"Air Traffic" as written by and Adam R. Young....
The bird is here and we are off
To wherever those wings take us
The atmosphere is crawling with airlines
That wind through the clouds
And look down at the crowds
Relax your back and let the noise
Sing you to sleep in my arms
If you awake before we arrive
I will carry you down and I won?t make a sound

The scent is strong as we move on
And breathe in the pristine crime scene
The false veneer is old like a sub stick to volunteer
From oh some other year
I'm just a shell as far as I can tell
So I paint my eyes a light green
The silver beams are twirling and swirling
Throughout your dreams
Like air traffic streams

    My Interpretation"The bird is here, and we are off to wherever those wings take us" is relating how we can take to the sky by airplanes to how we can leave the Earth into dreams. They are not nessecarily with each other. They are just dreaming about each other on the same night.
    "Relax your back and let the noise sing you to sleep in my arms" is relating to the airplane's engine sound and Adam's insomnia.
    The second stanza describes how they follow into the dream and the magical fantasy in the dreams are open and limitless. You can go anywhere you want in them. Just like Air Travel. "The silver beams (metaphor to dreams) are twirling and swirling throughout your dreams (dropping a clue) like air traffic streams."

    General CommentIt's funny, I read a book about a girl who loves flying who likes a boy whose dad is in the Airforce (not true), and how they fell in love. Perfect love song for the 'flying' couple.

    General CommentThe first paragraph describes a plane trip, idk what the next part is about. I was thinking maybe its about when they land, bit its hard to decipher

    General CommentThere's a clear little mistake in the lyrics. Though it doesn't change the meaning. lol
    The atmosphere is crawling with airlines
    That wind through the clouds
    And look down ON the crowds ..

    Anyway, this song's really relaxing and cute. Well of course all of his songs are fantastic! <3
