"Gravity's Union" as written by and Claudio Sanchez Travis Stever....
I flew head first into the light
Weightless, crisscrossing, precise
In a dream or was it life?

Inside this door all answers wait
So saddle up my steed
Where the lies live way beneath

Oh my, I think I’ve made a mess
This is all my fault it’s what I’ve wished

And I was wrong to let you go
I accept my mistake, but you will never know
This is my love into a ten ton truck
Baby, please remember the better me

No time to change my life in the air before
Our maximum reach outweighed
Apart, picture less retreat

The terror meets the truth, no longer who
We know what we must do
Shadow dancing through the roof

Contact the life you used to know
Gravity, the world in tow
And I was wrong to let you go
I accept my mistake, but you will never know
This is my love into a ten ton truck
Baby, please remember the better me

Driver may I sleep with you tonight
Numbered uncertainty
City limits, shoe strewn diary
The roar of the engine won’t cease

All of my love and heart spilled in this car
Picture me the perfect enemy
Our lives are one, colliding up and beyond
In this fatal possibility

I am your, I am your prize

We wave welcome aboard
We wave welcome aboard
We wave welcome aboard
In my eyes I drown you

Has he forgotten his place
Bait the hook and let it sink
No cause for alarm
Enter the master, I am Dr. Straight

Scalpel keep that lung in place
Nurse, IV needs refilling
Now watch the brain
Responding quite normal
This life I can save

Every man has a point
Where he breaks or conjoins
Among pressure that floods to complicate
Matters close to the heart
Will define who we are
Do we love? Do we hate?
We are only the meat

We understood the unmistakable
Two romantics on holiday and
How they stole our love

Caged
Locked in perpetual motion
Carving our wounds wide open
But you let the wrong one in

Caged
Locked in perpetual motion
Carving our wounds wide open
But you let the wrong one in

Caged
Locked in perpetual motion
Carving our wounds wide open
But you let the wrong one in

Caged
Locked in perpetual motion
Carving our wounds wide open
But you let the wrong one in

    Song MeaningThis song takes us back before the car crash in Number City, revealing the conversation that Meri and Sirius had before their tragic accident. Meri has decided that she cannot stay with Sirius, and that even before he had left on his fateful mission to the Keywork, she was not satisfied with their relationship and constantly feeling like she was placed second behind his research. She reveals her relationship with Colten and the fact that she is pregnant with his child; upon hearing the news, Sirius is overcome with emotion and loses control of the car, leading to the accident.

    We then move forward to the couple in the hospital, where a surgeon named Dr. Straight tends to Sirius's injuries and saves his life. However, Meri's injuries prove too great and the medical team cannot save her or her baby.

    My InterpretationI think this may be the masterpiece of Descension. It ties together such a great combination of different riffs; it really hearkens back to their GA:1 days, but in such a different way that it's impossible to not see the progression in tone and the additions of new movements on their guitar playing. I think the coolest part has to be

    Has he forgotten his place
    Bait the hook and let it sink
    No cause for alarm
    Enter the master, I am Dr. Straight

    Scalpel keep that lung in place
    Nurse, IV needs refilling
    Now watch the brain
    Responding quite normal, this life I can save

    Every man has a point, where he breaks or conjoins
    Among pressure that floods to complicate
    Matters close to the heart will define who we are
    Do we love. Do we hate. We are only the meat.

    This is so classic, core Coheed that I want to throw out Second Stage and put this in its place as the benchmark for what Coheed is. The simple character and scene with Dr. Straight is powerful and just badass, and the part about how "we are only the meat" seems to me to be an analysis of the Doctor's point of view, namely that Sirius and Meri are only meat, just patients, and he has decided to focus on Sirius because he is the viable life to save. I love the lines about how "Every man has a point where he breaks or conjoins, among pressure that floods to complicate" just because it so perfectly, beautifully articulates something I've been dealing with for a while. Not good, not great, but nearly perfect writing on this song. If this is their new standard I think we'll be very happy with the future of Coheed.
    One among the fucking fence, son.
