Solitary motion, in the wake of an avalanche
Deer in the headlights, there goes a weaker one
He's listenin' in the fast gaze, I don't care now to see the way
Do you hear the silence? I was far too late

Oh living for the city, and it's always troubling
to keep it in the hot lane, I don't care about no scenery
and you run from it then, now you can't escape, cause it's all you see
But we're all just an end to a simple thing, and it's all you see, and it's all you see

We're just tamer animals
We're just tamer animals

Solitary motion, in the wake of an avalanche
We took a hit then, trying to see if you hold it in
and you run from it then, now you can't escape, cause it's all you see
But we're all just an end to a simple thing, and it's all you see, and it's all you see

We're just tamer animals
We're just tamer animals
We're just tamer animals

    General CommentLove the song, love the video. I see it as meaning that we're just "tamer animals." We follow these routines thare aren't much different than does a Pride of lions in the safari. Oh a deer gets killed in the headlights? Well, we do too. That was one connection I made between the video and the lyrics. Great great song.

    General CommentI had no idea who Other Lives was, and if I had had to guess, I would've thought they were a screamo band. This is not the case however, and they are one of the best bands I've ever heard, and this is my favorite song of theirs, period.
