Singled Out: Thought Transfer's Light My Way
"Another Mistake" I really didn't put too much thought into what I wanted to say, I just let the words come out on their own. But whenever I do that I have to decipher for myself afterwards what inspired the lyrics. It was a mix of 3 different topics that make up the lyrics.
The "every second we wait is just another mistake, every second it takes is just another mistake" lyrics touch on my feelings regarding the United States invasion of Iraq. I thought we lacked sufficient evidence to go there in the first place so every second longer it took us to come home was just another mistake. The "all I wanted to do was just to see you again" lyrics touch on a rough time I was having in a relationship that I thought was ending.
The "believe" lyrics in the chorus touch on my personal belief that there is a designed quality to life but that I don't know what exactly is the driving force behind our existence. So when I say "don't believe them" I am speaking about atheists. Although I also do not believe in the traditional version of God. The music has a feeling of heightened anxiety so it's fitting that the lyrics match that emotion.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
