Cage The Elephant – Come A Little Closer lyrics

[Verse 1]
Time shakes, found you at the water
At first you were my father, and now I love you like a brother
Earthquakes shake the dust behind you
This world at times will blind you
Still I know I'll see you there

[Chorus]
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren’'t always what they seem to be
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you've been seeing
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming
Come a little closer then you'll see

[Verse 2]
Heartbreaks, the heavy world's upon your shoulders
Will we burn or we just smolder
So now I know I found you there
Mmm, wanna see if you can change it, change it
Still I know I'll see you there

[Chorus]
Come a little closer, then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Things aren'’t always what they seem to be
Do you understand the things that you've been seeing
Come on, come on, come on
Do you understand the things that you’'ve been dreaming
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come a little closer then you'll see

[Bridge]
Ten thousand people stand alone now
And in the evening the sun sets
Tomorrow it will rise
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, they all sing along
Time flies by, by

[Chorus]
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come on, come on, come on
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come a little closer then you'll see
Come a little closer then you'll see

    I like this song, in feel, and structure, and the forlorn sounding bridge with the heavy bass. Some of the lyrics like many songs kinda flew by me, but I had an inkling the chorus, and the line "things aren't always what they seem to be" jumped out, some dismiss simply as a cliche like human proximity or invitation thereof, which could be one meaning as if opening up to another. But I think there's a deeper Spiritual meaning, invitin' the listener as to a closer walk with God, is actual meaning of book of Habakkuk. To see things or attempt to as God does. 2 Kings 6:16,17 Elisha is fast asleep in tent, and his servant is freaked out by by the enemies surrounding them. He rousts Elisha, who prays God peel back the firmament of this worlds cover to reveal the spiritual world, with God's army round them in a great number in chariots of fire. Elisha states calmly "see there's more on our side than theirs." This is a preliminary look of Jesus asleep in boat in Mark 4. Calms the storm. Wow, while writing this song just came on radio 98.7! It kinda revved up my spirit!
