Gravity (Reg Mombassa) - Gravity begins as almost a novelty song about the obvious dangers to humans from gravitational attraction in terms of falling. It then shifts gear to present gravity as a metaphor for romantic obsession and then as an analogue for mental illness.

Lyrics

Gravity
(Reg Mombassa)
Gravity gets you down 
It pulls you to the ground
 Keep us in a state of fear of falling 
I said to Newton I said to Einstein 
All the things that weigh us down
 Are just as you described
 Oh gravity make us all fall down
Bang bang on the ground
 Keep us in a state of fear of falling
 You keep us in a state of falling
 Whoa gravity you’ve been spinning me round Who a gravity you’ve been dragging me down Gravity make us all fall down
 Bang bang on the ground
 Keep us in a state of fear of falling
 You keep us in a state of falling 
When you fall you don’t float
Like a feather on the breeze 
All you do is fall into a big black hole Gravity is everywhere
 There’s nowhere you can hide
Even when you’re sleeping
 She will weigh upon your mind
 Oh gravity make us all fall down
 Bang bang on the ground
 Keep us in a state of fear of falling
 You keep us in a state of falling 
Whoa gravity you’ve been spinning me round Whoa gravity you’ve been dragging me down
