There's a place not that far from here
Where people go when their dreams have died
As I walk from it's faceless streets
I must be the last one alive
Where are you, you're not with me
Numb my mind with this fantasy
Watching people live and die on screen

Where are you, you're not with me
Where are you, I'm free

You left me high and dry it changed me
You lied to me now I am angry
And if the sun comes in your room
And awakes you from your vanity"
You won't find me "cause I'll be
On top a mountain pissing on your grave
Na, na, na...

There's a place from where I just arrived
And I escaped the last one alive

Where are you
You're not with me
Where are you
I'm free

You left me high and dry it changed me
You lied to me now I am angry
And if the sun comes in your room
And awakes you from your vanity"
You won't find me "cause I'll be
On top a mountain pissing on your grave

Doesn't it sound rather similar to The Church...? :ask: Nevertheless, it's not too bad...
I had this exact same thought. Glad to see I'm not the only one.
I usually go for the tune first, which in this case is pretty good. Then I started reading the comments on the lyrics and finally listening to them. Yeesh.
this is vastly inadequate.
I like a lot of other VAST songs, but this one doesn't grab me.
Ah, the era of carillon bell midi samples. I guess Enya had to be outdone.
"You left me high and dry and changed me...". Diaper reference? :ask: themotion wrote:

At first I thought that voice was James McMurtry...
Courage the Cowardly Dog is on. This gets muted. No contest.

"You left me high and dry and changed me" Say no more: 20-something angst. Those who don't get it, didn't get it.

Something about the line "You lied to me and now I'm angry." that makes me cringe every time. It seems cheesy to me. Maybe because nobody has to SAY they're angry, you can usually tell it by their demeanor. But in this case he's saying he's angry, but doesn't necessarily seem too mad. He's like the person that when you tell a joke, they say "That's funny." but don't actually laugh.
For me, it's the 'Na na na..' section. Strangely tricky lyric to get away with - doesn't work in this song. "That's funny" /Seinfeld, The Switch
sounds like u2 and the alarm which is not a bad thing... good song!
this is much better than that other "dead angels" song that's always on.

I was thinking it was Muse.
Liked this song a lot

Catherine Wheel, Joy Division, emo with an 80s undertow, because of the bass...

PLAY -----"I Dont Have Anything"
I still must prefer VAST or Nude to this album though...
My favorite one-man-band aside from NIN. Jon puts together some great jams.
A VAST improvement over the last few songs. I like the tone of rebellion.
