"We Don't Know Where We're Going" as written by and Ian Thomas/blackburn Ball....
The operation's on
Movin' forward
We don't know where we're goin',
But we're on our way

So raise the alarm
Movin' forward
We don't know where we're goin',
We're goin' our own way

So move away from home
it's happening
we don't know where we're goin'
but we're on our way

Pack up anything you own
it's happening
we don't know where we're goin'
we're goin' our own way

If we're gonna survive,
We gotta let go of you
I'm sorry that it took me so long
To open up and tell you the truth

The operation's on
Movin' forward
We don't know where we're goin',
But we're on our way

So raise the alarm
Movin' forward
We don't know where we're goin',
We're goin' our own way

If we're gonna survive,
We gotta let go of you
I'm sorry that it took me so long
To open up and tell you the truth

    General CommentSomebody in Gomez must be a fan of the goth band Bauhaus, because this song is clearly inspired by their style.
    I'm making a wild guess, just speculating, but I think that this song is about something... apocalyptic. Or that something bad is going to happen. It could also be metaphoric, that one relationship is really dragging him down, and he has to end it. "If we're gonna survivve, we gotta let go of you/ I'm sorry that it took me so long to open up and tell you the truth"
    Um... Yeah, that's my interpretation...

    General CommentIt could also be about leaving home, you know, getting kicked out of the nest by your parents to go to a college or join the military or get a job and an apartment or something:
    "So move away from home"
    This is kind of an apocolyptic feeling for teenagers about to be in their twenties. This could be an anthem of some sort for today's disillusioned youth, the kids with one leg in each world, who want to party but also want to make a difference.
