I found it difficult
To be a storytelling failure
For all those years
Living was a challenge
That caught me so off-balance
And passed me by

Repeatedly, I stared my future in the face
She walks away
Her silhouette confirming my worst predictions
She walks away

Hope is just four disconnected letters
Combined and put together
By a disconnected man who missed the point
My life was just a promise
That I uttered, then I broke it
And admitted as we all went up in flames

So I made a resolution that I'd pay back planet earth
I would send out this faded portrait
Maybe we would all live on
We'd soar on

I waited for a miracle
On a planet based on push and pull
And nothing changed

And one day, someone spoke inside of me
"Young man, rise and make your mark"
So today I will be free
With no one there to see
With no one there to see

So I made a resolution that I'd pay back planet earth
I would send out this faded portrait
Maybe we would all live on
We'd soar on
So I strapped it to a rocket and I sent it into space
Praying someday you would find it
Maybe we would all live on
We'd soar on (x3)

    General CommentThe correct lyrics for the EP version are as follows:


    ---


    i found it difficult
    to be a storytelling failure
    for all those years

    living was a challenge
    that caught me so off-balance
    and passed me by

    repeatedly, i stared my future in the face
    she walked away
    her silhouette confirming my worst predictions
    she walks away

    hope is just four disconnected letters
    combined and put together
    by a disconnected man who missed the point
    my life was just a promise
    that i uttered, then i broke it
    and admitted as we all went up in flames

    so i made a resolution that i'd pay back planet earth
    and i would send out this faded portrait
    maybe we would all live on
    we'd soar on

    so i strapped it to a rocket and i sent it into space
    praying someday you would find it
    maybe we would all live on
    we'd soar on

    in all my years existing
    as a storytelling failure
    for all those years

    i waited for a miracle
    on a planet based on push and pull
    and nothing changed

    and one day, someone spoke inside of me:
    "young man, rise and make your mark"
    so today i will be free
    with no one there to see
    with no one there to see

    hope is just four disconnected letters
    combined and put together
    by a disconnected man who missed the point
    my life was just a promise
    that i uttered, then i broke it
    and admitted as we all went up in flames

    (so i made a resolution...)

    so i made a resolution that i'd pay back planet earth
    and i would send out this faded portrait
    maybe we would all live on
    we'd soar on

    so i strapped it to a rocket and i sent it into space
    praying someday you would find it
    maybe we would all live on
    we'd soar on

    so i made a resolution that i'd pay back planet earth
    and i would send out this faded portrait
    maybe we would all live on
    we'd soar on

    so i strapped it to a rocket and i sent it into space
    praying someday you would find it
    maybe we would all live on
    we'd soar on

    General Commenti have absolutely no clue what it means... but if you guys like simply hearing this song.. imagine it live... the entire crowd gets so into it because it is soooo upbeat i have seen em twice and they have awesome stage presence.. although the vocals could use a little work.. they're still good =]

    General CommentI think it's about having all these plans for the future, but then when the future came it turned out to be something he was never hoping for. And now he's basically trying to change that and make his mark on the earth...
    I'm pretty sure it's something along those lines.

    I also kinda thought it could be about how our world's falling apart. Like due to poverty, global warming and such. But that's probably incorrect.
