"Golden Sand" as written by and John Adam/jankowski Mcgill....
Break ground, buckle down, it's time
Yeah, it's time for the party to make some sound
Let's move from underground
Shed some of this black light to surrounding towns

How much responsibility do you bear
For the ill uses others might make of your ideas?
Almost as much responsibility that you'd bear
If you failed to speak your mind

When it might have made some kind of a difference
So make a difference and could you make 'em dance
Turn your bleeding hearts into some bleeding hands?

Line up, state your name, state your claims
Claim your stakes if you wanna fight with us
You've got to refuse to please the game, look ahead now
Oh let the countdown usher the philanthropic mimes to speak up now
And scrape the paint that hides the crimes of a silent kind

Look up and make a difference
But the right difference would mean
The bleeding hearts got to be turned
Into some bleeding hands from solid lands

Yeah, you can make 'em dance and keep an upright stance?
Is the position that you hold, one that could parallel
A synergistically greater plan
Or would it force us all to be packed into a can?

How much responsibility do you bear
For the ill uses that the others might make of your ideas?
Almost as much responsibility that you'd bear
If you failed to speak your mind

When it might have changed things
Let's move from this underground
Blare some of this black light through their socket pride
Where their eyes used to hide when they had sight
Now only serving as a path for us to maybe reach that height

With a word to make a difference
Come on, let's make 'em dance
Turn our bleeding hearts
Into the bleeding hands of the solid lands

Now, can you make 'em dance and keep an upright stance?
Or has the premise of your cause
Been rooted in a sloping, quickly given golden sand?

'Cause the collapse you'd cause
Could pull us down with claws that don't let go
Yeah, the collapse you'd cause
Could pull us down with claws that don't let go

    General Commentthis is easily my favourite from this album
    its such a cool track

    as far as meaning goes, the beginning sounds like a big call to action
    "its time for the party to make some sound; lets move from underground"

    i love the line "turn our bleedin hearts into some bleedin hands"
    essentially: translate your emotion into action
    its a cool theme

    but as far as the finer details i'm not sure
    the end is more of a warning
    "has the premise of your cause been rooted in a sloping, quickly giving (not given i think) golden sand"

    the diction is very precise
    i know i'm missing a lot so i wanna hear what others have to say
