Some would say tomorrow is just one step closer to death
I'd say tomorrow is just one step closer to life
And understanding and to know it's gonna be alright

So in conclusion have I made my decisions clear?
With every passing moment of my life this year
Well not exactly so that's what I am doing here

No one's on display
And no one's gonna be passed around today
I won't let it happen, if I can help it
Take your inconsistence away

Would it be right to say that no one ever truly listens?
Or takes the time to understand what something means
Without opinion, bias, without a one-track mind

What can be done to change a habit born in our minds?
First step to Kiros is to take the shells out of our eyes
And then to wonder, enjoy life, maybe even relax, even relax

    General CommentThis song talks about how most people think that they are getting closer to death, but since he is a christian he is getting closer to life in heaven with God. "Would it be right to say that no one ever truly listens?
    Or takes the time to understand what something means "he is saying that most people just listen to this song and don't think to understand the meaning behind it.

    General CommentThis song is awesome! It's very true. I love mxpx and I love how they sing Christian music, but a lot of it is for kids, which is great too.

    General CommentOK this song was written, when they were rewriting their old song Association (Runaway Demo). Most of the songs on HT are old Xero songs remade, so that they fit Chester, instead of Mark Wakefield. But during the righting, they had to have Mark help them, cause he sitll did right most of the original song. So he kept telling Chester that he was ruining the song or something along those lines, and chester flipped out on him and started screaming shit like shut the fuck up at him (the shut up part). So Chester was all pissed off and wrote a song about it.

    "I cannot take this anymore
    I'm saying everything I've said before"
    is about Mark only half listening to his ideas.
    "All these thoughts they make no sense
    I found bliss in ignorance"
    is about trying to understand what Mark wrote "Association about.

    So this song is basically Chester being pissed off about not understanding the song "Runaway". The reason he doesn't like it is because hes so pissed with himself for flipping out on one of Mike Shinoda's best friends for such a stupid reason.

    Mark Wakefield was LP's original singer when they were Xero (he brad and rob were all jewish), he left the band, because they sent out tons of demos and eps to record labels, but they got ignored, and he is now quite wealthy anyways cause he's now Taproot's manager, (that's how they got stephen richards booked for P5HNG.ME.4*WY
