it's come to this.
I swear this time my heart won't miss.
I've clinched these fists for far too long.
a broken house.
with gates made from broken promises.
but nobody's home.
so here I sit.
it's the light that wakes me.
but the time that breaks me down.
like water drops.
why won't this stop.
dripping on my halo.
these angel wings of mine.
they haven't seen the light in weeks.
let alone fly.
it's got me down.
and who's gonna save me from falling to the ground.
you might as well finish me.
grab with both hands.
and rip out these wings.
now watch me fall.

    General Commenti think its about a period of continual loss and not getting the chance to live it up much... just waiting to be the happy person you know that you can be. Waiting for all the odds to come over to your side.

    General Commentthis song makes me feel like it's ok to be sad when i hear it while i'm really depressed. it's consolation and an intangible embrace.

    General CommentI think it's about being so depressed that you want to commit suicide. Like you feel as if your never going to be happy again so you might as well end your life. This song reminds me of how I felt when I go through bouts of depression.
