MeaningEdit

Dan Haseltine: “‘Two Hands’ was the last song we wrote for the record. We'd been trying to find a way to try to connect all the various themes of the album -- relationships, faith, social justice -- with one unifying anthem.”

Stephen Mason: “With ‘Two Hands,’ we’re trying to take all our ideas and theories and knowledge and directly connect them to our hearts in the belief that, when we do, we can move into the fullness of who we are as God created us and give of ourselves in powerful ways to those around us.”

Matt Odmark: “You'll see a theme in our recent records about the dual nature of the human heart. On Good Monsters, we explored the pain of this duality, but THE LONG FALL… examines that duality from a more innocent, hopeful place and purely expresses the longing to see those things that are broken be mended.”[1]

Lyrics[2]Edit

Lyrics


Verse 1:

I’ve been living out of sanity

I’ve been splitting hairs and blurring lines

I am a house that is divided

In my heart and in my mind


Chorus:

I use one hand to pull you closer

The other to push you away

If I had two hands doing the same thing

Lifted high, lifted high


Verse 2:

I have a broken disposition

I’m a liar who thirsts for the truth

And while I ache for faith to hold me

I need to feel the scars and see the proof


Chorus:

I use one hand to pull you closer

The other to push you away

If I had two hands doing the same thing

Lifted high, lifted high

If I had two hands doing the same thing

Lifted high, lifted high


Bridge:

And if we just keep digging we can reach the foundation

Of our souls

And if we just keep cutting all the chains from our hearts

We’ll lose control


And it feels like giving in

It feels like starting over

It feels like waking up, and you know it’s coming

It feels like a brand new day

Open your eyes


Chorus:

If I had two hands doing the same thing

Lifted high, lifted high


If I had two hands doing the same thing

Lifted high, lifted high, lifted high


Lifted high
