In the garden, in the park, on a bench, I sit.
A newspaper floats on the breeze of this late summer.
It is coming my way,
I patiently wait.

I see the sign, it's on the road
and I think it's crazy

In the garden, of the park, on a bench, I watch.
The sandy feet of the children.
Pearls of sweat run across their beautiful faces.

You see the sign, it's on the road
but I think you're crazy

You are, you are the sign
of my unrelief

As I easily get inner contact with myself,
I notice distress grabbing for my throat.
It is time to reach out.
To find something that isn't there,

You see the signs, they're on the road
but I think it's crazy

You are, you are the sign
of my unrelief

    General CommentI think it's about knowing everything in the world, even the world, and the meaning of life, and how you are waiting for it, because if you tried to look, you wouldn't be able to find it, because it's so elusive. Everybody else is either beautifully ignorant (children playing in the park) or the adults (too focused on what the strict rules say [the sign on the road]). This person is part of neither group and can't relate to others and gets frustrated at their ignorance, specifically the ignorant adults. The person then realizes that the reason for their distress is that the meaning of life, which could obviously not be there, needs to be searched for, even though it might not be there. You can't just sit and wait for it. So there's your typical extremely metaphorical and deep The Gathering song for you.
