Oh, and there we were

Oh, and there we were

A group of kids growing up as the adults over us silently worried.

All in one place

We only just got raised, why do they keep saying we're the reason for the impenetrable doom of this space-age?

A generation lost in space

We only just got aged, how are we supposed to know how to wire new circuits and build new plumbings under crawlspaces?

With no time left

We only just got smart enough to shift the weight but not to blame but rather to clean up leftovers.

To start again

We must re-map out each set of standards and rules like going against them makes us instant expert backwoodsmen.

They caught the last train

We must go after the untamed only to see if it's someway we can somehow train ourselves.

For the coast, the Ocean roars across the Sunset's horizon, ruling over so many lives

The Body of Ocean has no special journey or direction, the Sea says fuck you and goes crazy when currents start to build up like a ball and chain.

Do you think time lives to embrace the passing down of each grain falling down to the very bottom, or sits and just watches over it's very own hourglasses?

Do you think we're strong enough to act with our conscious' wishes or will we fall into our fellows' compulsions?
