Too blind to know your best.
Hurrying through the forks without regrets.
Different now, every step feels like a mile.
All the lights seem to flash and pass you by.

So how's it gonna be.
When it all comes down you're cycling trivialities.

Don't know which way to turn.
Every trifle becoming big concerns.
All this time you were chasing dreams,
without knowing what you wanted them to mean.

So how's it gonna be.
When it all comes down you're cycling trivialities.
So how's it gonna be.
When it all comes down you're cycling trivialities.

Who cares in a hundred years from now.
All the small steps, all your shitty clouds.
Who cares in a hundred years from now.
Who'll remember all the players.
Who'll remember all the clowns.

So how's it gonna be.
When it all comes down you're cycling trivialities.

So what does this really mean.
When it all comes down you're cycling trivialities.
Cycling trivialities.
Cycling trivialities

    complete nihilism. and for an example i will now type an incoherent mess that is, ultimately, as meaningful as the best attempt to interpret this song in order to fufill the 50 words quota. ;alskfdj sda;fkdgueoijvboib90u08e aodiu t0eatu aspout098 agjape8tu awp8siosd nvn zofigaopruawp8g ao ogh ogh09wa8u408 hgoauhpiua r0g8u aw4tu apwoi apogi 0r8u g0ih p4t 4tu8aw48iapsodgha pag8 4p8 4ihv poaiugh ap8u ghgapoir a4809 aghp9gia hp9g p9g gp9g pu hdfahadfskjhaiujhaeioau4y o7yawu7auwagh iu 9a apwuh aw9uh wa98 a9pugh awr9pug

    People don't realize their full potential in life...they run through every day so fast and never slow down. Everything has become routine and people don't think before they act. Every step you take feels like a mile means where are you going? Anywhere? Its as if you're running in place, not taking any action. Everything passes you by so fast and you wonder whats in store after this thing we call life? So hows it gonna be in the end...whos going to remember all the loud mouths and sly cats? Do they even matter...? You don't know really what to do...you look around and people worry about everything they can think of. And all this time you have been dreaming of doing something but you've never put it into action...once again back to the every step seems like a mile verse. you never find out what you actually wanted from those dreams...why did you want them to come true although they havent? So who gives a shit a hundred years from now what some human being did...? Whos going to acknowledge YOU? So what does this really mean? Well it means be yourself and don't follow the trails people have already taken...put your words into action and make your own legacy, for yourself. I saw Jose Gonzales perform this at Bonnaroo in Manchester, TN this June. It was mesmerizing! This is the music people live for!

    It's about someone who too hastily left a solid relationship to peruse what she/he thought was their dream, probably influenced by another person outside of the relationship. In time the one who fled has since come to realize their big dream was trivial or petty and in time ("100 years") who will remember the "players"? What was left behind could have been significant in 100 years, like a family that wasnt made possible because the relationship was abandoned.
