"Your stolen memories
will find you
in the last place
you would think to look
All the time that it took to locate
Maybe itíll just pass by you
or rip right through your heart
Underneath the surface
we break apart"

seriously....these Glass Arrows lyrics are blowing me away just on their own. i can't wait to hear them in context with the actual song!

i'm pretty sure you hear a preview of it in sequence 8 if i'm not mistaken...it's the vocals session with anthony on the roof

idk if anyone has mentioned that yet because i barely read this shit anymore, a lot bitching and bullshit nonsense killed this thread months ago

EDIT: i lied, it's the one where anthony plays the show at the beginning

I Felt Free:

"Nothing new to say
Nothing to report Ďcause the future happened yesterday

If I could tell the truth
I could make you stay
but forever seems so far away

I fell apart in your arms
for the last time
And I felt free to do what I want
because of the things you told me,
because of the things you told me, you told me
I felt free


You could be the end of me
Too many shades of gray
Itís just another pointless game that we play

I couldnít tell the truth
Iíll never make you stay
because tomorrow always happens yesterday

I fell apart in your arms
for the last time
And I felt free to do what I want
because of the things you told me
because of the things you told me, you told me
I felt free

I felt free

I will learn to live again for now Iím breaking
all the things I couldn't mend without escaping
I will learn to love again
I will learn to love
I will learn"

last part reminds me of the dear hunter
"one of these days, he will learn to love again"
would be cool if it had similar looping vocals, i LOVE that part in life & death.

I wonder if Anthony still gets inspiration from eternal sunshine. You know, with "stolen memories" and all.

^ + :

"Cause you were my ally once, you were my confidante
I need somebody close to be close to...forever!! FOREVER!!"

"And the earth and its skin will open up and birth out a perfect mirror, that makes all our reflections clear"

"The more that you get the less you are"

"Never underestimate the daylight"

"Shriveled up under desert lights, eaten up in the night"

"Nothing new to say, nothing to report cause the future happened yesterday"

"I must admit now going down within this ship, I couldn't have a better crew to travel with. If I make it in one piece back to land, I will never sail again. NEVER!"

"Either way I'm going to hell"

"And nothing's going to change that hopeless feeling I get when you say you'll understand...and I know you can't..."

"I made a promise to you long ago, I'd do the best that I can, I'd try and keep it"

"Maybe it'll just pass by you, or rip right through your heart"

"Always keep those fingers clean"

"Slipshod cavalier"

I know we can't pretend to never make a sound again"

"I've taken a life and mine for granted, neither planned or in passion / Into the forest towards the mother,
though I've destroyed her favorite son"

"Disappeared from public places, never seen again. How long has it been....HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN?"

Where have all the signs gone? I don't know where I am without them.......

--------

From out of my head still making sense to anyone.... (am i crazy or are we all?)

----------

STAY AS STILL AS YOU THINK YOU SHOULD BE.....
your stolen memories WILL find you.    

(dont be overproduced by influence, those memories aren't 100% yours)

--------

The future happened yesterday. (and it was born from 1 idea)

--------

you treat me like im a DISEASE. (why do i torture myself?)

------

sadly, i walk around this place on the shells of eggs.... my shoulders are cold.....

(the universe is your home, feel like it.)


--------

It's the loneliest place, i havent spent much time there, it wasnt allowed, it just didnt feel right... cuz its all built upon a burial ground, it just doesnt feel right.
I would love to take you there,
ITS' WILL, IT FLOWS THROUGH ME...
--FIGHT OPEN BOTH OF MY EYES, i still see an empty space? so empty......
but if i keep them closed, there's still a chance something is out there.

(taking secrets to my grave)


-----------

I've taken a life, and MINE for granted (do NOT waste)

riddled with guilt and CRAZY panic, my body turns my mind around,
INTO the forest, TOWARDS the mother, but i've destroyed her favorite sun..........  (can we go back to where we came from?)

all the things i should've done, all my life, PASSING, before my eyes, all the time.
I WAS AWAKE. I WAS AWAKE. i WAS awake... ALL the time.     (the entire time i should have known....)

-----------

id be terrified if i'd leave this place today..... it's where i threw my love away.       (spend your 1 life wisely)

the earth and its' kin, birth out a perfect mirror that makes all our reflections clear.   (we can't see ourselves ever)


........dont say youre sorry cuz i cant believe you.......


--------

going down within this ship, i couldnt have a better crew.   (thanks universe + earth + body)

-------



its so sad for us when we find ourselves giving away, going to waste.... (do NOT waste)

i don't know if this is worth the bump, but i just found this and thought it might be worth it:

Quote

Líesprit de escalier: (French) The feeling you get after leaving a conversation, when you think of all the things you should have said. Translated it means ďthe spirit of the staircase.Ē

I had that on my FB 'box under profile picture' for a while.

And the definition for l'esprit de escalier (I like saying that o.o) was really interesting. I always wondered what that meant...

I'm gonna be a French nerd and correct all of you, there is another "liaison" in that phrase..... so it's actually

"L'esprit d'escalier"

but it is an awesome term for a feeling I used to always think about, I'm glad it has a name now.

Sorry to bump this old thread, I didn't know where else to look. Does anybody know the few lines he sings in The Great Golden Baby (i think they're from the original demo song "Juturna" or whatever): "Back in the day, when I was young...." etc? That's the only part I can make out

EDIT: Nevermind, I just watched a newer video of this on YouTube that was pretty clear, and the lyrics hit me pretty hard actually. I imagine a lot of people feel this way a lot, I know I do:

"Back in the day when I was young,
I'm not a kid anymore.
Some days I see you and wish I was a kid again.

(Somedays I wish I was.)
