"Absolutely Still" as written by Jeremy Branum Lister, Kevin Griffin, Kelly Owens and Johnny Andrews....
This gray room,
This bunker,
The air is humming
Us to sleep

While outside,
The city hurries;
The endless worries
Are out of reach

Promise me we'll never leave this room,
A million years from now would be too soon.

The world is spinning turning day to night
And my thoughts are running at the speed of light
Got an empty feeling that I never want to fill
Absolutely still
I waited longer 'cause I needed proof
That every door I shut is leading me to you
And there's a nervous feeling that I never want to kill
Absolutely still

We were running
From the same noise,
We were stuck in
The same pursuit

Now the door's locked
And I find that
The dizzy madness
Is bleeding through

Promise me you'll never leave this room,
A million years from now would be too soon.

The world is spinning turning day to night
And my thoughts are running at the speed of light
Got an empty feeling that I never want to fill
Absolutely still
I waited longer 'cause I needed proof
That every door I shut is leading me to you
And there's a nervous feeling that I never want to kill
Absolutely still

I'll go anywhere you want tonight
'cause my head is spinning like a satellite
I got a restless feeling that I never want to fill
I'm absolutely still

    General Commentyay first comment. i'm just going to guess without REALLY analyzing the lyrics that this song is about loving someone and never wanting to stop. even when everything is chaotic there is that one person who makes all of the mess feel like it's okay.

    i'm a rookie.

    General CommentI love this song, definitely my favorite off the new album which generally disappointed me actually.
    Anyway i love this song

    To me, it shows that feeling you get/have when you're waking up next to the person who you love and just want to spend the rest of your life with. It just feels like you want to be with them forever, you just wish everything would stay Absolutely Still.

    I think the "door" metaphor symbolizes them being together, as "every door I shut is leading me to you", but now the door's locked meaning they're to be together forever, and he just wishes everything would stay Absolutely Still. Again great song. I've always loved Better Than Ezra and saw them live a few years ago.

    General CommentAnother great song from Better than Ezra. Not sure what to think of the lyrics, but the singing and production are both melodically comforting and rocked out. However, this song, especially the beginning, sounds very similar to The Calling's Song "Wherever You Will Go". Did they realize this?
