"The Flight of Apollo" as written by Tom Delonge and Adam Willard....
I'm flying, and somethings reaching out
Vibrations, can you hear them now
Please help us, were running out of time
My brothers, we are deathly out of line
I feel you, on a far off distant land
We fucked up, lets give ourselves a hand
Its over. From the heavens look down
Our footsteps, gods coming around

Gotta make like a cat theif's caught in the line
Its gotta sound like a gunshot over and over
Ive gotta voice so lost off back in my head
It takes the heart rate up then down even more
Ive got my friends face down like a kid in the dark
They've got the same fear built up more even more
Ive let my eyes bright up like a predator shark
To let my mind close down every hour by hour

Finally I get this feeling were all alone in one big world
Just to realize that all these shapes and colors are so it doesn't hurt so badly
So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly, so life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly. Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly

Do you feel light shine in the darkest of nights, or does the Pain stack up from the skin to the core
Do you find every time that you cover your eyes to keep the tears held up, dripping down even more
Let the words come down, every line in sight and put the young flames up and make you cower and cower
If the sun breaks in instead of sparkin' the sight, I promise you Ill be here to let the light in

Finally I get this feeling were all alone in one big world
Just to realize that all these shapes and colors are so it doesn't hurt so badly
So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly, so life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly. Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly

I'm flying and somethings reaching out
Vibrations, can you hear them now
Please help us, from the heavens look down
Our footsteps, gods coming around

So life doesn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly, so life doesn't Hurt, doesn't hurt so badly
Please don't look at life, look at me so sadly. Life shouldn't hurt, doesn't hurt so badly

Gotta make like a cat theif's caught in the line
Its gotta sound like a gunshot over and over
Ive gotta voice so lost off back in my head
It takes the heart rate up then down even more
Ive got my friends face down like a kid in the dark
They've got the same fear built up more even more
Ive let my eyes bright up like a predator shark
To let my mind close down every hour by hour

Do you feel light shine in the darkest of nights, or does the Pain stack up from the skin to the core
Do you find every time that you cover your eyes to keep the tears held up, dripping down even more
Let the words come down, every line in sight and put the young flames up and make you cower and cower
If the sun breaks in instead of sparkin' the sight, I promise you Ill be here to let the light in

    General CommentI think that it's kind of about looking back and seeing that you've made mistakes and that you haven't done anything about it and just tried to get others to fix them but they can't change the things that you've done. But then you finally can like work up the strength to try to make a difference and fix things and you find out that you can't change what you've already done, but even just trying to reach out to these people that you've hurt or whatever can make both of you feel better even though nothings really changed.

    General CommentI dont know about you guys, but I like to think this whole album as a storyline. I knew it was a storyline even before they annnouncened they would make a movie with the same name.

    In this particular one the lyrics sound like they are talking about a guy (?Lee?) that is shut out from the world.

    Im floating, and somethings reaching out
    "Vibrations, can you hear them now
    Please help us, from the heavens on down
    Our footsteps, gods coming around"



    He comes to realise that his life wasnt actually that bad and that he took advantage of living.

    "Finally I get this feeling were all alone in one big world
    Just to realize that all these shapes and colors are so it doesnt hurt so badly"

    but thats my two cents and I could be wrong..but I love to think of the song in this way.

    General CommentThe beginning is absolutely epic.

    Meaning wise, I'm having some trouble with it. Anyone care to put their two cents in?

    General Commenti read somewhere that the line "We fucked up, let's give ourselves a hand It's over" MIGHT be about how Tom is going to leave AVA once he gets back with blink again. i hope that isnt true.

    but i think that line in particular is about how tom and mark got into a fight but they made up and their fight is over.

    overall i think the songs basically about (A) just doing good deeds to make peoples life better and (B) that life isnt that bad.

    not a great interpretation but thats all i can think of

    General CommentThe beginning is the best part of this song. This is just one of the many favorites on the album. But ahh the meaning. What I get is that this is about being shut off from the world. Your all alone, and you only have the time to ponder on mistakes youve made and regrets you have and it builds up..... However this song is about the realization that there is a bigger picture and that there WILL be someone to help you through it all. And the light will shine through your darkness. It all probably deals with the movie, where the one guy is stranded by himself in space.

    General Commenti read somewhere that the line "We fucked up, let's give ourselves a hand It's over" MIGHT be Tom telling us that he is going to leave AVA once he gets back with blink again. i hope that isnt true.

    but i think that line in particular is about how tom and mark got into a fight but they made up and now its over.

    overall i think the songs basically about (A) just doing good deeds to make peoples life better and (B) that life isnt that bad.

    not a great interpretation but thats all i can think of

    General CommentI don't know about you guys but I was taken by surprise with the pitch drop at "god's coming around".

    I think it was a bit of a joke too, because they're trying to tell their audience through their music is for real now, it's not going to be like the last two albums.

    No offense intended in the last statement. AVA brought their music to the next level with this album.
