Idlewild A Distant History Lyrics

Last updated: 04/06/2009 11:00:00 AM

This fascination, where did it come from?
What does it mean when you're fascinated
by things that you know you'll never see?
I overheard this conversation as it started to belong to me

You're convinced that where you're born is where you're from
No, You're convinced that where you're born is not where you're from

It's only where you're waiting to see it through
And not understanding why I have to
Be reminded that I'll tell you when I've
Waited for longer than I have to
Oh could you just tell me now, couldn't you tell me now?

With even more than money spent
There's nothing left of your life
With even more than money spent
There's nothing left of your life

All these descriptions, where did they come from?
Do they describe what we mean perfectly?
And how can I explain to you how I know that?
It's a natural order of the things that I believe

You're convinced that where you're born is where you're from
No, You're convinced that where you're born is not where you're from

It's only where you're waiting to see it through
And not understanding why I have to
Be reminded that you'll tell me when I've
Waited for longer than I have to
Oh could you just tell me now, couldn't you tell me now?

With even more than money spent
There's nothing left of your life
With even more than money spent
There's nothing left of your life
There's nothing left of your life
There's nothing there left of your life
