With headphones on the streets are silenced
Cars hum along to disrupt the quiet
You learn a lot about a place when you see it without a sun
You search for a shred of innocence but realize there is none

The open gutters collecting water
The unbreathable air we're all aware
You learn a lot about a place when you see it for what it is
It loses it feel of mystery and any hope that it can

GIVE ME A REASON NOT TO JUST START SCREAMING OUT LOUD

You can't convince me
What I want and what I need are separate things

All those distractions they'll beg us to stay
We'll give new meaning to running away

    General CommentThis song is about America and it's oblivion when it comes to wants and needs. It's about the resources we refuse conserve and choose to instead "run away".
