"Some Origins of Fire" as written by Tom Delonge and Adam Willard....
Cars crash through the streets
The west end waves break city heats
The east coast storms fill in the sky
Winter weekends
Cold, unbearable
Life's so terrible
Shots ring out in blind stellar night time
Town lights come alive like a land mine
Eyes wide up in five second intervals
Unpredictable, lifes a miracle

We all are love and love is hard
Were hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
It breaks my heart
We all are love and love is hard
Were hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
So here's my heart

I cant close my eyes
The east end barrels, its summer time
The west coast lives got butterflies
So literal
Cold, unbearable
Life's so terrible
Kids live fearlessly and curious lives
Grow up to be so serious
Lost time, broken dreams
So usual
Unpredictable, life's a miracle

We all are love and love is hard
Were hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
It breaks my heart
We all are love and love is hard
Were hard to love
We all are love and love is hard
So here's my heart

It's only the cycle
It's deafening though
This age old recital is king of all sounds
There is no release, free, we are silently numb
A sole, lonely wave with the weight that's yet to come

    General Commentthe chorus of this song should give you the meaning of this song and the entire album for that matter.

    "Kids live fearlessly and curious lives
    Grow up to be so serious
    Lost time, broken dreams
    So usual
    Unpredictable, life's a miracle"
    this is so sad because its so true. i think this is what he means when he says "age old recital" in the last part of the song. "there is no release" from this cycle because there will always be people who go through life not following there dreams. life IS a miracle. tom wants everyone to follow their dreams because you cant be truly happy if you dont. and you cant love someone else if you dont first truly LOVE YOURSELF.

    General Commentam i the only one who wishes that i could just sit with tom in some
    unknown hole in the wall bar and talk to him about anything and everything?

    or just shrink and go into his head to see how all of this crazyness works?

    General CommentWe are what we dream and aspire to be. But as we grow it all gets lost in the shuffle, and we become something else entirely.

    It is hard to love and be loved when you are not yourself.

    My InterpretationSome reviews online are knocking this song for "We are are love / love is hard" line. They obviously aren't listening to the other lyrics. This song is amazing. It's about how so many people are down on themselves and are stuck in their "cycle", not living life, which is indeed a miracle.

    I think the last line is "A slow rolling wave with a wake that's yet to come" which makes more sense than "A sole, lonely wave with the weight that's yet to come" but its so close to both of them that I'm not sure.

    One of the best songs on the new album.

    General CommentAgreed, the melody line is too similar to The Adventure, you can pretty much sing them side by side.
