To come apart in mountain tops is to come apart in rain,
every note creates a picture of
a road worn over again.
You speak only in memories
but what memories dictate
is if you don't know what you want
then what you want won't wait.
And he sparks a ten center
as an epilogue awaits,
it's a centre of attention
and it's a road we won't leave behind.

So far away
and I'm free from disguise,
but I can see the devil hiding
in the circles around your eyes.
What do I signify when
lifetime's away -
I can see that look in northern faces
and looks are made from far off places.

And maybe the life waits over the hill
over the hill while I wait

    General CommentThis song appears to be about a state of despair, longing, and regret. The intense, heavy, ominous guitar work, and buildup to the plaintive refrain ("Maybe the life waits over the hill/Over the hill while I wait") indicate a sense of utter disillusionment and detachment prevalent in other songs Idlewild has done (for example, the aptly-named "Disconnected.")
