Come on now
Pull the flesh over those bones and rise
'Cause you're not supposed to lie here
In the middle of the road, in the middle of the night
Stand up and breathe in again
And run along now to the other side
'Cause your friends are standing by
And tell them I'm sorry that I ever learned to drive

    General CommentI wish I hadn't read that post about the deer. No offense intended to mimicry at all, but this song always made me think of two different things. One was my best friend's little brother being hit and killed by a car a few years ago. The other was about how much I hurt a girl a few years ago.

    General Commenti heard it was about a kid getting hit by a car, not a deer, but i could be wrong.

    General CommentFACT:
    This song is about a deer. When the Gloria homepage was up, Chris had kind of an online diary. Nothing special, only a few entries. One was about a dream he had, that included a deer.Hence Ascension Dream. And an even stronger proof: I got a TGR t-shirt, that hes these lines printed on, and next to the lyrics stands a deer. So, yeah, this song is about hitting a deer.

    General CommentThis song being about a deer or not, to me it's Chris singing to himself.

    He's trying to pick himself up from whatever caused him to fall.

    That's my perception of it.
