Daylight can never really hide what’s alive
I know it's hard sometimes
For you to tell where you end
And where the world begins

You do your best to avoid assimilation
Guess that's the best you can do

And though the parts of it that matter change
All traces disintegrate

At night
My mind's exhausted and
Drained out of thought
And can't get back up
And when you know
How few things there are worth knowing
I suppose anyone who tries could forget

Responding now
To trains that crash before you
Never thought crashing could happen to you

And though the parts of it that matter change
All traces disintegrate

    General CommentThis song is about how life never stands still and in time, averything you do today will be unimportant and forgotten. It's about how we all must adapt to today and forget about yesterday.

    General CommentI love the line

    I know it's hard sometimes
    For you to tell where you end
    And where the world begins

    Its something we all need to know.

    General CommentThose lines remind me of EELS - Climbing To The Moon

    Got a sky that looks like heaven
    Got an earth that looks like shit
    And it's getting hard to tell where
    What I am ends
    And what they're making me begins

    General CommentAt night my
    mind get's on this
    train of thought
    I can't get back off
