Fear, and panic in the air
I want to be free
From desolation and despair
And I feel like everything I sow
Is being swept away
And I refuse to let you go

I can't get it right
Get it right
Since I met you

Loneliness be over
When will this
Loneliness be over?

Life, will flash before my eyes
So scattered and lost
I want to touch the other side
And no one thinks they are to blame
Why can't we see
When we bleed, we bleed the same

I can't get it right
Get it right
Since I met you

Loneliness be over
When will this
Loneliness be over?

Loneliness be over
When will this
Loneliness be over?

    The title is a reference to a book called The Limits to Growth (1972) and the Club of Rome think-tank who would create a "map of the problematique" detailing the "global problematique" - a set of likely challenges the world might face in the near future. It could also be a reference to Mars, as its two moons are called "Phobos" and "Deimos", the greek Gods of fear and panic (the first line). I think a lot of the time Matt just titles his songs with something that sounds cool, like Stockholm Syndrome, he said in an interview that it sounded good. I'd love to have a look inside his mind, he's wise beyond his years.
