This is the only song I can not seem to figure out lyrically, however its my favorite on the album. Everything appears to simply flow perfectly and also the sax at the start is heavenly.
i experienced someone mention it possibly being a earlier and forth between dave and roi. i can see the chorus being roi talking to dave, however i honestly have no idea what this song is around. its weird that its so beautiful, yet no one know what the hell its about.
I agree that its such a beautiful song....love the lyrics, have no concept what they intend...then there"s that "i really should contact my mother" line that completely throws me!

The "currently the floor is the ceiling" lyric after the first chorus might expect that the people as he kbrand-new it was turned upside down. the choroffers complying with this incorporate "if you knew how i feel, you couldn"t be so sure". meaning after a horrible event/events, dave"s watch of the civilization was changedi"ve assumed the chorus was around dave"s loss of faith in god. Saying if you knew how he felt, then you wouldn"t be certain that he believed in god.
likewise, the line "if you never before flew why would you?" can be that Roi decided to fly in the aircraft to LA to satisfy the men once he hardly ever flew all over.
likewise, the line "if you never before flew why would certainly you?" could be that Roi made a decision to fly in the airplane to LA to meet the men when he rarely flew almost everywhere.
^^^i haven"t assumed of that i constantly felt that the butterfly part type of represented the cruelties of the civilization I think these lyrics represent exactly how human being that accept god and jesus through a passion feel. I think of watching revivals on T.V. and watching the audience go insane over what the preacher is saying"If you feel angels in your head Teardrop of joy runs dvery own your challenge You will certainly rise"
The "now the floor is the ceiling" lyric after the initially chorus could suppose that the world as he kbrand-new it was turned upside dvery own. the chorsupplies complying with this include "if you kbrand-new how i feel, you couldn"t be so sure". interpretation after a horrible event/occasions, dave"s check out of the people was changedi"ve believed the chorus was about dave"s loss of faith in god. Saying if you kbrand-new how he felt, then you wouldn"t be certain that he believed in god.

likewise, the line "if you never flew why would you?" could be that Roi decided to fly in the airplane to LA to accomplish the men when he seldom flew everywhere.
I believed that to, but as soon as you look at the line it says "If you never before flew why would certainly you? Cut the wings off a butterfly" So I analyze as you don"t recognize what its choose for a butterfly to have actually the liberty to fly so why take that amethod from him?
I feel like he is saying that "if you kbrand-new what i feel then you couldn"t be certain that I"ll be lying in the hands of god" "If you kbrand-new what I feel then you couldn"t be so sure I"ll be right right here lying in the hands of God" i think the 2 above lines are connected as in what conmessage they are being used
I"m going to attempt to item together what we"re reasoning so far.Roi - save your sermons for someone that"s (shouldn"t this be "who"s"??) afrhelp to love - don"t spend your time crying over me once we were not afraid to present our love for one anotherDave - if you kbrand-new what i feel then you couldn"t be so sure - if you (Roi) had actually to suffer what i"m going with (shedding a close friend) you wouldn"t be able to simply move on via your lifeRoi - i"ll be appropriate right here lying in the hands of god - i"ll be up below in heaven waiting for you to join mebelow it comes diving right into me - the news of Roi"s fatality sinking in after the initial shock and also disbeliefcurrently the floor is the ceiling - the news turned Dave"s people upside downif you never flew why would you cut the wings off a butterfly? - i think is either dave talking to everyone else about Roi. Roi"s spirit/soul/gorganize being able to fly currently that it has left his physical body and also to not try to host Roi ago from taking the next component of his journeyor it could be Dave asking Roi why he would fly and also the "cut the wings off a butterfly" part is symbolizing Roi"s talent (the wings) being taken away from him (cut off)
