I'm racing racing towards it
Like when I was a small boy
Cutting through a waving field
Decorated by summer sunlight
Unable to remember
Unable to forget
Unaware yet at peace
Unaware yet scared
I'm racing racing towards it
With fear and excitement
They seem unseperable
They seem so far apart
They are my close friends
They are my very ghosts
I'm racing towards it
Holding perfectly still
In the race of standing still

    General CommentThis song i can heavily relate to. This song speaks to me as going into Christianity and being hated for doing so. "They seem unseperable, they seem so far apart..." While you have your friends, they may not agree with your beliefs, sadly. I have experienced this and this song means alot to me. It makes me think alot about staying with my beliefs and not straying, standing firm with it and having to deal with the negativity of people against my beliefs. Racing towards it, Holding perfectly still.

    General Commentwow... that's a good explanation of one of my favourtie Zao songs... i never really understood what was meant by the lyrics... i love the lyrics just because of how poetic they are, the whole opposites thing... i like this explanation, and even if it's not what Dan meant, it can sure mean that...

    General CommentWhen I saw Zao right after the album came out, they said the song was about dealing with Panic Attacks.

    General Commenti believe this song is about life and how life is pointed towards a destination a race of standing still, i think it talks about good friends that you have along the way that you spend as much time as you can with but they still have a different outlook on life and a different personality and when you die or move away they will be like ghosts of you because you have left a part of you with them life is a race towards death some people are scared some people are at peace (possibly because of their religeon) no matter what your doing you are in a race, a race to the end
