When lightning hits, you turn and run
Leave it until its done
It's best if you're not there

You probably could, you wish you would
I hope that its understood
Something needs repair

We don't believe, there is no need
To celebrate a thing
Its all the same, you'll talk away
no words to say.....

Leave it on the backdrop you have signed
Blissful fall the winds that whip the tide
Your will is always chased away each time

So weather-worn, you'll find a breath
Sit down and see what's next
The air is full of holes

You're due to fall, don't walk to tall
Cause that would remind us all
To care to take control

We're so relieved you've been retrieved
We'll navigate through nets

You've been gone too long
We knew it was wrong
No more regrets

Leave it on the backdrop you have signed
Blissful fall the winds that whip the tide
Your will is always chased away each time

Releasing from from a grip that's held too tight
There's no other way to open up what's right
The more we try to stay same, the more we lie...

    General CommentThis is a good one, and like most UM songs, the lyrics are not very specific. I take it as they are referring to an old friend who is no longer the same friend the band used to know. He has lost sight of his dreams, his drive, and his will power. When lightning hits (a challenge or obstacle in life), you turn and run --> the challenge is ignored and nothing is gained. I think they are referring to the idea that taking risks will lead to happiness, and who ever they are talking about in this song has lost sight of that. Sometimes i think they might be talking about a government or a person of power and then other times it seems like a friend or family member. What do yall think? And what are you interpretations of the other lyrics in this song?

    UM FAN FOR LIFE!!!
