    You can't find it if you're dying to live. If you want to know the secret hang on.

    Whatever it is you'll work it out somewhere down the line; fear can only hinder you.

  • Reply EthanTerryMusic October 22, 2018 at 6:41 pm

    This video is so fucking beautiful. The symbolism is so very raw and basic, and still complex and disguised. People may watch this video and see a tree hugging weed dealer out of a job dancing in the street.
    But it's simply a man searching for meaning/answers/truth/progress/metamorphosis and he is seen walking a road between the hard, cold, industrialized, confined (fenced off) reality of his past; as everything that he has been through to survive and the beach, where he's been dabbling with the idea of taking a voyage into the brave new…and then retreating to the rocks and back to the street. The road is the divide between what he's hanging on to that prevents him from moving on with life, and what his dreams are made of, and he can be seen walking through the middle of this street dancing at the notion of that freedom, or pounding away at the fence in frustrating endearment.
    He starts sprinting at the point where the lyrics say "You can find it if you're dying to live. If you want to know the secret hang on". You see him fall but eventually this story leaves us with him standing on the shore with the waves finally at his feet.

    The title "Can We Hang On?" is a paradoxical irony in and of itself. Can we hang on to the past…please oh can we? or can we hang on for a little longer to learn the secret of happiness.

    Big fan, love your band’s artistic creativity/message. I recently read an interview where you guys talked about struggling with modern evangelical conservatism (I’m a preacher’s kid; yur speaking to the choir). Just curious where your journey is leading you guys spiritually. Completely understand if that’s too personal of a question- I just recently discovered a different band I was real into worships Satan, so I figured I’d float the question.

    I didn't come here from Quantico or suits or anything like that, but I came here from ALT 98.7 The Los Angeles alternative / Indie station. They have put me onto so much non-mainstream music it's ridiculous

    Lyrics

    I come here nine times asking you to not make it ten
    I'm peeling off all the honor and protecting my skin
    Apologize, I'm laying down my ego to rest
    Would you be mine forever? Just in case it exists

    I think about the old days
    What we didn't do to survive
    Do we get better with time?
    Tell me I'm wrong

    Looking back to the start who we were when we met
    This box of pictures tells a story when we fight, we forget
    And I can barely recognize those back that we were obsessed
    Can't cut out this madness and get back to the best

    Think about the old days
    What we didn't do to survive
    Do we get better with time?
    Tell me I'm wrong
    I'm looking to your old ways
    We follow the same dotted line
    Passing like ships in the night
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we hang on?
    Can we…
