“True progress means matching the world to the vision in your head, but we always change the vision instead.” Circles, Thrice (Vagrant Records) 2009

Pessimistic much? It’s probably rare to find someone from our generation who isn’t cynical. Nonetheless, we can be persistent. I don’t know that the vision changes, but I think people get tired and are often sold a vision that isn’t what it seems.

  1. It’s not pessimistic. Its’ realistic. People do sit around and talk about what we wish the world was like, but don’t follow through with it. Then when any progress is made, that isn’t what we were truly looking for, we just pretend like it was our vision in the first place. I must also agree with you that people get tired, or fall for visions with a facade, but I think Dustin (Thrice) got it right on this one. The rest of the lyrics compliment that line, and really elaborate on his point. Plus, it’s a good song anyways 🙂

  2. there are execeptions in mankind, but not enough to make a difference, therefore the song stands true. its scary how on point it is with the way things are now.. it seems like everyone has given up hope…
