  • La la la! La la la!
    La la la! La la la!
    La la la! La la la!
    La la la! La la la!

    There's a fracture in the color bar
    In the backseat of a parked car
    By the liquor store where the streetlight
    Keep you company till the next night

    In the same town, there's the same scar
    In the same glow of the liquor store
    By the freeway where the headlight
    Keep her company till the next night

    Oh! Gravity
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Sons of my enemies
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?

    In the back room of the Pentagon
    There's a thin man with the line drawn
    With a red jaw and a red bite
    Watch the headline on the next night

    Oh! Gravity
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Sons of my enemies
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?

    Why this tragedy?
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Oh! Gravity
    Why can't we seem to put it together?

    In the fallout, the fallout
    We found out the hype won't get you through
    We're connected, connected
    I meant it, the hype won't get you through
    (Through!)

    Oh! Gravity
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Oh! Gravity
    Why can't we seem to put it together?

    Why this tragedy?
    Why can't we seem to keep it together?
    Oh! Gravity
    Why can't we seem to put it together, now?

    La la la la la la!
    La la la!
    La la la la la la la la!
    La la la la la!
    La la la!
    La
    Let's put it together

  • Kellie from Detroit, Mi"Gravity is the physical attraction between two bodies and it's basiclly asking the laws of physics why we on a social and political plain can't really keep it together. You look at the headlines every day and see things falling apart basiclly disobeying the laws of physics."
    -Jon Foreman
  • Nick from Hamilton, New ZealandThe chorus leads me to think that "gravity" is like the pull on our lives to go the way of the world, and we sometimes struggle to "keep it together" as in staying on the right path. Good song, catchy and powerful message
