"Steps And Numbers" as written by Christopher A. Crisci, Aaron Pillar and Marcus Jordan Young....
Are you wishing on a star?
Did you know your dreams are sold,
To people who dream only of gold?
They'll find a way to pull stars down.

Stand there,
Dance with,
Stand there dance with a memory.
The caption reads, "It's all over now."

Stand there,
Dance with,
Stand there dance with a memory.
The caption reads, "It's all over now."

Do you feel alone in the secret?
Are you standing there just weeping?
Do you feel the light is gone?
Is it hard to remain strong
In the face of all you know,
In a world that's brought you low?

Stand there,
Dance with,
Stand there dance with a memory.
The caption reads, "It's all over now."

Do you feel alone in the secret?
Are you standing there just weeping?

    General CommentHow could anyone create something so absolutely mindblowing? This song is unbelievable. I have been a huge fan of AC for years, and I still could not make sense of this song as a whole. I disagree with peoples' idea of it being about corporates. I think the "do you know your dreams are sold to those who dream of only gold" is just a figure of speech for something else. Each verse has its own meaning to me. Either way, the song is just rediculous.

    General CommentHow is it possible that a song can make me feel depressed yet make me feel hopeful about the future at the same time?

    General Commentto me this song is about corporate greed. and how big business, govornment, and all other leaders of the nation tend to take the life out everything. they are heartless wretches searching for ways to fill their pockets. i think appleseed incorporates the 'greed' storyline throughout the entire low level owl series. its nice to hear meaningful, beautiful music....about something other than heartache and loneliness...though this song can make one feel quite lonely. it is still beautiful in every aspect of the word.
    (breath of relief)....finally a band that can right wonderful, meaningful, breath-taking music. all within stride.
