"Meltdown" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
Like Himalayan cold winter
These jaws of kali yuga
Yeah it's a crazy kind of cold
A lifeless slumber in a stranglehold

Yeah tibet she can't even touch this
I'd rather freeze in her forests
We're in a spiritual winter
And I long for the one who is

Fire!
Amongst the dreamers
You are in my heart

Like the sun on the icecaps
My only friend in the prison
The long lost meaning to the story story
The divine and ancient wisdom

How could it be that you've graced my
Night?
Like a pardon from the governor
Like a transplant from the donor

Like a gift from the one who is

Fire!
Amongst the dreamers
You are in my heart
Fire!

Amongst the dreamers
You are in my heart

In a place where everything dies
It's you I follow
See by the fire
Of my darlin', yeah!

Fire!
Amongst the dreamers
You are, you are
In my heart

Like a pardon from the governor
Like a transplant from the donor
Like a kiss, like a kiss, from my darlin'
Yeah!

    General CommentNo physical pain compares to spiritual emptiness. But he has found the "one" who can bring warmth again to his heart.

    General CommentMeaning is easily understandable, there is not so much poetry in it. But one of my top favorite and underrated songs from Live... The other is "Top". Impressive song, lyrics and guitar solo...

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Live songs. Being a Tibetan Buddhist I can really relate to it. Saying Tibet's a sacred place - best to die a physical death there than die a spiritual death elsewhere. According to Hinduism and Buddhism we are in a very dark spiritual age called the Kali-yuga. The Buddha said we were in a such a dark age that a lot fewer Buddhas would appear.
