Look into the light
What do you see?
Yellow burns orange-now blue and green
Phantoms in your vision over all that you see

The damage is done to your desperate life
but you love the feeling and won't be denied

Once is Enough
The moment passes
Echoes and rings
You see the color
You hear the song sing

1 - 2 - 3
H THE B (x4)

HORSE THE BAND! (x3)
HORSE THE MOTHERFUCKING BAND MOTHERFUCKERS!

Like a meteor strike! Atomizing everything in a sphere of
light
Like a lion attack! Teeth and claws covered with the meat
of your back

It cuts you up just to try
How do you sleep at night?

It cuts me up every time
and I don't know why.

Come on! Come on! Come on!
This is like an earthquake! Find you balance and start to
shake

come on! Come on! Come on!
Like an exploding sun... everything is done..

It cuts you up just to try
How do you sleep at night?

It cuts me up every time
and i don't know why.

Living at the top
Living at the top
Living at the top
WHEN YOU'RE AT THE FUCKING BOTTOM.

    Song Meaningwell, ill take a stab at this

    honestly it sounds like nathans talking about mutual experiences between him and the crowd during shows

    referencing lights and the feeling you get being on stage saying that he loves performing and being in htb

    however theres also a side that says its a love-hate relationship and it cuts him up that even though he loves what he does, all that seem to come HTB's way is bullshit and misfortune, not to mention they tour almost constantly, and thats probably hard for him especially since hes mentioned in multiple interviews that his girlfriend is like the light of his life and hes head over heels for her

    so i hear alot of conflict in this one.....do what you love, but at what cost?

    just my thought though

    General CommentWho does the "horse the mother fucking band mother fucker" line?

    Anyway, I would say that this song is about a few things. The first of which is accidentally hurting yourself, but then realizing that you like it. The beginning surfaces to staring at the sun, but it is probably more about a relationship (with a person, or yeah, maybe with the fans). The second is a quick and brutal demise. The third seems kind of like introspection dealing with how to deal with the first two.
