Empire Of The Sun – World lyrics

I asked the world a question
When did you begin?
I asked him of his problems
When did you go wrong?
My singing cells have power
An army by my side

You so want my mind, you trick my time
And I run around and you're on your own
Without with, without you say at home, at home
How hard do you make it go?

No mothers and fathers to make us anymore
No arms or eyes to shape us like life itself
Then a thousand red coats scorn me

You so want my mind, you trick my time
And I run around and you're on your own
Without with, without you say at home, at home
How hard do you make it go?

You so want my mind, you trick my time
And I run around and you're on your own
Without with, without you say at home, at home
How hard do you make it go?

It's just a memory
Billions, and billions
And billions of lights and hearts
Befalling to embers through to coal
Save from dust to dust
To wind, to desert, to death

I asked the world a question
When did you begin?
I asked him of his problems
When did you go wrong?

Those lead you who wake from the dreams
Which lies and shapes the farm in their eyes

You so want my mind, you trick my time
And I run around and you're on your own
Without with, without you say at home, at home
How hard do you make it go?

You so want my mind, you trick my time
And I run around and you're on your own
Without with, without you say at home, at home
How hard do you make it go?

    I think this song is a man asking the world where does it begin, and what went wrong in the world and why it is the way it is, and the world simply asks him back "why do you make it so hard, it doesn't have to be, all of this living and dreaming and dying is all whatever you want it to be." the man singing feels the world and life is above what his mind can comprehend so he says "you so want my mind" "you trick my time" means that time in essence doesn't exist without the world turning. the world creates time which tricks him into thinkin he has not enough of it, but its all just a memory, this life, its all a dream and it is endless and there is more than this world and this song to me tells that.
