Coming up beyond belief
On this coronary thief
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
More than just a leitmotif
More chaotic, no relief
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
I'll describe the way I feel
Weeping wounds that never heal
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
Can the savior be for real
Or are you just my seventh seal?
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)

No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Just like I swallowed half my stash
I never ever wanna crash
No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Now you're back with dope demand
I'm on sinking sand
Gravity, no escaping
Gravity
Gravity, no escaping
Not for free
I fall down
Hit the ground
Make a heavy sound
Every time you seem to come around

I'll describe the way I feel
You're my new Achilles heel
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
Can this savior be for real
Or are you just my seventh seal?
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)
(Bada bam bam ba da da da)

No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Just like I swallowed half my stash
I never ever wanna crash
No hesitation, no delay
You come on just like special K
Now you're back with dope demand
I'm on sinking sand
Gravity, no escaping
Gravity
Gravity, no escaping
Not for free
I fall down
Hit the ground
Make a heavy sound
Every time you seem to come around

No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
No escaping gravity
Gravity
Gravity
Gravity

    My InterpretationThe song ends with repeating the word 'Gravity' which could refer to a drug that's wearing off or pulling them down to hell, or someone is putting their feet back on the ground to be down to earth again.

    It could either be something negative or positive depending on the interpretation of the song: Is it about love or drugs?

    I consider it to be a cautionary tale because when you feel like your slipping away (sand metaphor) that's probably something bad.

    And even if you fall in love, you still gotta be careful. And the protagonist is saying: I never ever wanna crash' but he feels the gravity and is threatened by it.

    So he fears to come back down from 'falling in love' or being high from the drugs. It could also refer to how attracted to her he feels, which means he can't escape his feelings for her: he's hopelessly in love, but because he 'hits the ground' I'd say he's in love with someone who doesn't share his feelings. (Or it's just about drugs. Who knows)
