I'll stop the day
You'll rise again
Don't count the news man to signal the end
'Cos you can trust your farthest friends across the world

We'll take the car
You're in the room but your head's in the stars
You can run, but you can't hide who you are

He couldn't stay
Thanksgiving's gone
His growing children continue his song
He was young
Did nothing wrong

I tried to say I miss you tonight
And they claim you've already died
But the truth is that we're lost in time
We're lost in time
We're lost in time
We're losing time

These haunted dreams are brushed aside
We'll meet again
Another life

I tried to say I miss you tonight
And they claim you've already died
But the truth is that we're lost in time
We're lost in time
We're lost in time
We're losing time
Time...

    General CommentI believe the first word is 'Unstop" not "I'll" stop the day. This tune grew on me. Yeah, there's some pictures of you by the cure in there, but then there's some Joy division in pictures of you. This is a great song all on its own, and thats all that matters.

    General CommentThis song has now become something much more to me. I am now one of the growing number of men who lose their children because the current legal system allows ex spouses to make false allegations with ease. Thus I and my children are in the 'lost in time' phase where missing, longing, uncertainty, fear, and hope are the turns on a never ending emotional rollercoaster. So, I listen to this song for my and my children's souls.

    General CommentThis is about Dr. Liara T'Soni and regards what she was doing on Omega about a month after the attack on the Alliance SSV Normandy SR1, as well as the events that followed.

    "I'll stop the day
    You'll rise again
    Don't count the news man to signal the end
    'Cos you can trust your farthest friends across the world"
    In other words, the news vids say the Commander is dead. But Dr. T'Soni is doing everything she can to make sure that won't remain true. Even though she's not sure she's making the right decision. But even in death, the Commander can trust her.

    "We'll take the car
    You're in the room but your head's in the stars
    You can run, but you can't hide who you are"
    They take the taxi on Illium but there's distance between them, and Dr. T'Soni realizes the whole Cerberus thing is making the Commander unlike herself. But Liara also knows the Commander is still who she always was, and that she'll realize it herself eventually.

    "We're lost in time
    We're lost in time
    We're losing time
    Time..."
    There's only so much time before the Reapers come.
