The high road is always a balance beam chipping away our ankles, and I think it's high time we embraced the visual
on my way home I saw a keyhole in the sky and I tossed around my reasons for the cost

divide and dissolve the seams that weave deep within my head
we're losing light, and in this despair I'm finally aware that I am not one to learn so fast

straining across this great expanse where the weight of the world rests, and the air is thick with crushing emptiness
if only I could lift these feet up from the ground I'd circle 'round the world I know, I know...

...we, like marionettes off our strings fling limbs at our passions and hope to connect with impossible dreams
it's holding on when nothing feels right, it's the final, identical, severed umbilical breath from a tightening chest as we're holding on

    General CommentThis is brilliant writing. I don't have time to delve too deep into it. I feel that it is about recognizing the difficulty, the possible impossibility of our dreams coming true and yet holding out. Who knows why but we feel that we can eventually get what we want. This song really captures the pain that one goes through to achieve their goals.

    My InterpretationThis is about realizing the importance of knowing yourself. If you don't decide to awaken.. you'll live your life like a victim, suffering til the end of your days.
