06. Birds Of Prey

by Anberlin


stuttering machine

iron moving fast

you want to go back in time

and try to change the past

answers in the math

science on your side

whats the worst that could happen

when two worlds collide

and it all ends the same

memories circle

like birds of prey

waiting for the right mind

to drive insane

donít look back

theres nothing to see

regret is nothing more than

a toxic disease

why even play those games

whats the point to entertain

all the best mistakes

will always have last names


actors take their places

your thoughts dance on stage

the curtains they are closing

on a role you canít sustain

Behind the Song:
This song is a story of a person who longs to create a time machine to fix all their past mistakes; I think we all have those thoughts, but all they are is thoughts.

But what if you could? What would it accomplish? It seems we learn more from our failures than we do our successes. It feels like we need to stumble in order to learn how not to fall in the future.

If you let regret just hover it will begin to eat you alive, bitterness will devour, and who do these thoughts hurt? Not those who hurt youÖ these cancerous memories only end up killing you, and no one else. - Stephen Christian
