"Biblical" as written by and Simon Alexander Neil....
Baby if you could would you go back to the start?
Take any fresh steps or watch it all fall apart again?

Play another song here, then you can leave
With your delicate wings, I used to weave
Maybe there's an undertow here
Or maybe this is stuck up in the air
I know how it looks but all that glitters ain't gold

You gave me magical, I gave you wonderful
Cut that invisible cord or I'll starve you of
What's understandable
Let's make immeasurable moves to the left
Or the right but not central

'Cause you gave me magical, I gave you wonderful
Cut that invisible cord or I'll starve you of
What's understandable
Let's make immeasurable moves to the left
Or the right but not central

'Cause you gave me magical
I gave you wonderful
Let's make this biblical
And hang from our invisible cords

Baby if you could would you go back to the start?
Take any fresh steps or watch it all fall apart, again?
It could have been a wonderful year
Instead we might not make it to the end
Everybody cares, but nobody knows

You gave me magical, I gave you wonderful
Cut that invisible cord or I'll starve you of
What's understandable
Let's make immeasurable moves to the left
Or the right but not central

'Cause you gave me magical, I gave you wonderful
Cut that invisible cord or I'll starve you of
What's understandable
Let's make immeasurable moves to the left
Or the right but not central

'Cause you gave me magical
I gave you wonderful
Let's make this biblical
And hang from our invisible cords

You gave me magical
I gave you wonderful
Let's make this biblical
And hang from our invisible cords

(Oh)
(Oh)
(Oh)

Baby how can you walk away?
Baby how can you walk away?
Baby how can you walk away?
Baby how can you walk away?
Baby how can you walk away?
Baby how can you walk away?
Baby how can you walk away?
Baby how can you walk away?

Baby if you could would you go back to the start?
Take any fresh steps or watch it all fall apart, again?

    My InterpretationI don't know about you guys but the video, with the song, is a lifestyle/relationship that went wrong in the end and no matter how he viewed the world around him or viewed the person it ended up the same way.

    My OpinionThe line "I know how it looks but all that glitters ain't gold" reminds me of Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin ("There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold").

    General CommentI agree, it seems that whatever was tried, good or bad, kind or cruel, it all fell apart. Too reminicsint of life...

    General CommentNot entirely sure what is exactly about however I have a feeling it is something to do with the relationship between Simon and his wife which tends to be the case with quite a few of their songs

    General CommentMy mail is that: Simon Neil's wife had three miscarriages. This video shows how Neil reacted each time. The first time he receives the news on the phone from his wife, he is angry and wanted to attack everyone. This only leads to him getting beaten and hurt. The video then replays itself with Neil getting another phone call, telling him that his wife has had another miscarriage. However this time, he reaches in a kinder way. Ultimately, this still hurts him (he gets beaten up). At the end he receives the third phone call, and his face screams out that he can not go through this again. The line 'You gave me magical' references the children that sadly died. Beautiful!
