i still love this song

Yep, I introduced Army of One to my friend the other day. He didn't say whether he liked it or not but when XMTS started he says, "Ooh, what's this?" I was pleasantly surprised :nice:

It's still a mystery for me how's the end like in this song. Because I can hear Jonny has a solo in it,

but at the same time the sound has been lower down. And afterwards (near the end), there's something more. Not that it is super exciting but I am quite curious how they exactly do end the song.

I've wondered the same, and it makes me sad that it's only at the end where the guitar starts getting louder. A live version is in order!

But there's also muted guitar sound in the middle of the song.

I know:)

You mean that sort of pattern like ''dudududuDU du dudududuDU'', right? If you know what I mean.

Haha maybe. If you play Army of One go to 4:27, you'll hear it.

Ok, so in my quest for the official lyrics, here's what Amazon Music tells me the lyrics are. (I have to type this out because it won't let me copy.) The significant discrepancies are in bold.

 

(So I reach for it)

 

Stare into darkness, staring at doom

My heart go boom, bo-boom boom

Stare into darkness, admit defeat

Coming home and I'm finding no peace

 

And I know and I know and I know

I know I'm unlocked

And I know and I know and I know

I know what you've got

 

I put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive

Got a rocketship that I want to ride

Put my hands up to the sky, it's all right

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

 

(So I reach for it)

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it)

 

Stare into darkness, staring at doom

You make my heart go boom, bo-boom boom

Superhero, a masterpiece

Been innocent but a sinner in me

 

And I know and I know and I know

I know I'm in love

And I know and I know and I know

I know when I'm lost

 

I just put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive

Got a rocketship that I want to ride

Put my hands up to the sky, feeling insight

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

 

Put my hands up to the sky, feelin' alive

I got a rocket, eyes on the prize

Put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

 

So I reach for it

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

So I reach for it, yeah, yeah

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

 

(So I reach for it)

And I know and I know, and I know

Know what I got (so I reach for it)

X marks the spot

 

So I put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive

Got a rocketship that I want to ride

Put my hands up to the sky, feeling insight

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

Put my hands up to the sky, feelin' alive

I got a locket, eyes on the prize

Put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find

Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

Yeah, yeah, wherever you are

Here's the vocal version of this song:

[MEDIA=googledrive]0BzFcZ9uRSUGidDd0OXhfU05CZDg[/MEDIA]

Surprisingly, he sings "so I race for it" at the 1:55 mark.

Here are the adjusted lyrics based on what I have learned so far (contrast this to what I had a few posts ago):

 

(So I race for it)

 

Staring at darkness, staring at doom

My heart bo-boom, bo-boom boom

Staring at darkness, and let defeat

Come along when I'm finding no peace

And I know and I know and I know

I know I'm unlocked

And I know and I know and I know

I know what you got

 

So I put my hands up into the sky, I feel alive

Got a rocketship that I wanna ride

Put my hands up into the sky, it's so right

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

 

(So I race for it)

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

(So I race for it)

 

Stare into darkness, staring at doom

You make my heart bo-boom, bo-boom boom

Superhero, a masterpiece

Been in a saver, the center in me

And I know and I know and I know

I know I'm in love

And I know and I know and I know

I know when I'm lost

 

I just put my hands up into the sky, I feel alive

Got a rocketship that I wanna ride

Put my hands up into the sky, feeling insight

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

Put my hands up into the sky, feelin' alight

I got a rocket, eyes on the prize

Put my hands up into the sky, I'm gonna fight

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

 

So I race for it

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

So I race for it, yeah, yeah

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

 

(So I race for it)

And I know and I know, and I know

I know what I got (so I race for it)

X marks the spot

 

So I put my hands up into the sky, I feel alive

Got a rocketship that I wanna ride

Put my hands up into the sky, feeling insight

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

Put my hands up into the sky, feelin' alight

I got a locket, eyes on the prize

Put my hands up into the sky, I'm gonna fight

Wherever you are, I find that treasure

 

If anyone can separate the vocals out from this track, maybe we can use it to make an instrumental... Anybody out there? :)

it sounds like he says "race" both times here, not just the first time :thinking:

I have always heard it like "race", or could it be "raise" (since it is put my hands up into the sky)

OK, I'll put it in here too:

 

If you are putting links to the 5.1 Surround version files on the forums, please do it only in the Multimedia section.

Btw, Stephen specifically asked not to share them " in public". (otherwise I could have saved myself all the DM work).

It's only 1/6th of a song, and it's not like I'm sharing all of them. I think it's fine.

Oh, yes, that was just my Careless Evil Twin forgetting to change it. I'll fix it right now.

it's interesting how they treat so-called "hidden" tracks... Life is For Living and Til Kingdom Come both have their own lyric pages, but Chinese Sleep Chant and The Escapist aren't mentioned at all (for CSC it makes some sense because the lyrics aren't THAT intelligible anyway, and i suppose The Escapist really only has one line of lyrics)

It's still strange why those songs (that actually have lyrics, despite being just a few lines) don't have lyric pages and songs like AHT, MX and even CS do...
