"Danger: Wildman" as written by and Andrew Trick Larry Williams....
I know a ghost,
And when doubted his truth reveals incredible vengeance
Vanity is a sepulcher
Do as you please, shame, will follow
Languages rot and insects lose interest

Mountains of plastic
Melting Away.
As long as these struggles are aimless
We will all be standing still.

When worded correctly, truth is never a cliche
This is because so many are attached to their deaf ears
Collect the leaves
Count them
Name them

Study each and every single one of them
As long as these struggles are aimless
We will all be standing still
When worded correctly, truth is never a cliche

This is because so many are attached to their deaf ears
All mistakes can be marked by borders
All of love can be traced to a maker
It seems as if what is most important, isn't noticed when forgotten.

Do as you please, shame will follow
The sun and the moon
You'll always take them for granted
What's delicate is lost.

As the selfish forgot what is the sacred.
The humble forget themselves
When worded correctly, truth is never a cliche
This is because so many are attached to their deaf ears.

    General Commenti personally think this song is kind of about humanity's selfishness as a whole.

    "vanity is a sepulchre"
    a sepulchre is a grave (i looked it up haha) so it's kind of self-explainatory.

    "do as you please shame will follow"
    basically saying continue partying and sinning, but the shame will always be there.

    "languages rot and insects lose interest / mountains of plastic melting away"
    kind of explaining how everything will end eventually, there'll come a day when we no longer have language, when even insects are gone, and all man-made things (plastics) will eventually be destroyed.

    "as long as these struggles are aimless we will all be standing still"
    as long as humanity doesn't have a clear goal in mind, all the science and organizations, etc etc, won't move us forward because we don't know where we're going.

    "when worded correctly truth is never a cliche / this is because so many are attached to their deaf ears"
    this is definitely my favourite line :) i think it's pretty obvious.

    "all mistakes can be marked by borders / all of love can be traced to a maker"
    i think this means all our mistakes have an ending, they can't go on forever, and that God is the source of all love.

    "the sun and the moon / you'll always take them for granted"
    kind of, again, showing how selfish we've become, that we can't even appreciate our sources of light.

    "what's delicate is lost"
    this could be saying that in today's generation of people who didn't learn manners, it's kind of less important to be diplomatic.

    "as the stupid forget what is sacred / the humble forget themselves"
    as the stupid people have forgotten the things we should hold higher than everything else (family, love, spirituality, etc) the humble forget themselves in the love of God and in the grandness of nature.

    this is just my own interpretation, however, i absolutely love this song no matter what it means! :)

    General CommentI KNOW A GHOST,
    And when doubted his truth reveals incredible vengeance.
    Vanity is a sepulcher.
    Do as you please, shame will follow.
    Languages rot and insects lose interest;
    MOUNTAINS OF PLASTIC: MELTING AWAY.
    As long as these struggles are aimless,
    we will all be standing still.
    When worded correctly, truth is never a cliche;
    This is because so many are attached to their deaf ears.
    All mistakes can be marked by borders.
    All of love can be traced to a marker.
    IT SEEMS AS IF WHAT IS MOST IMPORTANT,
    ISN'T NOTICED WHEN FORGOTTEN.
    Do as you please, shame will follow.
    The sun and the moon:
    you'll always take them for granted.
    What's delicate is lost.
    As the selfish forgot what is sacred,
    The humble forget themselves.
    When worded correctly, truth is never a cliche;

    Those the correct lyrics, I recieved my CD today.

    General Commentmy line for line interpretation haha i enjoy doing it:

    I know a ghost,
    And when doubted his truth reveals incredible vengeance.

    saying that he knows a something or someone, maybe a prophet like phenomena that has warnings or prophecies that will bring bad consequences if not followed or listened to

    Vanity is a sepulcher,

    a sepulcher is a tomb saying that pride will be your demise

    Do as you please and shame will follow

    saying that you can do whatever you want but there will be consequences

    Languages rot and insects lose interest;
    Mountains of plastic; melting away

    saying how cultures are dying and conformity is beginning to take over
    notice how English is becoming one of the most common languages and is shadowing over what some consider less relevant languages this is an example not necessarily the one used in this song
    mountains of plastic refers to such fragile foundations and that they can be destroyed easily

    As long as these struggles are aimless,
    We will all be standing still, standing still.

    if our efforts have no meaning or purpose we wont move forward or achieve anything. like running in place

    When worded correctly, truth is never a cliche;
    This is because so many are attached to their deaf ears.

    referring to ignorant people those who arent open-minded
    and no matter how many times we say something important (truth) it will never get old depending on how we depict it

    Collect the leaves, count them, name them.
    Study each and every single one of them.

    maybe saying how we should appreciatted everything and be less ignorant

    chorus


    All mistakes can be marked by borders.
    All of love can be traced to a maker.
    It's seems as if what is most important,
    Isn't noticed when forgotten

    saying that all mistakes can be distinguished by something
    and that emotions show proof or lead us to a maker: god
    next line self-explanatory

    "The sun and the moon:
    you'll always take them for granted.
    What's delicate is lost, is lost.
    As the selfish forgot what is sacred,
    The humble forget themselves."

    we dont appreciate the things most important and we dont realize that we might not have them the next day.
    even the best of people can falter

    General CommentI've gotten about the same amount of lyrics as you, but I have a few corrections.
    It sounds like "Vanity is a sepulchre" rather than "Fear not, she is a simple girl"
    And that would make the next two lines "...shame will follow".

    You also need to post the chorus even if everyone knows it:

    As long as these struggles are endless
    When will I be standing still (standing still)

    And then there's the part where Jeremy is singing later in the song:

    All mistakes can be marked by borders
    All of love can be traced to _____
    It seems as if what is most important
    Is unnoticed when forgotten

    That's my input. Anyways incredible song.

    General Commentfor me personally, the best line in this song is 'as long as these struggles are aimless,
    we will all be standing still.' it captures the intent of the song perfectly.

    by far the best song on the album, musically at least.

    Song MeaningI think this means that people are stubborn and usually won't listen to anyone else. The whole "deaf ears" thing.
