Defeat The Low – Aurora Avenue lyrics

Speaking from the tongue
Of an experienced simpleton
Who obviously would rather be
An emasculated, infantile complain

Keep it all to yourself
As it eats away your health
The attention, your ambition,
It was the root of all your guilt.
Fight fire with fire
And speak truth with every word you say
The attention, your ambition,
It was the root of all your pain.

You gave us something that I know we are all searching to find
To put it into words you redefined
Something new, something to relate to
I never met you, but I feel just what you went through

Keep it all to yourself
As it eats away your health
The attention, your ambition,
It was the root of all your guilt.
Fight fire with fire
And speak truth with every word you say.
You threw it all away.

Aurora avenue seemed to protect you
In your sleep I hope you find the peace you seek
Aurora avenue seemed to protect you
In your sleep I hope you find the peace you seek
You still seek
You used to sing of youth I used to know

Keep it all to yourself
As it eats away your health
The attention, your ambition,
It was the root of all your guilt.
Fight fire with fire
And speak truth with every word you say.
You threw it all away.

    If I'm purely going on what I thought about the song on first listen I thought it was about a man who keeps to himself but gives all that he can to everyone else. He wants everyone to be happy and the part about not meeting them can be like I've never truly known the person cause he wasn't very open. He was light to someones life and he felt a lot of guilt because he thought he didn't mean much to anyone. So the attention and ambition he had made him feel guilt for having them when he thought he couldn't make anyone happy. But thats my take on it.
