  • It's like an intuition or a feeling in the air
    An intangible impression that's always everywhere
    You bit into the apple, laid down your sword an shield
    (Untie, a little bit dies, a little each time, the medicine smile)
    Then spun 'round like a gyre in the unified field
    (Inside, your elegant guide, an arrow in flight a million miles)

    Oh, I remember feeling the opposite of falling
    (Into that spot where we untie every knot)
    Spinning past the ceiling, absolution calling
    Are you there, or not

    It's an open invitation, come see the sights of sages
    We've been a pride of lions so afraid to leave our cages
    Don't fret over the pieces that smolder in the sun
    (Untie, a little bit dies, a little each time, the medicine smile)
    'Cause nothing can be broken when everything is one
    (Inside, your elegant guide, an arrow in flight a million miles)

    I remember feeling the opposite of falling
    (Into that spot where we untie every knot)
    Spinning past the ceiling, absolution calling
    Are you there, or not

    I remember feeling the opposite of falling
    (Into that spot where we untie every knot)
    Spinning past the ceiling, absolution calling
    Are you there, or not

    You bit into the apple, laid down your sword an shield
    (Untie, a little bit dies, a little each time, the medicine smile)
    Then spun 'round like a gyre in the unified field
    (Inside, your elegant guide, an arrow in flight a million miles)

    Oh, I remember feeling the opposite of falling
    (Into that spot where we untie every knot)
    Spinning past the ceiling, absolution calling
    Are you there, or not

    I remember feeling the opposite of falling
    (Into that spot where we untie every knot)
    Spinning past the ceiling, absolution calling
    Are you there? Writer/s: BENJAMIN LEE KENNEY, BRANDON CHARLES BOYD, CHRISTOPHER E KILMORE, JOSE ANTH PASILLAS, MICHAEL AARON EINZIGER

  • Natalie from Lorena, TxDefinitely not my favorite Incubus song, but it is a super cool song. I love the background singing as well, it adds to that flowy vibe of the song. This song focuses mainly on Brandon's voice and Mike's guitar in my opinion, which are my two favorite members. Incubus 4 life <3
