"Nowhere Again" as written by and Brandon Curtis Josh Garza....
Cellophane flowers never happened for me
I've been sleeping the day off, watching the night fall, covering nowhere
Filling my timeshare
There's a woman in the mirror in a fiery state
As she motions to me, I start turning a way
And she's lifting her dress up,
Trying to keep up

Oh, you'd be surprised!
How we race
While our lives
Erased

Another alone on an everyday night
Thinking the morning, looking for alright, warming blood flow with poison
I don't know why

Maybe the rain will stop following me
Dripping the colors, running the daylight, over the cloudburst
Hoping I don't burst

Right before my eyes!
Erased our lives
Erased

We know we're lost, we're lost, we're nowhere now
We know we're lost, we're lost, we're nowhere now
Now we know we're lost lost in nowhere now

Maybe the rain'll stop following me
With millions of colors reflected in daylight
Right on the kick drum
Turning the sound up, oh!
(Our lives) Another alone on an everyday night
I think in the morning I think I'll be alright (Erased)
Watching the blood flow
No wonder I don't know why (Our lives)
There's a woman in the mirror in a fiery state
She motions to me, I start pulling away (Erased)
She's lifting her dress up
All the way up, oh!

Don't look surprised
Erased
Our lives
Erased
Our lives
Erased

    General CommentThis is such a great song. The lyrics are so beautiful and the music matches it wonderfully. Great harmonizing by the Curtis brothers and awesome drumming by Garza. Good stuff. I'm looking forward to hopefully see this live someday, I've heard their live shows are the best. Excitement.

    General Commentyeah those artists are really deep and inspired, i just wish they could use their power of presenting visions to people, for some more optimistic visions to try and show solutions to that which they wine about, though that can be hard and leave people depressed say if the government doesn't pay attention and leaves the seeming reality lowly

    General Comment'You'd be surprised how we race

    We get so caught up with stupid things in our life. We need to slow down and look at the beautiful things and stop racing.

    'Warming the blood flow with poison
    I don't know why'

    possibly about drugs. i love this song.

    General CommentPretty much all of the songs on this album are about loneliness, and this one is no exception. The first like, "cellophane flowers never happened for me", is a refrence (most likely) to the hippie drug culture. Obviously, the liberation the Secret Machines were looking for when they turned to drugs and sex never happened. This song is them finally realizing that. But of course that sounds pretentious, it's just a good rock song.

    General CommentGreat song. Wonderful lyrics, and huge drive.
    Very insightful, PittsColt. I never made that connection with the cellophane flowers, but now it seems so obvious...

    General Commentbefore i always considered the "cellophane flowers" to be a false reality. Flowers are real, and ones made of cellophane are just a cheap imitation of reality. I thought he was saying that he has always lived a very real life. *shrug* The druggie hippie things works too though
