We Can’t Afford to Stoke Idle Hearts

From the beginning, Mother’s Mistakes sought urgently to exorcise demons–of whatever type–that chattered in the artists’ ears. “Elegy”, from the groups self-titled album, is a song about racing against time.

“You know that birds, they only fly away
It’s a matter of perspective indefinite
Time moves in a linear fashion
But the human condition moves infinite

You and I, we have but little time before it’s all over
And our stabilities are all abstract
We can’t afford to stoke idle hearts
And regret after the fact”
