Song Description

Techno/trance-influenced electropop song from Worldview's "Our Condition" album. About a voyeuristic, moor-less tourist of people, places or situations. Travel, searching, restlessness, needing to belong. One of Worldview's most popular tracks, also available in alternate versions. Written, performed and produced by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

You're on a permanent vacation
That's funded by your desperation
The feeling you never do truly belong
You dip your toe in foreign water
At some once-fashionable resort
But you always were a little slow to cotton on

Yeah you're always the last party to arrive
You've been jumping on bandwagons all your life

And you can't stand still
Because you don't know where you stand
And you can't stand still
Because you don't know where you stand
And you can't stand still
No you won't stand still

And out there you can get creative
You're undercover, going native
Mixing almost as well as you think you do
Seduced by all their simple customs
But you won't stop to live among them
That should give you a clue what they think of you

And you can't stand still
Because you don't know where you stand
And you can't stand still
Because you don't know where you stand
And you can't stand still
No you won't stand still
And you can't stand still
Won't you please stand still

And losing yourself in the masses
Won't cure an alienated heart
It's only in your own inner world
That you belong

I think you need to see your rightful home
And then live in it
I think you need to reach your own time zone
And then stick to it

And you can't stand still
Because you don't know where you stand
And you can't stand still
Because you don't know where you stand
And you can't stand still
Because you can't stand what you are
No you can't stand still
Won't you please stand still
