Following are some selections from the new Light Grenades album from Incubus… go out and get it… Brandon is amazing sometimes:
Give it time girl, the fire feels divine. The sweetest things they burn before they shine. We think way too much. Look at us losing touch! A promise is a promise until… Yeah, in spite of this we’re doing just fine, even diamonds start as coal.
At the heart of it all, your fiery core, there’s an amassing armor, and it’s building you into a bore. Life’s a match in a gas tank, don’t ever mourn the ebbing tide, just dance on fire and enjoy the ride.
Tonight we drink to youth, and holding fast to truth. (I don’t want to lose what I had as a boy.) My heart still has a beat, but love is now a feat. (As common as a cold day in LA.) Sometimes when I’m alone, I wonder is there a spell that I am under keeping me from seeing the real thing?
A cloud hangs over this city by the sea. I watch the ships pass and wonder if she might be, out there and sober as well from loneliness. Please do persist, girl it’s time we met and made a mess.
Word is born.
