You should be counting your blessings
From the sky, your eagle eyes found a great blind faith
I could be kicking the bucket
But, you should know, I never had very good aim

The right of way is a wild goose chase

It makes you wonder
If shooting for stars is like darts in the dark
It makes you wonder
If the beaten path is the promised land

If I worship the ground that he walks on
And it winds up that he has two left feet
Will he be walking on water?
Cause, you should know, we never liked to get our feet wet

The right of way is a wild goose chase

It makes you wonder
If shooting for stars is like darts in the dark
It makes you wonder
If the beaten path is the promised...

I got dizzy
I got lost

It makes you wonder
If shooting for stars is like darts in the dark
It makes you wonder
If the beaten path is the promised land

It makes you wonder
And I'm just a stick in the mud

    General CommentI like what you all have said about this song and definitely can see the connections. To me (and mostly just in the chorus) hear darroh speaking his frustration about the band not fully being recognixed for their talents. Fables was an impressive work of art that didnt get get nearly the amount of recognition that it deserved and i think that-

    It makes you wonder
    If shooting for stars is like darts in the dark
    It makes you wonder
    If the beaten path is the promised land

    -can mean he wonders if trying to make something original and beautiful is pointless because no one cares, or no one will hear it, that 'taking the beaten path' or making music that is the same as everything out there (the popular music of our time that is for the most part incredibly mindless and has very little artistic expression) is the 'promised land', thats where everyone is making money and achieving fame. And the line "im a stick in the mud" could show his stubbornness to go with the flow and 'sell out'
