The Earth,
It spins. It shakes.
It spits you out.
It knows your name.

You were there for me every time we breathe
I know the best things in life are free.
You and me were having a drink and sharing a smoke.

Magic is magic, 'til you know it's a trick.
You cannot trade, you cannot trade it back.

The Earth,
It spins. It shakes.
It spits you out.
It knows your name.

Everything I have ever done wrong somehow would mount to this,
What I'm feeling in my chest, the burning fire of my fear of death.

I watched the lightning in the sky.
I couldn't take my mind off the afterlife
As music filled the air.

It hit me like a heart attack...

    General Commentboring for you.
    awesome for me.

    I love how fear before doesn't linger
    their lyrics to broken relationships like others.
    these lyrics are a mirror to what consumes my thoughts.
    LOVE it.

    General CommentNot sure but could one line read:

    Everything I have ever done wrong somehow would mount to this,

    As for Dave at the end, can't make out much.
    Possibly this is part of the beginning:

    They hear me like a heart attack
    And you don't have to care about it book by book

    I think I'm terribly wrong however :|

    General Commenti definitely like this song it takes a while but it does grow on you
    fear before's lyrics are getting alot deeper it seems like these guys are starting to really think about some shit especially their own mortalility. This song to me is about Why humans need religion (the "magic is magic" line is what im referring too) and how funny and strange of a thing life is, and especially death.
