"You'll wake up wrapped in winter if you sleep through summer."
"Hey, thanks for the tip, but I doubt that you've got it covered."

We'll use spring and fall as buffers while our skin gets tougher.
And you? You can cling like clichés to one another.

We're taught to take precautions.
We take more than our share.
The cautious steps we're taking can't take us anywhere.

We sprang forward and fell back,
and we heard our clocks ask: "Hey, you! If time's a constant, why am I constantly under attack?"
So, we held its hands to help it, but our hearts were selfish.
Sometimes the best intentions end up intense without means to quell it.

So, we poisoned our blood streams and we blackened our lungs.
We've enabled the edifice that it's how we belong.
We may suffer together, but we all die alone.

    i think this part is saying how all our lives were taught to like live safe and take necessary precautions and whatnot, and then we're selfish in nature and that those precautions arent really going to help us in the end and that we should just live life without being too cautious.


    "We sprang forward and fell back,
    and we heard our clocks ask: "Hey, you! If time's a constant, why am I constantly under attack?""

    and then this part, i dont know what it MEANS, but the literal meaning would be daylight savings time. thats what theyre referring to i mean.

    "So, we poisoned our blood streams and we blackened our lungs." and then this part is giving examples of all the bad things we do to our bodies.

    im not sure how the three connect. someone wanna help me out and tell me im wrong most likely? ha

    that part makes me think of drinking (posioned our blood streams) and Smoking (blackend out lungs)..

    "We may suffer together, but we all die alone." amazing line. and so very true.
