"Fingers" as written by and Bixler Stolte....
Transform our hearts
Into melody
And remove the parts
Then the tragedy

And I'll build a wall underneath the sea
To look over your shoulder
Look over your shoulder
Look over your shoulder just to see

All your enemies
Watching you watching me

(it's the weight of the world that we're on to,
It's the weight of the world.
It's the weight of the world that we're on to,
It's the weight of the world.)

We've left our hands
With no escape
And our hearts are tied
Tied to his me

And if we let them go
Will we break
Mmmâ?¦ mmmâ?¦

(chorus)

It's the weight of the world that we're onto,
It's the weight of the world that we're standing on
It's the weight of the world that we're onto,
It's the weight of the world that we're standing onâ?¦ standing on, I'm not standing on

Come on with your fingers
Come on with your fingers
Come on with your fingers
Don't slow down

Come on with your fingers
Come on with your fingers
Come on with your fingers
Don't slow down

Come on with your fingers
Come on with your fingers
Come on with your fingers
Don't slow down
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

    My InterpretationI think it's probably about attempting to transcend the hard feelings and the weight of everyday life that "Story" and "Houses" explored:

    "Transform our hearts into melody
    Remove the parts, then the tragedy"

    In doing so, we try to go beyond the human condition, but soon enough we find that we're bound to this world after all.

    "We've left our hands with no escape
    And our hearts are tied, tied to this weight
    If we let them go, will we break?"

    The song reaches its climax at the realization that we are small after all, and that our fragile transcendentalism can be destroyed by the merest shrug of the universe.

    "Come out with your fingers, tear us all down"

    The thread that unites the song is the whisper of "it's the weight of the world that we're onto, it's the weight of the world". By the end of the song, one realizes that we can't escape the world we live in with just grand thoughts, or even heartfelt melody - it's part of us, tied to our hearts.
