just let the worlds collide
breathe easy, and you'll trail back off to sleep
with no pushing inside you going on
be relieved your heart beats... next to me
and the east side of this state would be no place to raise a family
i feel the calm come over me
i take my lead from the sea and the century
and the east side of this state would be no place to raise a family
and the east side of this state, no place to raise a home at all
what have i learned from being inside of you
and the waves crash in over something more
and the waves crash in, i'm completed in this
twenty years and i break through
twenty years and i break free of this mold
cast around my heart, like winter's freezing grasp
words fall softly in my head
and the words fall softly in my head
on this bed of fire, where i dream next to you, every night

    General CommentYes, this band is amazing. Definately one of my favorite local (MI) bands. I think this song could be about falling in love with a girl for the first time. Maybe even making love to that girl for the first time. There are a couple lines in the song that I don't understand that make me unsure though. Like, "The East side of this state..." What does he mean by that?
