call out what we’ve become
the news has turned to numb
locked in nearsight
on the latest device
let the yet-to-be pick up the tab
say we can’t escape
though there’s plenty of space
barring holding on to what we used to have

in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it on by, let me go
and get it in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it all die, let me go

we lay it out on the map
debate it all in caps
lock our eyes on
distant horizons
where we will shift to some informed accord
in another town
settle up, settle down
we insist on the option or we’re out the door

so get it in your head…

gone, it’s gone
gave in again, now let me go
gone, it’s gone
gave in again, now let me go

or maybe this is a test
maybe this is a course correction
oh I said it, no no don’t let it get out of control

in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it on by, let me go
and get it in your head, where we’re headed
you gotta let it all die, let me go

this hope, it begins to know
we could return again, don’t let me go
I get it in my heart, I know we could restart
we can begin again, don’t let me go

gone, it’s gone
return again, don’t let me go
gone, it’s gone
begin again, don’t let me go

    Song MeaningAt the concerts on 10/2/13 and 10/3/13, Vienna stated that she had the rhythm and melody for this song long before she wrote the lyrics and that for the longest time it was just sung with "nonsense words and syllables." She said that even now, the words don't really matter.
