Pressing on about our business
comfort is getting too expensive
hot shots for the pigeons with a death sentence
youre something like a pistol thats been polished bright
but if it never leaves the holster it can never save your life

[To be alone, to be alive]
i need a meaning i can get behind
a better message to subscribe to

set sun im an hour older
mile markers punctuate the shoulder
harboring delusions of grandeur
youre something like a canvas thats been stretched and primed
you could become something priceless or you could be a waste of time

i need a meaning i can get behind
a better message to subscribe to
this is the time to be alive
if you consider where complaining gets you
were living much too comfortably for me
keep drifting keep drifting aimless
stay with me and we'll stay busy on endless trips to anywhere to end up where we'll be

    General Commentyes, these lyrics are awesome! I think it's obvious that this song is about the psychopathological condition called megalomania.. where you think you're really rich, powerful or even god.

    "i need a meaning i can get behind" reflects that, maybe that he is becoming or feeling obsessed and needs something good in his "real" life to not get completely taken away by this condition

    at least thats my feeling.. what do you think?
    anyway, fucking deep stuff!
