Can we take the streets?
'Cause there's a horrible crash.
Well standing on the highway,
a girl and her Dad.
But you say yeah,

it's far too much for me,
far too fast of scenery
but your voice,

and your lips are moving words
that I cannot breach the noise.
But just remember always move fast.

We know you,
we own you.

Go home
and leave me at the door
or we can stay outside
of your house and just
wait for the morning.

Well I heard you
can't stay too long
the morning's got you worried.
Because the sun holds a
sea of troubles and an early drive away.

So I guess I'll just stay for a while
I guess you knew just from how I smiled.

Because there's no hurry
more like fucking nursery on a beautiful trial.
Just remember always move fast.

We know you,
we own you.

Go home
and leave me at the door
or we can stay outside
of your house and just
wait for the morning.
Cause I've seen your sadness grow
and it swallows these days until it hurts to breathe

She whispers,

thanks for your time tonight,
but, you are not awake yet
you are not awake, I swear.

She screams

it's all been in your dreams
with nothing tangible.
The girl, this house, the highway,
your mind made it real.

Just remember always move fast...

    General CommentTo me, this song is about a girl who's just focused on everything wrong with this world (the car crash, sea of troubles, see your sadness). She meets this boy who tells her to live her life not lingering on those things and "always move fast", as to not let her sadness linger and swallow everything. At first she listens for while "I might stay for a while".
    She tells him he's living a world he's dreaming about "you're not awake." "your mind made it real. She thinks he's not awake enough to see the world as it really is; full of a soulful sadness. She leaves repeating his words to him "always move fast" is saying not to waste his time thinking about her.

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who's trying to snap his girl out of a state of depression or something. Something traumatic happened to her, and he's helping her get her old life back again, telling her, "always move fast." to protect her, he steers her away from potentially upsetting things, like a car crash. he thinks she's making progress, since she's smiling and such.

    and then the last part hits; she's the one who's okay with the whole thing now, and he's the one who can't snap out of it. the car crash was all in his head, because depressing things like that are lingering in his memory. she leaves, reminding him to "always move fast," what he's often told her and she's followed, while letting himself stagnate.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about him dreaming of a girl.

    "Well I heard you cant stay too long
    the mornings got you worried
    The sun holds a sea of troubles
    and an early drive away"

    She knows that when the sun comes he'll wake up, the dream will be over and she will be gone.


    "She whispers...
    Thanks for your time tonight
    but you are not awake yet
    you are not awake I swear

    It's all been in your dreams
    of nothing tangible
    The girl, this house, the highway
    your mind made it real."

    She's telling him it's all nothing but a dream.
    Nothing that has happen, is real.

    That's what I think ^_^

    General CommentI think it is basically saying to "always move fast" and never really get attached to anything.

    General CommentI honestly think that the last stanza of the song is the vital part.
    I honestly think that this girl is a big metaphor for something. Like something bigger than a person. I'm not exactly sure. It's really hard to understand. It confuses me.
