"Balance" as written by and Michael/white Jagmin....
Our differences set us apart, they can't bind me
Our hearts have been equivalent from the start, if only
I spoke these words at the right time
At a loss for words to build the right line

Reflect a traitor to make my mind cry open
Behave, like gentlemen, like proper men we dive in
Live, you'll be the proof of my existence
My pride my dreams
They all belong just to me

So alive we coexist, so envious, we pray for this

Listen to my story, this may be our last chance
People die and people dance

Reflect a traitor to make my mind cry open
Behave, like gentlemen, like proper men we dive in
Live, you'll be the proof of my existence
My pride and dreams
They all belong just to me

So alive we coexist, so envious, we pray for this

Listen to my story, this may be our last chance
People die and people dance

    General Commentthe composure used in this song is just amazing in my opinion...

    the guitar digital delay in the outro is INCREDIBLY catchy and well-written. Not to mention original as fuck.

    I love this band. They're all really down to earth and super cool. I met all of them minus the drummer (although he seemed cool when I was screaming shit at him during sound check and he always replied with a smirk and stuff).

    General Comment"People die and people dance"

    Obviously direct Final Fantasy connection there, lol. Like how when you finish a battle and the characters start to dance and that victory song plays.

    General CommentJag says in an interview this song is about two people who work at the same profession and their both almost equally as good, but one knows that the other is better so therefor he ends up killing him.
    Then after he kills him, the rest of the song is about how he knows that the other man was better at what they did, and what he would've said to him if he hadn't killed him.

    General Commenti think the "people die and people dance" line is referring to how summoners in ffx perform a dance to send the souls of the dead to the farplane

    and the line "listen to my story this may be our last chance" is said by the main character of the game frequently

    General CommentThe FFX connection here CAN'T just be a coninscidence. Especially because they've even said in interviews they're FF freaks. The line "listen to my story this may be our last chance" is directly from the first phrase in the game, and "people die and people dance" probably pertains to the sendings. AND "So alive we coexist, so envious we pray for this" could be about how Tidus is stranded and ends up praying on many occasions, displaying a loss of hope and submission to outlandish customs he obviously doesn't believe in. I could go on, but I'm gonna stop being a nerd ^_^

    General CommentIs it definitely "like proper men we dive in"? I've always heard it as "like proper men we die now", which seems to follow onto "live...you'll be the proof of my existence" considerably better in my mind.

    Can any bigger fans than me that have the booklet lyrics or whatever help me out? :P

    This is my favourite song off the album, I agree with ShinjiruX5's link to Crisis Core as well.
