In a wake of some change
Stones in the pipeline
Like some new mountain range
We leave the lowlands behind

They take your photograph
You come into existence
You realize it's your path
In this very instant

Some heroes are we
To pass outside these gates
With a will to adjust
Adjust to what it takes

You add another year to this
And it all has gone to waste
Other plans have been made
To pursue your own separate fates

The kids are on High Street
The kids will not sleep tonight
The kids got in a knife fight
We trained them well
They're gonna be alright

I'll be joining with them soon
I can't even wait to get away from you
'Cause it's only in hindsight
That we will know what was right to do
I always thought we had it made
Ambition spurred the plans we laid

    General CommentBeautiful song, full of hope but melancholia as well. I think it's about growing up, getting away from your parents and having a life of your own... plans are made, dreams are being shattered, not all will be great in life but you have to try to make the best of it. "Because it's only in hindsight that we will know what was right to do."
