A set up devised,
Pushed me along,
Expect at a notice,
The imagery strong,
Given the time to run,
I will eventually end up in front,
Waving us on...

Yield to the signs,
Something is wrong,
When tenderness dies,
You'll suffer one final prayer,
Clung to the side,
Held on,
I will eventually end up forgone,
Someone who's passed on,
Someone who's passed.

Where to run?
Wither with a frozen smile
That night was true
Where to run?
Lowered into something I am not
Given the chance to break
I would be
Someone who has passed
Someone who has passed
(My time will pass on)
Someone who has passed

    General CommentI recently found the means to hear this song, and I really recomend it to any IP fan. The vocals are incredibly powerful, and I love the downward slope after each verse. It makes me think of a wounded peson in the middle of a snowy field. Just clutching their bleeding arm...yep. It's a really good song.

    General CommentThis is my favorite Idiot Pilot song. The vocals are beautiful, as are the lyrics.

    General CommentThere's a few errors, but the only one I am 100% on is this...

    2nd verse - it's not "You Read the signs", it's "Yeild to the signs".

    There's a few parts in that last verse that are clearly wrong, but I don't know what the correct lyrics are. It's hard to understand.

    General CommentAgreed. I noticed the "yield to the signs" a little after I initially posted, and I have trouble making out the final verse, but if anyone knows it, please post it up, and I'll make the changes.
