LyricsEdit

I was walking through the streets I could not hear my best friend call
He was feeling incomplete about to take his final fall
Last thing I remember there were tears of blood and just not mine
Any other day and I would save you from this cold decline

Everything they said about everything
Was a coming undone it's a life supreme
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah

Feasting on the flowers so fast and young
It's a light so bright that I bite my tongue
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah
The next dimension, show me in

We were moving in the world, expanding your realities
A force of nature on the verge, commanding abnormalities
Last thing I remember there was ringing in my selfish ears
Twenty-Six a number much too small for someone's golden years

Everything they said about everything
Was a coming undone it's a life supreme
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah

Feasting on the flowers so fast and young
It's a light so bright that I bite my tongue
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah
The next dimension, show me in

You get a little bit more this time when
You give a little bit for your brother's kind
Like she always said, "Oh, Don't look back, just look ahead"

You sing a little bit stronger when you
Remember the song of your old best friend
Like she always said, "Oh, don't look back, just look ahead"

Everything they said about everything
Was a coming undone it's a life supreme
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah

Feasting on the flowers so fast and young
It's a light so bright that I bite my tongue
I do and I don't, well I do and I don't, Oh yeah

QuotesEdit

“That song was inspired by Hillel Slovak, for sure,” Anthony sighs. “The verses reflect the last sorta few days or couple of weeks of his life and my thoughts about that time, which is still very strong in my consciousness - not in a bad way, but just trying to understand what happens to the young life of a person when they’re experimenting with altered states, and how we kind of lose ourselves to the point of no return like that, and also what a bizarre and powerful thing it could be to think that you know exactly what something is, and then in an instant realise that all of your ideas were wrong or incorrect in some way, or not what you thought they were, and just in a flash everything changes. And I think that happens to everyone at a certain point; something happens and you’re like, ‘I thought it was like this, but it’s actually like that. How could I have been so wrong about my ideas of life and philosophy?’ And so it’s kind of an homage to Hillel, but also an homage to the fact that we have to be open to change, and maybe the things that we’re so damn sure about aren’t really what we think they are.” -Clash 2017
