lost gray pictures of my past stain greener pastures of my future
rememberance and recognition forces me to reconsider
I am seeking to regress and recreating what I've found
a new beginning torn away
I'm spiraling spiraling down
empty hands on the ends of these reaching arms need the touch of something real
year by year we seperate further
we are forgetting how to feel
for at the end of this long rope I hang in wait of fading echos
uncertainty haunts my everything
I look into tomorrow and I see nothing...
so tell me how it feels to be me
I've lost so much I cannot recall my identity
I would die for yesterday not caring where I need to go
reshape relationships back into what I used to know
tomorrow is so far and I no longer want to find a replacement for all these pictures that are lost in my mind

    General CommentThe best Saetia song in my opinion.

    It seems like most of Saetia's songs are about relationships, but written in such a pretty feltful way. Haha, I don't think feltful is a word. Mmm...

    General Commenti agree that this song is about the past, but i interpret it as also being about the future....he look sback and sees nothing...looks forward and sees the same. he thinks life is empty..boring even.

    General Commenti agree that this song is about remembering the past but i also interpret it as looking forward and not seeing what you want to see...looking back and knowing you could have more...wanting to change everything.

    General Commentin short, it's about growing up, he fears the future. awesome song. his scream is best used here than in any other saetia song, it's hard to comprehend how someone can use their voice to make those sounds, it's just amazing.

    General CommentRememberance has led the speaker to his plight. In the midst of his dwelling, he's found himself losing control, losing grips with himself, becoming alienated by his own happiness of past times. Doubt of his future resides, somuchso that he'd give anything to return to times which he cherished most.
