She's rising and I'm sinking.
I'm losing sleep, She's resting sound
in bed with such variety.
I'm driving and She's finding
that She'll survive when I'm long gone.
Do I stay in your mind at least?

There's so much time and nowhere left to go.
She's overcompensating for what She can never let go of.
There's so much time and nowhere left to go.
Am I just an escape for time to pass through?

She's lying and I'm thinking.
She's trying to forget it all
a memory of the past I'll be.
I'm buying that she's trying
the threat is clear and growing strong.
I dream to have such clarity.

It's all I'm thinking about
I guess I'll figure it out
I'll think I'll drink to each new lesson.
Ignore the passing of days
eventually I'll fade
and in the end, it's just a lesson.

    General CommentShe's doing fine with out him but he's still losing sleep thinking about her because he isn't over her. Get it? "I'm losing sleep, she's resting sound" Just like me....

    General CommentYeah, but then what does the line "she's overcompensating for what she can never let go of" mean? I think it's about how he thinks she's doing fine, but really she's as torn up as him, and wants to forget it and cant.

    General Commentthis song is awesome. All of their songs are. "it's all i'm thinking about i guess i'll figure it out i'll think i'll drink to each new lesson ignore the passing of days eventually i'll fade and in the end it's just a lesson"--This song sums up every freakn' relationship I get in. I end up like thinking she's the one, then obcessing about why it isn't working, and then i'm like ok. I learned from it, now let's move on...but I never do.

    General Comment"in bed with such variety"
    there's a nice sneaky way of saying she's sleeping around
