07. The Setting Sun

Nothing Is Sound
by Switchfoot



 

Iíve got a wound that doesnít heal, burning out again
Burning out again
Iím not sure which of me is real. Iím alone again,
Burning out again.
My hope runs underneath it all the day that Iíll be home
It wonít be long, I belong somewhere past this setting sun
Finally free, finally strong, somewhere back where I belong
Theyíre selling shares of me again, Iím not buying it,
Iím not buying it
My wound grows deeper than the skin. Thereís no hiding it,
Thereís no hiding it
My hope runs underneath it all, the day that Iíll be home
Finally back where we belong
Finally free
Itís gonna take you to the setting sun
Let the weak say I am strong and it wonít be long
Let the right say I was wrong and it wonít be long
Let us find where we belong, beyond this setting sun,
Beyond this setting sun

Behind the Song:
"I wrote this one in Australia a while back. I remember it well. Sometimes I get really down on myself and the world around me and wonder why we're all here, spinning around on this planet. It seems that we're unable to escape the ugliness that lies within us nor around us and yet we all have this immense appreciation and appetite for beauty and truth: a paradox indeed. Here's another one- the worlds of politics, business, or even music tend to behave with the social etiquette of a Jr. High School playground. Do we all become marginalized as mere products to be sold? I'm not buying it. Neither the good nor the bad. I don't believe the hype. Meaningless, meaningless, a chasing after the wind. There's a place where all of these shadows will fade and no amount of hype can take that away from me." Ė Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
