Could I be wrong?
Or is this the old song?
Ushering a new dawn...

It's been so long,
but I can see through this.
Signs are screaming "don't go,
think of what you don't know."

Quick escapes and quick survivals,
run away from real revival.

Breathing in everything they tell you.
It floods your lungs
and kills your whole desire.
But I won't go.

You've been the pawn,
you were the "what's left",
holding on to "what's next".

They lead you on.
It's suddenly soothing,
and you can feel a new grasp
close around the old hands.

Quick escapes and quick survivals,
run away from real revival.

Breathing in everything they tell you.
It floods your lungs
and kills your whole desire.
But I won't go.

Could I be wrong?
Or is this the old song?
Ushering a new dawn...

It's been so long,
but I can see through this.
Signs are screaming "don't go,
think of what you don't know."

Breathing in everything they tell you.
It floods your lungs
and kills your whole desire.
But I won't go.

    General Commentso I could be going out on a limb here but again, i think this song is about leaving STG and the aftermath of her being on her own without a band. Maybe since she was without them, many people didn't think she could do it. like in the verse: You've been the pawn, you were the "what's left", holding on to "what's next". Everyone is waiting to see what she will do now that she's on her own and if she'll be any good without STG. Anyway, i think this song is just about people putting her down.
