Song Description

Death Cab for Cutie style vocals over Aphex Twin style break beats. Trent Reznor style howls in chorus, followed by drum/synth solo. The lyrics reference the loneliness felt by everyone when their ancestors are gone, and they don't have children yet. The longing you feel, and the hope that somebody will come and save you from your solitude.

Story Behind the Song

Written in a college dorm room at Santa Clara University by Daniel Finfer in 2005, but finally produced by Daniel Anderson of Idiot Pilot in 2010 for the band Ancient Lasers.


I talk to my ancestors so I know where I've been
I talk to descendants so I know where I'm going
And I feel like I'm living
In a cage that I can't see
I found the lock,
but I still can't find the key

So I sit, and I wait for you to let me out
And I hope you remember to wake me up
When its over

I wont see the light from the hole that I will dig
I know that I'm older, but I feel the way I did
Long ago

So I sit, and I wait for you to let me out
And I hope you remember to wake me up
When its over
