"Geometry & C" as written by and Christopher Walla....
It used to bother me, all the shapes I can't describe
How we all fit together like wordless versing
And da-dee-dum-dum, da-dee-dum-dum, da-dee-dum
I was there, I saw you searching the corners for your light
But it's not there, it was never there
In files and books, a void of there in your heart fails your mind

This is the geometry, this is the life of you and I
How we fall for a second together and down we're singing
Da-dee-dum-dum, da-dee-dum-dum, da-dee-dum
It's a college, a connection and made to find the light
And it's brighter than we remember it being the last time we tried, we tried

You don't need to speak just now
You should keep it down and let that ticker pound

Let your heart keep the time
Keep the time, keep the time
The loudest part is in control, whoa

Let your heart keep the time
Keep the time, keep the time
The hardest part is letting go, whoa

Let your heart keep the time
Yeah whoa, yeah whoa

Let your heart keep the time
Keep the time, keep the time
The loudest part is in control, whoa

Let your heart keep the time
Keep the time, keep the time
The hardest part is letting go, whoa
Let your heart keep the time

    General Commentthe song is called "Geometry Et Cetera." i have no idea where you got "Geometry & C" from haha.

    and i believe instead of "it's a college, a connection" the lyrics are, "it's a call, it's a connection." it makes a bit more sense, and it's a bit more poetic. no offense. :o)

    but anyway. such a good song. i interpreted it as being about how as you grow up, things get so much more complicated than they used to be... instead of trying to explain things logically and systematically, like in geometry, it's best to let your heart figure things out.

    General Commentwell i got it from Chris Walla's official myspace...
    myspace.com/…

    i looked on fye.com and it does say "Geometry & C." but then i looked on bestbuy.com and it said "Geometry & Co." so i decided that since the discrepencies (sp?) were in those third-party sites i would go with what Chris Walla himself said.

    General CommentChris has been writing songs wayyyyyyyyyyy before Plans. He even sings a few songs on Death Cab's album "You Can Play These Songs With Chords", and it's absolutely magnificent.

    this song is lovely.

    General CommentThe second line should be: "How we all fit together like wordless verse, singing, 'Da-dee-dum-dum...'"

    And the second "it's" is missing from: "It's a call, it's a connection..."
