how many times will I sit when I should stand
how many times have my dreams been just beyond my hand
how many times have I compromised
how many times have I told myself these lies

how many times will I walk the beaten path
how many times will I end up dead last
how many times will I watch it pass me by
how many times will I bury what's inside

well i know someday
i will find the means
and i will find the time
and i will find a way
to realize my dreams and leave it all behind

    General CommentI think this song has a lot of meaning behind it...probably different meanings, as well. To me, it is a song about regret and having not done something that was right, or not expressing yourself when you had the chance; it's about having the ability to make a change, but never doing it, and wishing you could. That's what I see anyway...

    General CommentWas not too big of a fan of First Impressions. Much different sound, and with it being the first album, it was not put together as well due to lack of support. The outer meaning seems to talk about learning from mistakes, and use mistakes to help accomplish your dreams. Though as with all Thrice songs, it probably has some deeper meaning, that I have completely missed.
