Oh, the life you lead
Leads you to distraction
Confusing your desires
With voluntary actions
And a hundred thousand destinations
The plans that you've forgotten
And the fruits of all your labor
Are slowly going rotten

And the blanket of the city
Will never keep you warm
And the pages of our history
Have treated you with warmth

Oh, the time we need
Is passing every day
You can blame it on
The words we never say

Oh, the world is love
Strings and chain reactions
Never-ending fires
Heartache and attractions

And the blanket of the city
Will never keep you warm
And the pages of our history
Have treated you with warmth

Oh, the time we need
Is passing every day
You can blame it on the
Words we never say

    General CommentJust found this band and love them like I love orphan puppies.

    By my own humble interpretation, and based on what I know about the band and where they come from, this is a song about acute small-town-itis.

    The writer is talking about getting stuck in one place and in one mode of your life. Becoming confused about where and how we continue forward in life. A rut that's so easily fallen into. And "the blanket of this city will never make you warm" is saying that staying in your small town hell will never make you happy. Stop retreading the worn pages of our past happiness as kids and teenagers. Move on.
