Can anyone explain what this song means?

Recommended Posts

I like to know the meanings of songs I'm listening to, and when I first heard this one years ago I had no clue what it meant. No matter how many times I listened to it, I just don't know. So could anyone help me out a little please? Thanks.


I am going away for a while

But I'll be back, don't try to follow me

'Cause I'll return as soon as possible

See, I'm trying to find my place

But it might not be here where I feel safe


We all learn to make mistakes

And run from them, from them

With no direction

We'll run from them, from them

With no conviction


'Cause I'm just one of those ghosts

Travling endlessly

Don't need no roads

In fact they follow me

And we just go in circles


Well now I'm told that this is life

And pain is just a simple compromise

So we can get what we want out of it

Would someone care to classify

Our broken hearts and twisted minds

So I can find someone to rely on


And run to them, to them

Full speed ahead

Oh, you are not useless

We are just


Misquided ghosts

Travling endlessly

The ones we trusted the most

Pushed us far away

And there's no one road

And we should not be the same

But I'm just a ghost

And still they echo me

They echo me in circles.

I think the best way to sum it up is to say that it's a song about feeling lost and needing to find purpose. 

It's one of my favorite songs and it's so personal to me. :)
