"Ow My Feelings" as written by and Misha Mansoor Spencer Sotelo....
Lost the way
Feel the world below me
Painlessly ascend
Torn away dissolving the life I know
Grasp the light
Feel the glow enfolding
Exaltation
Isolate the answers are truths from lies

Loss of faith
The path unravels before me
Unholy day
I'm letting go

Through time these cries distort the view
Hopeless misdirection
We all defy the chance to know
This world is not the one I knew
Holding tight to our beliefs
Awake to what we have become.

Void the past, create the new
Separate the few because I hold ability to lead
Astray
Now living through every day on the path between
The frozen lines

Now no one ever will know about this experience
Will someone for once step back
And gaze upon the world through my eyes

Drawn behind the point of view
Seal us from the truth
On our own the fear of life decays

Time alone reveals our fatal aspect of arrogance
In life we're not the only ones
Free from the walls I'm alive

Lost the way
The path unravels before me
Unholy day I'm letting go

    General CommentSomehow I feel like this is the prequel (maybe the sequel) to "Jetpacks was yes!". In case you didn't know, JWY was about an immortal who outlives his wife, an entire city and eventually the world (and still lives). This sounds like the same idea except more about the character's growing existentialist beliefs.

    Time alone reveals our fatal aspect of arrogance
    In life we're not the only ones free from the walls, I'm alive

    Sounds like he's talking about being alive and alone long enough to see how the world became so destroyed.

    Void the past, create the new
    Separate the few because I hold ability to lead astray
    Now living through every day on the path between the frozen lines

    Now no one ever will know about this experience
    Will someone for one step back and gaze upon this world with my eyes

    This is what really convinces me he's living every day and no one will ever know about him and no one can see the world from his perspective.

    It could be one of those dumb emo songs about losing faith, but I see periphery as a band that goes a little outside of the box for that type of material.
