don't lie to summarize
the truth in place of life
create a world to find
your love, your love, your love, your love

i want to be above
and beyond the blue too
the river but the lights
are bright, are bright, are bright, are bright

i meant for something new
to make anything true
is part of what i do
never coming back to you
what is it i said
to bleed and make a pact
together is apart from then
then i will tell you when

below the salt means less
than something else i said
below the salt means less
than something else i said
below the salt means less

    General CommentThis is an absolutely incredible song. The swells in the beginning are perfectly timed to create an ominous backbone. I love how the fragments of guitar reverb just kind of drift out of time with the drums. Then at the 4 and a half minute mark, the lyrics just pour out. I love the pace of this song that builds slowly, but never drags. And the climax at around 7:45 is just shattering. Damn.
