03. Yesterday

Well Meaning Fiction
by Mainstay


Watch my mind grow legs and wander
What did I expect to find out here?

I am only halfway here tonight
Say that You can take this off of my mind
Every time I go back I realize
that yesterday is never as good as it seems

I'm lost in the feelings that I thought were gone
Come in and make all of their light fade out - it fades out

Make their light fade out

Behind the Song:
"Too much of my life is spent in reflection...I think. Reminiscing about what could have been, or what wasn't can trap me for hours. Everyone escapes reality through different ways, be it music, television, sex, humor, video games, narcotics, sleeping, etc. we all like to be OUT of the moment. My preferred method of escapism is nostalgia. Thinking about yesterday and how great things were is very comforting. It's also heartbreaking when dwelt upon. I think at times we all feel "halfway here" because our hearts aren't contented in the moment, and that cold distance is a place where I am more than guilty of living. The truth is, the past is never as good as the movie in our mind. Things were never that good, and ironically enough, I was probably thinking about another yesterday at THAT point in my life too. Learning at every moment to be satisfied in who Christ is for us is the way to disarm our self-pitying reflection. Paul said he had "learned the key to being content in all circumstances...having much or little" - I think Paul was focused in a way that we all should strive for. - Justin Anderson (Mainstay)
