"Running Down The Way Up" as written by Brian Wayne Transeau, Kirsty Greenwood and Michael Samuel Truman....
Below, the center's in me
Revolve around
Derive a meaning
From my self will
As I watch the sun highlight your Midas touch
Conscious light gets through somehow
Yet I always fail to notice
Yet I always fail to notice
I'm always heading for the ground

Running down the way up

The visible effect runs through my blood
As I watch the sun highlight your Midas touch
Conscious light gets through somehow
I always fail to notice
I'm heading for the ground

Has desire found a shady avenue?
(Standing up below with me)
Has desire found a shady avenue?
(Standing up below with me)
And I always fail to notice
Yet I always fail to notice

Always running down the way up
And you're standing there
(Running down)
Always running down the way up
And you're standing there
(Running down)
Always running down the way up
And you're standing there
(Running down)
Always running down the way up
And you're standing there
And if we doubt, we can hardly hope to shine
And the sun could eventually be outshone

Always running down the way up
And you're standing there
(Running down)
Always running down the way up
And you're standing there
(Running down)
Always running down the way up
And you're standing there
(Running down)
Always running down the way up
And you're standing there

(the way up)

And conscious light gets through somehow
Yet I fail to notice
That I'm heading for the ground

Running down the way up

Always running down the way up
And you're standing there

(the way up)

    General Commentjust an amazing song....

    i think its about someone who's so enamored by someone, that they don't see the obsticles in their way that are stopping them from getting to that person... the things in the way don't waiver their pursuit because they want the person so badly....

    General CommentBT seems to be acknowledging that he feels spiritually confused, and hides his message behind a poetic veil. From what I've gathered, he says that things go from bad to worse, yet it doesn't seem like God is doing anything about it. It always feels like he's going the wrong direction, but God doesn't seem to be doing anything about it. Then he goes on to talk about doubting himself and being out shined. He seems afraid of giving up his self will to worship God, because possibly he fears that something bad will happen.

    General CommentAnd when he says, "Has desire found a shady avenue?" He speaks of how he finds his desires unquenchable, because they fill in the void of space, but he always fails to notice when things are spiralling out of control. He seems to be acknowledging some sort of blindness.
