These are the keys, these are the keys
To a pulse that I've been monitoring
She loves to dream, she loves to dream
But dreamers chase and never obtain
A victory, a victory
A vicious hand on a violent streak
Learn to run, learn to run
I'll never be right for anyone

The more it gets suggested, the more I'm uninterested
Strength for now, nothing later
Love it or leave it
Hated and left it
Trying to outgrow that phase

I'm drifting further away from my element

These are the keys, these are the keys
To open minds and to empathy
She loves to dream, she loves to dream
It's better than her reality
A victory, a victory
I'm not as old as I use to be
I will not run
Today is the day
The wheels are back on the motor-arcade

All of my ammunition is for the wrong weapon
I've got the worst intention
No question, no question
To keep it inoffensive, general admission
For when you feel protected, I'll make you regret it

Don't leave me in the dark

    General Commentthis is my favorite song of 2007! their new album, their new sound is totally awesome!

    hmmm maybe about a girl wanting to be with a guy, but he doesnt want her? "she loves to dream, but dreamers chase and never obtain"..."The more it gets suggested, the more I'm uninterested"...something to do with relationships..?

    i thought the last verse was about war before i read the lyrics, i could hear ammunition, weapon, general. and i thought the last lines were 'dont leave me here to die' lolz i guess i was way off base.

    great song though.

    General CommentI'd also have to say it's "just leave me here to die."
    it's a great song. I'm still trying to break it down and
    figure out it's true intended meaning. which will most likely take me several more run-throughs. sweet wails.

    My InterpretationMy interpretation:

    This song is about trying to get back into the swing of relationships, but failing due to becoming uninterested or turned off every time you get closer to anyone. And when it comes down to a decision, 'love it or leave it', he ends up 'hating it and leaving it'. He gets close in the second verse, but again fails by the second chorus. He tries anyway again, but pessimistically realizes that he's just going to hurt the person he's with when they feel most vulnerable. He realizes that he's getting older, and by the end of the song has lost hope in ever being right for anyone.
