Any means in your horizon
Heaven in a tourniquet
The after life to keep your eyes on
bitter pill you take you take today
With expert levitation forward,
polished to the nth degree,
it takes it's smile from every children,
you take the beating.

Any means in your horizon
Every mink walks two by two,
we gamble to be born again
You know I never wanted to
With expert levitation forward,
polished to the nth degree,
it takes it's smile from every children,
you take the beating.

The light divining,
the light defining,
the light divining,
the light dividing.

Don't let me down,
let me-he,
let me down,
don't let me,
don't let me down,
let me-he,
let me down,
let me.

The light divining,
the light defining,
the light divining,
the light deviding.

    General CommentFrom interview:

    Q: Can you tell me what 'Allergic' is about?

    Brian: Well that's one of the songs on the album that isn't really a love song. It's a kind of environment versus religion song. It's me having a go at Christians for not giving a shit about the environment basically because to them their rewards will always be in heaven and not on this earth so it really doesn't matter that we're using this place as a fucking garbage tip, you know. And when I first started writing songs I had to shake the spectre of Jesus out of me so I wrote a lot of sort of like' I'm angry about God' songs and it didn't really kind of you know I had to get that out of my system before we started the band really. But it's kind of crept up on me in this... in 'Allergic' you know. It's just kind of having a go really but it's also kind of like saying, you know, that Mother Earth, you know, Mother Nature, is stronger than you and Mother Nature will have her own back.

    General CommentI think this song is about religion. That's what Brian means when he says "the light".

    When you think of all the world's religions and how a lot clash, it does seem to divide everyone in the end.

    "every mink walks two by two" is obviously referencing Noah's ark and "we gamble to be born again" is speaking of reincarnation, I believe.

    "Any means in your horizon
    Heaven in a tourniquet"

    If it makes you feel better go ahead and believe in it.

    "The after life to keep your eyes on"

    Everyone's just worried about where they go when they die anyway.

    "bitter pill you take you take today"

    For some people, all this religion stuff can be scary -OR- they are forced to believe in it, just like Brian was.

    "With expert levitation forward,
    polished to the nth degree"

    They try to make it seem so perfect, but when looked at how it ends up affecting the world, it really isn't (ergo, the chorus)

    General CommentThis seems obvious but I think it's about drugs - the highs and the comedowns "you take the beating".
