Well some they say it's not even funny
And there you stand not even trying
They say it is in line with the ageing
Sometimes noise is just your mind

But the lesson is vague in the lightning
Shows a dear with her mind on the moor
And now something with the sun is just different
Since they shook the earth in 1904

And as I lower down I hear it's a message
And it's 1902, just telling people to get out
And if there was just a way I could tell them
It's been long but you were right

And the singing is slow and so quiet
Like the sound when you sweep off the floor
And now something with the dirt is just different
Since they shook the earth in 1904

And when the night is young but the bridge is up
Something passing by I was sure
And the only one you can tell it to
Well it's the only one that ever knows

And since more robbers made to go through my window
Here is something so strange and something louder than before
And you living with no light or direction
But damn precise and now you know

When the leaving is hard but you go now
And you feel what you drag across the floor
Because something with these trails are just different
Since they shook the earth in 1904

And when the night is young but the bridge is up
Something passing by I was sure
And the only one you will tell it to
Well it's the only one who will ever know

And some will say it's not even healthy
But body is young and mind is sure
That something is alright with your thinking
Cause they shook the earth in 1904

    It seems to have vague references to how our perception of life changes as we get older. The mind can trick us into believing anything, and for me he seems to be speaking about illusions and how they shape our beliefs.

    The us gained control of the panama zone and began construction on the panama canal in 1904 - makes the most sense to me.
