"Low" as written by and Daniel Johns....
Have you ever been lost
Floating on the ground
Like a fading frost?
You've fallen asleep
Next to your bed
And you feel so low

Oh, they've stolen your pride
Stand up while your conscience sits aside
I've made up my mind
Half of the time, and I feel so low

[Chorus]
Stay and hijack the hurt
I feel so low, I feel so high
Take a look inside my mind

If the object was clear
There wouldn't be a point
Only godless fear
By the end of July
I wonder, will I still feel so low?

Oh, I am host to a guide
Moving in time
And falling in line
I've made up my mind
The papers are signed
And I feel so low

[Chorus]

Once a lover
Never suffer
So far away from here
Feeling hollow
Head to toe, so low

[Chorus]

    General CommentStay and hijack the hurt
    I feel so low I feel so high
    Take a look inside my mind

    Clever I thought. I think this is what most artist do anyway, they feel so low, so painful, and then they own the place that they are in by endulging in it and making something out of it. Im sure everyone has met those people that are addicted to feeling low. The ones that are too lazy to do the work to fill their lives that they settle for the intense stimulous of reveling in their hollowness and pain, hahah which only brings more pain and can send them into a downward spiral. For some though, like perciphany, can bring about such beauty. But Daniel is now in his life, the more evolved human, he has learned to create from another place. LISTEN TO THIS ALBUM!

    General CommentI think it's possibly about knowing how to control your 'low'. Hijacking your wounds and being able to do good stuff with it, like songs like this :3

    General Commentyeah i agree i think that
    Stay and hijack the hurt
    I feel so low I feel so high
    Take a look inside my mind


    If the object was clear
    There wouldn't be a point
    Only Godless fear

    is about how feeling 'low' brings out the best in him and this is where his lyrics comes from and if he knew what everything he was feeling meant or how things would turn out in his life there wouldnt be much point ot it
    he feels so high because of the music he makes

    General Commenti think that he is just expressing a low mood in a song as well, which is a cathartic experience. it gives a more whimsical feeling and a kind of acceptance about it as opposed to being hopeless. and maybe how it is better to feel something than nothing at all, "never suffer" or that could also be a reference to his divorce and how he felt? like with 'the papers are signed' like the divorce papers, and 'once a lover'...that was just one thought.
