One foot closer every step faster
Catastrophe avoided were in the same place
Reaching surface eyes to the wall
Watch when we fall dont look away see it all
I sit embraced by this disgrace
You move elegant silence my regrets

Grasping clichés nothings changed
Im just the same as before, Ive looked no further
Grasping clichés all sound the same
Im just the same as before, Ive looked no further

Weve been building relentless unforgiving
Destroying and making while they were suffering
They scream and they cry weve only time to say goodbye
It was over before we left forgive forget dont pretend
I sit embraced by this disgrace you move elegant silence my regrets

Grasping clichés nothings changed
Im just the same as before, Ive looked no further
Grasping clichés all sound the same
Im just the same as before, Ive looked no further

Grasping clichés
Weve not changed
I bet you wont change a thing
All they need is your charity
Messed around enough to know
Which directions good to go
You are just as responsible
Dont turn your eyes to the wall
Need to see this for yourself
Need to save them from this hell

Grasping clichés nothings changed
Im just the same as before, Ive looked no further
Grasping clichés nothings changed
Im just the same as before, Ive looked no further

    General Commenti can't help but think there's something missing from this song when i listen to it.

    General CommentI'm not too sure why but i get a feeling this songs about the current shit state of the world! how everyone's trying to "help" and in the end turning a blind eye and leaving it even worse than before! (American's i mean you!!)! Just consider these:

    Weve been building,
    Destroying and making while they were suffering,
    It was over before we left.

    basically just showing up, make the place "better" (or so they think), and then move onto somewhere else even though they have no reason to! Just think Iraq, Afghanistan!

    And the whole "turning your eyes to the wall"-just looking away, and not really fixing anything-"nothing's changed, i looked no further"!

    General CommentAt some points it seems like it's talking about a relationship starting again after it's been messed up before -
    "Grasping clichés nothings changed
    Im just the same as before, Ive looked no further"
    But what deceptive said fits better with the whole song so I'll go with that.
    I love this song.
