Broken Bells – Vaporize lyrics

What amounts to a dream anymore?
A crude device; A veil on our eyes
A simple plan we'd be different from the rest
And never resign to a typical life

Common fears start to multiply
We realize we're paralyzed
Where'd it go, All that precious time?
Did we even try to stem the tide?

Why should we waste it on
Buying into the same old lies?
The longer we wait around
The faster the years go by

It's not too late
To feel a little more alive
Make our escape
Before we start to vaporize

Doubtless, we've been through this
So if you want to follow me you should know
I was lost then and I am lost now
And I doubt I'll ever know which way to go

    In my view this song lyrics describe people's way of looking differently in fear of the unknown in "life" than what they used to
    in fact, the point is that the lyrics "message" is living life as kind of "individual" believing in yourself and escaping other people thoughts of what is correct. But inside all your thought you might get lost and continue the insecure-fearing feeling you had in the beginning.

    We always dream about having a different life. But why think of it as impossible; a dream. If we thought of one easy way to change our life, our reality would be better. Instead we mope around and just dream of everything. You start fearing, more and more and you start to realize you're stuck and can't change what you; re fearing. If we wait for our life to change, and not change it, time will go by; you'll run out of time. You need to get out of your habits of feeling like nothing is ever good enough, and escape the fear before it really is to late to change your life. Even if you try, you may still feel lost and things might never get better. But there is always room in everyones life to even try and change the inevitable.
