  Artist List   /   Switchfoot   /   Oh! Gravity.





01. Oh! Gravity.

Oh! Gravity.
by Switchfoot



 

Thereís a fracture in the color bar
In the backseat of a parked car
By the liquor store where the streetlight
Keep you company til the next night

In the same town, thereís the same scar
In the same glow of the liquor store
By the freeway, where the headlight
Keep her company til the next night

(chorus)
Oh! Gravity!
Why canít we seem to keep it together?
Sons of my enemies,
Why canít we seem to keep it together?

In the back room of the pentagon
Thereís a thin man with a line drawn
With a red jaw and a red bite
Watch the headline on the next night

(chorus)
Oh! Gravity!
Why canít we seem to keep it together?
Sons of my enemies,
Why canít we seem to keep it together?
Why this tragedy?
Why canít we seem to keep it together?
Oh! Gravity!
Why canít we seem to pull it together?

In the fallout, the fallout
We found out the hype wonít get you through
Weíre connected, connected
I meant it, the hype wonít get you through

(chorus)



Behind the Song:
''Oh! Gravity' is a conversation with a well-known law of physics. The question is this: If in the physical world things naturally move closer together, why are we falling apart? War and rumors of war, divorce, hatred, violence, and everything else on the evening news seems to contradict gravity. This song is a fun happy-clappy tune about a grave matter: 'Sons of my enemies, why can't we seem to keep it together?' Ė Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
