I love this track from a great band. It is electronic, and very cinematic and grand. It really connects me to all of the pieces of myself, particularly the little ones.

To me, it represents that time in between battles, the calm after a victory. But, the sense that there is more to be done ahead.

It is also about our stories not being over yet. But, it also about listening to those parts of us inside, particularly the kids, that have fought the good fight already in the early chapters of our story. They have already experienced what we are now trying to fight. And we carry them forward with us into the next battle and honor their sacrifices. Just like our older selves will honor what we do today.

I don't know, maybe I read too much into it. But, this song just makes me goosebump all over and feel ready for the next fight.

Intro
We didn't need a story
We didn't need a real world
We just had to keep walking
And we became the stories
We became the places
We were the lights
The deserts
The faraway worlds
We were you before you even existed

Carry on, carry on,
Carry on
And after us the flood

Carry on, carry on,
Carry on
Our silver horn it leads the way

Banners of gold
Shine
In the cold
In the cold
In the cold

Footprints of snow
Blind from the road
Fade

We carry on, carry on
Follow us, we are one
The battle's fought
The deed is done
Our silver hum runs dark and strong
Hand to the heart
Lips to the horn
We can save
We can be reborn
Head on my breast
I'll keep you warm
Safe

M83 - from the album "Hurry Up, We're Dreaming"

Thanks for that. Can't believe how many times I've listened to this and never really paid any attention to the lyrics.
