"Fallen Souls" as written by and Gnecco....
Pray
I don't know if it's sacred or not
You say we can fall apart any time
Breathe for the whole world
For we can't fight
They starve for the love that we supply

Feed from their eyes
Dream you're alive
And feel, feel
Well the beast flies tonight
And the world he describes
Suffer, Suffer

Afraid
I don't know if we're heading for a fall
You jump
Into the front to say you're a part
Of it all

We feed from their eyes
Dream you're alive
To feel
Well the beast flies tonight
And the world he describes
Suffer, suffer

These are the fallen
The fallen souls

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this song. anybody who knows Ours should know and love this song. It is my favorite by far. Ours songs are always dark and spooky, but his voice is so amazing you dont care what the song is about. My guitar teachers friend actually dates the keyboardist in Ours, and got an advanced copy of the new cd. IT'S AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    General Commentthis song and all ours songs are so alive and fill you entirely with the music. i dont know why Ours is so little known, even in the underground scene. we need to spread the word!
    also about this song, the very end when it stops and then he comes back in singing so hard- it gives me chills. def one of my favorite parts on the album

    General Commentgrrr I want a copy of Precious! lol I was like yay oct 5th and then it got pushed back a month. Grr to you too dreamworks. I cant wait to see Ours live again. Seeing this song live is simply amazing. My heart stopped and my eyes teared up. It was actually hard to breathe. He completely took my breath way with the scream. You can just feel and hear his pain. And theyre all such great guys. Came right out into the parking lot and hung out with us all. I bow to the greatness that is Ours.

    General Commentyeah mic, the best part about Ours is how they sound dark and spooky. Come on, man! But think this song ties a lot into religion. After all, It is titled "fallen souls", what more can i say. He also talks about religion in the song, "Bleed". I love how meaningful his songs are. You can call it art.

    General Commentooh i didnt know this band was with dreamworks...no wonder they havent reemerged..its no surprise i tend to like artists of that label for some reason

    anyway, this song seems like simply a man trying to get over hisself and his views of a world teetering over the brink...and it seems sentimental to the point where just maybe praying more often could have changed it all...for himself..and the world
    just my perspective having just listened to the album...

    General Commentfall of the soul had been advocated by Socrates in Phaedrus (a book attributed to Plato but originating in all likelihood from earlier Socratic writers). In the beginning, said Socrates, all human souls had been circulating in the company of the heavenly gods. But then had come the moment of the fall from Heaven to Earth. Just before that moment, the souls had been shown a ‘spectacular vision’ and had been able to gaze for a moment at ‘sacred revealed objects that were perfect, and simple, and unshakeable and blissful’. But this heavenly glory had been lost. Upon their fall from Heaven, the souls had become imprisoned inside Earth-born bodies and many, in time, had forgotten their celestial origins, remaining only dimly aware of the perfect objects which they had once glimpsed there.

    In accordance with these ideas, the human being was envisioned as comprising an immortal soul trapped inside a mortal body (hence the saying that the body was a tomb, soma sema). The body, for its part, ‘participated’ in the ideal of its heavenly Form, but its share of the ideal fell short of the original, as did the share of all material things on Earth. Thus the body was prone to corruption, decay and death. The soul, on the other hand, had received a full share of the heavenly Forms, and was thus pure and immortal by birthright. Moreover, since the soul had originated in Heaven, it belonged in Heaven.

    The life of a man on Earth, said Plato, was no life at all because the Earth was an inferior, ever-changing copy of the heavenly ‘world of Forms’; it was a snare for mankind. True life, and true reality, said Plato, existed only in Heaven. Therefore, the purpose of a man’s life was to recognise the spiritual nature of his being and its fallen condition, and take all necessary steps to ensure the return of his soul to its birthplace in Heaven (as opposed to the usual fate of reincarnation on Earth).
