I think its about the search for attention.

Creation glows bright

like the third distant star

The fire in the night

defines who you are

Take a bow

watch your shadow bend

Tease the button

but never press send

Know the sun

will one day turn black

You are the one

who'll fall prey to attack

Take a bow

spy no shadow at all

Feel legs collapse

and your future fall

Amongst the dark

and thick cold air

You calmly park

your half crazed stare

Take a bow

watch boredom reborn

Only stale air

circulates your yawn

Questions revolve

aound an unstable church

Answers dissolve

as you increase your search

Take a bow

eyes set to the floor

Those who exit

demand NO encore

Creation glows dim

all songs are sung

Now we begin

to critic all you've become

Goodnight
