The future is on fire
Of a dying breed
Don't understate our relevance
We're the eyes in the walls
And we witness the vultures feed, yeah

(Ohhh)
Stay wide awake
Stay wide awake, yeah
(Ohhh)
Make haste, 'cause predators precede
(Ohhh)
Stay wide awake
Stay wide awake, yeah
(Ohhh)
While all the vultures feed

Like angles in a sphere,
Of our own design
No more perpetual innocence.
With words we make shapes
And our angles can align, yeah

And our appetite's careless and menacing
It humbles me
We breath softly on with it's predator
Such is a sight to see

(Ohhh)
Stay wide awake
Stay wide awake, yeah
(Ohhh)
Make haste, 'cause predators precede
(Ohhh)
Stay wide awake
Stay wide awake, yeah
(Ohhh)
While all the vultures feed
While all the vultures feed
While all the vultures feed
While all the vultures feed

    General CommentAlso, I think that instead of "perpetual innocence" it's "perpetual reticence." Awesome song, though.

    General CommentI really love this song and the sound. I think this song is about society is forcing people to conform and people are quickly falling prey hince "The future is on fire we're of a dying breed". So Brandon is pretty much warning us to watch out for conformity.

    My OpinionGreat song. But, I think that "We breath softly on with it's predator" is actually "When prey slyly outwits it's predator."

    General CommentThis song reminds me so much of Pink Floyd's "Animals." Sheep to be specific (and a little bit of Dogs).
