Gravity is the third single released from the band's fourth album, Day of the Dead.

Background

J-Dog spoke with Artist Direct about the track. "We wanted to do a rock song, but not a heavier one. It's harder to write a song with more palatability but not sell out at the same time. Johnny came up with the concept of gravity. It's something that holds you down. We talked about reminiscing on the past and how people can get stuck on that. That's what that song is about."

Music video

On August 4, the band announced on Twitter that a music video for Gravity is being made. On September 1, the music video was released on the band's official Vevo channel.

Lyrics

Danny: 'Cause I
I think of you now and then
The memories never end
When gravity pulls you in

Charlie Scene: I remember looking back
Converse and a starter cap
Now I'm sitting wishing that
Wishing I could just go back
I was happy with no fame
Ford Fiesta, switching lanes
Buying 40's with some change
Them southern California days

J-Dog: I watch you pass me by
My words, they can't describe
But I can see the gravity
Way up from the sky
We leave the past behind
'Cause we all wanna fly
Deep down in life, you can't deny
We're all the same inside

Danny: 'Cause I
I think of you now and then
The memories never end
When gravity pulls you in

'Cause I
I think of you now and then
We'll never be there again
When gravity pulls you in

Da Kurlzz and Danny: Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity

Funny Man: I remember looking back
Walking 'round, sagging Khak
Dime sacks, alley cats
Burnt out, always slack
Now I got a platinum plaque
And life seems to stay the same
Knowing that I'll never change
Southern California days

Johnny 3 Tears: Gravity can't stop
The hope in the have-nots
This artery's a part of me
And blood is all I'm gonna be
I'm gonna see concrete
Bottles in bad dreams
I'm everything and anything
A memory that never leaves

Danny: 'Cause I
I think of you now and then
The memories never end
When gravity pulls you in

'Cause I
I think of you now and then
We'll never be there again
When gravity pulls you in

Deep in the black is the place I call home
Taking me back to the place I belong
Deep in the black, I can find my way home
Please take me back to the place I belong

Danny: 'Cause I
I think of you now and then
The memories never end
When gravity pulls you in
(Gravity, gravity pulls you in!)

'Cause I
I think of you now and then
The memories never end
When gravity pulls you in

Da Kurlzz and Danny: Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
Oh, gravity
