And so I stopped for a minute.
I stopped and stood still and let time pass or run out a lot sooner than I can or I will.
And I could give a fuck about voices or pictures or what we’ve known or what we’ve said cause it’s all wrapped up in star or stripes or left to awful dreams inside my head.
I’m failing to understand what I’ve never looked for over a shoulder, all the while overstepping the obvious, falling short or shame.
Putting my hand over my heart, but forgetting its name.
My finger’s on the pulse… and though this pen writes we still live in a world waiting to be written.

    General CommentI think this song has a good tune and as always(at least in my opinion) killer lyrics by billy. I think in general this song is about uncertainty and the fact that nothing in this world/life is pre-determined

    General Commenti think this song is about writing songs/lyrics, and maybe art in general. i like that it isnt really explaining things, but rather self reflecting, taking the momentum and writing it down. but thats probably my view on the song.
    its a strong song, and a great split with light the fuse and run.
