"Highland's Apparition" as written by and Peter/loeffler Loeffler....
See it, startled
Afternoon I had to ask
Or dare I, ever know
Tell us, we are demented
Watch as attention span
Hold, so fast
Then go up in smoke

I don't think you're nervous enough
It happened to show its own face
Search for the soulless ends
Now point him towards rest

Culprits, shudder
Apparitions left in time
If we're honest, sight unknown
Crowing, frozen, bedroom
Awoke up certain
Lays a tomb, her tree holds it
Unbeknownst, still sending chills

I don't think you're nervous enough
It happened to show its own face
Search for the soulless ends
Now point him towards rest

You won't find me curling up
A place that should make sense
Well, excuse me for this better judgment
Night is so worth waiting for
A blinding scare so cauterizing
Arms out pointing, sit and stare
At this proof, this living proof
This proof, this living proof

Sun's up, braver
Hands and legs untouched
Before we forget, save this
Unaging proof

I don't think you're nervous enough
It happened to show its own face
Search for the soulless ends
Now point him towards

I don't think you're nervous enough
It happened to show its own face
Search for the soulless ends
Now point him towards rest

    General Commentthis song is actually about a sort of haunting they had in the first house they bought together. The house was on highland st. hence the name of the song.

    Awoke up certain lays a tomb
    Her tree holds it
    Unbeknownst still sending chills

    the body of the previous owners father was buried under a tree in there yard. the line " Unbeknownst still sending chills" refers to how each of them felt like they were being touched while they were sleeping, giving them the chills. they were in an interview thing on Octane, where they explained their album

    Song MeaningYea, frodriguez is correct.
    I live in Virginia, and the band did a 45 minute interview with Elliot in the Morning and they explained the song as pertaining to a house they lived in.
    Sam and Pete were working drywall at the time in Chicago, and had parties often. They said when friends would stay at the house after a party, they'd wake up and explain the same nightmares they had that other friends had who had stayed in the house, too.
    Pete said they knew about the hauntings but never told their friends, which is hilarious.
    They explained that sometimes it'd look like people were walking into the rooms they were sleeping in, and often felt chills and being touched in the house, commonly at night.
    Pete also said that one day a woman was dancing in the front lawn and he asked "Can I help you?" The woman smiled, asked to come into the house because she used to live there and said her father and cat were buried under the tree in the back yard... They didn't let her in.
    Anyways, everything I explained comes right from the interview and you can see it in the lyrics.

    General CommentThis song rules, it's tied for my favorite off the new album. The song sounds like how you have to get through be nervous to do things, but still be nervous to be normal. IDK, maybe?

    General CommentYeah, like you're already to do something. Idk lol.
    Like you see something new that you've never experienced before
    And you're not even nervous when you're looking at it in the face
    You're just brave without fear or that fear of not understanding.
    You're just ready without the butterflies.
    Ex: Like your first day of school lol, everyone's usually nervous but
    maybe there's always that one kid who's just ready or something.


    Lol, aside from that, I'm positive on every lyric I typed except for the word
    in the end of the chorus "Now pointing [towards]" and the words in the breakdown,
    "[I'm still pointing], sit and stare". The words in the brackets are the ones I'm uncertain of.

    General CommentHere's the lyrics from the album

    See it
    Startled
    Afternoon I had to ask
    Or dare I, ever know
    Tell us
    We are demented
    Watch as attention span
    Hold so fast
    Then go up in smoke

    I don't think you're
    Nervous enough
    It happened to show its own face
    Search for the soulless ends
    No point him towards rest

    Cuplrits, shudder
    Apparitions left in time
    If we're honest, sight unknown
    Crowing, frozen, bedroom
    Awoke up certain lays a tomb
    Her tree holds it
    Unbeknownst still sending chills

    You won't find me curling up
    A place that should make sense
    Well excuse me for this
    Better judgment
    Night is so worth waiting for
    A blinding scare so cauterizing
    Arms out pointing sit and stare at
    This proof
    This living proof
    This proof
    This living proof

    Sun's up
    Braver
    Hands and legs untouched
    Before we forget
    Save this
    Unaging proof

    General CommentCan't have a bad trip with pot really, so maybe acid or something if it was about a drug.
    However, I think the UFO meaning is better. After re-reading the lyrics thinking about UFO's, it sounds like it could be about an alien encounter.
