about

How we console ourselves with myths, or try to live on through our creations, which are at best a shadow of the creators themselves. How we can't see ourselves from outside of the biases of our time and place, because those very things define us and ultimately give our lives meaning.

lyrics

Whether you think that you're a star,
Or I'm up here every night for you.
Whether you're driving in your car,
Or I'm riding my bike to work...
Well it don't work!
And it don't do no good to fake it.
We're all headed for
That endless corridor of lights.
The peace behind the night.
The eyes stare from inside your heart.

Nothing ever changes.
We're all people of the ages
We belong to.
We can't escape our cages,
No matter which god we're praying
And clinging to.

Bought this t-shirt at the show.
Am I original enough for you?
Wear the makeup, play the part.
Shoot an arrow through the heart of truth.
Always make sure you shoot to kill,
Not just for the thrill -
Oh, it's all just a game
We're losing all the same.
Every shackle, every chain,
Every mirror, this refrain, it's you.

Nothing ever changes.
We're all people of the ages
We belong to.
We can't escape our cages,
No matter which god we're praying
And clinging to.

Nothing ever changes.
We're all people of the ages
We belong to.
We can't escape our cages,
No matter which god we're praying
And clinging to.
