There's a light inside my head
Flickering but almost dead
My will to be awake
Covered in two tons of sand
More weighed down than when I began
Impossible to get up now, it's too late

And I feel like moving on
And I feel like getting on with life
To feel the presence of the sun on my face
Is what I need to smack those cobwebs into shape

My room is an empty cave
Darkness swallows up the day
The shades are always drawn
Skin as pale as dirty soap
Eyes that do nothing but close
Can't even see that my love of life is gone

Oh, outside my bed it's cold
Each day I'm swimming through molasses
How will I wipe the sawdust from my eyes?
Each day I'm swimming through molasses

    General CommentI think its about a problem you have or something lurking in the back of your head, and you just cant shake it, you can't stop thinking about it. You want to get all that stuff out of your head, but you can't. You let the problem sink too deep to just forget about it.

    I like this song alot, Tsunami Bomb deserve way more credit than they already have. It'd be sweet if Agent M and Davey Havok did a song together because I don't know it just popped into my head, both their voices are amazing.

    General CommentI think this song is about being in a deep depression and then trying to continue on and feel better about everything, and that during all the depression that the person blamed it on himself. I love the sound of this song and especially that little part at the end
