Circadia [Lyrics]


I met you on Baxter street, you had someplace to go

but you were buying cigarettes outside of a candy store.

I asked you for the time and then we got to talking

After a while, we set a date that night.

There was a little chill, remember giving you my coat

As we sat without a care in Arden Park

Hypnotic music played as people danced in the streets

Unaware that up above guns blazed like fireworks.


Is it coming through all the voices here that call to you

Running through your head, all those stories that you read

Did you dream this city was the answer to all your small-town prayers?

But tomorrow we’ll all be gone and there’ll be nothing left of Circadia.


I stole a glance at your face as we drove on down the highway

Thinking “God we’re going nowhere fast”.

We saw those city lights shining neon through the night

Trying to guide us on our way back home

But that’s all gone...


Is it coming through all the voices here that call to you

Running through your head, all those stories that you read

Did you dream this city was the answer to all your small-town prayers?

But tomorrow we’ll all be gone and there’ll be nothing left of Circadia
