He tries to see, although he can't
He tries, but doesn't understand
He calls on a different phone-line
No one that he knows
An out of focus acquaintance
Speaking in a silent parlance "Remember me", breaks the silence
A recurring line again
He's looking for something
Can't see that he's stranded
He's just moving/going somewhere
He just can't stand this feeling no more
He feels the blood run through his veins
Tries to get up, be young again
His face in the bathroom mirror
Someone looks at him
His undisputed kind of self-love
Weaker than it used to be like "Don't forget me", breaks the silence
A different life begins
He's looking for something
Can't see that he's stranded
He's just moving/going somewhere
He just can't stand this feeling no more
Looks in the mirror, feels the snag
Packs his bag and picks a map "Don't forget me", seems inapt
He doesn't want to know "Don't forget me"
He's looking for something
Can't see that he's stranded
He's just moving/going somewhere
He just can't stand this feeling no more
He's waiting for something
Becoming a vision
He's just moving/going somewhere
He just can't stand this feeling no more.

    General Commentgod, i hate north america!!!! (At least in terms of music)

    this is the 1st song i've heard of tragedy of theatre and they have how many albums out? 7-8? geez

    well, this song seems to be about a man who's been forgotten over time. He wants to be remembered (maybe wanted.)

    there are a few diff meanings i could come up with:

    1-he's been forgotten from the spotlight, like a famous singer/actor, b/c of the "His undisputed kind of self-love" line which implies he was full of himself and maybe cocky.

    the other seems to be maybe he woke up from a coma or something. cause of lines "His face in the bathroom mirror, Someone looks at him" like he's aged, and almost doesnt recognize himself.

    of course, the aged thing might just be because he wasted his life away. Maybe he's just a workaholic, and he worked so much, that every1 around him has forgotten him, and nobody remembers him, and now he's old, and realises life has passed him off.

    and in the end, he's "moving/going somewhere" to perhaps find a new path in life.

    any feedback?

    General CommentIt can be so relatable. It's probably about a lonely man who wants to be normal and tries to make contact with people he knew back then (He calls on a different phone-line No one that he knows An out of focus acquaintance Speaking in a silent parlance "Remember me", breaks the silence A recurring line again). But he doesn't give up since he's concentrating all his energy on emphasizing a normal social life (Tries to get up, be young again).
