"Around Us" as written by and Jon Thor Birgisson....
I see the walls, then see them fall
You break through them all
I see you crawl, now you stand tall
Grow and grow till tall

In storm we scream against the stream, our eyes watering
Jump into lakes, the surface breaks
We swim underwater, and our mouths
In tune

We all want to grow with the seeds we will sow
We all want to go with the breeze we will blow
We all want to know when we're all meant to go
To a place you and I

I see forest, a treasure chest full of labyrinth
I see a door, holes in the floor
We'll break seeds, we'll grow

There's songs, songs you bring to us
You pin both the wings on us
I hear, I see you sing for us
You go tie a string around us

There's songs, songs you bring to us
You pin both the wings on us
I hear, I see you sing for us
You go tie a string around us

We all want to grow with the seeds we will sow
We all want to go with the breeze we will blow
We all want to know when we're all meant to go
To a place you and I

We all want to grow with the seeds we will sow
We all want to go with the breeze we will blow
We all want to know when we're all meant to go
To a place you and I

I see you grow
I see you grow
Grow taller

(And our mouths
In tune)

    General CommentI see it as similar to Boy Lilikoi - the uplifting nature of it - though both are brilliant songs in their own right.

    It's a definite stand-out!

    My InterpretationI think it has to do with getting older and making sure you live life to the fullest you can despite your hardships and all the twists and turns, ups and downs life takes you through ("I see forest, a treasure chest full of labyrinth I see a door, holes in the floor
    We'll break seeds, we'll grow"). He knows we will all have to die eventually, but hopefully we can enjoy the journey until then. And when death does come, he knows we all want to die naturally and painlessly but we can't know for sure if that will happen; so maybe we can focus on a happy place we will go to no matter our death. He says that place is called home::
    ("We all want to grow with the seeds we will sow
    We all want to go with the breeze we will blow
    We all want to know when we're all meant to go
    To a place you and I- Will call home").
