Where in the world’s the forgotten?
They’re lost inside your memory
You’re dragging on, your heart’s been broken
As we all go down in history

Where in the world did the time go?
It’s where your spirit seems to roam
Like losing faith to our abandon
Or an empty hallway from a broken home
Well don’t look away from the arms of a bad dream
Well, don’t look away, sometimes you’re better lost than to be seen

I don’t feel strange, it’s more like haunted
Another moment trapped in time
I can’t quite put my finger on it
But it’s like a child that was left behind
So where in the world’s the forgotten?
Like soldiers from a long lost war
We share the scars from our abandon
And what we remember becomes folklore

Well, don’t look away from the arms of a bad dream
Well, don’t look away, sometimes you’re better lost than to be seen
Well, don’t look away from the arms of a moment
Don’t look away from the arms of tomorrow
Well, don’t look away from the arms of a moment
Don’t look away from the arms of love

    General Comment:My thoughts is this song is about forgetting about what's next, and the forgotten is a synonom of people who we've left behind.

    My Interpretation:It's about a couple of things. First it's about letting go of the past that only weighing you down. The other thing is that it´s okay to let go of some things.. But always live in the moment. And see all the unjustice in the world. Children starving, wars, poverty etc

    So for me it´s more of a: "Let the past go to see the present more clearly" thing.. But of course this is only my interpretation! =)

    Song Meaning:I think that this song has many meanings:
    One is that you as a person is being forgotten or fears he'll be forgotten when hes gone. The Line "Well, don't look away, sometimes you're better lost than to be seen" may indicate that you may be forgotten but instead caring about that, you should move on in life and give them something which they'll never forget.
    Second is that this is for a person whom you loved and who no longer is with you, and now its better for you to move on and live the moments, what that person wanted you to do.
    These May contradict but they are different.

    This song seems special to me as Its the most emotional and deep song I've ever heard.
