If I could walk on water
Like Jesus did before
If I knew all the answers
To keep you coming back for more
If I could paint a picture
And then cut off my own ear
If I chose all the right colors
Would this just disappear.

Because we run in vicious circles
Until we're dizzy with disdain
And there's miles and miles between us
And yet we still remain.

If I could write a poem
And find the perfect words
And then put them all to music
Just so my voice gets heard

Because we run in vicious circles
Until we're dizzy with disdain
And there's miles and miles between us
And yet we still remain

So if I could walk on water
Like Jesus did before
And if I knew all the answers
I'd keep you coming back for more

Because we run in vicious circles
Until we're dizzy with disdain
And there's miles and miles between us
And yet we still remain (X2)

    To me this songs is the distance between me and my teenage daughter. Though it may not be actually miles away, it feels that way. Which are the vicious circles of our family.

    About a relationship that is over because of some uncertainty; however, the two keep the same feelings for each other even when they are miles away.

    When I hear this song, it makes me think of a long time relationship that has been full of amazing peaks and heartbreaking, soul shattering pits. Yet by some unknown miracle and the crazy love they once shared, these two always seem to reconnect. Sadly, every time they try to find that fire, the light is dull and the distance between them widens due to heart ache, distrust, and diminishing self-worth. Before they know it, just like every other time, they cannot recognize one another anymore. Why? Because the wounds never had the chance to heal before being ripped open again. The lines that were said, were just that. Lines! False hope for another new. The phony empathy wears of, the masked compassion and simulated intimacy are gone. Again, you have no clue who you are looking at and the distance has widened! One cannot blame the other for feeling let down, shattered and taken advantage of. When what should come natural can't even be squeezed out of the fictitious. Life becomes a nightmare and the want for what once was thins with time and you are left with regret and internal hostility for ones self for allowing themselves to be succumbed by the self centered, egotistical asshole with a major lack of empathy, truth and genuine love for the one they have crushed. Life is hard and sometimes you have to sacrifice in order to gain but one should never allow themselves to get caught up in such a "Vicious Circle"
