stare back into my own eyes.
Fall down, fall down
A stranger in my own skin.
Fall down, fall down

[x6]
Fall down

    General CommentPersonally, I think it relates to a war. Possibly between the Korean and Vietnam war (One decade later/
    And another one must fall down). I think its a child, or teenager living in a city during the time of war, and watches how buildings around him are collapsing.

    "The sun in the open sky" could mean that he was living in a city, whose buildings are collapsing, and the horizon is now clear. He escapes the first war (before "decades later"), and while in his new home, another war starts, and he remembers his past.

    "The earth isn't humming" could mean that his parents didn't want him to know what was going on, when he was young, and told him that the earth was humming.
