"In Between" as written by and Ed Roland....
In between us
Good and evil wait
To lie beside us
In our bed we make

In between us
Caution never heeds
We prey on weakness
Then beg for sympathy

In between words
Silence parades so confusion is heard
Our voices afraid
To speak up and reassure

So in between words we remain
In between
In between us
Hope we've yet to see

We long for healings
But the scars never leave
Silence fills the void
Of love and hate

An effective tool
When used to separate
Now separate

    General CommentThere is tension between us and we can't agree. We usually don't work it out, so we're both stuck in the middle of nothing and being an incomplete couple. We need to 'separate.'

    General CommentThis song was probably about how he and his recording company were having problems with never were able to communicate correctly. Though I love how he wrote it in a way that it could easily be meant between a relationship, most of his songs have different meanings.

    General CommentThis is one my favorite songs of theirs, and it's one of their most unknown as well.

    Whenever I think about this song, I feel as if Ed is singing about the state of humanity. Think about it. Here we all are, together on this planet, yet separated by ourselves. We remain in between each other, struggling to survive in a sometimes cruel and unforgiving world, and in between us remain all of the things that drive us. Good and evil, hope, help, love, hate, silence, people not caring or being too afraid to help others out.

    To me, it is a very sad song, a very pessimistic song, but a very realistic view of how we treat each other on this planet. Instead of being together, we are separated.

    General CommentThis is one of the quieter song in the album that could be overlooked behind more "flashy" songs like "Precious Declaration" and "Listen".

    For me, its one of the best song in that album. You could say it's a hidden gem. I like the restrained quality of the sound and its' subtleness.

    I think this is just one of the many songs in that album about troubled relationship he had with the band's manager.

    General CommentAs most of csoul songs its the struggle within ourselves to be more than indifferent, in the middle. So do more as a human being and do for others put our selfishness away and give to others and this will bring you peace and fulfillment.
