It's a morning evacuation
Being squeezed out between two oceans
Sirens are seducing me awake
An emergency going on
There's an emergency going on
Let's get gone before I went wrong right here

(I caught on, I caught on, I caught on, I caught on) I caught on to
(An instant, an instant, an instant, an instant) An instant burst

And nobody else was around when it happened
So what inspired you tonight?
Is the closest thing to real life in a sunk cave behind your eyes?
An emergency going on
There's an emergency happening
When you're not listening
I'm not really here

(I caught on, I caught on, I caught on, I caught on) I caught on to
(An instant, an instant, an instant, an instant) An instant burst
I caught on, I caught on, I caught on, I caught on
(An instant, an instant, an instant, an instant) An instant burst

It's a morning evacuation (In the morning, make some coffee)
Being squeezed out between two oceans (and read your newspaper section)
Sirens are seducing me awake (and tell me what's going on)
An emergency going on (When you go to work and I go to school)
An emergency going on (do you feel the way I do?)
Let's get gone before I went wrong right here (It's your heartbeat - I'm listening too)

    General CommentThis song is amazing.
    I take it to mean the conflicts between himself and someone else that he's close with, but no one else sees it and perhaps its best ignored.
    I might be looking into the song too deeply though =)
