07. The Setting Sun

Nothing Is Sound
by Switchfoot



 

Ive got a wound that doesnt heal, burning out again
Burning out again
Im not sure which of me is real. Im alone again,
Burning out again.
My hope runs underneath it all the day that Ill be home
It wont be long, I belong somewhere past this setting sun
Finally free, finally strong, somewhere back where I belong
Theyre selling shares of me again, Im not buying it,
Im not buying it
My wound grows deeper than the skin. Theres no hiding it,
Theres no hiding it
My hope runs underneath it all, the day that Ill be home
Finally back where we belong
Finally free
Its gonna take you to the setting sun
Let the weak say I am strong and it wont be long
Let the right say I was wrong and it wont 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." Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
