I know your heart is beating
And all you can do is cry
The words you keep repeating
You think the truth is a lie

You don’t understand why
The world is coming to an end
You think that God is deceiving you
And you wonder where he is

What’s the world gonna be like
If you don’t have a friend?

I wish that I could be
The way you want me to be
And I wish that I could see
The way you want me to see

I sit beside my body
Tears well up in my eyes
I try to grip my fear
But I can’t realize
Ripping
Tearing
Screaming
And crying
Back to my body
Where I’m slowly dying

I wish that I could be
The way you want me to be
And I wish that I could see
The way you want me to see

I wish I could show you the way
Without that will lead you astray

I wish that I could be
The way you want me to be
And I wish that I could see
The way you want me to see

    General Commentcant believe noone's commented on this. This song is instrumentally amazing. the way it opens and all the instruments seem to just drone on independently yet work together so well...Ah, just fantastic. Very very underrated band.

    I have felt the way described in the song.
