The decks just build and break
Everybody takes
Here I stand waiting to be moved

Just a problem solved
Slowly it dissovles
The crowd that I'm passing through

It feels so good to feel
There's nothing here that's real

For once in your life
Are you part of this machine
Are you living in this dream
Are you at where I'm at

Everyone is fixed
And callings to the sky
From 2am to 6
A candy-coated high

In the dawn it was clear
You were lost in the night
In the calm that was here
As you're washed in the light

And glad it feels so good to feel
There is nothing here that's real

For once in your life
Do you honestly believe
You could ever leave
Any time that you want

Did you find something deeper
Something profound
It's hard to make sense
Kids sprawled on the ground

Is your new god in front of you
This electrical storm
Is your new god in front of you
Are you dead or reborn

Did you find something deeper
Something profound
The sun's coming up
As we're coming down

In the dawn it was clear
You were lost in the night
In the calm that was here
As you're washed in the light

Feels so good to feel
There's nothing here that's real
For once in your life

    General CommentAs they said at the show before doing this song "this songs about doing drugs." A very good band that puts on a very awsome show.

    General CommentIts clearly about drugs

    Everyone is fixed
    And callings to the sky
    From 2am to 6
    A candy-coated high

    (Thats way obvious)

    For once in your life
    Do you honestly believe
    You could ever leave
    Any time that you want

    (They are talking about the addiction)

    Did you find something deeper
    Something profound
    The sun's coming up
    As we're coming down

    ( The suns coming up as we're coming down, that part is talking about how they did the drugs earlier and now it morning and the effect is wearing off)

    General Commentthe intro sounds like nothing that would resemble coming off of a high. you're just talking to talk.
