Ours is not to question the reasons why
Crippled indecision repeats the path I once denied
Insignificant am I

The color of sundown, of crimson sky
The beauty that breaks down
And gives the day unto the night

And then one day you'll realize
Just a speck in a spectrum
Insignificant am I
And then one day, you'll realize
The beauty that breaks down
Never learns the reason why

Scan my horizon as blue turns to black
The sky is gone again
And all beneath are born to die
Insignificant am I

And then one day you'll realize
Just a speck in a spectrum
Insignificant am I
And then one day, you'll realize
The beauty that breaks down
Never learns the reason why

    General CommentI agree with what everyone else said about being insignificant in the world, but I don't think that's a negative thing. Christians believe humans are a "higher being" than anything else in the world. I think it is a wonderful thing to realize how awesome everything else in the world is. Like standing at the base of a mountain and reveling in it's beauty, but feeling like a tiny speck at the same time.

    General CommentThis song describes the single "working joe's" meaning to the worlds history. Absolutley nothing.
    We truly are Insignificant. And this song captures the feeling you get when you realize it perfectly.

    General CommentYup, We are all useless. This song kinda sparked an epiphany for me. "Holy colon. What do I mean to the rest of the world? Nothing..... just a speck in the spectrum, Insignificant, am I."

    General CommentJust a small note, the lyrics to this song are incomplete. There's another verse after the 2nd chorus, and solo/lead. It reads as such:

    The brother of sundown
    has bleached away my past
    to look into the sky,
    if only for one last time.

    Also, it's funny but when I created this account to comment on this particular song, my captcha was, exactly, "act of god". Haha. Anyway...
