Chaos and Earthquakes

  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • Over airy guitars and resounding keys, this state-of-play track finds Elias Soriano blasting out rapid-fire lyrics about the current divisive society:

    Watchin' everybody fight each other
    Sister versus brother
    Peace versus war
    Rich against the poor
    Different versus different
    Bed versus the floor
    Wall versus the door


    "It really discusses the state of things lately," said Soriano. "We're watching an end-of-days scenario play out constantly in the media. The lyrics urge getting away from the madness. I, myself, literally stopped watching. I didn't want to feel that anymore."
