Best Laid Plans

from by Arcade Rivals



We enter this world with only instincts
Navigating with the guidance of those
Who are trying to survive the hurricane
Clinging to common ground and consciousness

We never knew what was round the corner
An ancient blueprint that has grown obsolete

So we take it, take it, take it to our fathers
Blame it, blame it, blame it on the prideful
Face it, face it, face it for our mothers
Chase it, chase it, chase it for the wrathful

We wait for our chance to arrive some day
Assaulting ceilings that we cannot break
We're stuck inside of what we kindly call
A serendipitous anti-disaster

We're running so fast, but not so far

A burden placed upon each generation
To live up to the standards of the last
The measure of success keeps moving further
With forefathers believing in the past

Imagined narratives
Determining our worth
