so i ask myself are we too far gone because ever since we put our hands on the mill we've been cutting strong blind to life and the consequences of taking life we're not jet set ready we're sinking with the ship that we built too quickly but we'll shift and reshift the blame to keep it off our conscience that we helped to build it so long to the simple song the balanced one that's long gone forgotten by more than some minds burned while young pioneers gone wrong who won't cease to live without oppressing life...and so long to the ways that we knew fit with the world that we lived in gracious world a forgiving world and show our thanks with industry open eyes can see while open mouths could speak to change or rearrange what should not be taken

    General Commentthis song is about the shift in human society from being nomadic hunter-gatherers to being agriculturalists, capitalists, and industrialists. it's about how we fucked up the earth.

    General CommentThere is also a huge AVAIL influence in this song.. Not only does Tim Barry, the singer of AVAIL appear later in the album (Hit and Miss) - there are many references to AVAIL in the lyrics.

    From the opening music, sounds like AVAIL.. The lyrics are AVAIL influenced.. shift and reshift the blame - from avail lyric.. Simple song.. avail song.. young pioneers.. a band that Tim Barry was a part of with AVAIL, and there are still others in there.

    The entire album seems very heavily influenced by Dixie, and maybe even 4am Friday
