"Waltz" as written by and Thomas B. Powers....
I can see you with your brothers
And your homes have been blessed
But you walk in a rubble
You walk in a mess
Looking for trouble
There’s a fox in the nest
Kick up your heels on the double
Put the mocking to rest

I am a fire if you hesitate
Bang bang hurry up
But you watch with the eyes
In the jaws of a boy
Who will never recognize his luck

I am a fire if you hesitate
Tie your laces up
But you watch with the eyes
In the jaws of a boy
Who is never gonna come unstuck

What you say undercover
In the belly of the beast
Blaze a trail at their pace
Jump up for the peak
As the words pile up
Like an accident
It's just semantics

I am a fire if you hesitate
Bang bang hurry up
But you watch with the eyes
In the jaws of a boy
Who will never recognize his luck

I am a fire if you hesitate
Tie your laces up
But you watch with the eyes
In the jaws of a boy
Who is never gonna come unstuck

This is how he sees it
This is how he works
This is how he functions
I know why it hurts
I can see him heaving
“Watch me take a word and turn it into magic”

    Song MeaningFrom the band:

    Random things inspire me to make music. I was really moved by this film I saw a couple years back. I went straight to my laptop and bashed out a demo titled ‘Waltz.’ Lyrically, I was just painting a picture of what I’d seen. I thought it sounded great but there was no way that TNAF would be singing about anything political. So it just sat on my computer for a year or so. I was waiting for an angle. I ended up drawing on all kinds of related negative experiences … with all kinds of nasty people. That was the catalyst. This song is for them. – Thom
