You've had your last regrets
Reached your final depths
Deepest pits
Stepped aside for the world to pass you by
Chose to leave the fear
You are stuck in a world of deadlocks
This time it's real
This time it's for real

This world
Its evil ways
The pain that I hide
Let's make this happen...

Left with the shame
Will somebody out there give me the blame?
Someone...

Show me
It's too far to see
What God made of us
Tell me it's a dream
Was it meant to be this way?

    General CommentI think it's about someone who decided that suicide is the best option. Amazing song, great chorus.

    General CommentKworb, i think your right, but not the best way out - i think they reckon its the only way out. A deadlock is when you cant win - like not winning in life? So life isnt worth living if you cant win, so the only thing they can do is commit suicide.

    And pinkfloyd, i always thought they said "the world around your neck", but i think your right, its "the rope".

    General CommentI just hope that this song might not give these dark ideas of commiting suicide. The ambience and the keyboard sound at the end, seems to somehow give me hope, and like if the message of the lyrics would symbolises the problem, and not give subliminal messages.
