    That's a good point and makes sense; makes it seem more likely that it's "knock".

    By the way, I'm just gonna claim my credit for the fact that I was the first one to realize it was "running down the spiral" and not "money down the spiral", and that "now day has turned to night" line - and now everyone has those in their lyrics sets. dexterone, you wanna insult me again for my first quick attempt at the lyrics? :P

    Well that's understandable. I guess I'll have to teach him some manners.

    Its definitely knock knocking in my opinion.

    dexterone, I like some of those changes you made to the lyrics. "The conflict starts a riot" makes sense and definitely sounds possible. EDIT: forgot to mention, I keep hearing "the foxhole starts a riot" but I don't know if this makes sense, which is why I never put it in the lyrics I posted. What do others think?

    However I do still think it is "Can you save me from the light" in the chorus as I posted in my lyrics. I hear two syllables an no d on "save"

    The line you are unsure about in the last verse I wasn't sure of either. At a minimum the first four words are definitely "No foul play no" in my opinion (first "No" MIGHT be "now", and I do think I hear string for the fifth. So "No foul play, no string ____ ____" Definitely two one-syllable words at the end. I'm now thinking "No foul play, no string to throw"

    "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!
    yeah,I know that only r,w and j sound may be intrusive...but you know...it was a concert and the recording is in a bad quality,so it is hard to say...you might be right but I would still say that it is with the lie...

    I suppose that there are more people on here who have been thinking right from the first listening that it was Running down the spiral...but you are right with Now day has turned to night...and I don't wanna insult you,just keep in mind that according to your version we'd still be talking about the sea made of diamonds and small (something) that will either go or grow but I don't mean it in a wrong way...

    Thank you,man I think that it's And saved from the light because Day has turned to night and the night saved him from the light...I don't think that he would be asking if someone could save him...wouldn't make sense...and you're right,it's Now foul will instead of No...I already changed that yesterday..and I'm guessing that it's no foul will play no string at all....I hear ''at all'' at the end but I'm not sure...

    Exclamation Finally!

    It's a great song. Lots of goodies in it, thus it's not too predictive. Nice intro and ending. Some almost middle eastern stuff and also slower part.

    Full version of the song!! So awesome! I don't think this song really sounds like "standard Offspring fare", as someone called it. It reminds me a bit of Lightning Rod, which will always be exceptional to me. Way excited to hear that intro, bridge, and ending in full studio sound.

    Well, now we* have to do the rest of the lyrics.

    *Everyone else, I'll just watch like an ass.
    Your back's to the wall, that's protocol;
    It's sequestering your spirit, misleading us all.

    Maybe this is the song that sounds like Lightning Rod, like Noodles said.
