"Grand Unification (Part. 1)" as written by and Dan Haigh Omar Abidi....
Covered and coarse
I can wait my turn
Pay them all back
Let's turn original
Let's take it all back
But can hide but I won't

How do you know?
Blacked out and bleeding
Take it away
One look and you'll never leave
Because this can't hold us down

If I wake up on my own
And something happens
Please, come home
Wake me up before you go

If you never know
Then it could never hurt
As much as this does
Let's turn original
Let's make this all work
But you can run but I won't

How do you know?
Blacked out and bleeding
Take it away
One look and you'll never leave
Because this won't hold us down

If I wake up on my own
And something happens
Please, come home
Wake me up before you go on

You can't hold us down
This won't hold us down
You can't hold us down

If you wake up
(If I wake up)
On your own
(On my own)
Something happens please come home

(You won't stop us now)
Wake me up before you go
(Nothing holds us down)
I hope you're happy on your own
(You can't stop us now)

    General Commentyeah i like the song. i don't get the anime in the video though. any relevance or just for fun? I'm a bit confused though. I think she left him and how he's pleading that he wants her back.

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy and his g/f's relationship falling apart and he's sayin that it wont "hold them down" and he's willing to work for it! And if she wakes up on her own and feels lonely he wants her to come back! He's also saying that he could run ... but he doesn't want to! At the end he says "I hope you're happy on your own" ... meaning he wants her but she doesn't want him enough to work for it and she will be lonely now! .. Probs got that completely wrong ... but hey, I tried! =) xXx

    General CommentWell, the lyrics are wrong for a start. Only minor things, but it changes the outlook of the song a bit.
    These guys were amazing live.

    General CommentWell I read that Grand Unification is a concept album. Its a fantasy last day on Earth, and looking through the atwork and lyrics, it makes sense. I think some of the songs are accounts of various people on their last day alive.

    'If I wake up
    On my own
    If something happens
    Please come home
    Wake me up before you go'

    I think someone is asking someone close to them to stay close. The rest of the song is more defiance of whatever is gonna kill everyone.....

    General Comment"one look and you'll never LEAVE"

    no?

    that's what i always heard, and it's what would make more sense lyrically too.

    General CommentYeah incubassman is right, the whole album is about people's last experiences. They're new album is much more personal which I prefer, the whole thing resonates with feeling, some of it is really touchingly understated (unfamiliar ceilings...just wow)

    General Commenti also got the impression that all the songs were kinda connected to the end of the world, especially "lost like tears in rain" and "grand unification pt 2". i really do love this
    band!!!
