A vision of you there, standing tall
By the gate

Everything is new, stare into
What is not yet

As your bones grow and you feel the pain
In exchange

Experiences hang, run round your mind
And collide

Hang your toes over the edge
'Cause you can

You can switch your place, hide inside
If you try

You'll open up your eyes and realize
How you fit in the wild

A lion is a lion, no apologies
And a leash is a leech

In a corral, you're safe and warm
Pass it on to every sheep

Time and time again you stick your self
To accept someone else

Give up the wish let go of the dream
Barricade, fantasy

Burn the dogma, let the fire
Overtake the desire to define

(I will find a way to keep this moment)
What's raging
(For myself
I will find a way...)
Out of control
Like a wheel

(I will find a way...)
Like a storm
(To keep this moment for myself)
Like a virus
(I will find a way...)
Like an ocean
Like a silence

(I will find a way)
An emotion
(To keep this moment for myself)
Like a darkness
(I will find a way... (I will find a way...))
Like a chance

An idea
(I will find a way...)
Like a verb
Like an outrage
(To keep this moment for myself)
Like a sunrise
Like a monster
(I will find a way...)
Like a monster
Like a mantra
Like a mantra

(Never be the same...)
(Never be the same...)
(Never be the same...)
(Never be..)

And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again
And all of this will never be the same again

    General CommentI think this song is about finding your place in the world, almost as though it's a battle of 2 perspectives. Dave is singing about realizing what's around you, not to idealize and fantasize about things that won't happen and to accept what you really are, Trent comes in later bringing forth another perspective, to stay living in a dream. For whatever reason, perhaps not wanting to grow up or move on in life, they refuse to see past the moment at hand or their state of mind. To sum up, Dave is telling the person to move on with whatever has happened and that fre, Trent is singing about reflection.

    "Give up the wish let go of the dream
    Barricade, fantasy"
    Staying in the moment forever prevents you moving forward.

    "You'll open up your eyes and realize
    How you fit in the wild" Telling him to learn his place.


    However Dave's perspective is flawed, lines like "Burn the dogma, let the fire
    Overtake the desire to define" and "A lion is a lion, no apologies
    And a leash is a leech" say that he shouldn't follow his dreams or try to stand out.

    Eventually the two characters argue. It culminates in a battle of perspectives, with Trent's character explaining how much it means to him as well as how he intends to keep it, with Dave's telling him how it will eventually over take him and become bad for him. He compares the desire to stick in the moment and fantasize as being similar to a monster:

    "An idea
    (I will find a way...)
    Like a verb
    Like an outrage
    (To keep this moment for myself)
    Like a sunrise
    Like a monster
    (I will find a way...)
    Like a monster
    Like a mantra
    Like a mantra"
