"So Strange I Remember You" as written by Edward Carrington Breckenridge, James Riley Breckenridge, Dustin Michael Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi....
So Strange I Remember You in protest of a prayer,
And falling back from seas we fear to sail
I swear I saw the shooter, gold deep and double dare,
Postmortem warnings seem inclined to fail,

Feigning an apology.
Those words they never left your lips,
Those 5 years in Bermuda slide by like the lights of passing ships,
So Strange that I Remember You,
Kneeling deep in Nietzsche's lies
My throat was an open grave I drank your stained glass eyes

And they taste like dead cathedrals
That are crumbling beneath a weight ten thousand jaded tourists
Who've traded in their hearts and hands for
Disposable cameras, set to document to decay
Set to capture just enough of life to catalog the things we throw away

(breathing the fumes of our machines)
We've lost our way-Dustin sings
(breathing through television dreams)

If we could only see us now
If we could only see us now

The words of the dead ring in our ears
But its only a lie
The voice in your head brings you to tears
But you don't know why
The words of the dead ring in our ears
But its only a lie
The voice in your head brings you to tears
But its only a lie,
Yes its only a lie, isn't it?

    General CommentThis song seems like it's talking about people and how they only care about the now.. I think it is completly true we are breathing in the fumes of our own machines pollution is ridiculous and the general population doesn't care abou it they just want to see what preety and they don't even realize they are destroying it and themselves at the same time. absolutly obsurd

    General Commentthis song is about how we've thrown away our faith and lost in this modern world where we find no meaning and simply try to explain what we know (reference to Nietzche) and how every once in a while we get a glimpse that there is something more to life and we convince ourselves its only a lie

    General Commentwhen something is lost
    another thing is gained
    sometimes there is something to be gained in losing
    something to be lost in gaining
    intelligence is deadly when tainted by ignorance
    mix truth with lies and you can make people believe anything

    General Commentok, this hasn't really got anything to do with the song itself; but has anyone got any idea how the dutch words "uitrit dag en nacht vrijlaten" ended up in the artwork between these lyrics in the lyricsheet???
    There are also some dutch words between the lyrics of "see you in the shallows": "...e is een kaketoe".

    I'm from belgium, so was kinda surprised when i saw those words in my language, but it made me wonder how they got there. I already tried to email thrice, but i didn't get an answer yet :(
    Thought maybe one of you guys could tell me...
