Take me back to a simpler time
I never knew the difference
And the words were mine
Another man could take it all in his stride
My tracks have left a stain
We were fresh coming off the vine
Thrown into a barrel of the cheapest wine
Bottled in a store with a neon sign
And we're all the ones to blame

Cause in our hearts we know it's true...

We got oohs, we got ahhs
We got everything a man could need
We got oohs, we got ahhs
Still got a mountain full of mouths to feed

Tear the ocean and the skies apart
Circle up the wagons underneath the stars
Watch us spin around like a meteorite
It goes down and down and down

Cause in our hearts we know it's true...

We got oohs, we got ahhs
We got everything a man could need
We got oohs, we got ahhs
Still got a mountain full of mouths to feed

Flashing the lights
Drawing us in
Flashing the lights
And then do it again

Flashing the lights
As the sirens call
Drawing us in
So they can watch us fall

We got oohs, we got ahhs
We got everything a man could need
We got oohs, we got ahhs
Still got a mountain full of mouths to feed

    It has to do with the lure of the glitz, glamour and decadence of modern culture... The lust of the world. We pursue our selfish pleasures while children go on starving.

    I think this song is talking about a longing to go back to simpler times, and being faced with the temptation that culture presents.

    The sounds put together have a mezmerizing feel. I believe that the lyrics reflect a culture consumed and addicted in stuff and self. Always makes me ponder what would happen if everything in the mall one day vanished. What would we be living for?
