We spend most of our lives relying on promising goodbyes
When morning comes, you'll know exactly what comes next
Silence
If you beg for wings you'll only get shot down

If I resided in clouds, would you come live with me
Float high above all the cares in the world
When it rains you close your eyes
Take a bite from the sun
Burns your heart nearly as bad as your tears

So watch me drive
Together in our finest moments, forever apart
Home with my eyes closed

Live this dream one last time
What is life with hope of tomorrow?
Live this dream one last time
What is life with no hope?

If angels landed and took me with them
Show me the heavens just to drop me to hell
We made it, and maybe it's better you never open your eyes

Live this dream one last time
What is life with hope of tomorrow?
Live this dream one last time
I died from every hope

    General CommentThese guys are absolutely amazing. I saw them live and the guitarist (Rupert?) was spitting like every two seconds and by the end of the show I was covered in spit because I was right in front of him but like after a while it became kind of sexy.

    General Commentyou kids are pretty funny. The guitarists name is Adam. Not Rupert. Well, Rupert is a nickname. He spits alot. I have a few pictures of him spitting at a show. And they once blew fire. photobucket.com/albums/v496/fearbeforefreakinalex/
    It's by the beginning.

    General Commenti think all these events occur after a break up (in our finest moments forever apart) It gets him to thinking, Why be here on earth if your not happy. He fucking gets it perfect with "What is life with no hope of tommorow" And even if u get happiness its all over in the end and you become miserable in hell. The wings im guessing represents someone being a christian foever and devoting their live to their god to see how heaven is, yet he goes to hell in the end anyway. Why start a relationship with god. Maybe its better u never open your eyes to him. Yeah, that kinda went astray but it made sense to me.

    General CommentI think blindside1521 is right.
    I think this song is about so many things in his life going wrong, that he feels like he has nothing to live for, so why be on the earth if his life is so bad? Then when he says, so "watch me drive home... with my eyes closed", makes it seem like he's playing with the idea of suicide. He's not going to kill himself, but he hopes it will happen.
    When he talks about being shown heaven and being dropped to hell, I think that might relate to the thought of many Christians thinking suicide is an unforgivable sin and how he once thought life was going great, which is the heaven part, and then his life started going down the drain, which is the hell part. This could be about his frustrations with God, and why he would let all these bad things happen to him. And that's why he says "and maybe it's better if you never open your eyes". Why does he let all these things happen?

    General Commentdoes anyone know if that piano solo at the end is a classical song, or if it's just something they made up?
