1. This song sounds amazing from the little I've heard.
2. HEY SNEED!
3. Abby, come back to the board! We need females.
Not as long as that asshole keeps harrassing me.
My version...since the city is made of diamonds,it wouldn't make sense to sing about grass that will grow...therefore,I think that it should be glass...
This city's made of diamonds
And tomorrow glass will grow
All the freedoms that divide us
They're coming after me
Now who's knock knocking at your door
The conflict starts a riot
They are coming after me
Now! Life is not the same
Sparks turn into flames
Will you take what's in my head?
And erase me when i'm dead
'cause the future is now, now I'm disappearing
Now day has turned to night
And saved me from the light
'cause the future is here, this is how I disappear
Running down the spiral
With the lie, a better man
Shouting promises tomorrow
Take one last look and see me
Now you see me now you don't
now foul will play no string at all (not sure about this line)
My hero, your pariah
They're coming after me
Now, life is just god's game
I'm also pretty sure that it's "Running down the spiral, with a line, a better man", instead of "with the lie". I hear an 'n' in there, and it'd also make more sense.
By the second one I'm not that sure...I'd say that Running down the spiral with the lie,a better man would make more sense since a better man might be used ironically...and since he's lying,he's becoming a ''better'' man...on the other hand,I also hear a 'n' sound,so it might be line but don't know if it made sence...it might be the case that Dexter said a 'n' sound because there's a diphthong at the end of ''lie'' and there's a vowel at the beginning of ''A better man''...so this 'n' sound might be like some kind of intrusive...I don't know,this 'n' sound is not as clear for me as the one in KNOCK,knocking at your door....we'll see...but if it's THAT,I'll eat my own vomit.. :D but I'm 100% sure that it's not...
"with a line" would make sense - probably more sense - if he's talking about going down a spiral, holding on to a line or following a line.
In American English, though, you wouldn't put a /n/ sound between a dipthong and another vowel - in British English, they often put a /r/ between them, but not with an American (especially California) accent. Plus those intrusions are generally /r/ - I've never heard it with /n/.
But we'll see on both of these - the second one is more interesting than the first, because the meaning is different, depending on if it's line or lie. I'm getting more and more excited for this album! :)
I think it's knock knocking even because Pete's hitting the snare twice giving the sound to the onomatopea, it makes more sense then "that" for me
