We built a city inside a black hole so no one could leave
If they tried they'd be pulled right back, you can't escape gravity

I saw the whole thing fold up on itself, collapsing inevitably
I couldn't say what we expected under all that gravity

We make excuses for the darkness, light can't escape gravity
But there's no rationalizing away the fact that none of us can see

Gravity holds me down so I don't drift around
But I can't help but think about how you don't need water to drown

(Note: This is one of the first songs we ever wrote together, for a band that sounded quite unlike Blood Bags. Big thanks to our fam Eli for encouraging us to rewrite it into a tune that fits our style.)
