Random Song of The Day - Incubus - Earth To Bella pt 1 & 2 - video and lyrics

3- Earth To Bella (part 1 and part 2) - Incubus- Light Grenades 2006

What a surprising song. It starts all sweet and soft, then the guitars come and knock you off your feet.... Very short, too. I don't know, there's something powerfully intense in those 2 and a half minutes. Part 2 is calmer, with organ and acoustic guitar... Until mid way through, when electric guitars kick in... Beautiful. Incubus.

Earth to Bella,
You think you've got it all figured in,
Earth to Bella,
Everything you know is wrong. Well, almost
Earth to Bella,
I've seen when you are not listening
I bear the burden
Of being the voice that lets you know
We all grow old,
And before you swim you've gotta be ok to sink.
Earth to Bella,
The world can be an unfriendly place.
So hold your head up
And do your best to save some face.
It's not so hard...
Just undo yourself and see a
Second sun ascend.
I'm ok to sink
ok to sink
Im ok to sink
ok to sink.

Earth to Bella
This is a quiet emergency
Earth to Bella
There's so much more to get then wronged
Earth to Bella
You're treading water successfully
But are you really?
Don't you want to see the deep?
It's not so hard
Just forgive yourself and feel the water open in
