Trigger Lyrics


Have we lost the spark or a guide?
What's the latest on the screen?
Can't be too late to turn around
I need all the help from you

I need to find
Something to blame for a long lost time

[Pre-Chorus:]

I am running from something that...

    What about the green and red... our days pass by, a mock to the stock market - news on the tv... could be?

    "Have we lost the spark or a guide?
    What's the latest on the screen?
    Can't be too late to turn around
    I need all the help from you"

    Have we lost our knowledge on how to live?
    What is the media saying today?
    We can turn this around, we can live on our own
    But we must confide in each other.

    "I need to find
    Something to blame for a long lost time"

    There is something that has caused this thought in our society, what is it?

    "I am running from something that I don't know
    I am searching for something, which way to go?
    I am trying to separate what's real
    I'm running in a wheel"

    I am keeping away from unknown things
    I search for a 'right' way to live
    Trying to figure out what is real and surreal
    It is a never ending circle, a wheel.


    "Is it dark or is it bright?
    What's the latest on the screen?
    Please tell me my name
    I haven't checked it today"

    Is my future dark or bright?
    What are they trying to feed us today?
    Tell me my alias, it seems to change by the day.

    "From green to red our days pass by
    Waiting for a sign to tell us why
    Are we dancing all alone?"

    Our days go by like sand in an hourglass, never stopping
    We wait for them to tell us why they go so quick
    Are we on our own?

    "Collect some stars to shine for you
    And start today 'cause there's only a few
    A sign of times my friend"

    Find a way to shine, not artificially,
    And find that way today, there aren't many days left
    A sign of times my friend

    "My friend avoid infinity
    Are you for real?"

    Stay away from what is said to last forever
    Are you for real (asking after person didn't avoid 'infinity')

    "Just scratch the surface
    And you will find
    Something to blame for a long lost time"

    You keep searching, but the answer is closer than you think, don't second guess
    And you will find
    What the cause of all your lost time truly is.

    "from green to red our day passed by, we were waiting for a sign to tell us why are we dancing all alone"- we need to live life to the fullest, and enjoy those we love while they're here, because tomorrow, they could be gone...
    they also use TV as an example of one of those things we waste out numbered days on "whats latest on the screen...i need to find something to blame for long lost time...."

    Another thing present in the lyrics is that we may waste time looking for something, chasing a goal or something we think we need, and not enjoying what or who we have...

    I think it's about Hollywood and how stupid people will do anything that the TV tells them to do. Also it means to take life in your own hands and living it while you can because life is short.

    It's about taking your part in the world quick because life isn't that long(EX: the chorus)
