lyrics

So reluctant to abandon our scenic perch
Where the panoramic chaos is displayed from a safe distance
Here we calmly collect the sounds one at a time
As they gently arrive only whispers
Though these sounds are strangely comforting
They symbolize alienation

But familiarity is our comfort
So we relax in a familiar place
Far from the white-hot center of conviction
But in that fierce fire is where life begins

To protect is to deprive

For every emotional survival on this hardly beaten path
We've perished in a trillion ways on hypothetical journeys
So many gifts squandered
Living in a projected state

In this place the allure of our freedom
Is only matched of our devastating irrelevance
But more devastating still
Is the eternal solitude

So reluctant to abandon our scenic perch
Where the panoramic chaos is displayed from a safe distance
Here we calmly collect the sounds one at a time
There's only room for my eyes on this perch
Even if you could join me
I would treat you as an enemy
For I was forged in this heresy

One day we will make our way to the distant sounds
And into the mirage where the deceptive heat waves dance
And when we are convinced that the flames have blinded us
The beacon of your sweet epiphany will pale all that is around
And we will truly know the meaning of fire
And for you we will burn
We will burn forever
