We've been run in circles
Like rats in a maze
Afraid of our own shadows
Much too blind to change

Every step we take goes backwards
Don't know what we're headed for
I've been hung out to dry
Strung out on denial

Everlasting wilderness
A night without ending
Buildings scrape the quiet sky
As I pretend to understand
The way you're all just staring
Hung up in heaven
Here on vacation
Trying to find some piece of mind, but...

I've been hung out to dry
Strung out on denial
And it's all just, it's all just a waste of time

Ooooh
Ooooh

Every step we take goes backwards
We don't know what we're heading towards
So wake me up when it's all over

    General Commentan everlasting wildnerness
    a night without an end
    buildings scrape a quiet sky
    as i pretend to understand
    that we're all just skeletons
    hung up in heaven
    here on vacation
    trying to find some peace of mind

    General CommentI have to say As Tall as Lions has matured nicely. I mean i like their self titled album (Laficado and Blood and Aphorisms not so much) but it seems this album was put together by an artist not some lovesick crybaby. Seriously have you noticed pretty much every song on their last album is about a girl? This song is a great example of their brilliance. Every step human kind takes sets us back. Examples. Smart phones. Mass production. Religion. we make ourselves dependent on these things. So we don't know how to function without them. Is this the right direction? Yay idiocy! here we come.
