Don't aim without a target
Where will we end up?
Don't tamper with the compass dial
Where will it take us?
We're headed back to the start
Feels like it's over
Don't aim without a target
Where will we end up?
When the fountain did fall from the sky
There'd be a thousand witnesses

But the crowd hears screams
We don't see a thing
Our eyes are open
Are we looking the right way?
Cause we don't see a thing
Our minds are open
There'll be a thousand witnesses
There'll be a thousand witnesses
Stay in place
Use it right
It was an anchor
Pour concrete on the roots
Just to make sure, just to make sure
You'll never move

If a fountain did fall from the sky
There'd be a thousand witnesses

Our eyes are open
We're headed back to start
It feels like it's over
We're headed back to the start
It feels like
It was an anchor
Pour concrete on the roots
Just to make sure, just to make sure
You'll never move

    General Commentits about religion, and a search for god, lines like

    if a fountain did fall from the sky, therd be a thousand witnesses our eyes are open. -it means if just one evidence of gods exsistence was there one miracle so to speak, then all would see because so many are searching.

    it was an anchor refers to how religion tells people what to do, so they listen, if you sin your going to hell for instance. so in that sense its an anchor holding them there and religion can collect your money and in a sense control you. so they tell you that to cement you in or pour concrete on your roots, so they can keep using you.

    General Commentmmk, i think this song has to do with Juturna. it sounds like its about the band and the type of music they want to create. The whole thing about "dont aim without a target and the compas dail" have to do with the fact that they have trouble deciding and sticking to their song ideas, which is what the title On Letting Go is about.

    the whole "heading back to the start..feels like its over" is them saying that they tend to drift back to Juturna style songs but they dont necessarily know if they wanna create those kinds of songs n e more

    The "if a foundtain did fall from the sky...1,000 witnesses" part basically says that if they let the style of Juturna go, all their fans would notice and the "croud screams, we dont hear a thing" means that their afraid the fans wont like the new sound

    "are we looking the right way... our minds are open" is them wondering if where their music is going is right for them

    the whole "it was an anchor... pour conrete on the roots" part has to do with the fact that since their old stuff has become to popular and everyone likes it so much, it feels like they have got themselves set into one sound

    just my interpetation

    General Commentin my opinion, going with the rest of the album,
    they are doubting god. The whole "god is dead" element
    almost egging god on saying
    "if a fountain did fall the sky, there'd be 1000 witnesses"
    so come on prove your existence, and show us your a god of miracles.

    "pour concrete on the roots just to make sure you never move"
    keeping you stuck in the original sin, possibly the fall of man, and make sure you never return to god.

    General Commentyou can get it for 99 cents off of some website, check their myspace. I think it's to benefit a cause, so that's why you can only get it from that one website.
