To go as far, as far as I can see
at the edge of the earth
The continuos sound of lights
that have reached the bottom

In the middle of the desert
I stared patiently
To see them touch the ground
Imploding on the cracked mud surface

I knelt down underneath the midway
In the millionth sighting

Lets lay back
Sitting inside my car
At the edge of the earth
I turned my head to the left
And I knew I could not be drugged
Orbs with infusion white
Mirroring the image of a silhouette
At the edge of the earth

And i'm here tonight
Underneath the influence
And why can't I find a way out
It's calling me tonight
This secret I have become
At the edge of the earth

You misunderstood the gravity
As the weight falls apart
You'll watch me walk away
I walk away
Calm as the wind
You'll watch me go

Let's lay back
Sitting inside my car
At the edge of the earth
I turned my head to left
And I knew I could not be drugged
Orbs with infusion white
Mirroring the image of a silhouette
At the edge of the earth

And I'm here tonight
Underneath the influence
And why can't I find a way out
It's calling me tonight
The secret I have become
At the edge of the earth

    Song MeaningIt's about aliens. He talks about hearing the lights touch the ground. Which is the ships landing. He sits in the desert (Area 51) waiting for them to land. He knew he could not be drugged, meaning he knew what he was seeing was real and not because he was high. The silhouette in the light was an alien coming out of the ship. The last verse of him walking away is him leaving with them and he starts understanding the gravity of his choice as he leaves the atmosphere and becomes weightless. That's all the secret he has become and he can't find a way out of knowing it.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about being intoxicated (by alcohol or any other drug) and finding yourself during a moment of grace. In this case they speak of the desert and it feels like your at the edge of the earth. Your stress an inner pain is released, and the secret is understanding yourself and life in itself better at that moment.

    I think one of the reasons I interpreted this song like so is because I have many times felt that I was in a similar situation.

    General CommentI just found this band the other day and fell in love with em. Mainly because of their complex lyrics like this. This is my favorite song on the album. I'm prob wrong but it sounds like he can see another world or something/someone from another world like aliens or something? haha great song and band regardless

    General CommentIn my opinion it talks about being in a relationship and finding a perfect moment inside something simple such as laying with the loved one staring at the stars, to you they look brilliant because of how you're feeling at that point. Then talks about him breaking up with her after she misunderstood the boundaries of the relationship. Then he talks about being alone being under the influence in his car doing the same thing, but finding no perfect moment because that persons gone, almost like he regrets the decision. Ah well. Just taking a shot.
