As we sit around watching days go by
Afraid to ask the questions because of the answers we may find.
Comfort breeds contentment.
Confrontation fosters resentment and slowly we grow cold
As we watch ourselves implode.

Cynicism is not a sign of intelligence.
Deny the spirit, a crime of negligence.
Pushing back what has been given.
Come to terms with the way we are living.

Observing the light's dying glow.
As we watch ourselves implode.
Mocking what we don't understand.
Biting off the giving hand.

Our poorest questions answered in fact,
Never think of offering back.
We must be scared of contemplation.
Out will to search, lost in isolation.


And so it goes.
And so we go.
And so it goes along and so we move along.
Cut the nose.
Spite the face.
On this road without a trace.
Without a trace.

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Stretch songs. The lyrics are real and make you think.

    I think this song is talking about faith and how people have a hard time dealing with it because if you contemplate faith you have deal with the reality that you might be in the wrong.

    The lyrics "Cut the nose, Spite the face" are talking about doing injury to yourself in order to spite someone else.
