Theyre all flashing past
So many others moving so fast
I feel my heart smoke
As we go under it and bow down
Nothing left on this island
Upon steel on steel
Through these cuts in me
Ive no question who was here first
Many dreams many lifetimes
Any of which could be me
Cept that im the one unable to move upon this machine
Upon this machine

Pardon caravan emotion
Loaded crowds just like me
I fell between the moments
I fell between the endings
Cuz when it runs around the windows
Nothing here is still
All the paths have collided
Through all these villages and hills
So many dreams so many lifetimes
Any of which could be me
Cept that im the one unable to move upon this machine


Theres no one else, no one else, no one else, no one else.
Theres no one else, no one else, no one else, no one else.

Theres no one else, no one else, no one else, no one can help me now
Help me im stuck in this moving thing
Nothing is what it seems
No getting off this machine


95% of this is accurate. There are a few lines i was unsure of but did my best with. The song is about feeling lost amongst the crowd doing the same old repetitive motion and just being a gear in a machine lacking any creativity.

    Lyric CorrectionWhat I heard:

    "I feel my heart slow, as we wander I don't bow down
    Nothing left undecided, upon steel on steel
    Through these cuts in the Earth
    No question who was here first"
    ...
    (unsure - "in care of"?) "an emotion
    Alone in crowds just like me
    I fell between the moments,
    I fell between the beats
    As rain runs around the windows,
    Nothing here is still
    All the patterns colliding,
    Through these villages and hills"
    ...
    "No one can help me now
    Help me now
    Stuck in this moving train"

    Lyric CorrectionIt's very hard to find the lyrics on the net.
    Please publish the correct ones so others can find it.

    my suggestion... (and I'm still not sure of...)

    Trough flashing past
    So many others moving so fast
    I feel my heart slow
    As we wonder I go bow down (?)
    Nothing left undecided
    Upon steel on steel
    Through these cuts in me
    I’ve no question who was here first
    Many dreams many lifetimes
    Any of which could be me
    Saying that I’m the one who unable
    To move upon this machine
    Upon this machine

    Pardon caravan emotion
    Alone in crowds just like me
    I fell between the moments
    I fell between the…?
    Cause when I run around the windows
    Nothing here is still
    All the patterns colliding
    Through these villages and hills
    So many dreams so many lifetimes
    Any of which could be me
    Saying that I’m the one who unable
    To move upon this machine

    There’s no one else, no one else, no one else, no one else.
    There’s no one else, no one else, no one else, no one else.

    There’s no one else, no one else, no one else, no one
    Can help me now, help me
    I’m stuck in this moving train
    Nothing is what it seems
    No getting off this machine

    My InterpretationMy interpretation would be as follows...

    'they're all flashing past
    so many others moving so fast

    I feel my heart slown
    as we go under i don't bow down

    nothing left undecided
    upon steel on steel

    through these cuts in me
    Ive no question who was here first

    many dreams many life times
    any of witch could be me

    Accept that I'm the one unable
    to move upon this machine

    upon this machine

    pardon caravan emotion
    loaning crowds just like me


    i fell between the moments
    i fell between the deeds

    cuz when i render all the windows

    nothing here is still
    all the birds seem colliding
    through these villages and hills

    so many dreams so many life times, any of witch could be me,

    accept that I'm the one unable

    to move upon this machine…

    theres no one else, no one else,no one else, no one else...
    theres no one else, no one else,no one else, no one else...

    theres no one else, no one else,no one else, no one else

    can help me now
    help me now
    stuck in this moving dream
    nothing is what it seems
    no getting of this machine...'

    General CommentEdit: 'all the birds seem colliding' is suppose to be 'all the persons colliding'

    'they're all flashing past
    so many others moving so fast

    I feel my heart slown

    nothing left undecided
    upon steel on steel

    i fell between the deeds

    nothing here is still
