Watchin' the world with my highway eyes
Watchin' the world from the windows that I've known
These mobile homes
Loneliness was a friend of mine
But with you that's through
And I feel home
Away from home
(Away from home x2)

Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, with time to kill
Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, rebuild rebuild

We build a fire in the pouring rain
But there's so many noisy voices
Oh, I get so cold
The city lights and the midnight train
I hate to say it but I get caught letting go
Of the things I know
Do not conform to this
Do not conform

Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, with time to kill
Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, rebuild rebuild
(Rebuild!)

Every life comes with a broken heart
Dying here to be made whole
We are the lost souls with a second start
Following the builder home
There's a temple I found in the strangest part
Where the stones are built of souls
Where the builder himself has promised love
I'm never gonna let you go, go

Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, with time to kill
Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh, rebuild rebuild

Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, with time to kill
Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, rebuild rebuild x3
Oh way oh, we're the regeneration
Oh way oh, rebuild rebuild
Rebuild!

    General Commentgood job on the lyrics! almost all of it is right! here are the lyrics they posted on their site:

    Watching the world with my highway eyes
    watching the world from the windows that I've known
    these mobile homes

    Loneliness was a friend of mine
    But with you that's through and I feel home
    away from home
    away from home
    away from home

    oh we're the regeneration
    oh with time to kill
    oh we're the regeneration
    oh rebuild, rebuild

    you lit a fire in the pouring rain
    but there's so many noisy voices
    oh! I get so cold.

    the city lights and the midnight train
    I hate to say it but I get caught letting go
    of the things I know

    do not conform to this
    do not conform

    oh we're the regeneration
    oh with time to kill
    oh we're the regeneration
    oh rebuild, rebuild

    every life comes with a broken heart
    dying here to be made whole
    we are the lost souls with a second start
    following the builder home
    there's a temple I've found in the strangest part
    where the stones are built of souls
    where the builder himself has promised, "love,
    I'm never going to let you go. Go!"

    oh we're the regeneration
    oh with time to kill
    oh we're the regeneration
    oh rebuild, rebuild

    Rebuild.

    General CommentI know this song was meant for the San Fransisco fire and how they have to rebuild their homes, but when I first heard this song, I thought of how it could also be about rebuilding a relationship.

    Watching the world with my highway eyes
    watching the world from the windows that I've known
    these mobile homes

    Loneliness was a friend of mine
    But with you that's through and I feel home
    away from home
    away from home
    away from home

    That could mean how it sucks being angry or away from you, and you make me feel so unalone.

    oh we're the regeneration
    oh with time to kill
    oh we're the regeneration
    oh rebuild, rebuild

    It could mean that I have the opwer to rebuild the relationship and I have the power to love.

    you lit a fire in the pouring rain
    but there's so many noisy voices
    oh! I get so cold.

    the city lights and the midnight train
    I hate to say it but I get caught letting go
    of the things I know

    Again, it's hard away from you. By you, I don't mean the "you" in the song. I mean you as in the person/god you love.

    do not conform to this
    do not conform

    This could mean kind of like don't get used to me being away or being angry at you, because I want to rebuild the relationship.

    every life comes with a broken heart
    dying here to be made whole
    we are the lost souls with a second start
    following the builder home
    there's a temple I've found in the strangest part
    where the stones are built of souls
    where the builder himself has promised, "love,
    I'm never going to let you go. Go!"

    Again, I have the power to love again. I can fix this.

    That's what I thought when I listened to this. Any thoughts?

    General CommentI think that it's really talking about God, "Where the builder himself has promised love"...

    I don't know.

    Hey! Wasn't this song done with Relient K? I'm pretty sure it was.

    General CommentThis song seems to have a double meaning, but when I think of it I love to think of the spiritual aspect of it.
    Yeah, this Song was done with Reliant K, and Ruth.

    I think f how people seem lost and confused and lonely in a world, The underdogs With nothing else to strive for. People who are down and out, and Even literally, people who don't think they are worth much or live in conditions they feel are 'lowly' and feel unworthy. But the thing about it is, it seems to be also written to Christians, or people who know better but haven't decided to do better.
    So many people have talent or hope, or have the ability to do more. It inspires them to get out of that situation,, it 'Dares them to move'. In moving, it lets them no that there is hope. God has promised to pick up the broken pieces of their life an put them together. That's what he died for, To remove our Sins and heal our broken hearts if we let him. Even though things seem low... don't let it get you down, and don't give up. Don't conform to the negativity of the world...Rebuild...

    So... Its literal, and its about a relationship... Rebuild...

    General Commenti've only heard this song like once and it was live yes it was done with relient k and also ruth but it was amazing!! and i'm sure it has many meanings. We all interpret thinigs differently and it has the potential to mean so much more than the obvious
