Where do I put the shame?
It feels like a broken toy
I can't play with anymore.
Where do I put the hate
to a pixilated screen?
I can't watch anymore.
All I know is that
I'm here drifting
somewhere in the vast
somewhere in the eternity,
and I never want to leave.
Where do I put the books?
There's so many I could read,
but they are all filled with lies.
Where do I put the lies?
There's so many I could say,
but it seems they're in the books.
I have faith that you're out there, living high
up in the vast,
somewhere in eternity,
and you're never going to leave.
Have I been telling
lies to myself?
Hold me now. You know,
I am so afraid to be at all.
Have I been telling lies to myself?
Hold me now. You know,
I am so afraid to love at all
Where do I put the love?
Where do I put the love?

    General CommentI think it's about finding a place for being true to yourself and having some emotional purity in a fucked up media driven world.

    General CommentHmm...the song that got me hooked on VAST. I think it means that Jon's lost someone very close and he feels alone and afraid and lost..."somewhere in the Vast." lol. But anyway, this is the BEST song from VAST; either buy the CD or download it NOW! ;-)

    General Commentlol this one is als the one that hooked me!
    but i think its a rivalrry song. hes been lied to about everything. and he blames one man. course i have a whole weird story about it in which the hero was trained from his birth to be the ultimate warrior. his twin brother, also under this training discovers the truth of theyre past, a past of lies and hatred. he lashes out and destroys everything he knows... except the brother, who is now alone with nothin. no past possibly no future. and only thinks about revenge on his brother, who stole it all, and the ones who lied to him and ruined his life. now he looks for his rival, and hopes to confront him. in this song, he confronts his now insane rival in the final duel.

    General CommentThe lyrics posted on this page are partically incorrect, while listening to the song i found a few lines that were sort of in the background that were missing from this version.
    So heres my version:....
    Where do I put the shame?
    It feels like a broken toy
    I can't play with anymore.
    Where do I put the hate
    to a pixilated screen?
    I can't watch anymore.
    All I know is that
    I'm here drifting
    somewhere in the vast
    somewhere in the eternity,
    and I never want to leave.
    Where do I put the books?
    There's so many I could read,
    but they are all filled with lies.
    Where do I put the lies?
    There's so many I could say,
    but it seems they're in the books.
    I have faith that you're out there, living high
    up in the vast,
    somewhere in eternity,
    and you're never going to leave.
    Have I been telling
    lies to myself?
    Hold me now. You know,
    I am so afraid to be at all.
    Have I been telling lies to myself?
    Hold me now. You know,
    I am so afraid to love at all
    *I looked up and i saw the moon, *
    *Seemed the same but it featured you...*
    *I looked up and i saw my place (or pleas)*
    *I dont care that i felt no hate!!!*
    Where do I put the love?
    Where do I put the love?

    I just had to put this up, those lyrics were frustrating me.
    But yeah cool song, also got me hooked.

    General CommentIn response to Gnards, to my ear, those extra lyrics sound more like:

    I looked up and I saw the moon
    Is it the same one that betrayed you?
    I looked up and I saw my place
    I looked in and I felt no hate

    But that's just me

    General CommentLOVE this part:

    "I looked up and I saw the moon
    Is it the same one that betrayed you?
    I looked up and I saw my place
    I looked in and I felt no hate"

    Just a great song, overall.
