Focusing myself
Finding clues in you and everyone else
We're hearts on a shelf
Believing that we're saved
Sometimes these things aren't really supposed to work out this way
So what can you say

When finally there's no time like the moment to
Shine right through
I'm starting to understand what they mean when they say
This is gonna hurt

I'm still laughing at myself
Suspicious visions lay it all on somebody else
Cause I can't be held
Responsible for fate
Write down these words I can't understand what I create
It may be too late

When finally there's no time like the moment to
Shine right through
I'm starting to understand what they mean when they say
This is gonna hurt

If I'm asking
The wrong questions
Could you point me the right way
Cause what I've been searching for
Is something real, well defined
With a Buddha's heart and Nostradamus's
Thorn in my side
Let the feelings come to light

In the sound, it's our life
We can keep it up all night
And day sideways endlessly through and out
Round and round and round and round and round and round

Till finally there's no time like the moment to
Shine right through
I'm starting to understand what they mean when they say
This is gonna hurt
This is gonna hurt

    General CommentI can't make heads or tails of what the hell this song means, but I absolutely love it. The music and vocals are great, and I can't get enough of that chorus.

    This is one of those songs that is so vague in its lyricism that no one--and I do mean no one--can really make sense of it. This never stops people from guessing, but that's all it is. You may as well walk into an art museum with the lights off, and guess what the paintings look like.
