You wrote down all the meanings on a plane fold
The message was hidden in its grey storm
The blue sky guides us there that you don't trust
So what's it to ya? - We don't give a fuck.

Time creeps up from underground
The earth plates are shifting around
This is the age that ran right away
Together they ally to lead the race

Fond and a little lone in the sun
Where we go is what we've become
The answers are laid down on a page
My eyes stay shut, my eyes stay shut to walk down the race

Fond and a little lone in the sun
Where we go is what we've become
The answers are laid down on a page
My eyes stay shut, my eyes stay shut to walk down the race

    General CommentI think Young Empires try to capture the feeling of lying outside in the sun, reflecting upon life - which suits the dreamy notion of the song pretty well, in my opinion.

    The first verse seems to refer to some vague shaper/creator, a god-figure who knows all the answers but chose to keep them out of men's reach but through enjoying life we find the answers ourself.

    The second verse seems to allude to the rapid passing of time by human standards compared to the infinity that shapes nature around us.

    I think the third verse refers to the author themself, lying in the sun, thinking that enjoying life outside is the answer ('where we go is what we've become') and that he doesn't see any need for pondering about it anymore ('the answers are laid down on a page' / 'my eyes stay shut to walk down the race').
