"July Jones" as written by and Carl Newman....
Come clean through the waves of debris.
The mind's eye is first to go, so hang onto that number like gold.
And get thee back to the old truth, July Jones, July Jones
Cause baby there ís a lot we don't know.

One of the greats, on the way, hold on.
One of the greats, on the way, hold on.
Behind the daylight, who knew what it could feel like?

Class war held your hand through your plans and not me, but stay free.
Baby, there are worse things to be. So lay free in your faith beside me, but lay low, but lay low,
Cause baby there's a lot we don't know.

One of the greats, on the way, hold on.
One of the greats, on the way, hold on.
Behind the daylight, who knew what it could feel like?
Behind the daylight, who knew what it could feel like?

Class war kissed your lips, left you stripped to your toes, and I know
That baby it's so much to outgrow.
So get thee back to the old truth, July Jones, July Jones
Cause baby there's a lot we don't know.

One of the greats, on the way, hold on.
One of the greats, on the way, hold on.
Behind the daylight, who knew what it could feel like?
Behind the daylight, who knew what it could feel like?

    Wow. That line is amazing. this song is amazing. It is truly a masterpiece that engulfs you when you listen to it. It moves you, while maintaining a relaxed feel. If I smoked, i would totally smoke to this song. But I don't.

    General CommentI've always felt this song was about a person struggling to become someone great. They feel like they are lost behind all of the mindless masses, and want to break away and be something more.
