I'm keeping up, keeping up with the time lapse lifeline
And they can run they can run from the font to the Last Rites
And we can hear we can hear the first beat to the flat line
I'm keeping up, keeping up with the time lapse lifeline
And once it's done

Oh we dreamed a life
It was just like that, was like that
And just like that, and just like that it's done

Back it up, back it up
Stop, fast-forward, rewind
And watch the sun, watch the moon taking turns in the same sky
And you were dead as the leaves, now you're new like the spring-time
Back it up, back it up
Stop, fast-forward, rewind
And once it's done

Oh we dreamed a life
It was just like that, was like that
And just like that, and just like that it's done
Oh we dreamed a life
It was just like that, was like that
And just like that, and just like that it's done

Still we stand with the help of a steady hand
Capture images of boy and man
Till it's done
And 7 years combined is just the flicker of a neon sign
Little negative of hopes refined
Till they're done, oh they're done

Oh we dreamed a life
It was just like, was like that
And just like that, and just like that it's done
Oh we dreamed a life
It was just like, was like that
And just like that, and just like that it's done

    It's a song that reminds me that life is an always moving on "movie" and what is in the past stays in the past and when tomorrow comes it will be a new beginning. :)

    To me, this song is about how two people have dreamed a life for themselves that never existed in reality... The inner and outer lifeline didn't follow each other, but despite the pain they have collections of their memories together.. They realize how fleeting their time was together

    Second line should read: "And they can run they can run from the font to the Last Rites"

    It's a catholic christian thing-- the font is the vessel that holds the water for a baby's baptism and Last Rites are one of seven sacraments that a priest must administer to a member of the religion. The priest gives Last Rites to a person who is about to die. So that's the whole life-line aspect of that line.
