Fiction

about

This track has always been about the daily struggle of getting by, of having a dream. It's about lying to yourself, to others, but being honest in moments where you are most alone. It's about a humans ability to love and withhold that same love for self serving reasons. It's about hope and accepting change. It's about moving forward and not letting things define you so completely that you lose you own strength to adapt and accept.

lyrics

Once there was a fortune, every man wanted to own
Kept him at work all night, kept him away from home

And that same old fortune, every woman held in her breast
Keeping it locked up tight, always waiting for the best

Those playful children, I beat they'll never know
What's waiting for them, depending on how the grow

We're all so lost, just searching around, we're all so lost and getting down

That history of memories, that you're clinging to
every time you made the right decision, but mostly the things you never do

So full of fiction and fantasy, they're always waiting for you
All the times that you've forgotten and the ones you hold onto

I'm betting there all just stories, the ones you tell at night,
When you're looking for a reason, or when you're starting a fight

We're all so lost, just searching around, we're all so lost and getting down

There never was a fortune, except for what you already have
So open your eyes, open your eyes and be glad that...

We're all so lost, just searching around, we're all so lost and getting down
